Enneagram knowledge and wisdom is in the public domain. No one owns it. Anyone can study it and teach it. There are many schools and authors of Enneagram wisdom. One can learn from any or many of these schools or authors.
The International Enneagram Association (IEA) is an organization that seeks to be an umbrella for all the Enneagram schools and authors. The mission of the IEA is to create an international community of the Enneagram, and is invested in Enneagram education for the world.
The Colorado Chapter of the IEA is the local chapter that regularly hosts events and meetup groups.
Paul Paiva has served four years on the board of directors of the Colorado Chapter of the International Enneagram Association (IEA) and is currently an associate board member since 2016

CALENDAR -------------------------- Twice Monthly Meetings Paul hosts these meetings once or twice per month in Louisville; the day of the week varies. Click on the link for the location. Mon 4/22/2019, 6:30-8:30pm Louisville - The Nine Domains of the Enneagram - Bev Johnson (NOTE: New Address!) The Nine Domains is a blueprint for group or organizational functioning developed by Don Riso just a few years before his passing in 2012. The Nine Domains identifies and defines the complete and total aspects of any living system, however large or small. For a system to be high functioning, all Nine of the domains must be present and in balance. The Nine Domains is the larger fractal of which the enneagram is a smaller, yet the most developed application. Don would call the enneagram “the Nine Domains of Personalities.” It is as if the moss was discovered, researched, developed and applied globally prior to the discovery of the forest. BIO of Bev Johnson Bev Johnson is a lifelong educator who is passionate about Optimizing Human Potential. She facilitates learning for individuals and groups as she shares a knowledge base that supports expanding awareness, defining wholeness, and supporting higher functioning in all aspect of being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We are lucky that "our own" Bev has been attending our meetings in Louisville - so you can meet her in advance of her presentation! Tue 5/21/2019, 6:30-8:30pm The 9 Types of Laughter - Elan BenAmi Stand up comedy is an art form where one's self is the instrument. As such, a comic's stage presence and persona provides unique insight into their personality strategy. We'll watch comedy clips that illustrate all nine Enneagram perspectives, with special focus on the Hornevian Types and Harmonic Patterns (time permitting). Join us for a lively discussion - laughter optional. BIO of Elan BenAmi, LPC, ACS Elan BenAmi is a Licensed Professional Counselor with an MA in counseling psychology and a BA in philosophy.
