Part 2 of 3 in our Enneagram series featuring Pricilla Dean! This week we get into the nitty gritty of an underutilized concept of Centers of Intelligence. Each of the nine core types fall into a larger grouping of Heard, Heart, and Body/Gut as their way of knowing in the world. This is a long interview, but so worth the watch if you’re curious how to grow through your center but accessing underdeveloped parts of yourself. In case you need to listen to this in chunks, the time stamps are included below in digestible chunks. Enjoy!
