Enneagram Worldwide | The Narrative Enneagram

Enneagram Worldwide is the website of The Narrative Enneagram (TNE).

The Narrative Enneagram is an educational nonprofit dedicated to transforming lives and creating a more compassionate world. Their mission is to refine and advance Narrative Tradition programs to transform human consciousness through their unique and unparalleled curriculum, which integrates psychological, spiritual and somatic practice.

They present Enneagram trainings in 13 countries worldwide. Their teachers and staff have a long-standing, collective experience unmatched in the field, and each of us strives for spiritual, psychological and emotional freedom, both individually and as part of larger communities.

World-renowned authors and Enneagram teachers, Helen Palmer and Dr. David Daniels, founded the training program in 1988 to certify individuals in a four-week series of trainings and supervised interviews. They are joined by fellow instructors, Terry Saracino and Peter O’Hanrahan. TNE members encourage clients and colleagues to attend the Enneagram Intensive, (part I of the Training) to determine if they want to go on for certification. The Enneagram Worldwide website is a rich resource of information about the Enneagram Personality Typology System.

the-enneagram-instituteThe Enneagram Institute

The Enneagram Institute is dedicated to the Work of human liberation and transformation. For thousands of years, spiritual teachers from many different traditions have reminded us of the richness of the human soul and its spiritual gifts. But without real self-knowledge, it is not possible to awaken to the deeper truths of the soul or to sustain whatever degree of realization we have attained.

One of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves is the Enneagram, an ancient symbol of unity and diversity, change and transformation.
