Episode 052: “Living Centered with the Enneagram”

Featuring Evan Barbee

On this week’s episode of the Living Centered Podcast, Lindsey and Mickenzie take a deep dive into the popular personality model the Enneagram with Certified Enneagram Teacher Evan Barbee. 

In the last couple of years, the Enneagram has garnered attention from media and memes—often reducing it to a quick assessment or labeling system. Yet this ancient tradition serves as an invitation to slow down and tune in, in order to truly understand ourselves and others. Throughout this informative and rich conversation, Evan invites us to the life-long journey of self-discovery and wisdom that the Enneagram has to offer. Whether the Enneagram is new to you or you’re well-versed, we hope this conversation will provide fresh insight as you continue on the rewarding journey of knowing yourself more fully.

Meet this episode’s expert

Evan is a certified teacher and practitioner in the Narrative Enneagram tradition, a deeply rich teaching tradition which identifies three crucial aspects of human development: psychological, spiritual, and somatic awareness. She has studied under the foremost teachers in the field, both Russ Hudson and Helen Palmer, and has taken this skill into low-income and resource-poor populations where individuals might not otherwise have access. 

Evan co-founded the Ennealab, an organization to help spread the Enneagram as far, deep, and wide as possible while maintaining the integrity of this brilliant teaching tradition. She also serves on the board of directors of The Narrative Enneagram (TNE) , the foremost Enneagram training body in the field.
