As featured in the Fall 2018 edition of The Magnolia Journal and on the Rise Together podcast with Dave and Rachel Hollis, For the Love podcast with Jen Hatmaker, Typology podcast with Ian Morgan Cron, and Sleeping At Last podcast with Ryan O'Neal.

How to understand the 'why' behind your enneagram type.

Chris Heuertz’ life was forever changed after he learned about the enneagram 15 years ago, and since then he has trained under some of the great living Enneagram masters including Father Richard Rohr, Russ Hudson, Marion Gilbert, and Helen Palmer. Today he leads enneagram workshops all over the world. Join Chris as he shows you how this ancient tool can help you awaken to the gifts God has given you, find freedom from your personal patterns of sin and fear, and grow in acceptance of your identity as you grow with God.

The Sacred Enneagram is a trustworthy, richly insightful guide to finding yourself in the enneagram’s 9-type profiles, and applying this practical wisdom to transform your life. Far more than a personality test, author Chris Heuertz writes, the enneagram is a sacred map to the soul. The enneagram offers a bright path to cutting through the internal clutter and finding our way back to God and to our true identity as God created us.

In conversational style with compelling stories, The Sacred Enneagram will show you

  • How to understand the 'why' behind your type, beyond caricatures and stereotypes
  • How to align your type with prayer
  • How to identify and find freedom from self-destructive patterns
  • How to grow in reasoning ability
  • How to face your past and step toward healing
  • How to awaken your unique gifts to serve today’s broken world

Chris’s own journey with the enneagram is an accessible introduction and exploration of how the enneagram can change your life, because to the extent that we are transformed, the world will be transformed.

Editorial Reviews
The book you hold in your hands is more powerful than you know, more illuminating than you assume, more transformative than you imagine. If you are weak-kneed or faint of heart, drop it and run. If you’re happily complacent or content to live on autopilot, turn back now. Because this book will change the way you see everything. The Sacred Enneagram is not a just book about an ancient personality framework with a funny name. It is a roadmap to self-understanding written by one of the great spiritual practitioners of my generation. Read it now and you can thank me later.The gentleness of Chris’s tone mixed with the truth in these pages makes this book unavoidable for anyone who not only cares about their own mental and spiritual well-being but also wants to see others flourish.Integrated within these pages is Chris’s extensive knowledge and understanding of this ancient tool, along with depth in his teaching of contemplative spirituality as practiced by Jesus. Readers are offered a powerful way forward in their unique journey of spiritual transformation through aligning Christian contemplative prayer postures to specific Enneagram types.The Sacred Enneagram is a groundbreaking contribution to the Enneagram community, providing unique spiritual growth insights for all nine types. If you’re not yet convinced of the value, depth, and accuracy of the Enneagram, Chris demystifies and makes this ancient wisdom more accessible than ever.Understanding the Enneagram is not just an exercise in secular self-discovery but a journey toward living out rhythms of rest and reflection that will lead to deep spiritual growth. By grounding the Enneagram in the core truth of Scripture’s teachings about ourselves and God, this book helps us live into the full promise of who God created us to be, with impact on the communities and places God has called us to serve. I applaud Chris for doing the hard work of grounding an age-old practice into such practical and wise applications for those of us who seek to honor God in all of who we are and all of what we do.Through years of careful research and mindful study, Chris uses the Enneagram to illuminate the best and the worst of us and shine a light down the path to our truest selves. The Sacred Enneagram will find you when you need to be found.The Sacred Enneagram beautifully integrates the journey of self-discovery with guidelines that are simultaneously seasoned and filled with childlike wonder, personal and inviting. Instead of wandering around a hall of mirrors that most self-discovery texts build, The Sacred Enneagram walks with you through holy ground and fills you with love and life that ultimately pours out and must be shared.As the years pass, I often find myself asking, “Who am I?” The Sacred Enneagram is a book that I will forever use as a guide throughout my lifelong journey of self-discovery.Accessible to the spiritual journey of any seeker, Chris Heuertz beautifully translates this simple truth: that God is accessible when we know ourselves deeply. The Sacred Enneagram helps us to learn how to take that deep dive into our own essence to find the Divine.The Sacred Enneagram is a fascinating exploration into our inherent and undiscovered gifts of humanity. Learning about the Enneagram has awakened my understanding of Self in connection to God, my reactive tendencies in leadership, and hopeful opportunities for growth, discernment and spiritual formation. Learning about the Enneagram has expanded my heart’s capacity for compassion—toward those I fail to understand and especially toward myself.The book you hold in your hands is more powerful than you know, more illuminating than you assume, more transformative than you imagine.

Learning about the Enneagram has expanded my heart’s capacity for compassion---toward those I fail to understand and especially toward myself.After publishing and editing the Enneagram Monthly (EM) since the start in 1995 and interviewing practically 'everyone who is anyone' in this field, I did not expect to find a fresh take that zeroes in on a spiritual and practical view. The Sacred Enneagram is a breath of fresh air that opens the window and encourages those steeped in psychological detail to remember that they have not exhausted the possibilities, but can see it as having come to a new beginning. --Jack Labauskas, editor and amp; publisher, Enneagram Monthly
