REACHING ACROSS THE WORLD with
Love & Enneagram
In our opening Keynote, Robert Holden explores how we can work with the Enneagram to love ourselves, each other, and our world. We will look through nine lenses of the Enneagram to deepen our understanding of love and widen our circle of love. Robert will share nine meditations on how love can help us find our wholeness, bless our relationships, cultivate an international heart, fuel our activism, and live our purpose.

REACHING ACROSS TRADITIONS: A
Tribute to Retired IEA Founder Helen Palmer & The Enduring Power of our Narratives to Unite and
During the endnote session of this virtual gathering, we take the opportunity to honor the legacy of Helen Palmer, the recently retired co-founder of the Narrative Enneagram school with Dr. David Daniels, IEA co-founder and bestselling author. For over 45 years, Palmer’s goal — to integrate sound psychology with spiritual method using the Enneagram map — has remained constant.
What started out as a group of forty individuals in Palmer’s living room in the early 70s, over time, expanded to thousands of people who have recognized their types by seeing and hearing panelists talk about their lives. When we share our personal experiences and sacred narratives in a field of compassionate presence, our souls grow and we can more easily experience the shared humanity in each of us. As we listen to the stories and notice the non-verbals of speakers on a type panel, the Enneagram becomes three-dimensional – our minds gain insight and understanding, our hearts are touched, and our bodies experience the energies of the types.
Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino connect our roots to our future leading us in conversation with stories from Palmer herself about the history of the IEA and development of the Narrative method. Special guests will share memories of Helen and her impact in this community. O’Hanrahan and Saracino will offer brief teachings and a breakout group with the global community of live attendees. We hope you’ll join us!
