The Enneagram has profoundly helped spiritual directors and pilgrims for decades. It enables powerful insights into human behavior observable in literature and human behavior for thousands of years (as far back as Homers "Odyssey"). Dr Driver-Bishop is certified in only processes recognized by American Psychological Association & American Counseling Association and taught by psychology professor emeritus from Loyola Jesuit University in Chicago.
The Enneagram is also very popular with younger adults and families. The Catholic church has seen significant growth in a new generation seeking to find greater person growth and spiritual direction. Many congregations utilize this resource as an outreach tool.
