  • “An uncanny grasp of the brilliance of this spiritual tool.”

    “There is hardly anybody on the scene who understands the spiritual depths of the Enneagram, as does Suzanne Zuercher! Her constant insights are grounded, not just in good psychology and good theology, but also with an uncanny grasp of the brilliance of this spiritual tool. She represents the depths that the Enneagram came from and the depths where it can lead you.”

    Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.

  • “What a treasure.”

    “What a treasure this book is for all who minister in the field of spirituality, spiritual direction, and retreats. Clearly Suzanne is steeped in both the Enneagram and in a profound, seasoned knowledge and understanding of our human/God journey. Thus, in clear understandable language, she gives a tool for moving into our own inner truth and companioning others who invite us to walk with them on their journey.”
