Deep Living is not just about the Enneagram. It's also about living deeply by using the Enneagram as a vehicle for presence. You're practically getting 3 books in 1 and, it's one of those books that will undoubtedly end up with many dog-eared pages and which you will refer to again and again It goes beyond personality type

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.

Deep Living reveals how we unknowingly avoid vulnerable aspects of ourselves, relying instead on familiar personality patterns that distance us from our deepest nature. As a result, rather than experiencing ourselves as whole and integral to the fabric of life we feel separate, even from ourselves. Drawing on the sacred psychology of the Enneagram and the power of presence, this book guides us in recovering more of who we really are. With compassion, wisdom, and practical insight, the author helps us cultivate our innate capacities for wholeness, leading to an intimate, transformed relationship with ourselves. 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.

It is a rare book that can bring a reader home to Soul. Roxanne Howe-Murphy's sensitive excavation of the Ennegram awakens the reader to their true human potential.

Deep Living is food for the heart, balm for the soul, and light for the spirit.
