When we teach the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition, we teach experientially, through group and individual workshop activities, attention and body practices. Central to this approach are the panels. These enable participants to have a visceral experience of how different the type energies are from each other, and to gain an in-depth knowledge of the type mechanisms of all nine types. Please see below for a more detailed explanation of panels.
Our Enneagram Panel Facilitator and Teacher Training Programme is licenced by The Narrative Enneagram in the USA, the home of the narrative tradition of Enneagram teaching. You can enrol for Panel Facilitator and Teacher training once you have completed the Foundation Programme and your Typing Practitioner Training.

Enneagram Panels explained…….
In the Narrative Tradition, we believe that people learn most deeply when they find and work things out for themselves; when they notice their own experience and reflect on what it means.
In a Panel, 2-6 people who identify with the same type talk about their experiences in response to questions from an Enneagram practitioner. Each person’s experience is taken seriously and respected; panellists really feel that they are seen, heard and understood. Moreover, those observing begin to see that the panel – of 2-6 people – who may be very dissimilar in age, background, gender, appearance etc. are very similar in their outlook and beliefs.
Deep down inside we know ourselves, but because our inner knowing is hidden underneath the layers of our type mechanism, we don’t have easy access to it. The way our inner world works is so normal and logical for us that we don’t recognise it as part of our personality structure: “Doesn’t everyone feel that?” or “Doesn’t everyone do that?” Often during a panel, panellists realise that their unconscious beliefs are not universal, and a moment of silence and awareness follows. The answers to questions and solutions to problems often surface with remarkable clarity. Suddenly they know what new beliefs and behaviours might serve them better.
