Trauma, Loss & The Enneagram, Joy Tiffany: Type 9 Hearing The Peacemakers
“One of the biggest misconceptions of 9’s is that we can’t make a decision or that we don’t have an opinion because one of the things that 9’s struggling with is voicing their own opinion.”
Today is the culmination of an entire half season we dedicated to helping us understand how we respond to loss and trauma. We do not believe the enneagram to be sacred or pagan but rather a tool we can use to help us understand our fears, desires and how we can heal from trauma and loss.
Joy Tiffany represents our enneagram type 9. We asked Joy to represent the 9’s because she has experienced immense loss in a short amount of time. You will not want to miss this episode as Joy as she is incredibly articulate and is able to help other 9’s and those who love them.
Nines need to know that their presence matters in the world. They matter and they need to be reminded of that and we can do that by hearing them, respecting their perspective and understanding that we can’t take every conflict to them, they only have so much bandwidth!
Joy articulates how type 9’s have viewed the pandemic a million little conflicts. This is exhausting for type 9’s, as they want peace, but at what cost?
Sometimes the cost is at their own expense and it is up to their community to ensure that does not happen. Listen to this episode and learn about the Peacemakers and how we can love and support them better.
