HOMEOPATHY AND ENNEAGRAM
Sometimes vices are more important than virtues. In fact they provoke instinctive and unrestrained reactions as it is very hard to dominate them with our willpower. The Enneagram dates back to the ancient sufi doctrine and Greek philosophers; it describes nine character types which correspond to the nine “capital” vices and it is largely used by psychologists, psychiatrists, homeopaths and therapists in Italy, France and the U.S.A.
In his book “Character and nevrosis”, the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo refers to homeopathic remedies which reflect the mental characteristics of human vices. And it is homeopathy the greater help to “treat” our personality, without changing it, but making it stronger, softening its harsher sides. Homeopathy combined with Enneagram helps us to get through difficult times, treating compulsory, mechanical, negative and often useless behaviour associated with our neurosis.
