dc.description.abstractThe aim of this work is to integrate formation with personality utilizing the nine Enneagram Types. Humans are diverse and need a pathway to formation, which reflect that reality. Once one assesses their Enneagram type, engaging practices, narratives and rhythms will further conform them into Christ-likeness. Part One will describe the origins and purpose of the Enneagram. Whereas this particular personality theory was not birthed within Christian origins, it is universally applicable regardless of religion, language, gender and ethnicity. Further, to utilize the Enneagram for the purpose of transformation in the Christian tradition is helpful because, unlike some other personality theories, it reveals human weakness and not merely strengths. Assessing type, the vices and virtues within each type, and the wings that give each Type uniqueness, one can come to terms with his impact in the world. Part Two seeks to pair each of the nine types with germane biblical narratives. It will also correlate figures from the Bible for comparison purposes. The practices for each Type that come easily are referred to as “downstream” practices. The practices for each Type, which require more effort due to conflict with personality, are referred to as “upstream” practices. Both are necessary for growth. Part Three of the project will detail an Enneagram and practices workshop and subsequent focus group from Trinity Grace Church Chelsea. After one’s type is assessed she will begin practices. Committing to one month of rhythmic practice in the various prescribed spiritual disciplines, the results will then be collected, and the process edited for further use in ministry.
