Enneagram

The name enneagram means "drawing of nine" and comes from two Greek words: ennea meaning "nine" and gram meaning "drawing" or "figure." The Enneagram is a nine-pointed figure inscribed in a circle. The meaning of the symbol itself, together with the personality types organized around the nine points, convey a system of knowledge about nine distinct but interrelated personality types, or nine ways of seeing and experiencing the world.

The Enneagram of personality types is a psycho-spiritual system for mapping the nine possible personalities, like nine facets of a stone that develop through the natural growth of the human psyche.

The Enneagram symbol is said to be thousands of years old. It is composed of three parts, the circle, the inner triangle, and the "periodic figure." According to esoteric spiritual tradition, the circle symbolizes unity, the inner triangle symbolizes the "law of three," and the hexagonal periodic figure represents the "law of seven." These three elements constitute the Enneagram.

The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness, and 'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and 'will' cannot evolve involuntarily. The evolution of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'. - G. I. Gurdjieff
