Welcome to the Enneagram Institute of Sydney
The Enneagram is a powerful approach to understanding the psychology, emotions and behaviour of ourselves and others.
The Enneagram symbol, a nine-pointed diagram (ennea is the Greek word for 'nine'), has its origins in many different traditions. In the last four decades it has been combined with modern psychology, evolving to describe the nine fundamental personality types of human nature. The modern Enneagram is a condensation of universal wisdom, commonsense philosophy and psychology which provides extraordinary insights into human behaviour, particularly our own. The primary goal and purpose of the Enneagram is self knowledge; its ancillary benefit is that it allows us to understand the behaviour of others, and with that understanding, to be more accepting and compassionate.
The Enneagram is a reminder that we do not have to remain captive to the dictates of personality, but can relax into the awareness of true essence and the experience of Love.
The Enneagram is not a religion and it will not interfere with any religious orientation.
