Summary More than just a discussion of Enneagram numbers this handbook utilizes harmony triads to lead to greater spiritual and relational transformation and offers recommendations for spiritual practices suitable for Bringing the Empire Home each number and triadThere have been a host of books published in recent years on the Enneagram including several from this publisher This may be both the most comprehensive resource out there on the different numbers the term used for your type and one that takes a novel approach using what the authors call harmony triads Unlike traditional approaches that have arrows to and from a number reflecting where one goes under conditions of integration or disintegration this approach uses triangles whereach number connects to a number three ahead or behind it allowing access to what are called the Gut the Heart and the Head triads For xample someone who is Enneagram number 2 called Love here in the Heart Triad also has access to the Wisdom of a 5 and the Strength of an 8 The writers repeatedly mphasize that we are all than our number and that balancing the strengths of head I heart E and gut G helps us move toward greater integration and relational wholeness and away from the vice of our numberAfter providing a brief overview and section on key terms important to keep a bookmark in for reference the book devotes a chapter to Building the Cold War each number beginning with a description and seven sections1 Who am I and who am I not Offers a list of descriptors and invites us to sit with these and how they resonate2 True self and false self Describes how we act under impulsive and compulsive reactions stemming from our owngo and how we may act out of love of God ourselves and others3 Harmony How to integrate Head Heart and Gut for our type leading to FLOW Free Loving Open to head heart and gut With God and reality as it is4 Healing childhood hurts Helps Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F) each number process where they were dismissed as a child andxperience healing5 Discernment desolations and consolations How to use Counter-Amores each of our intelligences to understand how wexperience the presence and absence of God6 Spiritual rhythms Practices that address Dancing at Armageddon each number7 Empathy This isspecially for others close to a person of a particular number helping in understanding that number with practical pointers for relating to that numberThe last part of the book offers twelve soul resources Most offer uniue information for Double Jeopardy each number forxample how Composition and Literature each number may STOP See Triggers Open Presence in the face of stress I found the varied responses of different numbers to silence and solitude both amusing and painfully on the money There are several for different types of prayer one forxamen one for practicing the presence of God one on work styles a summary chart of the harmony triads tips for finding one s Enneagram number and small group discussions for using the Cezanne and Provence empathy section ofach chapterThis is not a book to read straight through Reading slowly and reflectively through Dark Voices each number helps usxercise better Contested Reproduction empathy forach number and can be helpful for the person who does not yet know there own number Working section by section through one s own number and the other two numbers in one s harmony triad can offer much self understanding Woven through the seven sections in Divided by Color (American Politics and Political Economy Series) each chapter are personal testimonies of people with that number and their transformational journey Alsoach chapter has several scripture readings and prayers woven throughoutAll four of the authors two couples are Enneagram instructors and it is Creating Country Music evident that this text comes out of countless seminars and personal interactions and reflects that kind of wisdom Because this is not an introductory Enneagram book they only spend a brief time on background of the Enneagram and do not offer a rationale for the use of the Enneagram I would recommend this for someone who believes the Enneagram to be a useful tool for self understanding and spiritual growth For me the harmony triads or at least the integration of head heart and gut made good sense I found the adaptation of spiritual practices toach number and the Blacklands empathy section on relating toach number most helpful Overall I think this is one of the best resources that I ve seen in print for groups and individuals who want to go deeper with the EnneagramDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have Evolutionary Patterns expressed are my own The Enneagram is such a powerful tool for practical day to day relationships as well as spiritual understanding and personal transformation Knowing your number is just the beginning It s a starting place and importantly an invitation to a journey of self development and self awareness Doug and Adele Calhoun and Clare and Scott Loughrige have written a book with a uniue focus that helpsach of us delve into our core It is an amazing resource and tool for anyone hoping to take their knowledge of their number to a deeper level of understanding for themselves and for their relationships I have personally Evolution As Entropy enjoyed and really benefitted from the Enneagram teachings to improve relationships with my spouse children friends work colleagues andxtended family I am grateful for this resource I had the opportunity to read an advance copy of Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram and found it to be a valuable resource It is definitely not for someone new to the Enneagram For them I would recommend introductory texts But for those who want to study deeply I recommend this book It has a decidedly Christian perspective so that is something to keep in mind In this book the authors present a new and fresh look at how the Enneagram can be applied to our lives and in particular The Enneagram opens a remarkable window into the truth about us nabling us to see how image wounds lies triggers and default responses shape us very bit as much as our faith But simply diagnosing our number doesn't do justice to who we are Nor does it necessarily change us or our relationships Transformation happens as.
