A journey of consciousness: living the dream
Ali Green introduces the wisdom of the Enneagram
IMAGINE YOU’RE HIKING WITH FRIENDS and need to ford a swollen river. Would you be the first to plunge in and splash to the far bank; would you pause to calculate the safest crossing point; or perhaps worry about helping others across?
