Why I Give

I decided earlier this year that the best holiday gift I could offer my son and daughter-in-law was tuition to Enneagram Intensive 2.0. I spoke with them when they were finishing the second weekend. It was so encouraging to hear their curiosity and excitement about what they learned about themselves and other people. I hadn’t predicted that I would get such a wonderful gift back. In a world that often feels so full of divisiveness, discouragement and suffering, the work we do ignites a flame amidst the darkness, offering both warmth and light.

Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT)

ESNT has served more than 500 students in 2017, thanks to our remarkable Core Faculty. As an educational nonprofit, we have accomplished this with a terrific Board of Directors who have donated their time and talents to shaping our vision, and a fabulous Executive Director and dedicated staff who have implemented our mission of making our Enneagram Narrative Curriculum available to you in an accessible and affordable way. And, as they say on Public Broadcasting Network, it is DONORS LIKE YOU who make these programs possible.

Did you know that tuition for our programs would need to increase by 50 percent without charitable contributions? Our vision continues to aspire to making a worldwide impact on human consciousness. Lofty, indeed. But if you think back to your own experience with learning about the Enneagram, the blessings and burdens of your type, the possibilities for your own growth, and how you and those you love are better off because of your increased awareness and acceptance, then perhaps you have a moment of feeling you are PART OF THE SOLUTION!

If you’ve already given to our 2017 fundraising campaign, I want to say a heartfelt “thank you.” If you haven’t, I want to encourage you to consider making a donation to ESNT. We are transforming the world, one person at a time.

Wishing you hope and happiness in this season of giving,

Sheryl Cohen
