    BHE 027 - ASTROLOGY: What’s Your Sign Baby? - Odinaka Ezeokoli

    We need to talk about astrology y’all. Od, a comedian and astrologer, is with us this week to help us explore what insights astrology has for inner work. First, we address skepticism of astrology. What astrology is looking at vs the enneagram. What is astrology and how does it work? What are the 3 most important aspects of a natal chart? Collective astrology and the coronavirus. Racism and America’s shadow Pluto Return. Od’s journey from the enneagram to astrology. Gurdjieff and the significance of cosmic events for inner work. And we wrap up with the astrological vibe of our BHE crew.

    BHE 026 - RECAP: Type Interview Insights and Shit Talk

    BHE 026 - RECAP: Type Interview Insights and Shit Talk

    This week we’re recapping what we've learned from our series of type interviews. We start out on the nature of type wings. The introspective inner beam of 4 and the ‘in the dark’ quality of types fully in the gap. The parallels between 9s and 3s absorbing and taking in outside perspectives as their own. The universal quality of the 369 Bermuda types and their connection to people. The self-orientation of the hexad types. The perception of 8s as confident vs how they experience themselves on the inside. And we wrap up with why 4 is the Chad/Stacy of the enneagram.

    BHE 025 - Black Lives Matter and the Enneagram

    BHE 025 - Black Lives Matter and the Enneagram

    This week we’re talking about the Black Lives Matter protests. How to confront racism and its parallels to inner work and the enneagram. How actively working to undo unconscious racism is inner work. Race and Class as personality types and unconscious biases that have to be uncovered and faced the same way we do our enneagram types. Wanting to be healthy and good as a bypass to the finish line vs educating ourselves and confronting what needs changing continually. We wrap up with a story of how racial profiling sent cops with guns to Emeka's apartment.

    BHE 024 /- Stairway to Seven -\ Colleen & Fernanda

    We finally wrangled a couple of 7s to join us to dive into the heart of 7. The dark side of 7 that people don’t get to see. The sudden whiplash when 7s get frustrated and critical. The unexpressed guilt of 7s, and how it’s expressed for 7w6 vs 7w8. What social and sexual 7s are like. How 7s experience the passage of time. And we wrap up with some shit talking.

    BHE 023 - Gurdjieff and the Origin of the Enneagram - John Luckovich

    Gurdjief’s discovery of the enneagram symbol in Egypt. What the symbol means and the cosmic laws it represents. The enneagram of process explained. The difference between essence vs personality. Personality as the unbalanced use of the three centers of intelligence.

If you’re a 9, this podcast is FOR YOU

This podcast contains the most accurate descriptions and insights for 9s. If you think you’re a 9 or confused about your type, LISTEN TO THIS. It’s helped me solidify my typing as a 9 and to realize I’m not a 4 or 2. Thanks guys!

My favorite Enneagram podcast

The fact that the Enneagram is not anyone’s intellectual property is a gift and a curse.

The curse: anyone can write whatever they want about it. See: most #enneagram instagram posts, and find mostly regurgitated factoids that range from simplistic to inaccurate to absurd (e.g. “What kind of plant is best for your enneagram type?!”).

The gift: sometimes, extremely talented, intelligent, earnest explorers advance our understanding through fresh explanations of its core truths and deep new insights.

This podcast is such a gift.

John, Emeka, David, and Nancy are fantastic. Their expertise is based not just on years of extensive research but on decades of personal inquiry and sincere inner work. They are simultaneously reverent and irreverent — honoring the purpose of the Enneagram to illuminate the authentic nature of our inner worlds, but doing so without pretense, affect, or bias toward positivity. They are also hilarious and grungy, and as per their theme song, they've "got a little freakiness inside."

If you’re looking for amazing content that clarifies the fundamentals while pushing the envelope, you can’t do better than this.
