Want to learn more about the Enneagram? Here are some classic resources, as well as articles and websites that pertain to the Enneagram.


  1. If you live in the Twin Cities, the Minnesota Chapter of the International Enneagram Association meets once a month during the school year at the Carondelet Center at St. Catherine's University. This meetings feature local Enneagram teachers and twice a year, a nationally-known speaker is brought in. There are also two different discussion groups sponsored by the chapter. Becoming a member is very inexpensive, but you can also receive the monthly e-newsletter for free by signing up at www.mn-iea.org

  4. My favorite Enneagram website is www.theenneagraminbusiness.com. I've studied with Ginger Lapid-Bogda, who is at the forefront of bringing the Enneagram into corporations. Her website is a wealth of information: I especially enjoy her descriptions of the different types within the "Business Applications" page.
  5. Dr. David Daniels has a wonderful website full of meditations to listen to and recommended practices to integrate into your life. He recently added a Relationship Matrix that explores the 45 possible combinations of different Enneagram types.
