Letter From the IEA President

I came back from Portugal early this week, where I attended the 2014 European Enneagram conference. Before I discuss the conference, I have to share how much I enjoyed Lisbon; it's a gentle and vibrant city, which makes you want to stay there forever.

The conference was a big success, gathering people from 26 countries around the world. As it usually happens in these IEA regional conferences, the ambience was friendly and the spirit of the community flourished, most teachers attended other teachers' sessions in a spirit of open-minded learning, and everything worked smoothly due to the fantastic organization and work of the IEA Portugal team.  

Uranio Paes' endnote address was widely discussed and he raised some relevant comments about the challenges the community faces today. One might agree or not with his point if view, but my hope (as is Uranio's) is that these ideas will trigger fruitful discussions and will help us move forward as a community.

Carta del Presidente de la IEA

A comienzos de esta semana volví de Portugal, donde participé en la Conferencia Europea de Eneagrama de la IEA de este año. Antes de hablar sobre la conferencia misma, les tengo que compartir cuánto disfruté Lisboa; es una ciudad amable y vibrante, que hace que uno se quiera quedar ahí para siempre.

La conferencia fue un gran éxito, congregando personas de 26 países alrededor del mundo. Como suele suceder en estas conferencias regionales, el ambiente fue muy amigable y el espíritu de la comunidad floreció, muchos profesores participaron en las ponencias de otros con un espíritu de apertura al aprendizaje, y todo funcionó estupendamente debido al fantástico trabajo de organización del equipo de IEA Portugal.  

La ponencia de cierre de Uranio Paes ha sido muy discutida y él realizó comentarios relevantes sobre los desafíos que la comunidad enfrenta hoy. Uno puede estar de acuerdo o no con estas ideas, pero mi esperanza (y la de Uranio también) es que estas ideas gatillen conversaciones fructíferas y nos ayuden a avanzar como comunidad.

IEA Announces Relaunch Nine Points Magazine


The IEA Board is very pleased to announce that we are now ready to relaunch Nine Points Magazine in a new format -


The new magazine is a web-based platform offering a much better way for our community to exchange ideas and information. As it is web-based it will be more immediate and we'll be able to respond much more quickly to IEA members' needs. It will be much easier for our Affiliates and Chapters to get the message out to their members and also to those we want to join us in using the Enneagram.


We are developing a section for articles in Spanish to be posted, and we hope to extend this to other languages in the future.


We want this to become the "go-to" place for news and information about the Enneagram.


IEA Members will still have the opportunity to receive a compendium of articles every quarter.


Please take a look and explore the various sections such as news, articles, and profiles, and let us know what you think. There is also a growing section on the conference where you will find lots of information about this year's conference in Denver, including an opportunity for presenters to introduce themselves to you.


As has always been the case, Nine Points Magazine can only ever be what we the members want it to be, so please give us feedback about what you see and what you'd like to see in the future, and think about what you'd like to contribute in the form of articles or news or something that we haven't yet thought about.


Best wishes,


Peter McNab,
