In episode #112 of the Simply Wholehearted Podcast, Amy Wicks and Chris Heuertz discuss the challenges and benefits of finding your unique path to spiritual transformation. 

Enneagram Type Nine

New song debut: “Nine” – the 25th and final song in my Atlas: II series, and the 9th and final song in the Enneagram chapter – a song for each of the nine uniquely beautiful Enneagram types of personality.

How Not to Use the Enneagram

Tools were meant to be used in certain ways. You can use a saw to try to hammer in a nail, but it probably won’t work correctly. Like all tools, the Enneagram has its limits, and you can use it in ways it was never meant to be used. In this chapter, Chris talks about the most important things to remember when using the Enneagram when it comes to your own spiritual growth and formation.

Processing Childhood Wounds

Chris Heuertz’s approach to the Enneagram looks at childhood wounds as a way of understanding the way your type experiences the world. These childhood wounds are often tell-tale signs that you have been disconnected from your essence, the person God created you to be. The good news is that these wounds are not fatal. Once you know your childhood wound, you can begin the journey of finding wholeness and healing in the person God created you to be.

An Introduction to the Enneagram Types

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a way of understanding who we are as people that’s really starting to gain traction. The Enneagram consists of nine different types that describe the way we interact with the world around us. And, most importantly for Daily Growth Discipleship, it gives us another tool to use as we pursue daily transformation into the image of Jesus Christ. Chris’ book, The Sacred Enneagram, he describes much more than just a personality profile. Understanding your type can open ways to understand who you are and what God is doing in your life. In today’s chapter, Chris gives us a brief introduction to each of the nine types. But before you get wrapped up in trying to identify your type, take Chris’ advice from the last episode to heart and spend some time exploring this with another person

Discovering the Enneagram Through Missions

The Enneagram has really become popular over the last few years. And a lot of Christians want to know, “Can I use this for spiritual growth, or is it something to be avoided?” Today we’re talking with Chris Heuertz, author of The Sacred Enneagram. His story of finding the Enneagram and discovering his type says a lot about what this tool is and how it can be used for discovering who you are in Christ.

Conversation with Chris Heuertz Part 2

In this episode of the Things Above podcast, James Bryan Smith continues a conversation with Chris Huertz about the Enneagram by exploring the holy ideas and virtues of each type. These components offer a map to our soul. Holy ideas are the first truths we have to tell ourselves. Virtues are our unobstructed views of reality. In regards to the Enneagram, our basic fear tells us things will never be okay. We contend with fear in two ways: Our type’s passion and fixation. Our type’s passion is how our heart suffers and our type’s fixation is how our mind tells our heart, “This makes sense, keep doing that.” Understanding these aspects of the Enneagram provides helpful insights about yourself, as well as others. You can explore more on the Enneagram and its impact on our spiritual formation by reading Chris’s book, “The Sacred Enneagram.”

Chris and his wife, Phileena, served with the Word Made Flesh community for nearly 20 years, working for women and children victimized by human traffickers in the commercial sex industry. His vocation has taken him to over 70 countries working among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor.

Chris Heuertz: Solitude, Silence, Stillness & The Sacred Enneagram Part 1

In his book, “The Sacred Enneagram”, Chris Heuertz states, “Real transformation takes place when we pair the self-awareness that the Enneagram stimulates with the silence of contemplative practice. Then our unique path to spiritual growth emerges, and we will never be the same.”

I’m Pissed, Someone Get me a Puppy!!!!

If you know who Chris Heuertz is, you are the right amount of obsessed with the enneagram. You will also be shocked to hear that he voluntarily guested on No Chill Enneagram. We can’t explain it either. The enneagram works in mysterious ways.When you have someone as wise as Heuertz, you ask the important questions like “The enneagram is so hot right now, how annoying is that??” and “How can we become enneagram experts, in like the next 5 minutes, and could you get us a certificate or something?”PLUS: Chris explains why the number we ranked lowest in our first episode (so sorry) gets a bad rap.AND: We give Chris the opportunity to take over the show. Does he embrace unchecked power? Let’s find out together…YOU WON’T BELIEVE: Chris types reviews with us, and masterfully so. Oh, and he says enneagram slang can happen, so that settles that.

Nothing is Wasted Podcast – Chris Heuertz

It’s the time of year when most of us are trying to change our lives for the better. But if we want to better ourselves, we first have to know ourselves. Chris Heuertz literally wrote the book on that. The enneagram is a tool used by millions to understand the unique ways God created each of us, and The Sacred Enneagram lays out what this concept means for each of us in our relationship with God and the people around us. Chris sits down with Davey to give an overview of what the enneagram is, how it can be used in healing, and much more

You Know Your Enneagram Type, Now What (feat. Chris Heuertz)

Ok, ok, so you’ve given in to your friend who won’t stop talking about it and tried your best to figure out what Enneagram type you are. Where do you go from there? Chris Heuertz (author of The Sacred Enneagram) comes by to explain how that information can help in your life, what contemplative practices might be good for you, and how it intersects with our mental health. He also talks about working with Ryan from Sleeping At Last on the series of songs he’s releasing about the Enneagram types. In the intro, Holly and Robert talk about favorite Christmas movies (including some weird ones!)

Interview with Chris Heuertz on The Sacred Enneagram

I talked to Chris Heuertz about the ideas in his book, The Sacred Enneagram. We go into detail, using my type (4) and his (8) as examples.

“Far more than a personality test, the Enneagram’s 9 profile types offer what author Chris Heuertz calls a sacred map to the soul. Lies about who we think we are keep us trapped in loops of self-defeat. But the Enneagram reveals both the nine ways we got lost, and the nine ways we find our way home to our True Self and to God.”
