"As the popularity of the Enneagram continues to grow, and this tool for growth makes its way into the common discourse, there is an increased need for literature and resources which help us explore the Enneagram with curiosity, rigour, and compassion. Lubbe's book invites us into a generous and well grounded look at what it means to be human both through insight into the Enneagram and the human brain. Together his rich knowledge of them both creates an opportunity for all of us to see ourselves, and experience ourselves, as whole."
Hillary L McBride, Ph. D, author Mothers, Daughters, and Body Image
"In a world that is constantly underscoring our deficits it is at once refreshing and hopeful to find an approach to healing reminding us that, actually, we are already whole. Appealing to those who understand that how we do anything is how we do everything, now an application of the Enneagram suggests that there is also an integrated and tangible way in which everything also heals, starting with our brain. This work is for people - people striving to support the masses of those to whom things have happened that should never have happened. Dr. Lubbe’s approach is anything but topical, the results, swift and lasting."
Susan Olesek, Founder Enneagram Prison Project & The Human Potentialists
"The Brain-Based Enneagram by Dr. Jerome D. Lubbe makes it into that rare category of essential Enneagram reading. If you're brand-new to this whole world and want to see what all the fuss is about, The Brain-Based Enneagram is an entirely fitting first Enneagram book, because you're going to gain a concise, clear explanation of this symbol as a powerful tool of transformation, rather than just another way to pigeon-hole ourselves. No matter where you're at in your Enneagram journey, The Brain-Based Enneagram is an elegant, energizing guide. Highly recommended."
Mike Morrell, collaborating author with Richard Rohr, The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation
"In The Brain-Based Enneagram, Dr. Jerome D. Lubbe has accomplished what eludes so many Enneagram authors: how to blaze new trails in the Enneagram conversation with an accessibility that benefits both Enneagram beginners and masters alike. This is not a retread of commonly known Enneagram content. This book alters our understanding of the ancient framework through a deeper understanding of neuroscience."
Dr. Drew Moser, author The Enneagram of Discernment: The Way of Vocation, Wisdom, and Practice
"Dr. Lubbe literally turns the Enneagram upside down as he introduces readers to a new way of thinking about this ancient wisdom. His work gives me much to think about. If you’re an Enneagram student, I’m sure the same will be true for you."

MEET THE AUTHOR
"I had my first debilitating migraine when I was 17. Since then I’ve averaged about 100 migraines per year. Ultimately, I became a doctor because I couldn’t find a good one. My life has been a journey of victory and defeat, despair and hope, faith and doubt. As a complex neurological patient, I lived in a medical purgatory. I saw the best of traditional practitioners to no avail. I explored innovative, alternative healthcare models that also fell short. Every day I wake up, I am both the patient and the doctor, the believer and the doubter. Being a functional neurologist has shown me that the healing we once thought was impossible is actually possible. Neuroplasticity tells us that we are capable of change. If we understand the function of the brain, we can improve our way of life. My wife once told me that I had to anchor my life to a deeper truth. The deeper truth I anchor to is that my pain cultivates my faith, and my faith creates the possibility of a healthier future. As a clinician, I desire nothing more than to ease the pain of those I encounter, educate the families I serve, and connect the dots between unanswered questions and solutions. In my years of practice, after seeing patients improve speech, mobility, and brain function once thought impossible, I know that we have good reason for hope."
