We are a community of Enneagram professionals and enthusiasts.  As a Regional Affiliate of the non-profit International Enneagram Association (IEA), we share the IEA's vision of a world in which the Enneagram is widely understood and constructively used. 

The IEA’s mission is to support members by providing opportunities for: 

ENGAGEMENT with an international community of shared interest and diverse approaches.

EDUCATION in theory and application of the Enneagram.

Developing greater EXCELLENCE in the use of the Enneagram. 


Inclusive & Supportive Community:  Building a community where everybody is welcome.  We welcome, represent, and provide a forum for all people and diverse Enneagram perspectives, teachers, practitioners, and enthusiasts.

Accessible:  Meeting people where they are.  We believe knowledge should be unintimidating and accessible to all levels of Enneagram experience from novice to the expert.  This also includes being financially accessible and affordable. 

Educational & Engaging:  Creating a safe space for exploration, growth, and lifelong learning.  We provide high quality gatherings, events, and opportunities to learn from each other and master teachers.  Learnings should include both understanding the theory and how to practically apply it.   

Giving Back:  Helping others with gratitude.  We want to serve, give back, and make a difference in our community and the world. 

let's serve connection.

Our mission is to unite and further build our Enneagram community, promote awareness and understanding of the Enneagram, and facilitate personal growth. Interested in bringing your strengths to our board? Let us know on this contact form.  Get to know our Board Members below.
