Foundation Programme

The 11 day Foundation Programme forms the basis for all our personal and professional work with the Enneagram.  We need to take 11 days for this programme because it is detailed and profound.  It will give you:

  • richness in your own understanding of yourself, and compassion for others
  • a firm grounding in the psychological Enneagram, which you will need if you want to train to use it with other people
  • the required basis for undertaking the professional qualification programmes we provide. (We are the licenced providers of The Narrative Enneagram/Enneagram Worldwide Professional Training Programme in the UK and Ireland).

The Foundation Programme is not a qualification, as its focus is on your own personal development. However, you will receive a certificate of completion.  The CPD value of the programme is 94.5 hours of contact time.

What does the Foundation Programme include?

  • Intensive Growth Journey
    Here we explore the Enneagram in depth: the nine personality structures, how the structure plays out within us, and practices for self-development and self-management. This course gives you the skills to do intensive inner work.
  • Foundations of Spiritual Awareness
    In this course we explore the deeper tools that will help you go further on your inner growth journey.  In a reflective and supportive space, you will experience and develop practices that you can use in your own life.
  • Growth with the Subtypes/instinctual drivers
    The first two courses focus on type-based motivation. The Subtypes show us how our motivation plays out in our daily behaviour. Growth is about how you can work with the three instinctual drivers in order to balance your own life and create more harmonious relationships.

All our courses start at 09:30 am on Day 1. On subsequent days we meet at 8.45 am.  After dinner the training programme continues and we finish at around 9:00 pm. On the last day we finish at around 4:30/5:00 pm.
