"Possesses a depth and completeness that I find missing in the existing enneagram literature."
--A. H. Almaas, author of Essence and Facets of Unity
Sandra Maitri was a member of the first group of students to whom the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo presented the enneagram system in the U.S. almost three decades ago. Throughout her many years of studying and teaching it, Maitri has preserved the legacy of this original transmission. In addition to her work with Naranjo, she has studied with various Eastern and Western spiritual and psychological teachers, including A.H. Almaas, founder of the contemporary spiritual path, the Diamond Approach. As one of the principal and supervising teachers of the Diamond Approach, she teaches the enneagram as part of the larger work of personal transformation, working with hundreds of students each year in the U.S. and Europe. She lives in Marin County, California.
A great compliment to all Enneagram books but this one really digs deep and brings you in touch with personal aspects of yourself that you know about but haven't told anyone else.Published 7 months ago by southpaw_23
I was eager to read this book based on a friend's recommendation and the other reviews online. I was greatly disappointed when I read it, however. Read morePublished on March 28 2004
Refreshing synthesis of psychology and spirituality-far more depth than the popular enneagram books, which leave you wanting (most other books are introductory by comparison). Read morePublished on Feb. 1 2004
