#1 International Best Seller Deep Living with the Enneagram is three-books-in-one with a focus on what it means to live deeply. Part One addresses the important, but often unaddressed question of how we prepare for experiencing a different way of knowing and being with oneself. Part Two, the 'Nine Variations on How We "Do" Life' illuminates the personality's 'ego code' structure which unconsciously leads to recurring difficulties and illusions, and often obstructs our gifts and more awakened nature. We explore the Enneagram's nine unique versions of the recovery to our indivisible wholeness. Part Three provides powerful perspectives on the personal change process itself -- what supports it and what sabotages it. Part Three also provides important guidance on disengaging from the inner critic, and practices for creating and sustaining our growth momentum.

It's one of those books that will undoubtedly end up with many dog-eared pages to which you will refer again and again

In Deep Living, you'll find:

  • A radically compassionate and spacious approach to recognizing the roots of inner struggle;
  • How your Enneagram type's personality patterns present specific obstacles to real presence;
  • Your unique pathways for liberating yourself from inner confines -- one size does not fit all;
  • Ways to cultivate a strong core foundation and your innate capacity for wholeness;
  • The connection of your personal well-being to global well-being; and,
  • Full acceptance of both your human nature and the eternal, divine spark within.

This is clearly a must-have book for healing the roots of struggle.

What others have to say:

One of the greatest discoveries of the past two centuries is that the human personality is not fixed, but is flexible, changeable, and malleable. Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy is a wise, empathic coach who knows how these changes can be encouraged and facilitated. If you feel stuck in your journey and are ready for growth, change, and greater fulfillment and happiness, let this master coach be your guide.
