The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships

Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in othersand in ourselves.This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships. No one is better equipped than the coauthor of The Road Back to You to share the Enneagrams wisdom on how relationships workor dont.- Why do Sixes seem so intimidated and put off by Eights, who only wish the Sixes would stop mulling things over and take action?- Why do Fives seem so unavailable, even to their closest family and friends, while Twos seem to feel everybody elses feelings but their own and end up irritating people who dont want their help?- How in the world can Fours be so open and loving to you one day and restrained and distant other times?The Enneagram not only answers these questions but gives us a way out of our usual finger pointing and judging of other peopleand finding them wanting, perplexing, or impossible. Suzannes generous, sometimes humorous, and always insightful approach reveals why all the types behave as they do. This book offers help in fostering more loving, mature, and compassionate relationships with everyone in our lives....

Suzanne Stabile's new book, The Path Between Us, is a much needed followup to her joint book with Ian Cron, The Road Back to You. Stabile's, The Path Between Us, helps readers authentically apply the enneagram to the complex relationships in their lives-- whether personal or professional. Her writing continues to be easily accessible and yet this easy style never compromises the intellectual content or depth of her observations. Stabile confidently draws on her own life's work and practice with ...more

Summary: Using the tool of the Enneagram, this explores how each "number" interacts with the other numbers, how each number relates in stress, and security, and what is helpful for other "numbers" to understand about relating to a person with this number.

In The Road Back to You, (review) Suzanne Stabile and her co-author Ian Cron give one of the most accessible explanations of the Enneagram that I have read. In this sequel, Suzanne Stabile builds on the insights of how each of the nine "numbers"

If you’re only going to read one book about the Enneagram, read “The Road Back To You.” If you’re going to read two books on the Enneagram, then this is for sure the 2nd. Absolutely loved the insightful, thoughtful, and deep wisdom of Enneagram “Jedi Master” Suzanne Stabile. You’ll gobble this book up and be the better for it.

“The Enneagram is not about a pigeonhole, it’s more like ‘here’s a place where you hover’ and you can see how stress is affecting you and you can see possible indicators about what you could do to alleviate the stress. That is very helpful, especially in building relationships.”

This book is a great follow up read after you’ve learned a bit about the enneagram and your own number - it is all about each number in the context of relationships. Helpful to foster compassion for each other and the wa

This was just okay for me... having gotten more into the Enneagram in the last couple of years, I find myself a little less moved by Stabile (and Cron, her former writing partner). A good step past a basic introduction, but this felt a bit thin and pop-psychology to me. I just finished reading The Sacred Enneagram by Chris Heurertz and it had quite a bit more depth, challenge, and sense of history - and probably did as well or better a job of helping me think through relationships between the nu ...more

For those who like the enneagram, this is a good book. For those who like to look at how the enneagram effects your relationship with others, this is a great book. I think I’ll be looking at this sporadically when I have a problem or look to improve in a relationship with someone!

This book is probably not the starting point for learning about the Enneagram. The best book for that would be "The Road Back to You," by co-authors Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. "The Path Between Us" is the next step once you already have a basic understanding of yourself and the people in your life based on the nine Enneagram types. In it, you will learn how each of the types interacts (or fails to) with other number types and in relationship with individuals and groups in general.

The Path Between Us is a relationship guide based on the enneagram. For those who have never heard of enneagram, it is an equivalent of Myer-Briggs personality test, albeit with a spiritual background and more complexity.

