Today’s show is part one of a multipart deep dive into the power of the mind with guest Clare Loughrige, a certified enneagram instructor, pastor, and author. They discuss what Shemane calls the best personal development tool she has ever found — the enneagram!

On this episode we learn about Clare, her life, how she was diagnosed with MS at age 40 and how discovering the enneagram may have been what cured her. Clare went to a franciscan monastery to be closer to God, and while there she learned the importance of rest. Listen in as she describes getting a favorable prognosis for her illness, and how she and her husband spend one day a week totally unplugged from phones and computers. They take the time to rest, have fun and enjoy each other.

Don’t miss the next few weeks with Shemane and Clare as they go deep into the mind and teach us the tools we need to be smarter about what our bodies are saying to us.
