International Enneagram Association (IEA)

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.

Tue 5/21/2019, 6:30-8:30pm The 9 Types of Laughter - Elan BenAmi (RSVP here) 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.

Mon 6/10/2019, 6:30-8:30pm Louisville - Couple Panel - THREE and NINE (RSVP here) In this meeting, a moderator (Paul) will assist participants to observe and interview a couple to learn insights into the specific dynamics of an Enneagram type pairings. Bev and Chad Johnson have graciously agreed to be on our panel so we can examine the dynamics of a THREE – NINE couple in action. (If you are another THREE - NINE couple and would like to participate, please let Paul know!) Relationship compatibility is not dependent upon one’s Enneagram type, or a certain pairing of types. Rather, most psychotherapists would agree that compatibility depends on both people being in a place of healthy emotional maturity, regardless of their Enneagram type. In every type-pairing, there are natural blessings and natural challenges. 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.
