Co-Founder Helen Palmer is an international bestselling author and a teacher of psychology and intuition. Her authorship is a continuing success with The Enneagram and The Enneagram in Love and Work, now in 28 languages. This work was featured in a documentary aired on PBS, Breaking Out of the Box: Discovering the Enneagram. For her current distance learning programs, visit Helen co-founded the EPTP with David Daniels, MD in 1988. Their early collaborations met a pressing need for quality education following publication of Helen's first Enneagram book. Each founder brought a wealth of prior experience to the curriculum: Helen as an academic psychologist and practicing intuitive, and David as a practicing psychiatrist and Stanford professor. The natural expression of their different orientations has shaped today's professional trainings toward self-awareness for professional excellence. In 1994, Helen and David co-chaired the first International Enneagram Conference at Stanford University. She is a Founding Director of the International Enneagram Association that emerged from that conference. Helen has established Enneagram scholarship in the US, Europe and Asia during 30 years of international presentations in a wide range of academic, business and spiritual institutions including Harvard, John F. Kennedy University, Loyola Chicago, The Union Institute and University, and the California School of Professional Psychology. Helen currently teaches one program a month, while completing a years-long writing project on the Diagram as an eternal guide to spiritual evolution.
