A first-of-its-kind guide to social justice through the lens of the Enneagram--a popular personality typing system--that shows how people can use their particular type to work on issues such as antiracism and homophobia.

Know Justice Know Peace is a unique guide told through the lens of the Enneagram that provides readers with a pathway to activating their authentic self so that they may participate in the healing all of humanity. Dr. Egerton will help the reader discover the indisputable fact of how deeply and intricately we are all connected.

The reader is invited to explore their own personality archetype and to activate themselves as allies within a beloved community; a community that acknowledges that, while we come in many shades and colors, we are part of one human race. This book will serve all Enneagram practitioners regardless of race, religion, gender, or any "othering" category.

Readers will explore:

  • the cultural challenges of the social construct of race and the intersection of inner work through the nine different lenses of the Enneagram.
  • their own meaning of "other" and allow it to surface in their consciousness, perhaps for the first time
  • the full concept of "other" and their early experience with differences
  • their individual journey and the possibility of healing their own wounds and finding positive outcomes to help heal the world

Know Justice Know Peace brilliantly illuminates how the inner work of each of the 9 Enneagram archetypes creates healing, elevates the consciousness, and aligns us as individuals with the heart of humanity in order to eliminate systemic racism. It provides the reader with a guide to activating their authentic self so that they may participate in the healing all of humanity.

Praise For…

Deborah lays out the background and possibilities in the healing of “othering” while also providing an excellent introduction to the Enneagram. Doing this all in one book is no small feat! More importantly, she lays out how the methods of inner work are crucial for doing social justice work and racial healing, and how our awakening demands our participation in the healing of the world. - Russ Hudson, co-author of The Wisdom of the Enneagram

Know Justice Know Peace is a brilliant new field guide, based on an ancient spiritual blueprint, that will inspire a new generation of activists to work with love—that is the greatest force in the universe and heartbeat of the moral cosmos—to bring about social justice, end racism, and create a better world for us all. - Robert and Hollie Holden, creators of Everyday Miracles

Dr. E is diligent, nuanced, and brave in the way she does Enneagram and anti-racism work. The work she does comes from a deep spiritual and loving place within her. I've learned so much from her around healing my own heart that I now have the capacity to really be effective in the DEI work that I do. - Milton C. Stewart, MBA, founder of Kaizen Careers, Coaching and Consulting, and host of Do It For The Gram: An Enneagram Podcast

While many have cautioned Dr. Deborah Egerton not to highlight the issues of IDEA with the Enneagram, she's elected to bravely expose all the reasons why it has to happen now. The exploratory dimensions of Enneagram combined with viewing the constructs of race and “other”-isms lead us to unimaginable levels of healing. Her book serves as a light to guide us through the journey using these two lenses. Dr. Egerton serves as the Enneagram harbinger for our times; for this, we are grateful. - Erlina Edwards, board president of The Narrative Enneagram

In KNOW JUSTICE, KNOW PEACE, Dr. Egerton leads us to understand why we must examine how we came to ingest life experiences that led us to negatively see members of the human family; we say, "you're different than me." Journeying through the Enneagram, we see how "othering" has created near permanent mindsets. We're directed to realize that if we stay with these confined beliefs, the outcome for our families and world is perilous.
This work expressively uses the value of Enneagram levels of development to help us recognize how the darkness hides within our type structures. Othering destroys all that is precious. It brings illness and division and feeds hatred.
Through many personal stories, this book validates why The Enneagram is the elixir tool for this specific topic, "othering." She re-titles those souls deeply marginalized by othering as "Love Warriors," describing how we keep our fractured society in place. Yet, she offers so much wisdom on how, by utilizing the Enneagram, we can end supporting these conditions within ourselves and our world. There is a gentle healing approach to the work within these thoughtfully written pages. Dr. Egerton seeks to cultivate communities asking us all to undo societal injustices. All while reminding us throughout the book that only LOVE can transform us. Simply a must-read. - Erlina Edwards, board president, The Narrative Enneagram
