Illuminate the Shadow of Your Enneagram Type – With Beatrice Chestnut
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 these 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 better able to navigate stressful times, maintain healthy relationships, and achieve the inner peace we so strongly desire.
Enneagram teacher, psychotherapist, and author Beatrice Chestnut will provide a fascinating glimpse 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.

Enneagram and Self-Awareness
Beatrice Chestnut Shares How the Enneagram Helps You Know Yourself More Fully
There are many sides to our personality that we don’t or can’t see — and we often act from those unconscious places.
The Enneagram helps us understand ourselves better — even our shadow sides that we may not wish to acknowledge.
According to Beatrice Chestnut, looking openly and honestly at all parts of ourselves helps us become more compassionate. In the following short video, Beatrice explains how she’s come to see the Enneagram as a secret weapon for better understanding ourselves and others.
Beatrice Chestnut Shares Why Shadow Work Is So Important
It can be quite the challenge to come to terms with your shadow self — those less-than-ideal parts of yourself that you’re not fully conscious of. It’s understandable to want to keep those aspects of your personality out of sight and out of mind.
Of course, when you ignore your shadow self, it doesn’t go away — it’s still part of who you are. When you don’t understand or recognize these parts of yourself, you often unknowingly project them out into the world and onto other people.
For instance, have you ever met someone who possessed a trait or characteristic that just plain irritated you? Perhaps you couldn’t put your finger on why your aversion was so strong. Well, you may have been unknowingly projecting your unprocessed, less-than-ideal qualities onto that person!
In the short video below, Beatrice Chestnut explains why it’s so imperative to acknowledge your shadow side and learn to embrace your whole self.
Don’t miss these highlights:
- (0:28) — The dynamics that are often in play when you’re triggered by someone else, or you keep receiving the same feedback from others
- (0:54) — What happens when you don’t accept all of who you are
- (1:26) — How you can accept yourself completely and seek to diffuse and improve your reactions and habits
- (1:45) — How you can avoid (unknowingly) adding to the darkness in the world
The Enneagram is a map to wholeness that can help you better navigate your life. Each of the nine Enneagram personality types has a shadow side, and exploring them can lead to greater self-awareness, inner peace, and compassion for yourself and others — no matter what’s happening in the world.
Have you ever met someone who possessed a trait or characteristic that irritated or triggered you? Perhaps you couldn’t put your finger on why your aversion was so strong…
As Beatrice explains, you may have been unconsciously projecting your unprocessed, less-than-ideal qualities onto that person.
