In 2018, two nonprofits – Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT) and Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition (EANT) – joined forces to become The Narrative Enneagram (TNE).
Originally named “The Association of Enneagram Teachers (AET),” the membership organization began in 1994 as a grassroots effort by Janet Levine, in cooperation with Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD, to support participants and graduates of the Enneagram Professional Training Program, founded in 1988. The association held its first international conference in 1996 and was designated as a nonprofit in 2000. The organization was renamed “The Association of Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition (AETNT)” in 2006, and renamed again as The Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition (EANT) around 2012. At that time, its membership base had expanded to include students who have completed 20 or more hours of training with a Certified Narrative Enneagram Teacher.
From the pioneering days of the Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP), our organization had evolved into Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT). In 2005, we launched our first comprehensive website to offer Enneagram education and promote our curriculum. In 2014, led by Founding President Terry Saracino, we became an educational nonprofit dedicated to sustaining and promoting the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition worldwide through a comprehensive curriculum integrating psychology, spirituality and somatics.
By 2018, when EANT merged with ESNT to become TNE, there were approximately 250 members. At that time, TNE opened up membership to anyone who wants to become part of our diverse international community. At the end of 2021, we welcomed members of the Arizona Enneagram Association. We now have more than 600 active members. See Our Story >
