Marcus Johns Learns He's Not in Control (Enneagram 8)
The Enneagram is a wonderful instrument that helps us develop self-awareness and self-knowledge that allows us to move through the world more intelligently, with more love and compassion, but it doesn’t define us. It helps us develop an internal witness who can stand back and observe when we need to make a different choice or action. So, when life throws you a curveball, as it did for our guest, Marcus Johns, the Enneagram allows us to shift our perspective and let go of what is not in our control.
Lee and Laura Camp on Healing with the Enneagram (Type 1 and 8)

Today, Lee and Laura Camp share how the Enneagram helped them get into a healthy space and healed their relationship.
