In what ways can the Enneagram reveal the inherent paradoxes and contradictions within each personality type? How can this open up pathways to exit trap cycles and opportunities for our deepest developments as individuals and as part of the wider community, whilst also challenging tendencies to oversimplify paradox work?
We welcome back the lovely Samantha Mackay to the podcast to build on the previous episode on the Enneagram and personality mapping, focusing on a very complex but integral part of the tool - paradoxes. In this deeply inspiring and wonderfully detailed episode, Samantha guides us through the process of identifying and breaking down contradictions for each of the nine Enneagram types by giving practical examples of trap cycles for each and some of ways we can begin to transform our internalised patterns by allowing ourselves permission to change.
Samantha is a personal development coach at Individuo, incorporating the Enneagram into her integrative approach to inner work. She came to this work through a journey of recovering from chronic pain, illness and anxiety and discovering that in order to shift her pain she needed to master a range of skills that strengthened her inner resilience. On her multi-year journey of recovery, Samantha has learnt that some treatments act like a short term bandaids and others provided more permanent healing. She incorporates the Enneagram into her work for this very reason; it helps us invest our time, energy and resources into inner work that provides true relief.
For a more comprehensive insight into the Enneagram, listen to the previous episode before tuning into this one.
