Being Well Podcast: Using the Enneagram to Rewrite Your Story with Ian Cron
March 28, 2022

As we’ve talked about often on Being Well, one of the most effective ways to change how we show up in the world is to identify and change our underlying personal narrative. On this episode, Forrest and I talk with Ian Cron about how we can use the Enneagram personality typing system to aid us in this process.


Ian Cron is a therapist, master Enneagram teacher, best-selling author of The Road Back to You and his latest The Story of You, and host of popular Enneagram podcast Typology.
