“Everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round . . . The sky is round and I have heard the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind in its greatest power whirls, birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. Our teepees were round like the nests of birds. And they were always set in a circle, the nation’s hoop.”

My decision to found Evolving Enneagram using the formal legal structure of an LLC—rather than as a non-profit organization—did not come easily because, for me, this work is a “ministry” more than anything else. Ultimately, my discernment was informed by much prayer and consultation with trusted advisors, including many fellow Enneagram students and teachers from diverse backgrounds. This LLC legal structure that I have chosen (at least here at the outset, in order to launch my heart’s calling) is the one I believe will best allow this work to flourish in the world. For me, however—and, I believe for all Evolving Enneagram’s supporters—the real and more essential form of Evolving Enneagram is actually that of a circle.
Officially birthed on September 10, 2019, Evolving Enneagram exists only because a beloved circle of friends and fellow Enneagram enthusiasts believe in the transformative power of the spiritual practices and teachings that I feel guided and inspired to share with the world—and, somehow, also believe in me and in my ability to impact the world on a global scale! I created this Founders Circle to recognize and give heartfelt thanks to the amazing people who made personal gifts directly to me (wow!) or who contributed to this business in the amount of $500 or more.
The beginning of a venture is always a very vulnerable and fragile-feeling time. Yet I find I am encircled by loving and faith-filled support, and I pray that this love will encircle the world.
With Deep Gratitude—and Excitement!!!
