The Enneagram & Claudio Naranjo

Of all the "pioneers" in the human potential movement, I have the highest admiration for Claudio Naranjo and his work.



What is the "Real Work" of the Enneagram?

I have been personally engaged in the study of the Enneagram since 1972 when I began four years of intense personal work in Claudio Naranjo’s SAT group. Until now I have only spoken privately with friends about the proliferation of books, teachers and controversy about the Enneagram. In all the hubbub, I hope that the real value of this work is not lost or diluted to the point that it becomes no more than an interesting curiosity.

What can you do with any of this material? What does it have to do with self-discovery?
So, what are the signs and effects of this sloppy thinking?

 

Enneagram Bibliography
An extensive list of books in print + some url's, CD's, and DVD's

I created this database using online resources as well the recommendations of Enneagram students. I have included books, studies, DVD’s, tapes and other materials that deal primarily with the Enneagram as it is presented in the West plus materials from the Gurdjeiff sources which might be of interest to the Enneagram enthusiast.
