"a new approach to living

the wisdom of the enneagram"

1/3

Why a new approach?

A completely unique and visual way to live the wisdom of the Enneagram.

 

Whilst the Enneagram is a very powerful and accurate map of the personality or ego structure, it does not tell us how to work through the terrain it describes and achieve the inner freedom it promises.  

Working through the Enneagram only happens through inner work that encompasses both psychological understanding as well as a practice with a spiritual orientation. The My Map Method is an approach that offers both.

What is the My Map Method?

At its core, the My Map Method is about practicing the inner freedom the Enneagram promises. 

It is a physical map and works in the same way a traditional map works, by acting as a visual guide. The psychological terrain it helps you navigate is the hectic and noisy mechanism of your habitual personality traits or ego, and it charts your route back to the peace and aliveness of your true self.

 

Using your map alongside a practice called the R.E.S.T. Process (a guided practice with a spiritual orientation) the My Map Method it is designed to transform your everyday experiences and bring you inner freedom.

The first step is to find your Map...

My Map to Freedom has taken the 9 personality types of the Enneagram and transformed them into nine physical maps. The first step is to find yours... If you already know which type you are, scroll and follow the right link to get sight of your map. If you are new to the Enneagram, take the simple test below. Feel free to read about all the maps, especially if you find the questions in the test difficult to answer.
