Educational, challenging, and fun for members and guests: Those are the goals of each MN-IEA event, and our Board of Directors works hard to make every annual program a success. Our chapter is committed to presenting a wide spectrum of Enneagram teachers and perspectives.

2020 Special Event



As highlights of each program year, we offer innovative workshops featuring nationally and internationally known Enneagram teachers. These workshops are typically one to two-and-a-half days in length, offered once or twice a year, and require advance registration and payment. Members receive a discount on registration fees.

Chapter Events

MN-IEA is fortunate to have excellent Enneagram teachers and presenters living right here in our community, so chapter events usually focus on local presentations. These events are free for members, students, and first-time guests. No advance registration is required.

Meetings are held during the academic year at the Carondelet Center, on the campus of St. Catherine’s University in Saint Paul.

If you’re interested in learning and sharing ways to support personal growth through the Enneagram, check out our informal Discussion Groups. Each group is open to the public, free of charge or registration, moderated by a knowledgeable MN-IEA Board Member.  Group participants set discussion topics, often informed by an article, book, or a recent chapter meeting or workshop.

Parking and building entrance are at the rear of the building. Handicap access available in the front of the building. Meetings are held in the lower level conference room.
