The Arizona Enneagram Association (AEA) was founded as a nonprofit organization in order to continue to grow the Enneagram programs formerly offered by the Franciscan Renewal Center. On our own for over ten years, we strive to further the teachings and promote the Enneagram for the residents and greater communities of the state of Arizona.

We are a non-profit educational organization with various levels of association membership available.

We primarily use a method of teaching the Enneagram known as the Narrative Tradition, which simply means that you learn about the Enneagram Types from those who know each of the type structures the best – the people of those types, themselves. A lot of the Enneagram training is conducted by way of the “Panel Method,” and facilitated panel discussions that are led by knowledgeable instructors.

The AEA offers a wide selection of introductory and advanced programs taught by experienced and masterful teachers. We also sponsor workshops through the Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition and through the Enneagram Institute, featuring internationally known teachers such as Helen Palmer, David Daniels, Russ Hudson and various others, drawing from a full spectrum of national and international thought-leaders.

In addition to teaching the Enneagram, it is the purpose of the AEA to:

  • Enhance communication and networking within the Enneagram community
  • Assist in the continuing personal and professional development of our members
  • Increase awareness of the Enneagram in Arizona
  • Support Arizona Enneagram teachers, coaches, and practitioners
  • Serve as a referral source for those seeking Enneagram information, teachers, coaches and practitioners in Arizona
It is our intention to move this new organization in a direction that best serves you.

To enable us to do this, AEA features three distinctive association Membership Levels and association contribution opportunities in which you can take part. As a relatively new organization, AEA greatly needs the support  in order to continue to bring the Enneagram teachings to Arizona’s diverse community and to support our ongoing scholarship program, which provides participation assistance to those who may need it.
