"It is not my job to change you. It is my job to change me so it will be easier to meet you in the middle of the bridge. That is where real love lies."
— Garrett A. Foster
Garrett A. Foster is a Life-Cycle Celebrant, Writer, and Enneagram Guide.
As a Life-Cycle Celebrant, Garrett doesn’t just perform ceremonies, he creates them to honor the unique stories of the people being celebrated. He specializes in weddings and believes it is a privilege and honor to witness two people making their vows to one another.
A graduate of Vassar College, Garrett spent thirty years writing and editing for television, magazines, and newspapers. He won a Daytime Emmy Award for writing on the CBS daytime drama Guiding Light. He is the author of the novel The Accident of Being Human. Garrett’s love for writing influences everything he does.
While Garrett has deep appreciation for many spiritual paths and self-development tools, the Enneagram has had the greatest influence in his life. It made sense of behaviors and patterns that were no longer serving him. It helped him to find his soul child. It taught him to live more fully from awareness and essence. It did this without the dogma of religion or divisiveness of politics.
Garrett believes the Enneagram holds the key to healing our world by helping us to “find ourselves in each other.” Its sacred body of knowledge reflects who we are and who we were meant to be, with a map that clearly shows each one of our own way to get there. Garrett uses his love and respect for the Enneagram to guide others one-on-one, in groups, through writing, and more.

Why the Enneagram?
Some people describe the Enneagram as a model of the human psyche. Other refer to it as a personality typing tool. It is also called an archetypal framework. Like all mysteries, it is all of that and so much more.
The Enneagram is three-dimensional labyrinth that can be walked alone but is best shared with others. It shows us how patterns and behaviors that have gripped us can also set us free. It teaches us how to love and accept ourselves so we can do the same with others.
