Australian Enneagram Teaching Internship
Diploma of Enneagram Studies

This a three year program that focuses on the Origins, Psychology, History and Praxis of the Enneagram.

While the internship program objective is to produce Enneagram Teachers to present and run the Australian Enneagram Project in Brisbane, now in its 26th year, it is also a high quality program for those wishing to use the Enneagram in their professional work such as Teachers, Therapists, Doctors, Consultants and Human Resource Managers.

The first year looks at the foundational psychology, biology, physiology, history and theology of the Enneagram.
The second year focus is upon the Praxis; assessing personality type in interview, running an Enneagram panel, teaching the enneagram, public presentation, communications and community development using the Enneagram.
The final 12 months consists of pratical application and work experience to complete the Diploma.


Australian Enneagram Contemplative Internship
Certificate of Contemplative Practice

This is a one year personal development program that uses the Enneagram to enhance spiritual development and practice.

This program is a residential program at Andelaine Retreat Centre situated in the Gold Coast hinterland adjacent to the Lamington and Springbrook National Parks.

Run in conjunction with the Australian Enneagram Teaching Internship this program involves daily meditation, weekly supervision and workshops on the mystical writings and contemplative origins of the Enneagram. Interns will also study the interrelationship between disease, stress, healing and personality. Interns will assist at the retreat centre as part of the program. While accommodation and food are free work is mandatory.

This program is suitable for anyone wishing to deepen their own spirituality or contemplative practice using the Enneagram or as professional training for Spiritual Directors and Teachers.



The Australian Enneagram Community (AEC) is a community based organisation that offers Panel Series, workshops, colloquiums and other opportunities throughout the year to learn about the enneagram.
