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.
