She is a Certified Narrative Enneagram teacher and an IEA (International Enneagram Association) Accredited Professional.

Sandra cocreated and cohosts the podcast, Heart of the Enneagram, that explores dimensions of the nine unique Enneagram perspectives through interviewing guests of all nine types. Since its release, the podcast has listeners in eighty countries. She lives in North Carolina, USA.

We are much more than our personality type. The Enneagram Map to Your Deeper Self is an invitation to see ourselves as more than we believe we are, to learn and engage practices that liberate us from automatic patterns.
 
The Enneagram Map to Your Deeper Self is an invitation to see yourself as more than your personality type and engage in practices that liberate you from automatic patterns. Certified Narrative Enneagram teacher Sandra Smith, MDiv, has taught the Enneagram internationally as a tool for personal, professional, and spiritual development for over twenty-two years. She shows readers how to deepen their use of the Enneagram in support of their spiritual lives as well as psychological health.
 
With clarity and consistency, this book shows how to understand your Enneagram type without reinforcing the patterns of your type. The gift of the Enneagram is its accuracy to show us the motivations beneath behaviors and egoic patterns that limit us and keep us from growing. The Enneagram Map to Your Deeper Self discusses the makeup of these patterns and gives us a greater capacity to unhook from them. Free from these habits, we are able to live more mindfully and grow into our full dimensionality, becoming more of ourselves.
 
Smith provides a detailed teaching of the components of the Enneagram type structures along with type-specific practices to counter automatic patterns. Also included are contributions from a diverse range of Enneagram practitioners. With their help, Smith dives into the components of the Enneagram types to tease out the patterns and pitfalls preventing us from living our radiance. Prayers, poems, and practices beckon us out of our confining comfort zones and into witnessing and honoring our lives.
