What can we learn about ourselves from and through art? Sleeping At Last, an incredible musician, joins us to explore the Enneagram, the creative process, art and emotion, and how we can become ever more true to ourselves.

About Our Guest: Sleeping at Last, also known as Ryan O’Neal,  is a well-known singer, songwriter, and composer who's written music for shows like Grey's Anatomy.  Over the last seven years Ryan has worked on his Atlas series, an ongoing series of songs based on and inspired by the origins of the universe and all the life that lies within it.  This includes an incredible series of songs based on the Enneagram of Personality, which is my favorite personality typing system.

Key Topics:
