Are You Ready To Move From Confusion to Clarity to Confidence?

As the Enneagram grows in popularity, its origins have become a hot topic in churches and on social media. Some claim that the Enneagram is an ancient Christian tool. Others say it is a not-so-sacred occultist tool created by spirits or demons. Is it possible to know?

Join me in exploring the real history of the Enneagram as we debunk common myths and misunderstandings along the way.

After much in-depth research, I found that the Enneagram is not that mysterious or confusing. Whether you are looking for a fascinating history lesson on the Enneagram or seeking answers to common objections, this course is for you! I want to equip you as a coach or enthusiast to confidently use the Enneagram in your personal or professional work.
