Summary Description

Part I

12 modules over 6 weeks, based on Jerry’s best-selling book The Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Styles: an Introductory Guide.  This is a comprehensive approach to the Enneagram using the Enneagram Spectrum system.  At the end of this training, participants will be issued a certificate as a Certified Teacher in the Enneagram Spectrum Method.

 

 

 


Part II

12 modules over 6 weeks, based on Nine Lenses on the World: the Enneagram Perspective. This is a deeper dive into each style. New perspectives, exercises, and techniques for self-transformation and for presenting the Enneagram will be layered onto what was learned in Part 1.  At the end of this training, participants will be issued a certificate as a Certified Advanced Teacher in the Enneagram Spectrum Method.
