Your Enneagram Coach, the Podcast

Aug 18, 2020

Today, we begin a four-part series on the Enneagram as it relates to Internal Family Systems (IFS). 


In this episode, Beth and Jeff interview Alison Cook (Type 3), author of the new book Boundaries for Your Soul: How to Turn Your Overwhelming Thoughts and Feelings into Your Greatest Allies. 


You’ll learn about the parts of your heart called Managers, Firefighters, and Exiles, and discover that you are SO much more than just your main Type! 


By integrating the Enneagram with IFS, we'll journey from self-observation to self-leadership––living out the Gospel from the inside out!
