As we count down to the release of the final volume of the Enneagram Daily Reflections series (Forty Days on Being an Eight by Sandra Maria Van Opstal on October 26, 2021), we wanted to feature another set of three authors of color in the second of our two supersized Enneagram episodes. This show features Sandra, Juanita Rasmus (Forty Days on Being a One), and Morgan Harper Nichols (Forty Days on Being a Five) in an honest and vulnerable series of conversations that demonstrates the ways the Enneagram can be a helpful tool as well as the challenges that come from understanding its intersections with ethnicity and gender. Similar to our first Enneagram supersized episode, this conversation features the kind of discussions about this ancient tool that are unique and largely absent in the current discourses. You won't want to miss learning from these three fabulous authors of color in this special feature.
