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 new 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.
ESNT President Terry Saracino describes three powerful benefits of working with the Enneagram:
We offer the EPTP in 15 countries and have certified more than 1,000 teachers in the Narrative Tradition around the world. Our sister nonprofit, Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition, is a community of teachers, students and practitioners. Our worldwide relationships include international, regional and other partner organizations.Learn more
