Part of The Learning Community Series at The New School

Join TNS Host Michael Lerner in a two-part spiritual biography series with Sandra Maitri — artist, author, enneagram teacher, and long time teacher of the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization. The conversations follow her remarkable journey in spiritual work and provide insight into her work with both Claudio Naranjo and Hameed Ali, the founder of the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization.

Sandra Maitri

Sandra Maitri was among the first group of students to whom the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo presented the enneagram system in the United States in the early 1970s. Her books include The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul (2000) and The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home (2005). She has been teaching the enneagram as part of the larger work of spiritual transformation for more than four decades.
