Enneagram Intensive – Part 1 is the first step in our Narrative Enneagram Core Program. Open to all, this program offers a deep transformational experience integrating psychology, spirituality and somatics. Our foundational course in the Narrative Tradition will immerse you in the most effective and dynamic map of personality available. Over three days, we will explore the following questions:

  • How do I experience the cognitive-emotional pattern of my type? Why is seeing that patternimportant in my life?
  • Why is being receptiveimportant? How does that help me access my spirituality?
  • Why is sensing my bodyimportant? How does that help me live with more consciousness?

Each participant has the opportunity to observe and share personal experience on type panels, resulting in a very profound experience of this system and a strong sense of connection and community with others.


At the end of Part 1, participants often ask, “Now what? How do I use this powerful knowledge?” Part 2 of the Enneagram Intensive addresses this question, offering an exquisite opportunity to explore your development using the map of the Enneagram as a transformational tool. In this three-day training, you will learn the defense systems for each Enneagram type and how to work with your patterns of reactivity. In addition, you will participate on a type panel focused on your next step of growth and what helps and hinders the process. The supportive field of compassion generated by the community holds each participant in their inquiry. 

In addition to type panels, this course includes pre-recorded meditations by Helen Palmer, short didactic sessions, self-observation and movement practices, and small-group exercises.
