Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition

We are an educational nonprofit 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 is the next generation of the Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) founded by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD in 1988. We are an IEA Accredited School and some of our Core Curriculum trainings are pre-approved for CCEs by the International Coach Federation.
