Many of you may have the question…
How Was The Enneagram Developed?
I’m glad you asked!
It was originally derived from the teachings of Oscar Ichazo who created the Arica School in the 1960s to share the teachings he learned during his travels in Asia. He focused heavily on self-realization and combined the study of the stars, metaphysics, psychology, spirituality and more.
Ichanzo’s school and teachings were vast. The main feature his students talked about was the ancient Enneagram, a symbol that can be traced back alongside Pythagoras’ teachings.
The modern world can thank Goerge Gurdjieff, the founder of an inner-work school, for its introduction. He used this symbol as a way to understand the ego structure of a person and a way for us to define ourselves.
