Patterson and enneagram

William Patrick Patterson

I had written, quite a while ago, a critical review of the enneagram material, in an Amazon review of Patterson’s book on the subject, Taking with the Left Hand. Patterson got it half right: the enneagram craze has produced hopeless nonsense. But he got the next part wrong, as he drew up a moat around the ‘official’ version in Ouspensky (and Gurdjieff).
I fear that is nonsense too.

Anyway I was surprised to see the review removed. He must have agitated with Amazon.
A pity: people need a jolt to snap out of the enneagram fixation.
