Enneagram Resources

What follows is only a partial list of recommended books and websites. In addition, the interested student might want to take a look at back issues of The Enneagram Monthly. Below I list only resources having to do primarily with the Enneagram of Personality, but the reader might also want to find and study other mystical and esoteric materials, such as those on the Egyptian and Greco-Roman Mystery Traditions, Pythagoreanism, Platonism, and Neo-Platonism, Kabbalah and Christian Mysticism, Theosophical texts by H.P. Blavatasky, Rudolf Steiner and Alice A. Bailey, and finally the teachings of G.I. Gurdieff.
