(Santa Fe, NM) - The multiple-award winning, #1-international bestselling book, Deep Living with the Enneagram, has been named a 2020 Winner in the National Indie Excellence Awards (NIEA) in the Personal Growth category. NIEA champions self-publishers who produce the highest quality books. Winners are determined on the basis of superior written matter coupled with excellent presentation in every facet of the final published product.

Written for growth-oriented adults, Deep Living with the Enneagram illuminates the stunning and paradoxical mechanisms through which the personality—that which we think of as "who we are"—unconsciously and insistently points us away from our deepest nature as a source of inner ease.

In her foreword to the book, Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times bestselling author extols, "This [is a] remarkable approach . . . nothing short of a revelation."

 Living in the midst of a pandemic has seared through our individual, collective and global psyches. Exacerbated by the interruption of routines and expectations, health risks, economic pain, and minimal in-person contact, solid ground seems to disappear. Beneath the face we put forward, the feeling of being unmoored and anxious rattles our inner life when we reach the edge of how we have ordinarily lived. Yet, inner uneasiness precedes COVID-19. The chaos makes it very clear that how life actually works has never been a certainty anywhere but in our concepts.

 Providing a unique perspective on the nature of the personality and its relationship to one's true nature, author Roxanne Howe-Murphy, EdD, introduces the "ego code." Core to the human condition, the ego code carries an invisible inner logic around which the personality is organized. Because it is a primary factor in shaping one's life experience, when this hidden logic is left unexamined and uninterrupted, personal struggles mount, and an integrated sense of self is diminished. The challenges that are part of living become even more exaggerated.

 Howe-Murphy calls the Enneagram "a map of love," explaining that "It speaks to the shared human experience with truth that is seldom spoken. It lets us know that we are not alone. It illuminates the places where we hurt and the exalted qualities where we shine." The author helps readers cultivate their innate capacities for living deeply as real human beings, enjoying an intimate and transformed relationship with oneself.

Deep Living with the Enneagram also was a 2020 finalist in the Mind-Body-Spirit category of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards (NGIBA), honoring authors of exceptional independently published books.
