The Narrative Enneagram

We are an educational nonprofit dedicated to transforming lives and creating a more compassionate world.

Welcome-videoThe 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 Narrative Enneagram 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

We Are Now The Narrative Enneagram

We are pleased to announce that two nonprofits – Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT) and Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition (EANT) – have combined forces to create The Narrative Enneagram (TNE). The timing is auspicious as 2018 is the EPTP’s 30th anniversary. TNE combines the best of its two mother organizations. Like ESNT, it is the container for core teachings such as the Enneagram Intensive, and offers two different professional tracks that lead to certification as Enneagram Narrative Teachers or Practitioners. Like EANT, it also offers memberships with privileges and benefits that we hope to expand over the next several years. Watch for new branding, website updates and further announcements in coming months.
