The highly anticipated second part of our conversation with Alison McCrary (enneagram 3) is here!
The Reverend (Joseph Stabile) takes host duties in today's episode as he and Alison talk about their callings and their journey. Alison started Methodist and now is Catholic. Joe started Catholic and now is Methodist. Wow, the journey they've been on!
Would the Reverend make a good butcher?
Alison and the Black Panthers teaming up?
Could Suzanne and Joe keep up with Alison for a day?
Today's episode is light on enneagram, but so heavy on Journey, and we think that is a great thing, and hope you do too!

"A contemplative practice is any act, habitually entered into with your whole heart, as a way of awakening, deepening, and sustaining a contemplative experience of the inherent holiness of the present moment."
-James Finley
What an honor it is to have Alison McCrary join us on The Enneagram Journey!
Who knows the people you might get to talk to when you're just sitting on the couch watching an episode of Queer Eye?! Alison, an enneagram 3, is a New Orleans based political, cultural, and spiritual warrior. She learned her number when she was in formation to become a Catholic Sister.
Two great things about this episode. First, the Reverend joins the show! Second, we knew there was going to be so much to talk about that this is the first part of a two parter.

Welcome to Part 2 of what we envision to be a 9 part series throughout 2024 following 3 members of The LTM Enneagram Cohort features, enneagram 8, Alex Reegan!
Alex Reegan is the author of What Needs To Be Said, as well as an interfaith minister, speaker, and transformative spiritual coach who uses his intuitive wisdom to help guide people towards their own inner knowing. Born into an evangelical Christian family that prevented his true identity as a trans man from emerging, he spent years in depression, anxiety, and addiction trying to break free of the oppressive beliefs that bound him. His journey at last led him to sobriety, shamanism and then seminary, which helped him reclaim his faith and trust in the Divine. Through speaking engagements, workshops, one-on-one and group sessions with clients, Alex is profoundly dedicated to helping others speak their truth, release shame, and find oneness.
Registration is now open for the 2024 Enneagram Bootcamp:
The Enneagram: Stress, Loss, and Relationships with LTM and the Enneagram Godmother.
When: Thursday, August 1 - Saturday, August 3
Where: The Grove, Dallas, TX or join online from wherever you are

This is the first episode of an anticipated 10 Episode series over the next year, that we're really excited for! You have most likely heard about the LTM Cohort program on the podcast, and what better way to talk about it then to follow along with 3 Cohort members?
On today's show, meet Enneagram One Darnell Young.
She has always been interested in the behavior of others and the motivation behind people's behavior. In being introduced to the Enneagram, Darnell felt the tool put a name, or number, to how she viewed people. She loves to share information with others to bring them to awareness of themselves and others around them.
In the next couple of episodes listeners will also meet Matt and Alex from the 2024 Enneagram Cohort.
If you're interested in applying for the LTM Cohort program, there is still time to apply for the 2024 Leading Change Cohort, and the dates, expectations, and application for the 2025 program will open up in the Spring!
Want to dip your toes before diving into a Cohort? CLICK HERE to sign up for one of LTM's Enneagram small groups starting in March.
The Enneagram Journey podcast is produced by Life in the Trinity Ministry, a 501c3 non-profit ministry, and your donations help us to keep workshops and resources affordable as well as fund scholarships for the Cohort program, teaching events, and maintenance and upkeep of The Micah Center.

Meet some of the members of LTM's first online Enneagram Journey Curriculum group!
Suzanne and Joel talk with Chelsea (8), Jennifer (4), Maria (2), Marty (2), Hillary (2), Matt (6), and Ronna (8) in today's episode about how they found each other and what the Journey has been like so far.
Then the conversation evolved into a discussion about where we find our shadow side and false self in enneagram work, the greatness of the Barbie movie, spiral dynamics, and the importance of intergenerational learning.
If you don't have a group yet, find one! Create one! Join one! You've heard it over and over again, one of the mottos of LTM and The Micah Center is, "A place for solitary work that cannot be done alone."
LTM will be starting a few new small groups in 2024, and the information for the 2025 Cohort program will be available soon!

For now just go ahead and make those travel plans for Thursday, August 1 through Saturday, August 3rd!
