You are invited to a 5-day, 40-session global event with teachers from almost every continent on this planet, initiating us and taking us on a journey of healing, consciousness, transformation, love, wisdom, and presence for ourselves, for our relationships, and for the healing and benefit of our entire planet. 

We will be using the Enneagram as one of the resounding threads that go through this conference. The Enneagram is a system that came from ancient times about how it is that human beings manifest nine different essential energies through nine different temperaments... that we can also find those patterns running through all of life. This summit is designed to help you tap into all nine of those energies so that you can experience wholeness of yourself and wholeness in your relationships… and you can be a contribution to the world.

On day one, we're going to have the building blocks of the Enneagram. We'll hear in the very first keynote session about the architecture of the Enneagram from an objective and compassionate point of view that helps us have a non-shame-based way of personally growing, personally healing, and bringing our greatest gifts to the world. We'll talk to world-renowned Dr. Dan Siegel, who will answer as a psychiatrist why he's using the Enneagram in his work. We will then listen to how the Enneagram is used in types, centers, the instinctual variance, how we will learn a little bit about typing and a little bit about the somatic processes.

Day Two is taking all of that information and learning to use it in deep inner work that has to do with the deepest parts of the psyche and our most yearned for spiritual or awakened aspects of essence. On that day we'll listen to Russ Hudson, talk about the Enneagram, not just as nine personality types, but as nine pathways to awakening. We will hear Helen Palmer who chose to come out of retirement especially for this summit for just an hour in one of the most beautiful luminous teachings I have ever heard her give with a special surprise and gift of questions that I was able to ask her that I've never heard her answer before. 

On Day Three, we begin to take all of that deep transformation and apply it to various arenas of human endeavor. You'll hear Chief Mike Alexander, a chief of police who's worked in the police for almost 40 years and is actually doing healing of officers, healing of their trauma, and transformational work with the Enneagram, which he considers the most powerful tool that he's ever come across for helping to cultivate healthy policing in America.

We will hear on Day Four more of these arenas of human inquiry. We'll hear about educating of children. We'll hear about the use in healthcare. We will hear about applying it to women's care, and we'll hear about applying it to relationships. And then on Day Five is one of the most exciting days that we've ever brought to this Enneagram global summit. Never before, but now in the seventh year, we will be having an entire day of conversations of the beautiful wise system of the Enneagram talking to other beautiful wise systems that have had great results and finding out if the interface and the dance and the space between those two disciplines gives rise to new pathways of healing, never before visited.

I can't wait for you to tune in to the keynote lecture that day with Dr. Dick Schwartz, the founder of Internal Family Systems. That conversation between him and I, about the Enneagram and Internal Family Systems, a never-before-had conversation yields a surprise, very personal surprises, and in the profession of what the Enneagram can bring to Internal Family Systems and what Internal Family Systems can bring to the Enneagram. We'll go on to hear from Dr. Judith Orloff about the nine empathic types and how the Enneagram and those can dance together. We'll hear about Myers-Briggs, a powerful session on research on the Enneagram, and so much more. 

And at the end of each day, there's a special, longer session taking on critical issues that face humanity today using the wisdom of the Enneagram, such as racial injustice, the need to empower the feminine, the need to understand the basic instinctual drives of humanity, breathwork as a portal and a vehicle for oneness and wholeness, and how we can bring the Enneagram out into the world. I hope you'll join us.
