"What stands between me and God?" This is the provocative question to which the Enneagram system offers a sophisticated answer. There are nine basic personality types, explains Helen Palmer, a foremost authority on the Enneagram. Each type has its own "emotional survival strategy" developed to help us cope in life-but this strategy can also be an obstacle to achieving our fullest spiritual unfoldment. The Enneagram system allows us to recognize our personality structure and our spiritual barriers, and to transform them into a path to virtue. "If I change the structure," says Palmer, "all of the different categories of my life will change accordingly." (hosted by Michael Toms)
