About the Book

This book offers you important questions that impact your personal and professional life and bears witness to how people of different Enneagram styles have found or are finding their own answers. Over the years, Mary interviewed people of all nine Enneagram styles about their everyday experience of the transformation process. In the beginning, she thought the path would be somewhat linear, even expected there might be a point of arrival. From our own experience and reflections by our clients we’ve found that observing and letting go of habitual patterns is a complex and continuing journey. In Paths Beyond Ego John Engler wrote, “You have to be somebody before you can be nobody, suggesting we can’t surrender our ego-patterns until we’ve developed a sense of self and can begin to see how that self operates. This explains what we’ve found in these interviews. In keeping with the subject matter, we have opted for a simple format. Each of the nine main chapters contains two stories of how representatives of that Enneagram style are seeking and finding answers to the Somebody? Nobody? conundrum. Rounding out each chapter, CJ has added a brief commentary that underlines the major shifts in the stories from an Enneagram perspective and provides a few questions to ponder. We close by reflecting on our own journeys and how development of the book has impacted us.
