He/Him

Jack Killen, MD, is now retired from a 33-year career overseeing multidisciplinary biomedical research programs at the National Institutes of Health. His personal life journey in 12-step work, psychotherapy, meditation, and somatic work led him to the Enneagram in 1996. He was certified as a Narrative Tradition teacher at Vallombrosa in 2004, when his interests in the intersections of science, contemplative spiritual practices, and the Enneagram also took root in the endlessly fascinating collaboration he and his colleagues call the Patterns of Developmental Pathways group.
