UI&U's Lifelong Learning Offers New Course on the Enneagram

Union Institute & University’s Lifelong Learning program is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the new course: “Using the Enneagram in Psychological Practice and Assessment” with international bestselling author, Helen Palmer and Marlene Cresci-Cohen, Ph.D.

The Enneagram is one of the oldest human development systems on the planet. During the past decade, the system has undergone a renewal of scholarly attention within the context of current personality typologies. The result, said Helen Palmer, "is a reliable integration of psychological insight about human differences, set alongside a non-sectarian body of spiritual practice that relaxes inner resistance while encouraging inner receptivity."

Palmer is an internationally recognized teacher of intuition, and the best-selling author of five works in the human consciousness sector. She is the author of two books: The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others in Your Life and The Enneagram in Love and Work: Understanding Your Intimate and Business Relationships and is co-founder of Enneagram Worldwide and the Enneagram Professional Training Program offered by Enneagram Worldwide.

Palmer’s work with the Enneagram was the subject of a 2003 PBS documentary entitled, Breaking Out of the Box: Discovering the Enneagram. She has also presented in a wide range of academic, business and spiritual institutions, establishing Enneagram scholarship in the United States, England, Ireland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Brazil, Australia, Thailand, and most recently, China. She has taught at John F. Kennedy University, Loyola of Chicago, the California School of Professional Psychology, and the California Institute of Integral Studies, and has been the Scholar-in-Residence at the Esalen Institute. In addition to being a Fellow of the Noetic Sciences Institute, Palmer has been recognized with numerous academic awards. The most recent honor was bestowed by the prestigious Waldzell Institute of Vienna, Austria, where she was a presenter at the institute's 2004 annual international conference. In attendance were recognized leaders in various fields, including three Nobel Laureates.