Ing saturated by books on the Enneagram IVP publishes yet another one on this intriguing tool on the road to self discovery And Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram definitely deserves its placeThe value of this book is first of all in its wide range of practical resources and practices for Forbidden History each number on the spectrum the Enneagram offers nine different personality types with a myriad of possibilities for growth It really is a book for those followers of Jesus who are on a journey to deepen their faith desiring to see their lives transformed and help others who are traveling with them I found the breath prayers forach type to be specially helpful The second way Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram stands out is that it does not focus on the traditional Enneagram model which looks at these nine types within the Heart Gut and Head Triads but brings three so called Harmony Triangles into view The authors do a wonderful job in trying to help their readers not only to get a handle on their own type or to be able to understand people who occupy a different space on the Enneagram They really try to help us who have discovered our own place within a triad to see how we can grow into wholeness by leaning into the wisdom or Intelligence the other two triads offerI would not recommend this book to Enneagram newbees although it does offer suggestions how to find the space on the Enneagram that might be most true to you To get a good introduction to this intricate model consider The Road Back to You written with flair and humor by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile or Mirror for the Soul by Alice Fryling both also by IVP It is however an xcellent resource for spiritual directors coaches pastors and other Christians who already have some knowledge of the EnneagramThe lay out reminds of another Esteem Enlivened by Desire excellent resource by author Adele Ahlberg Calhoun the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Like this one that book also used columns on the pages which compares reading it like a magazine Not sure if I like that but it somehow fits with the idea of a resource book this is definitely not a work that you would read through all at once but rather you would use to study as you try to get to know yourself better and are resourcing yourself as you desire to come alongside others with love and humilityGiven the lay out of the book you probably don t want to invest in a Kindle version Usually I don t buy a paper copy after I ve read a digital version but I did order Spiritual Rhythms and as it launches on March 12thxpect it soon in the mail In order to review this book I received a digital version from IVP through Netgalley The views are Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith entirely my own As a life coach certified in the Enneagram I ve read LOTS of books on the topic this one is different It is packed full of resources and spiritual practices that gently guide you toward growth and transformation A must have resource for anyone desiring to become their truest best self and for Helping Professionals who work with others on the journey of transformation A new interesting handbook for the EnneagramAdele Ahlberg Calhoun Doug Calhoun Clare Loughrige and Scott Loughrige present in Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram A Handbook for Harmony and Transformation published by Intervarsity Press a handbook that is a powerful tool for daily relationships spiritual understanding and personal transformation In reality this book is far than a handbook it is a workbook The definitions key terms based on a Christian perspective which are added at the beginning of the book help to understand the presentation of the authors The book shows which Harmony Triad is based on which Enneagram type It is different from other books which use the typical Enneagram structureg where type four is linked to type two and type one In Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram type four is linked in a harmony triad to type seven and type one It is helpful that they placed a graphic of the Traditional Enneagram and the Harmony Enneagram next to one another in the introductionEvery Enneagram type has its own chapter that includes sub titles such as Who am I and who I am not True and false self Healing childhood hurts Spiritual Rhythms for and Empathy for Although the authors ncourage the reader to read the whole book this approach helps if readers do not want to read the whole book in one setting because they are looking for information of a specific type The chapters are in the order of how the types present themselves in the graphic 1 G The Instinctive Triad ight nine one 2 E The Feeling Triad two three four and 3 I The Thinking Triad five six sevenIn the fourth part of the book the authors have added thirteen Soul Resources for Harmony Included there are one short chapter on how to discover one s Enneagram type and one chapter with uestions for small group discussions on They Shall Be One Flesh empathy These add to the tips which are already included inach chapter on how to relate to a particular Enneagram typeI highly recommend this book since it is based on a Christian perspective contains application