WHO WOULD ENJOY IT
People with a love of Myer-Briggs types should be curious about enneagram and how this can work in relationships of all kinds.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT
The flexibility of interpretation that takes into account the complexity of humans is a pull for me. Moreso, the a

I was introduced to the Enneagram about a year ago when I friend sent me the typing test from The Road Back to You by Ian Cron and Suzanne Stabile. I immediately reserved the book at my local library and couldn’t wait to read it. As soon as I picked it up, I began reading and could barely put it down. I don’t know how I went so long without learning about the Enneagram, but it has since revolutionized my life. Learning the Enneagram has done two main things in my life:

YES! I loved this book. This is a great tool for anyone who already has a working knowledge of the enneagram and wants to go deeper in order to improve their relationships. The enneagram has been an essential tool for personal awareness and spiritual growth for me. My husband and I have already used the knowledge and insight we've gained from the enneagram to learn to better relate to and love each other. Knowing that I am a type 4 and he is a 9 has helped us learn to extend compassion and grace ...more

The Path Between Us is a great resource for understanding your family, coworkers, friends—really anyone who thinks differently than you! Each chapter focuses on one of the Enneagram types and ends with how the other types view them. It has been really helpful and fun as I’ve talked with my coworkers about the way they think.

I love the Enneagram, and I love how Stabile teaches the Enneagram, so predictably, I loved this book. It's a followup to her introductory book on the Enneagram that focuses on how different numbers approach relationship. To me, that's actually the most useful part of the Enneagram, even more than understanding yourself, so I appreciated it. Very little of it will make sense if you haven't read her previous book, or are already familiar with the Enneagram, but if you have, it's super useful.

The Path Between Us is a really important addition to this space of growing enneagram resources. The enneagram is a personality tool to help excavate through brokenness to reveal the good stuff. In the follow up book to Road Back to You, Suzanne covers how the the enneagram affects relationships. Suzanne does a great job approaching the topic very conversational.

I have recently begun learning about the Enneagram so I was interested to read this book that talks about the interactions between numbers and how you can support friends and family of various numbers. This is helpful if you know the numbers of others. I don't know the numbers of others so this isn't particularly helpful to me at the moment. If someone knew their own number plus those of others, I could see this being a useful tool.

My wife brought this back from a conference. The author uses the enneagram to discuss relationships between people.

The enneagram is way of deepening understanding of one's self through the lens of the true and false self dividing people into 9 types or spaces within which people live out their true and false selves.

Assuming a basic understanding of the enneagram Stabile has some helpful and practical insights into how understanding of the enneagram can better help us to engage others. Very hel

I’m SO thankful for Suzanne’s work on the Enneagram!!! While I found the first book, The Road Back to You, incredibly helpful for self-discovery and awareness, I found this one more relevant in helping me understand rather others than myself. Both books are mandatory reads for anyone interested in the Enneagram. A very helpful guide to understanding more deeply the closest people in my life and why we struggle or thrive in our relationships.

An informative read, especially in conjunction with The Road Back to You, which Suzanna coauthored with Ian Morgan Cron. Where that book gave a mile-high overview of each number, this book gives useful insight on what to do with that information. Several chapters were startlingly accurate descriptions of people I'm close to, and I only wish I'd had this book sooner, as it's already helped my relationships with them.

This was an easy read for anyone new to the Enneagram. Most of us pick up personality type books to help us understand just our own type--this book focuses on how each of the 9 types interact with one another--a crucial component to understanding how we work, play, and love one another. Highly recommend!
Melissa
3.5 stars - Overall a solid follow up to, The Road Back to You. Stabile specifically highlights how the Enneagram types interact with one another, along with how they compare and contrast. A great book for someone who is beginning to study the Enneagram, however, not profound or particularly deep with it's implications or analysis.

After you read "The Road Back to You" and take the enneagram test to figure out your type, definitely read this book. It is so helpful in understand how to relate to others (especially the ones that we just "don't get"). Complete "Eureka!" for relationships. Suzanne Stabile - Thank you for writing this book!

Love Suzanne Stabile in her work with Ian Cron in The Road Back to You and now this expansion on the ennegram and how we can better understand eachother. The study of the enneagram is helping me understand myself, those I love dearly and to be more compassionate and kind as we do life together. I highly recommend this after reading the Road back to You.

This book is a good supplement to Stabile and Cron's book on the Enneagram, The Road Back to You. The book is too concise, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unfamiliar with the Enneagram. With that said, there is a lot to take in, and I am looking forward to reading it again.
