Live a wild, crazy, meaningful life by exploring the Enneagram!
Stop living on autopilot and start living a wild, crazy, meaningful life! The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding your personality type, but that’s only the beginning. The Enneagram also points you toward the path to unlock your highest potential, and gives you a map for avoiding the obstacles that could trip you up.
I’m your host Pace Smith, The Pathfinding Coach, and this is Kyeli, my feisty mermaid sidekick.
Together, we GET HYPE about the Enneagram! This is not some dry, stuffy, academic podcast. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about the Enneagram, but we’ll do it in a friendly, accessible way. We’ll explain the jargon, we’ll show you how you can apply the Enneagram to your life, and we’ll make lots of dorky jokes.
There’s so much to say about the Enneagram that we’ve got something for everyone, whether you’re a newbie or an Enneagram expert. (If you’re a newbie, you might want to start with episode 1 before you dive into the middle.)
- Sometimes, the two of us will teach you about an Enneagram-related topic, and show you how it can help you live a wild, crazy, meaningful life.
- Sometimes, we’ll have a conversation with a well-respected Enneagram teacher.
- Sometimes, we’ll have a conversation with a normal human being (or a panel of normal human beings) about how the Enneagram shows up in their day-to-day life.
We’ll mix it up and keep it fresh.
We publish a new episode every Wednesday morning, so listen in and we’ll explore the Enneagram together!
Today’s guest, with whom we’ll be chillin’

- VUCA: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous (Dan Siegel)
- we don’t have to choose between science and spirituality – we can have our cake and eat it too
- what it means to bring a more scientific mindset into our study of, and work with the Enneagram
- how this can benefit the Enneagram field of study in general
- how this can benefit me, the listener, in my work with the Enneagram. Why not just ignore everything you’re saying and get back to doing what I know works?
