Essence and the Enneagram

By Stephen Wolinsky, PhD



It appears obvious that a personality born of chaos and resistance to chaos can only beget more chaos and resistance.

The Tao of Chaos is about looking at our most resisted experience and finding that chaos is no longer an enemy but a friend. Exercises throughout the book

In The Tao of Chaos Wolinsky gives us a path to our essential nature by allowing chaos to be the rule rather than the exception. A process whereby chaos becomes our friend, a familiar experience, a welcome home or even a fuel to bring us back to our universal self. Wolinsky shows us that dysfunctional personality is created as a resistance to chaos. All of our efforts to order chaos through resisting it by creating more and more systems to manage it have fallen short

will ask you to experience your chaos and by "getting to know" it you will "get to know" the essence of your real self.


This book is brilliant and it has fantastic
and wonderful insights. I shall go back to it again and again.

In The Tao of Chaos, Stephen Wolinsky offers a profound and unique approach that joins quantum physics and chaos theory to the physics and metaphysics of consciousness. In doing so he discovers radical but powerful methods to transform and enhance the human condition. With this understanding of the deep ecology that underlies cosmos and psyche it is quite possible that the process of therapy will never be the same.
