  • The communication styles of the nine types represent part of the unconscious pattern of how the type expresses itself. The Enneagram type is largely defined by the inner experience rather than what is presented outwardly. However, the parts of the ego that we do show are through acts of communication, either verbal or non-verbal. In this week’s episode, Bea and Uranio discuss the ways in which the nine types have different styles of communication that are largely influenced by their personality.

  • All Enneagram types have a particular thing that they focus their attention on (often unconsciously). Understanding each of these points of focus is one of the best ways for people to learn about the Nine types and the 27 subtypes. People tend to become very good at the thing they pay attention to, but they tend to miss the bigger picture. For inner growth, it’s essential to expand your vision and to be able to shift your focus to things that your personality tries hard to hide.

    Bea and Uranio offer tips on how to observe what you habitually pay attention to and how to expand your narrow focus to encompass a greater, more balanced perspective so that you can mature both psychologically and spiritually.

  • In this week’s episode, enjoy a sample of Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes's CPO exclusive quarterly Q&As. Members have the chance to ask any question that they have about the Enneagram, and Bea and Uranio answer them live on Zoom. The great thing is that everyone benefits from these questions and a lot of times people ask great questions that others might not have thought to ask.

    Some of the questions include:

    Which types avoid shame the most?

    What does merging actually mean as a nine?

    Do 4s introject positive as well as negative emotions?

    How can I differentiate between different subtypes of the same type?

    Can you define the differences between head, heart, and body crying?

    Is a particular subtype’s arrow movement different than the other two subtypes’ arrow movements of the same type?

    What does the growth path look like for Social 7s?

  • In this week’s episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes talk about the Enneagram Types and Subtypes of world leaders of today and of the past— from Zelenskyy to Obama, from Ghandi to the Royal Family. Coming from a place of humility, they share that this is an informal conversation where they discuss opinions that are based on experience and research and are not absolute facts. 

    Some leaders connect with emotions and are charming while others are angry and unable to apologize. Having conversations about what a famous leader's Enneagram type and Subtype could be is one of the ways we learn about what those types are all about. It’s not about being right, it's about marshaling evidence and having fun while developing an understanding of the nuances of different Subtypes. As leaders, any type with a low level of awareness in a position of power can act out in negative ways, which is why Bea and Uranio work so hard to raise consciousness.

  • In this week’s episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes, discuss the launch of their new adaptive Enneagram typing test, Chestnut Paes Sullivan Enneagram Compass. They discuss why Enneagram tests could be a good thing, how they can help people, and also what to keep in mind in terms of the downsides of taking an Enneagram test. After spending years on this assessment with their partner Fergus Sullivan, who has experience in using psychometrics, they understood that the big stumbling block is that test questions tend to focus on blind spots, typically the unconscious side of personalities. Therefore, they felt the test needs to ask specific questions leading not just to the Type, but to the Subtype, to provide more accurate results.

    Bea and Uranio created beautiful, customized 20-page reports, diving deep into strengths, challenges, and even growth paths for each Subtype. The report also contains a comparison to your second-highest-ranking type, for the minority of test-takers who feel that the first type doesn’t accurately describe their personality. It’s designed mainly for professionals to use in business, but it can be taken for personal use, as well.

  • In this week's episode, Uranio Paes interviews Beatrice Chestnut about one of her favorite topics—Dante’s Divine Comedy and its connections to the Enneagram. Bea studied English Literature in undergrad and has always been fascinated with analyzing literature and looking for themes within stories. She decided to read Dante’s Divine Comedy looking for not only the types and the passions but different elements about the Enneagram, especially as a path of spiritual transformation. In this 700 year old masterpiece that is still very relevant today, there are three sections, Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise, which map out different states of awareness and the process to achieve higher states of being.

    This summer, Beatrice Chestnut returns to Florence, Italy to conduct a workshop to help students discover the intersections of Dante’s work with the Enneagram system through lectures, music, art, dialogue, meditation, and bodywork. Students will explore Florence’s ancient streets through daily excursions, piazzas, restaurants, food, and wine.

  • In this week's episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes share a sample of one of their live monthly video webinars, an exclusive perk for CP Online members. This particular webinar is about the healthy use of the Heart Center. With a low level of awareness, every intelligence center tends to overuse their type’s center and often steal energy from the other centers. When using the Heart Center in a healthy way, Type Twos, Threes, and Fours don’t use emotions as much when activities call for the Gut or Head Centers of Intelligence.

    CP Online is our online membership portal designed for students who are committed to the Enneagram. They get over 100 hours of existing teaching content on all topics related to the Enneagram—from Enneagram theory to the Enneagram in spirituality, and applying the Enneagram in professional settings. Members also get a live monthly webinar with Bea and Uranio and a quarterly Q&A session. Join now at cpenneagram.com/online-enneagram-learning.

  • In this week's episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes discuss the much anticipated Instinctual Sequences in Personality Types. Instincts are the animal drives that have helped us survive as a species and in the context of the personality, it is broken down into self-preservation, social, and sexual instincts. People have an instinctual sequence (one being dominant, one being second, and one being repressed) and these instinctual sequences are biological energies with dialectical tension with each other. Bea and Uranio describe general behavioral tendencies for the 6 sequences and offer suggestions on how to discover your own instinctual sequence and how it can benefit your growth journey.

  • In this week's episode, Uranio Paes interviews Domingos Cunha, a good friend, a successful Enneagram teacher, and a Catholic priest. As an Enneagram Type Eight, Domingos shares how he had the belief that the world was against him, and if he showed any love and compassion, he would feel shame out of fear of appearing weak. He used to be proud when people would share concerns about him taking on too much work and responsibility because he felt it was a sign of strength, but now he feels good when he slows down, relaxes, and enjoys the company of others.

  • This week, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes discuss how low levels of awareness can be dangerous for any type. They discuss what type they think Vladimir Putin could be and what could have caused his choice to invade Ukraine. This is a reminder that the path of least resistance is to identify with the Ego, which is to say we see ourselves as individuals separate from others, and the Enneagram helps us to observe and disidentify with the Ego and connect to something more collective.

  • In this episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes talk with Dina El-Badry, a Type Six who is the head of the Enneagram track at the school The Field of Awakening in Cairo, Egypt. Dina, a Sexual Subtype, describes what it was like to be one with her ego and the realization that she was driven mostly by fear her entire life. She tells the emotional story of the pivotal moment in her growth path when she felt completely paralyzed by fear and then all of a sudden, was completely filled with true courage. She uses the quote “The only way out is through” to explain her experience and understands that true courage is not the absence of fear, but rather continuing to move forward despite the fear.

  • In this episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes talk with Todd Pierce, a Type Seven who was introduced to the Enneagram in 2004. He shares from experience what it's like to be stuck in personality; there is a false sense of freedom that comes from avoiding problems by using extreme optimism. The journey is about opening up to what is happening now, engaging with life moment to moment, and not using the process of planning to escape the pain of the present.

  • In this episode, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes talk about gratitude not being a simple emotion, but rather a higher emotion that can elevate us when we feel it in a sincere way. Gratitude naturally reveals itself when we open up our spiritual hearts.

  • Who is Gurdjieff, and why do we hear so much about his work in the Enneagram world? One of Beatrice and Uranio's biggest areas of commonality in their approach to teaching the Enneagram is their commitment to its origins and its seminal, foundational texts. In this episode, you will learn about G. I. Gurdjieff and The Fourth Way, the path he defined for human beings to work on the head, heart, and body levels in daily life. Find out how he views the connection between major religions around the world, how inner work is a path for spiritual growth, and what it all has to do with the Enneagram as we know it today.
