The Enneagram is a personality typing system with ancient symbolic origins that has a sneaky way of revealing who we are and why we do the things we do. Using nine types, it gets to the root of our fears and motivations, unveiling our inner-most selves.
Hannah Paasch, creator of the popular #Millenneagram threads on Twitter, reinvigorates the Enneagram by putting a modern spin on the classic nine types. For Hannah, the Enneagram is not about changing who we are, but rather nurturing and loving our whole selves, even our "pain in the ass" qualities. She believes that it is only from a position of wholeness, rootedness in who we are and what we believe, that we will we be able to act bravely for the sake of justice and humanity.
With her trademark irreverent humor and empowering affirmations, her latest book Millenneagram reframes the classic Enneagram types with a fresh perspective and new names that cut right to the chase. A powerful tool for self-discovery (that doesn't take itself too seriously), Millenneagram, is an invitation for introspection and growth. Hannah's revamped Enneagram goes beyond simply identifying with a type: it gives us permission to be our truest, enough-as-is, bad-ass selves.
