The Enneagram & Empowerment: Through the BIPOC Experience
August 18, 2022
Hosted by Nikki Meyers
We have learned so far in our journey into the Enneagram that understanding ourselves and others creates a space for compassion and empathy, and also a space to see people for the goodness that lies within them. What we haven't talked about, until today, is of course all of that, but also how we can empower ourselves to also see what is right about us. My guest for this beautiful episode is Dayo Ajanaku who as she self describes, "offers basic enneagram education through black culture and black images. The Black Enneagram combines her love of the enneagram, black culture, entertainment and Christianity with the purpose of increasing self awareness, growth and relational health specifically in the black community." You don't want to miss this conversation, though you should be prepared that we have agreed to keep the dialogue light, as there is so much heaviness in the world right now. As always, you can call in at 888-346-9141 with questions at 2:40 p.m. CT. We hope you can join us!
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 6...love 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.
