"In the early 1970s, Helen Palmer, a student of Claudio Naranjo, began teaching Enneagram panel workshops in the Narrative Tradition. In 1988, she published The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others in Your Life, a perennial bestseller available in 26 languages. That same year, she co-founded the Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) with Stanford psychiatrist David Daniels, MD.
"Helen co-founded the Enneagram Professional Training Program with David Daniels, MD in 1988. In 1994, Helen and David co-chaired the first International Enneagram Conference at Stanford University. She is a Founding Director of the International Enneagram Association that emerged from that conference.
"Helen has established Enneagram scholarship in the US, Europe and Asia during 30 years of international presentations in a wide range of academic, business and spiritual institutions including Harvard, John F. Kennedy University, Loyola Chicago, The Union Institute and University, and the California School of Professional Psychology. Helen currently teaches one program a month, while completing a years-long writing project on the Diagram as an eternal guide to spiritual evolution."
