Publisher's Summary

For all the ways we live unawakened lives, the enneagram is here to help.

The Sacred Enneagram is a trustworthy, richly insightful guide to finding yourself in the enneagram's 9-type profiles, and applying this practical wisdom for a life transformed. Far more than a personality test, author Chris Heuertz writes, the enneagram is a sacred map to the soul. Lies about who we think we are keep us trapped in loops of self-defeat. But the enneagram offers a bright path to cutting through the internal clutter and finding our way back to God and to our true identity as God created us.

Chris Heuertz' life was forever changed after he learned about the enneagram 15 years ago. Today, he leads enneagram workshops all over the world. Join Chris as he shows you how this ancient tool can help you awaken to the gifts God has given you, find freedom from your personal patterns of sin and fear, and grow in acceptance of your identity as you grow with God.

In conversational style with compelling stories, The Sacred Enneagram will show you

  • How to understand the 'why' behind your type, beyond caricatures and stereotypes
  • How to align your type with prayer postures
  • How to identify and find freedom from self-destructive patterns
  • How to grow in spiritual discernment
  • How to face your past wounds and step toward healing
  • How to awaken your unique gifts to serve today's broken world

Chris's own journey with the enneagram is an accessible introduction and exploration of how the enneagram can change your life, because to the extent that we are transformed, the world will be transformed.

A Pretty Good Book, Not a Great Audiobook

The book gives a decent overview of the Enneagram, its history, and its implications. The overview of each of the nine identity structure types, however, was wanting. It’s as if the author assumes the reader already knows quite a bit about the enneagram. As is unfortunately often the case with modern Christian literature, the same point was made repeatedly with slightly different wording. It didn’t help that the author repeated words and phrases throughout, an issue only amplified by the biggest problem with this audiobook: the narrator.
The narrator’s attempt to convey the author’s meaning with his voice was absolutely horrible. His inflection made it difficult to tell when one sentence ended and the next began. His whispery emphasis on unimportant words distracted from the point of a sentence. I found myself repeatedly going back and listening to entire sections over after realizing that the way it was narrated is not how it should have been read.
Overall, I would not recommend this audiobook. I would only recommend the physical book to those who have not first looked at more established places for information on the Enneagram and its application in our spiritual and personal development (Richard Rohr, the Enneagram Institute, to name a couple).

Assumes prior Enneagram knowledge.

Narration was kinda monotone, but good content. Unless you already have a working understanding of the Enneagram, don't read it as it builds on prior knowledge. Would recommend "The Road Back to You" by Suzanne Stabile and Ian Cron as a great intro to the Enneagram.

No accompanying documents!

This book is tough to understand because it explains a visual concept without any diagrams or pictures. I am still unsure about many of the thoughts and ideas because I don't fully grasp what they are. Also, I have some reservations about the ”Sacredness" of the Enneagram. This was the first book I have ever read the book topic I recommend starting with a different book if this is your first time learning about the Enneagram. However, if you are already familiar with the topic, this is probably an excellent book for you.

Disappointed

I was really excited about listening to this book but unfortunately it didn’t deliver. Several times throughout I found myself thinking “get on with it already.” He did a lot of meandering and the entire book read like an introduction to something more substantive that never materalized. I kept listening long after I wanted to because I kept thinking surely the more specific material that explained how was on its way. I gave it 3 stars because there were a couple times where he actually got out of his own way & provided some enlightening information.

Struggled to find enneagram type

I struggled to find my enneagram type at first. I felt like I related to so many different numbers. This book helped me to understand the enneagram outside of the other resources I have already ready and I finally figured out what number I am! The way the types are described in this book are extremely helpful and I'm so glad this resource was recommended to me along with the podcast enneasummer. Both have been amazing in finding the right traits that I relate to and understanding my past. I love the enneagram!

Religious not spiritual

Between quoting scriptures, speaking about God, sin and prayer - for me this book was based in Christianity not spirituality. Great narration though and it might me amazing for those looking for personality traits within religious context.

Get the physical book

Chris Heuertz is incredibly passionate about the Enneagram but that does not come through the narrator in the audiobook. This book is more advanced learning about the Enneagram so if you’re new to it,
I’d suggest learning more before reading/listening to this book. Chris discusses each type in the Sleeping at Last podcasts - they’re worth looking into if you want to hear descriptions from him.

Good information on the Enneagram

Very good book on the enneagram, excellent narrator. The material was dense and for that reason works best in written rather than audio format.

Incredible

I love this book. I have periodically studied the Ennegram for over 25 years, with various authors. This comprehensive approach makes so much sense, in ways that others have not.. SO wise, so helpfu in truly understanding the Enneagram.
