The goal is to help others cultivate an inner landscape of awareness, hold more compassion for themselves and others, and forge flourishing connections with themselves, others, and God.

What (or who) is In & Down?

In & Down was founded in January 2020 by Nashville-based counselor, Corey Springer. Equipped with a Master of Marriage and Family Therapy / Counseling and years of personal development research and training, Corey created In & Down to provide online content and coaching services to facilitate personal growth through self-development tools like the Enneagram.

What does the name mean?

During his first training at The Narrative Enneagram school, Corey heard co-founder of the Enneagram Professional Training Program, Helen Palmer, challenge those in attendance to relax into breathing, bring their focus of attention inward, and “follow the breath in and down.”

Our experience of the world is heavily impacted by where we place our focus of attention. When we take conscious breaths and bring our sense of awareness inside, we can shift our attention from habitual patterns of personality (autopilot) to what is actually present in reality. After all, the present is where everything is actually happening.
