ENNEAGRAM AND KABBALAH
Rabbi Howard A. Addison has written a book by that title, described at the website as: "A newly updated and expanded examination into the groundbreaking exploration and connection of two of the most powerful mystical traditions".
Gurdjieff meets Judaism and finds compatibility.
Not to be outdone in syncretism, Catholic priest Richard Rohr has praises for the book: “Finally, someone has made the helpful connection between the Enneagram and Kabbalah; Howard Addison does it very well. His book should help restore the spiritual goal and foundations of the Enneagram." —Richard Rohr, OFM, Enneagram teacher and author of Discovering the Enneagram
Looks like Rohr followers are planning to walk right out of the faith using a technique that once would have been anathema for a Catholic. But hey, why not go shopping in the religious supermarket where every spirituality is up for grabs and no spirituality is beyond the pale. It's mystical, doncha know. As above, so below, right?
Can it require anything more than an eyeblink for Rav. Michael Leitman and Ervin Laszlo's book to make its way to the Catholic booklist? Ohmmmmmmm.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
