Review: The Journey Toward Wholeness

The Journey Toward Wholeness: Enneagram Wisdom for Stress, Balance, and Transformation by Suzanne Stabile

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Enneagram is an immersive approach to personality discernment that is aimed at personal transformation. The approach is about so much more than just 9 ‘types’ or ‘numbers’. Stabile goes deeper into the Enneagram in this book, talking about Triads and Stances, going into detail for each number, offering practical suggestions for wholeness. She shares personal stories in each chapter that help us understand more fully the concepts and the pathways toward bringing up repressed centers of intelligence.

I’m not an Enneagram expert, only having read a few books and talked about it with a lot of people. But this book gave me some clarity. Still, I can see there is much to learn – mostly about myself. As I read through the information about each number I could identify with some of each … and it caused me to question my own orientation toward my number. I thought maybe I was wrong. But then I read the chapters that related to my number and I knew that there was so much to identify with that I am correct.

Now that gives me some soul work to do…. as Stabile says often … to know what is mine to do, and what is not. Highly recommended. Oh, Enneagram 9w1.
