Is the Enneagram Demonic?

Many of you know that I do work with the Enneagram in my spiritual direction coaching practice. Matter of fact, I have a workshop entitled the Enneagram and Spiritual Formation that I’m leading on Saturday, February 4 (more at this link). With that, I engage with all sorts of claims about the evil, demonic, and occult background of the Enneagram. I have emails from varying Christian counselors and coaches declaring its evil origins.

In a more recent social media post, popular Christian author, poet and artist, Jackie Hill Perry, renounced the Enneagram as demonic. You can see her own video below.

I am particularly interested in using the Enneagram as a tool for spiritual formation and growth. This would be connecting it to the work of St. Evagrius Ponticus, Ramon Llull, and Ignatius of Loyola. They did not use the Enneagram as we do today. But there are aspects of their own work that relates very well to the Enneagram typing system.

As I teach on the Enneagram and how it can be a tool for our formation in Christ, I take time to address what each Enneatype needs to hear from the Father. Of course, what I offer is one small insight. There are other words we need to hear from the Father. But I believe these messages are essential.

So, without further ado…

What Sevens need to hear from the Father.
