Hello everyone!

I'm an Enneagram enthusiast and life coach. I am also an ordained Buddhist Dharma Leader in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of Anam Thubten (Dharmata Sangha). I'm very interested in unfolding a Buddhist-inspired Enneagram.

Looking forward to participating in the community!

Yo you are a Tibetan Buddhist? My dad is one too and my late uncle actually used at a monastery under the Dalai Lama himself until he died a decade ago. And welcome to PerC! Your knowledge about enneagram will certainly be helpful here in our community about all the various personality theories.

Really like the idea of a Buddhist-inspired Enneagram - LOVE LOVE LOVE the layout for 6 you have with 1-9 and asleep/waking. The 6->3 stress fixations/latent resources and 6->9 alienation/integration are fantastic - first time I really feel like I'm seeing a balanced depiction of disintegration and integration that I can really apply and put into action. Looking forward to your participation on the site and to learning more about your ideas.

Hi there nice to meet you.
I never took the time to gain knowledge about this enneagram thing.
Maybe you can learn me about it in the future.

I also have a question to you,

Do budhists have some against Gurus?
Why do i ask this? Well i have done 2 JobTests in the present, both giving me the weirdest outcome i could have expected... Guru...
I heard Budhists are against it? And what does Guru mean in a Budhists perspective?

Thanks!

So glad you got something out of it. I really appreciate your feedback!! I think it's key to see the upside and downside patterns of both connecting lines.

Different Buddhist traditions have different orientations towards gurus (or lamas as they are called in Tibetan Buddhism). Early Buddhism, Theravada, does not have a strong emphasis on guru.
