The brilliant and fun Dale Rhodes M.S., M.A. talks with me about his literature and film groups, and his men's groups. I learned a lot in this conversation, about what it means to teach or speak about the Enneagram in a way that is both effective and healing. 

  • How Dale came to the Enneagram [2.25]
  • His thoughts on the MBTI [7.35]
  • How and why Dale started the film and literature groups [10.30]
  • Who is the standard student for Dale's groups? [17.40]
  • Why look at type through the lens of gender [19.35]
  • A Daoist perspective on type [24.00]
  • How Dale communicates the instincts material [26.40]
  • Why is it important to learn the Enneagram in community? [31.30]
  • A movie and a book per type! [37.50] Starting with Type 2.
