The Enneagram as a Lens for Social Change

The Enneagram is an incredible tool for Individual, Collective and Structural Transformation. The nine Enneagram types offer a map toward wholeness, reclamation and healing. At TNE, we facilitate educational experiences to cultivate greater freedom for all people and to build capacity for the dismantling of oppressive systems that deny justice and prohibit flourishing for everyone.

We lift our gazes not to what stands between us, but what stands before us.

The Narrative Enneagram helps us to:

  • Develop compassion for self and others
  • Reconcile our sense of self with our social identities and experiences
  • Discover that we have a personality, but we are not our personalities
  • Leverage our strengths to heal ourselves, relationships and communities
  • Meet ourselves and each other where we are in our learning and healing journeys


  • Uncover our unconscious biases to show up more authentically in relationships and community
  • Understand the psychological, spiritual and somatic resources available to us during times of challenge, distress and reactivity
  • Contribute to transforming lives and creating a more compassionate world
