Michael Naylor begins Act 2 by revealing his personal introduction to the Enneagram following what he describes as his “Oprah-worthy” divorce.
Quoting from one of his teachers with his signature, self-effacing humor – “You’re a fool and I’m a fool, so let’s just relax” – he shares his path to men’s work and busts the persistent myth that it’s even possible to go it alone in one’s healing journey.
Michael’s transparency and raw honesty are refreshing, and his stories are packed with rich, colorful, and accessible wisdom.
