Transformation of the Heart is founded on the following four pillars:
  • Spirituality—the journey of transformation into the image of Jesus for the sake of others.
  • Flourishing—The space of love, safety, and optimism supporting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual prosperity.
  • Awareness—the authentic perception of reality of God, self and others.
  • Healing—the removal of obstacles to transformation and flourishing that results in resilience.

At Transformation of the Heart, we offer a sacred space in which individuals can explore their journey toward God at a pace that is unique to them. This deep soul transformation happens in an atmosphere of honesty,  attentive listening, shared stories, good questions, and focused times of silence—all under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. These spaces may look like each of the following, or any combination thereof:

  • Spiritual Direction
  • Enneagram Work
  • Formation Coaching
  • Ignatian Spiritual Exercises
  • Spiritual Retreats
  • Speaking Engagements

I first heard of Enneagram a few years ago. Some friends were traveling to a retreat to learn about it. From the little I had heard, I was skeptical.

All three friends returned from the retreat enthusiastic about the potential of Enneagram. I trust them, and was willing to hear more. Fortunately, another friend was the instructor at the retreat, and she provided online opportunities for me to learn about Enneagram. I was also doing some online reading on my own.

I’ve known Sharon Hornbeck for over 15 years, and I’m so glad she became an Enneagram teacher! I’ve been able to receive training, read recommended books, and over time, discover my Enneagram number. The online sessions have been really helpful. Sharon uses a good balance of instruction and discussion, and doesn’t try to impose her ‘opinion’ of what number she thinks we are. It’s a process of self-discovery and growth, and she guides us through new facets of this system.

As a Christian, I’ve added the tools learned with Enneagram to my journey with God. I’ve become more self-aware, and have done some hard work in becoming ‘healthier’ within my Enneagram type. Understanding others through this lens has been a game-changer for me. I have more compassion for friends and family, and I believe we have improved relationships as a result. I look forward to our monthly gatherings, and come away with a more holistic understanding of how I’m wired, and how I respond to my surroundings.


Sharon has played a really instrumental role in my life the last 6 months through spiritual direction. With guidance, invitations, reminders and encouragement, I feel my relationship with Jesus is closer than it’s ever been. Sharon has helped me see how much shame I’ve carried that was never intended for me in the first place and I see more clearly and believe the truths of who Jesus is and can rest in his unconditional love for me. As a result, while not perfect, I love others in my life better too. I’m so grateful for any time spent with Sharon.
