Enneagram of the Body was released in 1997 and is one of the first published pieces outlining and documenting New Equations research and discoveries. This 20 page booklet, written by Siska Tovey (formerly Barbara) and Alan Sheets, covers the very beginnings of New Equations history.
Some words from Siska and Alan about this booklet:
New Equations research and discovery is ongoing and continuous. As part of our scientific and spiritual documentation, we also want to make available to the public the early copyrighted publications about our work.
Enneagram of the Body was our first book about New Equations research and discovery. It will not give you a complete understanding of New Equations. Information about the nine Soultypes has developed far beyond what we were able to understand in 1997 when this book was published. To read about New Equations today, go to our websites NewEquations.com and NewEquationsMusic.com.
Making new discoveries about human beings was magical and challenging at the same time. There were no reference books, resources, or internet searches, that could help us understand or communicate about our observations. Yet, when you read Enneagram of the Body, you will see that the foundation of New Equations was there from the beginning.
We wrote Enneagram of the Body just three years after our first discoveries, so some of what you read in this book is undeveloped. Our understanding did not yet include the alignment to the soul or spirituality. This discovery came much later. When you compare it to where we are today, you will see how more recent research and discoveries have brought forward more understanding of New Equations.
In 1997 we thought it would be easy for our students to learn to Soultype. As we continued with our research, it became clear that learning how to Soultype required a spiritual foundation from all nine Soultypes that we were not able to teach at that time. Our New Equations organization came together in 2015, and simultaneously, our first student learned how to Soultype.
Please note that in 2012 Barbara started to publicly use the name Siska, so you will see this change show up in documents around that time.
Our best regards, Siska Tovey and Alan Sheets Cofounders of New Equations
