Overview

The popular author of The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram elucidates the most intractable pitfalls of our psyches and shows how our understanding of them can lead us to our highest virtues.

The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues illuminates human experience beyond the functions of personality. Using the spiritual psychology of the enneagram, Sandra Maitri highlights two core aspects of human consciousness: the passions and the virtues. The passions are the ego-driven emotional states that come to dominate our lives, such as anger, pride, and fear. Discovering and understanding the passions in an experiential way can lead us to what lies beyond the personality itself. As we do, the virtues-which include serenity, humility, and courage-naturally arise to support our unfoldment. This giving way from the passions to the virtues is one of the hallmarks of inner development.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Maitri, so the publisher's notes tell us, belonged to the first group of disciples of Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo, who applied the neo-Platonic spiritual cosmologies of Plotinus (the Ennead) to the human personality. At its Plotinean level, Enneadic spirituality is highly esoteric. Maitri's application of her teacher's principles endeavors to make this complex system accessible to a wider audience. Even so, she concedes, "this is not a journey for everyone"; yet, for those interested in a new spiritual practice with roots deep in the ancient past, this is a worthy introduction. For most collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Sandra Maitri was a member of the first group of students to whom the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo presented the enneagram system in the U.S. almost three decades ago. Throughout her many years of studying and teaching it, Maitri has preserved the legacy of this original transmission. In addition to her work with Naranjo, she has studied with various Eastern and Western spiritual and psychological teachers, including A.H. Almaas, founder of the contemporary spiritual path, the Diamond Approach. As one of the principal and supervising teachers of the Diamond Approach, she teaches the enneagram as part of the larger work of personal transformation, working with hundreds of students each year in the U.S. and Europe. She lives in Marin County, California.

    This book is an essential reading for everyone as a distinct way

    This book is an essential reading for everyone as a distinct way to understand not only the enneagram, but oneself. I have studied this as a sort of bible to have better relations with the world around me and I have found it an invaluable resource. The enneagram itself is not simple and can be hard to connect to it in the grand overall picture. This is what Maitri does so well; weaves a connection through the personality to the very soul. What could be more important than that?
