In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore go deeper into the foundation of the Awareness to Action process. They discuss the philosopher Carl Popper, who is most known for the concept of falsification in science, which set the tone for how science is done. The hosts discuss how this idea applies to working with types and in working with the Enneagram theory.

When you have this idea that you’re getting closer to the truth, but it’s not the truth that you’re seeing compared to you know, I know what I’m seeing, you stop looking. So this provincial hypothesis allow you to continue to pay attention.” -María José [19:02]

“All of our emotional states, they’re data that point us in the direction of something, so we have to be aware of something not working. And the way we do that is through self-awareness, emotional intelligence, being tuned in to what’s happening with us.” -Mario [25:31]

“Collaboration doesn’t always mean consensus, but it’s about a focus on finding the next step towards truth.” -Creek [46:24]
