What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a modern typology of personality that describes the deep motivation of a person. It answers more than just the question, “How do we behave differently?” – but also the question, “Why do we behave the way we do?”. It is also a psycho-spiritual tool for self-awareness and self-development.

What you learn during the program

  A greater understanding of people’s behaviors, actions, and feelings

The Enneagram is a psychological tool that teaches us the nine deep psychological motivations that people are unconsciously driven by. Knowing these drives opens doors to understanding people’s personalities and the motives people are acting from.

Greater self-acceptance

The effect of self-discovery is one of the most exciting and captivating journeys you will meet in this program. Understanding our inner disturbances and limitations, gifts and the way out of stuckness, as well as self-love and self-acceptance — the Enneagram course opens the door to this knowledge.

Emotional Intelligence development

Your Emotional Intelligence skills will take a major leap during this course. Mainly because the course encourages intense self-observation and self-reflection. You are guaranteed to begin to realize something about yourself that you were not aware of before. You will find explanations for habits and reactions that may have puzzled you before. And if you want to go deeper, you will work within the framework of the course with important, emotionally charged topics.

Improving relationships with people around you and your close ones

The vast majority of people who are familiar with the Enneagram note a lasting improvement and healing of relationships with loved ones. Knowing the Enneagram, it is easier for us to understand the dearest people.

Increasing productivity in a team/at work

One of the most crucial aspects of successful work is a relationship - with a manager, a client, a subordinate, or a project partner. By becoming more aware of ourselves and our contribution to communication and understanding why other people behave the way they do and what can be expected of them, we are able to improve our working relationships or team bonds. A healthy team = a thriving business. 

Restoring contact with internal resources

Our psychological resources might be accessed after this course with much greater ease. Self-confidence, the ability to defend boundaries, creativity, a sense of inner guidance, and love - there are many resources, as well as practices, that allow you to connect with them. The peculiarity of the Enneagram is in its spiritual, transpersonal dimension. At the end of the course, participants explore their inner recourses and get a personalized Mindfulness program with powerful transformational techniques to do on their own.

Professional skills development (as a coach, psychologist, psychotherapist, Manager, or HR)

The Enneagram is a detailed, logical, and intuitive map that provides an accurate view based on a modern psychological paradigm. The Enneagram offers a direct fast way of understanding the client much better: his picture of the world, emotional states, beliefs, internal conflicts, and needs.

Who is this course for?

  • For everyone interested in connecting and understanding other people and looking for answers to the most important questions: Why are people behaving the way they do? What are the motives behind their reactions and strategies? How can I connect to them in a better way?

  • For practicing coaches, psychologists, and trainers, who want to learn a new unique coaching and consulting tool that allows them to understand the client at a new level.

  • For executives and HR professionals, who are interested in unlocking their leadership potential, believe that the team is the company's most important resource, and want to learn to see and understand people in a more productive and efficient way.

  • For teachers and parents who want to build a healthy relationship with your child learn to show and give trust, true intimacy, emotional support, and feedback.

What students say about this course

Lyndsey Fraser

Marriage and Family Therapist

Fascinating, solidifying the knowledge I know, providing some new preservatives, and expanding on my own self-awareness. I really enjoy the format of videos, zoom meetings with the teacher, and support groups. I like information, explanation of the information, and history. One of the best Enneagram courses I have taken. My takeout from the course is an expansion of knowledge and even deeper self-awareness. Everyone from a begging student to someone more seasoned in the Enneagram can benefit from the course. It's easy enough for a beginner to grasp but also has enough depth to learn more for people who have been using it for a while, like me, who has been for the past eight years. You provided ideas and concepts in a way I hadn't seen before that really made a lot of sense and solidified the knowledge I did know. I feel like I will be a better practitioner of the Enneagram in my psychotherapy practice, through presentations I give, and workshops I provide. Thank you so much for this experience!

Rani Sherin Idris

Enneagram & Integral Enneagram Practitioner

I highly recommend this school and its programs for those who would like to understand themselves better, others, relationships, diversity, spirituality, and authentic living.. I will complete the Awaken through Enneagram and the Integral Enneagram programs this December. I have resolved years of anger and my relationship with my mother - saw significant improvements! The programs are rigorous, experiential, interactive, with much support, and a sense of community and are definitely eye/heart/mind/body opening and transformational. If you are looking, here is a great opportunity!

My life after my Journey is way different and more evolved and enlightened than my life before it.❤️ The Program is comprehensive, cohesive, scientific, and psycho-spiritual - opens various consciousness perspectives and dimensions in students' minds and hearts.❤️ I really appreciate what Enneagram Egypt and Dr. Khaled ElSherbini have contributed to me in my journey towards Serenity, Surrendering, Essence, Consciousness, and eventually God. ❤️

Finally! I am an Enneagram practitioner. The best thing that happened to me in the past 2 years! “Awaken through Enneagram” was a life-changing journey that has been going on for a year and a half, in addition to “Levels of Consciousness,” that was even deeper & exquisite. Not only this, but I was lucky enough to get to know the most amazing people who have become a big family so dear to my heart! Can’t thank you enough!
