Enneagram Narrative Teacher Certification
The Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) was created by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD, in 1988 to train and certify Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition. During the past 25 years, more than 3,000 participants have attended the EPTP in 16 countries worldwide, and more than 1000 have become Certified Enneagram teachers.
We have long been asked to develop an “applied” Enneagram Narrative curriculum, and this will now become a reality. Beginning in 2014, the EPTP will be expanded to include a certification track for Enneagram Narrative Professionals. This new offering was created specifically for therapists, coaches and spiritual directors, and is appropriate for anyone who wishes to apply the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition to their work. It is based on successful programs we offered in 2007-08.
We also remain committed to those who desire to teach the Enneagram, with an enriched certification track for Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition. This training has been expanded to include more in-depth attention to conducting panels in the Narrative Tradition, and an entirely new section on developing teaching skills.
Whether you choose the Professionals or Teachers track, all participants in the Expanded Enneagram Professional Training Program start with the Typing Process. You may begin this program without a commitment to complete either track.
If you began the EPTP in 2013 or earlier, you have two choices to complete your certification:
1) Continue in the traditional EPTP curriculum. Learn more>
2) Transfer to the new Expanded EPTP curriculum. Learn more>
If you begin the Enneagram Narrative Teachers track during 2014 and wish to certify, you will complete your certification through the new Expanded EPTP curriculum. Learn more>
“The training weeks were challenging, yet immensely rewarding. The program revitalized our already enduring relationship, increasing understanding and compassion for habitual behaviors. Our only sadness is that NO words can do justice to what we experienced. A truly watershed adventure!”

“As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20 years, I have attended numerous workshops, classes and training throughout my career. Never have I come across an opportunity for both personal and professional growth anything like what is offered in the Enneagram Professional Training Program. Far beyond advancing my clinical skills, this program has helped me move forward as a full human being.”
D.S., clinical psychologist
“The training was a huge turning point for me. The experience clarified and deepened the self-awareness I had been working toward for some time. I was able to see others and myself in a far more realistic and compassionate way. Even better, I learned how to combine this awareness with relaxation techniques from my meditation practice. I actually changed.”
