Absolutely! A great starting point for beginners would be the book "The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery" by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. They explain the Enneagram system in an easy, enjoyable way, breaking down each type with great depth and clarity. In terms of online resources, the Enneagram Institute's website offers a comprehensive overview of each of the nine types and also provides the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI) test to help you identify your type. In addition, there are podcasts you can listen to, like "The Enneagram Journey" or "Typology". These provide insights into how different types think, feel, and react to different situations. Take your time with each resource, and remember, the most important part of learning the Enneagram is self-reflection and self-understanding. Hope this helps on your Enneagram journey!
