In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore talk about authenticity, the middle step between awareness and action in the ATA process. They discuss how this constructive act can help people change in a truly sustainable way and create a narrative that is more true to reality and how the world works while still respecting our nature and needs.

“The problem is people tend to think that changing a behavior is the same as changing who you are.” -Mario [05:00]

I think to me, the middle step that truly ensures that we change in a sustainable way.” -María José [13:55]

“We don't need to build stronger walls. We need to build a stronger body to go outside those walls and be able to explore and to adapt to the things that come at you instead of you having to be in this really strong fortress at all times in order to feel ok.” -Creek [30:10]
