I love Luke Norsworthy, but to say this is an Enneagram 7 Episode would be such an injustice. In this episode we talk about mystery and faith, spiritual practices and enneagram stances, repressed centers, how Threes Sixes and Nines can be repressed and dominant in the same center, parenting, and answering other questions from the audience.

Definitely an episode that you will want to listen to more than once!

So great to have LeaAnn on the podcast! LeeAnn has been in the Enneagram Apprentice program with Suzanne for the past 3 years and has done a lot of work! It is so great to hear someone from the feeling repressed stance talk about their need to bring up feelings. Suzanne and LeeAnn dive into orientation to time and what the downside of being oriented to the future is, and what it may mean to be able to have some balance in that area. What are some of the things that she has missed out on because of her "7ness"? And, what advice would she give to someone in relationship with a 7? All of that is discussed and so much more! We hope you enjoy their conversation, and if you think the podcast deserves a 5 star rating, then leave one and a review wouldn't hurt either!
