Beatrice Chestnut, PhD
Explore the shadow sides of the Enneagram types for greater self-awareness, inner peace, and compassion — for yourself and others during challenging times.
The secret teachings of the Enneagram — ancient wisdom from Babylon, Greece, and Egypt — view your personality as a dynamic “map” to your Highest Self and full potential as a human being.
Illuminating nine primary personality types and paths to wholeness, these powerful teachings support you in unearthing your true essence, deepening your intuition, and embodying your unique gifts.
In times of turmoil — clouded by the missteps of the collective shadow — we can turn to the Enneagram to help us unveil our own personal shadows...
… those parts of our personality we don’t see or may attempt to hide, which actually hold the keys to our personal and spiritual evolution. When we welcome the parts of ourselves we habitually deny, we become more whole, better able to navigate stressful times, maintain healthy relationships, and achieve the inner peace we so strongly desire.
When fear, anger, frustration, and overwhelm are pushing many of us to our limits and exposing our shadows, we can use the Enneagram to better see and understand these blind spots in ourselves and others.
Enneagram insights can shed light on what may be preventing you from living harmoniously with your loved ones (especially while sheltering in place), accessing self-understanding and compassion, and being who you truly want to be.
And, as you identify your Enneagram type and enter into a deeper exploration of the whole system, you glimpse the characteristics and shadow sides inherent in all the types… so you not only grow compassion for yourself, but for others as well.
The Enneagram can be a window into understanding the triggers and difficult behaviors of others, as well as how you may be projecting your own shadow onto someone else.
It can be a powerful tool for building healthier, more stable, and more loving relationships — especially during challenging times.
If you’re already working with the Enneagram, this self-empowering hour with Enneagram teacher, psychotherapist, and author Beatrice Chestnut will provide a fascinating look into the shadow sides of your Enneagram type, as well as the gifts that await when you learn how to illuminate and allow these parts of yourself to surface and accept yourself more fully.
You just might discover something new about your Enneagram type that you never knew before.
Beatrice is one of the most authoritative voices and thought leaders in the modern Enneagram movement. She’s been studying and working with the Enneagram for 30 years — since she learned about the system from pioneering Enneagram expert David Daniels, MD.
In this special online event, she’ll take you beyond simple personality typing — to discover the essential aspects for lasting transformation through the Enneagram.
During this complimentary 60 minutes with Beatrice, you’ll:
- Discover the Enneagram as a map to wholeness that can help you better navigate your life
- Glimpse the shadow sides of the 9 personality types of the Enneagram and learn how your own shadow may be emerging during these difficult times
- Discover how the Enneagram increases self-understanding, illuminates relationship dynamics, and helps build compassion for self and others
- Learn how healing practitioners and therapists can use the Enneagram to gain powerful insights into a client’s personality and challenges
- Experience a guided meditation to tap into the shadow, and light, of each Enneagram type and discover each personality’s governing focus and common blind spots
More than anything, Beatrice is committed to walking her talk, and has used the Enneagram as a lifelong tool for expanding her own inner work. She views its ancient teachings as an important modern-day framework for our personal and spiritual evolution — and for raising global consciousness to create a more positive, sustainable, and self-aware world.
When you join Beatrice for this eye-opening hour, you’ll also learn about her 7-module online course, where you’ll delve much deeper into the shadow sides of the Enneagram types, unveiling the mysteries of who you are and gaining a roadmap to living a more harmonious, fulfilling, soul-led life — even during difficult times.

What People Are Saying About Beatrice Chestnut...
“Work of this caliber invigorates the dialogue between science, mysticism, and psychology...”
I am especially pleased to see Chestnut’s credible research support for the renewal of this historic system in a postmodern setting. Work of this caliber invigorates the dialogue between science, mysticism, and psychology, streams of thought that have become estranged.
— Helen Palmer, renowned Enneagram teacher, author of The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others in Your Life and The Enneagram in Love and Work
“... interweaves theoretical and practical information...”
The Complete Enneagram title befits [Beatrice’s] work beautifully. This work is clear, thoughtful, comprehensive, and compelling. Examples of the types speaking for themselves, along with the historical roots of the Enneagram, further enrich Chestnut’s work. She artfully interweaves theoretical and practical information, and enhances this work with her insightful psychology background.
— David Daniels, MD, clinical professor, Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University, and Enneagram pioneer in the Narrative Tradition
“... abundant theory and practice for both the personal and professional arenas...”
With the best subtype information currently available in print and an exquisite intermixing of the psychological, spiritual, and developmental, The Complete Enneagram more than deserves its title. Pleasurable to read and with abundant theory and practice for both the personal and professional arenas, I will encourage all of my clients to read it, even those who are already Enneagram-savvy. It is solid, classic, bold, even-handed, and original!
