The Enneagram

Self knowledge - the path to a more loving world

Why does it feel like this? Why am I acting the way I do? Why do I think these thoughts?

Knowledge about the Enneagram gives you the answers to these questions and so many more.

The Enneagram is a model that describes nine basic personality types and maps how each personality type thinks, feels, and acts based on the human's three centers of intelligence; the mental, the emotional and the instinctive center.


The Enneagram is somewhat unique in that it describes the development paths for each personality type. Here you will learn to recognize your warning bells and stress signals and thus avoid many pitfalls. You get a tool that helps you develop your self-awareness and find your strengths and live a happier and more meaningful life. With the Enneagram, you not only get an answer to the question WHAT? but also WHY? You learn about why you think, feel and act the way you do, and this helps us be a little kinder to ourselves. This also helps us to better understand ourselves in relation to others, which further builds compassion for others and in this way we can create more meaningful and genuine relationships.

If you are ready to be open and completely honest to yourself, if you are looking for a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and you dare to look at your inner driving forces and fears, then you are welcome to follow us here.

The course opened up a lot for me about how other people can think and act based on their fears and driving forces. It has also helped me to understand myself better and I am very much looking forward to going deeper and gaining more knowledge about this.

I have read a little about the Enneagram before, but not really grasped it completely. Annika has a great knowledge of the subject, and her course gave me more insight, both about myself and others. Very interesting sessions, and I'm really looking forward to continuing!


A curiosity has aroused the desire to continue my journey towards a deeper self-awareness and also increased the understanding that we all are so complex. A fantastic course that made you want to know more.
