Episode Description

It's hard to think that we all as a human race fit into 9 different types... until you start to dip your toe into the proverbial pool that are the instincts and subtypes. It is here that we can see our personalities a layer deeper, and also understand our behavior and various shades- all boiling down to the ways in which we act and react (among so many other things). If you've heard the terms Social, Sexual, One-to-one or Self Preservation, or have seen someone declare they are a SX, SO or SP Type X but had no idea what in the heck they were saying, you are going to want to tune in. And even if you DO know what that means, you are still going to want to tune in. Why? Great question. Joining me for this episode is, in my opinion, the absolute expert in this space, Bea Chestnut herself. Join us live as we dig in, and remember, you can call in with questions at 40 after the hour, 1-888-346-9141. We hope you can tune in!

The Traveling Enneagram

Thursday at 12 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

Ever wanted to know what makes you, YOU? Why you think and feel the way you do, and more important what the motivation for your behavior is? And when you know this about yourself, what do you DO with the information? Learning about your Enneagram type helps answer these questions and so much more, including the practical application from the way we speak, how we navigate conflict, give and receive feedback, make decisions... the list goes on! When we know this about ourselves, we can show up as the best version of ourselves possible by starting the inner work. It's this work that helps us be the best partner, parent, leader- the best person we can be, in every aspect of our lives. As an Enneagram Practitioner, I teach this every day of my own life. Oh, and I happen to live full-time in a camper and really love teaching people what that hashtag CamperLife is all about. Join me on this journey to presence, and some really good camping tips!

First and foremost, I am a dog mom to 4, and 2 on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, wife to a crazy but awesome counterphobic type you, Justin, and a lover of everything outdoors. I'm also a recovering people-pleaser who quit the corporate lifestyle a few years ago to live this one seemingly too short life I have to the absolute fullest. In doing so, I have also lived full-time in a camper, traveling the U.S. I also got to fall full-time into my life's passion- teaching the Enneagram and all of the wonderful applications that opens up in your life once you understand yourself a little more. From personal development to growth as a couple to professional development as a leader- team growth too, even to working with incarcerated individuals in the Enneagram Prison Project - my goal is simple. Help people like you understand the motivation for your behavior (from our superpowers to our liabilities and everything in between), discover ways together to grow and challenge old stories, and become the best version of us possible. And I get to do all of this from less than 400 square feet of space, living my own life to the absolute fullest.
