CLASSES & PROGRAMS backup
Where to Start First? How to Maximize your Learning Experience?
The Arizona Enneagram Association offers an on-going course of study that includes introductory classes and work in small groups for intermediate and advanced work.
All classes use the Narrative Inquiry Method and a variety of exercises and practices designed to help participants develop their capacity for self-observation. This approach to understanding and exploring one’s Enneagram personality type uncovers one’s individual path of liberation, from the habitual and limiting ways of the human condition, to a path that leads toward personal integration, better relationships, and spiritual freedom.
Classes are taught by Enneagram teachers trained by Helen Palmer and David Daniels in the Narrative Tradition who are also Professional Members of the Arizona Enneagram Association.

Overview of the Stages of the AEA Developmental Process
Stage 1: Basic Classes
The objectives of the basic classes are to provide students with an understanding of their own personality type as well as the Enneagram system as a whole, and to support students in developing healthy personal egos and fulfilling relationships.
Stage 2: Barriers to Spiritual Freedom Series
The Barriers to Spiritual Freedom Series of classes introduces students to the practice of inquiry as an essential tool for inner development and moving beyond the habitual identification and patterns of personality type. These classes offer students the opportunity to work in a small group environment to deepen their self-understanding, strengthen their inner observer, and move toward spiritual freedom. Foundations of the Enneagram of Personality Type is a strongly recommended preparation for all of the classes at this level.
Stage 3: Experiencing Spiritual Freedom Series
The classes in the Experiencing Spiritual Freedom Series give students the opportunity to continue their work in a small group environment. Having already developed skills in inner observation, students are led into the direct experience of the Virtues and Holy Ideas that can lead to deep transformation of their patterns of thinking, feeling and acting.
