The REALIFE Process®

Jun 12, 2019

Who am I really? At one point or another, most all of us wrestle with this question! 

As a Type 9, Enneagram author of "Self to Lose – Self to Find: A Biblical Approach to the 9 Enneagram Types", Marilyn Vancil says identifying her type was a relief initially! "At first, I was just glad to be 'somebody.'"

As Marilyn has continued the deep work of discovering her not only her best authentic Type 9 qualities, she also has become aware of her adaptive behaviors as well.

On this episode, Marilyn shares through the lens of a transforming Type 9 about:

  • Taking her hobbies and interests and turning them into a calling
  • Learning that her voice matters
  • Navigating seasons of transition
  • Moving toward action

Join the conversation as we dive in and discover the power of the paradox–how truly losing yourself can be the very thing that leads you to find yourself. 

About our Guest: Marilyn Vancil is a trained spiritual director, life coach, and Certified Enneagram Professional in the Narrative Tradition through Enneagram Worldwide.
