Publisher's Summary

For the Enneagram enthusiast looking to deepen their transformation, The Enneagram of Belonging offers an enlightening, enriching path forward.

Many have discovered the Enneagram to be a powerful tool for self-understanding, yet knowing ourselves doesn't necessarily mean we accept ourselves. Most of us tend to curate the personality of our type: leading with the traits we perceive as positive, and sidelining the traits that cause us shame. 

But what if it all belonged? Rather than furthering our own fragmentation, what if we dared to make peace with the whole of who we are with bold compassion? The Enneagram of Belonging is your guide to this essential journey.

While most contemporary Enneagram books stop at the descriptions of the nine types, Enneagram teacher and The Sacred Enneagram best-selling author Chris Heuertz uncovers the missing link in our journey of living into our true self: radical self-compassion that can bring us back to belonging.

Rather than get stuck on stereotypes or curated personality, Heuertz proposes we develop an honest relationship with our type, confronting our "inner dragons," practicing self-compassion, and thereby coming to fully belong to ourselves - and, ultimately, to love itself.

In this in-depth examination of the Enneagram of Personality, you will discover:

  • A fresh, compassionate way of understanding your childhood wound, which Heuertz reframes as your Kidlife Crisis
  • Your unique subtype and how this colors your dominant type, plus how to work with your Enneagram instinct
  • Practical insight to help you find freedom from your type's passions and fixations
  • Your personalized path back to belonging, as you come home to your true self
  • And much more....

As a masterful mapmaker and trailblazer of grace, Heuertz casts a vision for how we can create a better world. The truth is how we treat ourselves is how we treat others, so let's start with compassion, and let this outflow into our relationships, communities, and world.

Interesting but please let someone else read it !

I am very much interested in a content , but find it very hard to listen to the author read it. He swallows his words and the intonation is off.

So rich! Excellent explanation of Enneagrams.

The author introduces the essential concepts and language for the critical task of understanding and accepting all the facets of oneself. Listeners are presented with a very approachable and powerful tool that can support the hardest and most critical work we will ever have to do. The author digests the fascinating history and the powerful insights of the Enneagram in a surprisingly short amount of time given the richness and complexities of the tool. That would be enough for me, but I also found this book to be an oasis. I have thirsted for a way to describe the disconnectedness I experienced in my communities like my church or my family. I was supposed to belong, but I didn’t feel like I did. It’s been painful beyond words. I’ll be listening to this again. It won’t be because I need to know my number or that of others. It’s because I am on that journey of becoming. The author offers some beautiful tools for a practice that starts with me accepting all of myself and expands to accepting all others. That is the belonging I need and want. That is my work. That healing clarity is priceless.

Lord, Christopher. The narration.

I love the enneagram, respect Heuretz's work. All that. But his own narration of his work... it's like a male valley girl. SO distracting and annoying. I just have not been able to get past it. Please, please get someone else to read this.

Compassionate and knowledgeable perspective

Chris provide compassionate and knowledgeable perspective on individuals through the enneagram. He adds depth to the enneagram that is new to me and creates hope for positive change and fullness of life while being true to the way God has made me. Thank you Chris for this body of work.
