These pages are offered in joyful celebration of a wonderful tool, symbol, and mystical system called the enneagram. Follow this site (button is at the bottom) to receive email updates as new content is added.


enneagram 101 is an introductory course including the basic principles, descriptions of personality types and wings, levels of balance and more. Read the first nine pages for the basics, then dive into the type descriptions.

I’m always interested in new pictures for enneagram 101. If you have some (royalty free please!) to donate or suggest that you think might fit in, send them along!

intuitive enneagram is about the immediate, real-time, direct perception of the enneagram in ourselves, in other beings, and in the world.

Can a well-asked question
be more powerful than an answer?

Do you have any questions?

[ will there be more questions? ]

person of the moment inquires into the personalities of people who are famous, fictional, or who can be found online.
[ person of the moment will begin when it’s time ]

format of posts and pages
This site works best on desktop and tablet screens, where the right and left aligned images always show up correctly. If you are on a phone or other narrow-display device, I suggest turning the display so that it is wider from left to right (landscape mode) for the most readable experience. You might also find that increasing your browser’s text size is helpful. There is a lot of text in these pages.

a note about updates
In addition to running Intuitive Enneagram, I am also the resident naturalist and property manager at Willowspring, a private nature preserve and retreat center in northwest Oregon. During the spring and summer months I am frequently very busy outdoors, continuing the evolution of our landscape. As a result, updates to this site may be sparse between roughly March and September. During October through February, I usually have much more time to work online, and updates to this site may come more frequently, and in larger chunks.
