Last year, the Brazilian affiliate of the IEA initiated a book project that was coordinated by board member Marilena Bigoto to bring together various Enneagram teachers in one volume. That project has resulted in the recently published as “O Eneagrama Em Uniao” (“Enneagram in Union”). The goals of the project were fourfold:
To gather quality content from people who know, use, and work with the Enneagram, covering the history and development of the Enneagram as a tool for self-knowledge;
- Provide a forum to show how various schools of thought can come together and show how their work is complimentary rather than divergent (and thus inspiring the name of the volume);
- Demonstrate to a wide audience the various applications of the Enneagram, in the words of people who work with the Enneagram day to day; and
- Create a product (funded by the Brazilian authors) that raises money to create a more sustainable affiliate in Brazil, an affiliate that focuses on social outreach that takes the Enneagram out into the world to those who need it most but can afford the cost of trainings and books least.
The authors of the chapters in the book are: Alaor Passos, Andre Prudente, Domingos Cunha, Irma Anelise, Leandro Romani, Marilena Bigoto, Mario Sikora, and Uranio Paes. The editors of the book were Marilena Bigoto and Alexandre Montandon; English to Portuguese translation was provided by Cristina Bover.
Mario Sikora’s article, originally written in English but translated into Portuguese for the volume, appears here in English. See the “Articles” section on this page.
