The Enneagram is all the rage right now, as books old and new on this subject of understanding oneself and others are flying off the shelves. But how many of those previous Enneagram authors have been people of color? InterVarsity Press's new Enneagram Daily Reflections nine-devotional series features seven authors of color, three of whom are interviewed in this season's finale episode: Sean Palmer (Forty Days on Being a Three), Marlena Graves (Forty Days on Being a Nine), and Gideon Tsang (Forty Days on Being a Seven). With all the interviews and podcasts that have been produced on the topic of the Enneagram, it's rare to find conversations about it featuring people of color, and you will discover an entirely different lens into understanding this ancient tool in this supersized episode. With special guest Suzanne Stabile, coauthor with Ian Morgan Cron of The Road Back to You and author of The Path Between Us.
