A Note about the new Enneagram Explorations Enneagram Professional, EPro, Certification Program:

Enneagram Explorations now offers a full 4 week, modular, professional Enneagram Certification Program. This includes field leading research and exclusives including mastery of typing from language use and facial micro-expressions, Tritype® (we each have 3 types, not just 1), the most advanced university validated research on the Instincts and the 27 Instinctual Subtypes and the core motivation and fear of each Enneagram Type as reported in over 20,000 fill in the blank Enneastyle Questionnaire and much more.

The EPro Certification is one of the most advanced Enneagram Training and Certification available and is based on over 18 years of empirical research and data as well as thousands of hours of coaching.

David and Katherine are leading pioneers and new thought leaders in the Enneagram field in advancing this powerful tool to maximize it's potential for personal and spiritual growth, transformation and as a tool for coaches, psychologists and anyone interested in understanding what motivates themselves and others.

If you want to become an expert in typing using motivation, facial micro-expressions and language patterns, Enneagram testing or master the Instincts and the 27 Instinctual Subtype combinations, or discover 27 Tritype® Archetypes, along with powerful techniques, exercises and methods for personal growth or use the Enneagram professionally in any environment from business to coaching or psychotherapy, the EPro Certification was program was designed for you.

Enneagram Explorations research has been validated by UC Davis and David and Katherine have worked in partnership with MIT PhDs to develop software to examine the language use patterns and self-image of the Types, Instincts and Tritypes based on tens of thousands of responses to the Enneastyle Questionnaire on self-image. This data alone has made obsolete much of what is commonly taught or has been written about the types or instincts which was not based on actual research. Using this research to understand the types Core Fears, Language Patterns, Self-Image and motivation can dramatically increase your ability to use the Enneagram for personal growth, in coaching and in organization development.

grey bar
Take the next step and work with Type as a mind body unity

Date: June 20-25th, 2014
Location: Southern California, Mary & Joseph Center

This intensive is part II in a series of professional trainings designed for the Enneagram Coach, Manager, Therapist, Trainer and Enneagram Enthusiast.
You do not need to have attended part 1 to attend part II.

• Transform your relationships using research on Type, Instinct and Intimacy.

• Learn in-depth information on the 3 Centers and the 9 Dichotomies for each Type.

•Discover the Energetic Defense Patterns that influence Type in the physical body.

•Learn the archetypes and key features of the 27 Enneagram Instinctual Subtypes.

•Find out how each Instinctual Type behaves when Pair Bonding and in relationship.

•Learn practical interventions to work with each Type's Energetic Defense Patterns.

What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a profound and comprehensive tool for self-discovery. It allows one to quickly develop critical self-awareness and radically transform limiting beliefs and habitual behaviors into life-enhancing personal empowerment. This intensive introduces methods to dramatically enhance the efficacy of using the Enneagram as a model for healing and personal growth.

A critical step in professionally working with clients is to understand that type originates not as a cognitive behavioral thought pattern but as a psychosomatic unity of mind, body and spirit. This unity expresses itself as unconscious Energetic Defense Patterns created to avoid conflict and pain. Understanding these patterns can greatly enhance the effectiveness of talk therapy and coaching.

This intensive will present advanced, university validated research on the Enneagram, Instinctual Subtypes and Intimacy that was conducted by Katherine Chernick Fauvre, Victoria Ruderman and Kit Snyder in 1998. Learn how to apply this research to improve relationships and deepen your understanding of the dance of intimacy. Learn the emotional needs of each Instinctual Type when seeking and securing a mate. In addition, the archetypes of the 27 Enneagram Instinctual Subtype combinations will be presented to improve your ability to identify the energies of the Instinctual Subtypes and distinguish between common look-a-likes.

This training presents models to enhance your understanding of the emotional responses, cognitive beliefs and egoic functioning of each Enneagram Type. Specifically, we will examine the Dichotomies of the 9 Types which reveal the foundational egoic conflict of type. In addition, we will introduce a formula for understanding the emotional responses within of each Center of intelligence in conjunction with those of each Enneagram Type. This will include how the work of Karen Horney, Our Inner Conflicts, can be applied to map and explain the distinguishing characteristics of type.

A Certificate will be given to those who complete the program.

The intensives are modular and can be taken in any order.
You don't need to have attended Enneagram Pro I to attend Enneagram Pro II. Each intensive can be applied towards becoming a certified teacher with David and Katherine.

David’s presentation skills and teaching style show unusual intelligence and insight.... Katherine has a great sensitivity to her audiences, a sparkling presence, and a command of different approaches to the Enneagram that gives her a unique perspective. We highly recommend their original work and look forward to their continued contributions to the field."
Don Riso and Russ Hudson -Enneagram Institute

"Katherine and David personalized a two day Enneagram workshop…. It was experiential and tailored for personal growth. Katherine has an energy that is authentic and transformative. She is so attuned to the human personality, instincts, fears and motivations that she is "dead on" in her assessments and her suggestions. She has integrated many lifetimes of knowledge in two decades of study. She is not afraid to share her own humanness and vulnerability. David has an empathetic identification with all Enneagram Types. He is sensitive, introspective and facilitating. There is warmth and sharing that is palpable. He is soulful, analytical and always "tuned in". They have had a profoundly positive effect on my marriage, my spirituality and myself. I will always be grateful.
Steve Purdom, MD-Retired Fortune 200 Executive Vice President and Physician, Self-Preservation 3
