Enneagram & Grief | Enneagram coach on grief and baby loss | miscarriage, infant loss, stillbirth |

Episode 64

You’re listening to The Joyful Mourning Podcast Episode #64. This week we start a special series all about the enneagram. Maybe you have never heard of the enneagram or maybe you have read all the books, either way this series is going to be incredibly helpful in growing our understanding of how we all grieve differently; giving us compassion for ourselves and others as we grow to understand ourselves and those around us in a deeper way.

Throughout this series I will be talking with Monique Scrip, a certified enneagram coach. She will be walking us through each of the 9 enneagram types, what they might look like in grief, what they might struggle with that is specific to their type and how to best love someone who is that type and is walking through the loss of a baby.

In this week’s episode we start with an introduction about the enneagram. Monique helps us to understand what the enneagram is, what it isn’t and how it’s different than other commonly known personality typing tools. She gives a very helpful overview of this helpful tool and even does a bit of impromptu coaching for me.

This series of episodes is for you if you are a grieving mama who has felt misunderstood in your grief or felt as though you no longer really understand those closest to you or even understand yourself. I pray this tool will provide an avenue for your relationships to grow in depth and value as you gain a better understanding of how each other is processing and navigating this season of grief and loss.

So, listen in if you have ever been curious about the enneagram or if you are a skeptic about all this; or if you are just interested in knowing what enneagram type I am and her thoughts about my specific blind spots. But mostly listen in if you are a grieving mama who is hoping to better understand your grief, how you are processing loss and how to better understand the way those closest to you are processing their grief as well.
