Zooming the Narrative Way: Socially Separated, Spiritually Connected
Joyce Plaza |May 25, 2020

I recently read a news analysis in the New York Times titled “Why Zoom is Terrible.”  Author Kate Murphy’s message asserts that video meeting applications, although necessary today, can make you feel awkward, and that video conferencing makes you feel isolated and anxious. She argues that images are blotchy and blurring, audio is out-of-sync with the video, and “video chats have been shown to inhibit ‘trust’ because we can’t look one another in the eye.”

After ‘What’s My Type?’– The Deeper Quest of Enneagram Work
Joyce Plaza |Apr 26, 2019

In 1998 I attended my first Narrative Enneagram class. I knew the basics of the Enneagram and thought that I might be a Type One, but I wasn’t sure. During the class, the teachers explained that a Type One was a body type. Ha! I thought that couldn’t be right – I must be a head type! The voice in my head was constant, always active – judging what I was doing, checking how things were going, always looking at others. And, by the way, what is a body type? I didn’t understand, and thought the teachers must be wrong.

Congratulations to Our Newly Certified Enneagram Teachers and Professionals
Renée Rosario |Jan 24, 2018

I have the privilege of teaching the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition, following students in our certification tracks as they complete their internships, and witnessing their final interviews. I do not use the word privilege lightly. I am inspired by the diligence and growth that I witness during this process. To watch their wisdom and embodiment grow professionally and in their personal lives is astonishing.

Changed Forever
Ahshua Bolton |Jan 26, 2016

Long a student of the Enneagram, I traveled to Menlo Park, CA in July and August 2015 to extend and formalize my studies, with the intention of becoming certified by Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT) in both the teacher and professional tracks. My expectations of attending classes, fulfilling requirements of the programs, and becoming certified all quickly morphed into something much more comprehensive.
