Feeling Thankful!
Ed Self |Nov 24, 2019

I’ve been very busy learning my new role, meeting almost constantly with an incredibly professional and dedicated staff, Core Faculty and Board of Directors. And, now I’m beginning to meet with partners and supporters. What an incredible organization and thriving community with so many inspiring stories of transformation!

In Loving Memory of Tracy Colina
Terry Saracino |Feb 13, 2019

Tracy Colina of Ohio, a longtime and very integral part of the Narrative Enneagram community, died on January 27. Even if you never met her in person, it is likely that you interacted with her if you enrolled in one of our programs prior to fall 2014. As our Training Program Manager and Registrar, she greeted you by phone or email when you inquired about a training, answered your questions, shared her enthusiasm for the Enneagram, and managed the myriad logistical issues and details involved in organizing classes. She was the “voice” of the Narrative Enneagram for many years, and her influence was immeasurable.

Sheryl Cohen, PhD |Jun 11, 2018

In our sixth and final year as Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT), we enjoyed numerous successes and accomplishments. We presented 20 different programs in our Narrative Enneagram Curriculum in 2017, including four sessions for the Learning Communities in Dayton, OH and Menlo Park, CA. The heartfelt camaraderie, intimacy and embodied learning that takes place in these “safe containers” are a unique value in Enneagram study. We certified 18 Narrative Enneagram Teachers and Practitioners through our rigorous course of study and practice in the Enneagram Professional Training Program, and maintained relationships with international licensees in nine different countries.
