My Enneagram Journal is a guided journaling experience based on the Enneagram.

It’s best for people who know their Enneagram number but are ready to get to know themselves!

The Enneagram Journal has explanations of important Enneagram concepts placed throughout the journal. These are to serve as a launching pad for your inspiration and insight as you write. They are followed by the most important part of the journal–over 100 journaling prompts that are designed to help you go deeper and find personalized wisdom and insight for your own life.

Another artistic journal the Photo Journal is perfect for inspiring a different viewpoint. With prompts like “Take a political photograph of nature,” you’re sure to re-inspire your creativity, and give fresh perspective behind the lens.
