"The immediate goal is to recognize the inner patterns that drive your outer behavior. These patterns vary according to the type of person you are, and can be internally witnessed by a faculty of spiritual awareness commonly called the Inner Observer."

-Helen Palmer

Rev Gordon is a dynamic speaker and a scholar of the Enneagram. He introduced me to the "inner observer" which has been an essential tool on my spiritual journey. His compassion and knowledge make him a very valuable asset to the Enneagram community. His experience in helping people identify the E type they identify with is exceptional.
