"Nothing replaces people speaking from their own experience of being their Enneagram type."
"Time and again, the power of Enneagram Narrative panels to change lives and relationships touches me deeply." Terry Saracino, Founding President
"ESNT's marvelous curriculum focuses on our own type structure as an entry point to non-dual states of consciousness." Co-founder Helen Palmer
"The democratic process of types speaking for themselves furthers the integration of different points of view, which leads to greater understanding and compassion." Co-founder David Daniels, MD

Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition

Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming lives and creating a more compassionate world.

The Enneagram is a powerful gateway to self-awareness and understanding of others. It describes the structure and dynamics of nine personality types, opening a path to a more integrated and rewarding life. Our programs are grounded in the Narrative Tradition, which offers an interactive exploration of the Enneagram through inquiry with panelists who share their personal stories and insights. Our teaching methods support learning from the mind, heart and body. Our integrated Enneagram Narrative Curriculum, the next generation of the Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) founded by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD in 1988, began in February 2014.
