Ongoing Personal Development

Narrative Learning Community
with Terry Saracino and Renée Rosario


“How do you relax your type structure at the point of suffering instead of going on automatic? We have brought spiritual method to this human dilemma.” – Helen Palmer

The Narrative Tradition Learning Community is for experienced students who want to continue their journey of self-development in an ongoing community of Enneagram practitioners. The Learning Community curriculum joins crucial elements of spiritual practice with psychological and somatic structure. This allows us to internally recognize and relax reactive type patterns as they arise instead of automatically acting them out. This program brings the Enneagram to life by offering facilitation and support for integrating psychology, spirituality and “felt-sense” somatic awareness.

The Learning Community is neither a workshop nor a training, but rather an ongoing community of twice-yearly gatherings for learning and support. The community itself creates the transformational field that is critical to the personal and spiritual development that occurs within our gatherings. While there is no requirement for continued attendance, it is highly encouraged that you attend at least once a year, allowing the community to deepen in practice and relationship over time.

Through panel inquiry and inner practice, the Learning Community will build or develop the competencies of:

  • Capacity for the conversion process
    • Ability to relax toward the passion or contraction of type structure, allowing reconciliation in body, heart and mind to occur naturally, and the virtue or received experience of the Ground of Being to arise
  • Capacity for extended presence and witnessing consciousness

“I was present and feeling grateful for this opportunity to be in the Learning Community. Today, that same (an) inner voice, said, very slowly, “You… are…a…member…of…this….Magnificent… Learning Community, an open-minded, open-hearted group gathered to pursue the challenge of personal growth; fruit for the soul.” JULIE MADSEN
