2021 IEA Online Global Conference – July 16-18, 2021

Trent Thornley & Tamer Zanaty, IEA 2021 Global Conference Co-Chairs

The IEA is pleased to announce its first Online Global Conference.  This interactive online event will bring together people from all over who share Enneagram interests and expertise – to learn and connect.

Much like our physical, in-person conferences, the IEA Online Global Conference will feature high-quality keynote and endnote speakers, plus over 50 sessions from presenters around the world with the purpose of interacting and engaging with our online audience.   The conference will feature live, semi-live and pre-recorded sessions.  There will be plenty of opportunities to interact with speakers and conference attendees!

We believe an online conference will remove both the economic and travel barriers that prevent so many from attending the in-person conference.  Individuals from around the world will have an opportunity to be exposed to fresh perspectives and further their Enneagram education, along with their personal or professional development.  The online conference will increase diverse participation and ensure inclusivity in our community.   Thus making this a truly international conference!

We invite you to register now to attend this historic online conference

New and exciting this year, the conference will be offered in multiple languages — English, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, and Korean.  You will be able to listen in the speaker’s native language or access simultaneous translation in the other languages.  Join us as we dive into practices for using the Enneagram to manifest personal and professional transformation.  Click Here to view the conference schedule, presenters, and session titles.


In our opening Keynote, Robert Holden explores how we can work with the Enneagram to love ourselves, each other, and our world. We will look through nine lenses of the Enneagram to deepen our understanding of love and widen our circle of love. Robert will share nine meditations on how love can help us find our wholeness, bless our relationships, cultivate an international heart, fuel our activism, and live our purpose.

Robert Holden Ph.D, innovative work on psychology and spirituality has been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, a PBS special Shift Happens!, and two major BBC-TV documentaries.

He’s the author of three books on love: Loveability, Life Loves You (co-written with Louise Hay), and Finding Love Everywhere: featuring 67½ Wisdom Poems to Help You Be the Love You Are Looking For.

REACHING ACROSS TRADITIONS: A Tribute to Retired IEA Founder Helen Palmer & The Enduring Power of our Narratives to Unite and Transform Us

Led by: Ginger Lapid-Bogda, Peter O’Hanrahan & Terry Saracino

During the endnote session of this virtual gathering, we take the opportunity to honor the legacy of Helen Palmer, the recently retired co-founder of the Narrative Enneagram school with Dr. David Daniels, IEA co-founder and bestselling author. For over 45 years, Palmer’s goal — to integrate sound psychology with spiritual method using the Enneagram map — has remained constant.

What started out as a group of forty individuals in Palmer’s living room in the early 70s, over time, expanded to thousands of people who have recognized their types by seeing and hearing panelists talk about their lives. When we share our personal experiences and sacred narratives in a field of compassionate presence, our souls grow and we can more easily experience the shared humanity in each of us. As we listen to the stories and notice the non-verbals of speakers on a type panel, the Enneagram becomes three-dimensional – our minds gain insight and understanding, our hearts are touched, and our bodies experience the energies of the types.

Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino connect our roots to our future leading us in conversation with stories from Palmer herself about the history of the IEA and development of the Narrative method. Special guests will share memories of Helen and her impact in this community. O’Hanrahan and Saracino will offer brief teachings and a breakout group with the global community of live attendees. We hope you’ll join us!
