Keynote Speaker: Sandra Maitri

Author of The Spiritual Dimensions of the Enneagram and The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues, will address the practice of Inquiry for cultivating a mature use of the Head Center.

sndra-maitriSandra Maitri is an artist, an author, an Enneagram teacher, and a teacher of the Diamond Approach® to Inner Realization. She learned the Enneagram directly from Claudio Naranjo as a member of his SAT group in Berkeley beginning in 1970.  Sandra has been teaching the Enneagram as part of the larger work of spiritual transformation for over four decades.  Her first book, The Spiritual Dimensions of the Enneagram:  Nine Faces of the Soul, has become a classic and is supplemented by her second book, The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home, that explores how the Enneagram maps the pitfalls and obstacles we all face on the path of personal transformation.


Endnote Event: Marika Borg

Founder of The Enneagram Institute Finland

borg-marikaMarika Borg is highly respected as an author, motivational speaker and trainer.  She is the founder of The Enneagram Institute of Finland as well as the Coaching Academy of Finland, and has 40 years’ experience in personal and business coaching as well as leadership training.

Marika’s style is engaging and fun, and also wise and deep, focusing on wellness and framing positive messages that keep us emotionally receptive and responsive to change.

Expanding our Foundations:  Awakening and Revitalizing the Belly and the Heart

The teaching of the three Centers – Belly, Heart, and Head – are  foundational to  the Enneagram, both from the Gurdjieff tradition as well as in Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo’s teachings.  To refresh our alignment with the Centers, we have invited two internationally known speakers to bring new practices and insights to this teaching.  Be sure to add this optional all day workshop to your registration.  These fresh new approaches will set the spirit of learning for the entire conference.

Deepening the Wisdom of the Belly with Philip Shepherd
Philip Shepherd is recognized as an international authority on embodiment.  He is the creator of The Embodied Present Process (TEPP), a unique method for moving into wholeness that heals the frantic, restless pace of the intelligence in the head by uniting it with the deep, present and calm intelligence of the body.  Philip’s work is based on the vision articulated in his celebrated book, New Self, New World: Recovering our Senses in the Twenty-first Century and his newest book, Radical Wholeness, to be released in fall 2017.

Philip’s personal path has been shaped by his adventures as a teenager, cycling alone through Europe, the Middle East, India and Japan; his deep commitment to and studies of bodywork; his experiences as an actor, playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto; and by the burning desire for freedom that has illuminated his entire life.

Where the Enneagram, Emotional Freedom and HeartMath Science Meet:  Empowering Our Authentic Selves with  Sheva Carr
sheva-carrSheva Carr is the founding Executive Director of HeartAmbassadors and The Fyera Foundation, as well as the Co-Vice President of  Pathways To Peace, a United Nations Peace Messenger Organization, and heads their delegation to the UN. She speaks to people all over the world on how to access heart intelligence and on how to receive the benefits of the heart’s impact on consciousness, health, performance, creativity and social change.  Sheva teaches an online course on the Enneagram and its intersection with HeartMath and Heart Science, and incorporates the Enneagram in her ongoing Heart Ambassadors Program.
