Study in an Intimate Setting with a Team of Experienced Teachers
ICB’s Certification in Conscious Being through the Spirituality of the Enneagram is a highly focused three-part, onsite program of academic and experiential learning. Through lectures, group work, discussion sessions and practicums, students learn to apply Enneagram principles to their personal and professional relationships.
The primary text used is Becoming Conscious: The Enneagram’s Forgotten Passageway by Joseph Howell, Ph.D. Over six, 3-day intensives, Dr. Howell and ICB faculty lead participants through deep personal work within an intimate and safe learning community. Each session is created to intone the body, mind, emotions and spirit to guide students into a fuller understanding of themselves, others and the world.
Application and Fees
To apply to the process, we require a non-refundable fee of $150.00 and completion of an application form which will be reviewed and evaluated. The cost of certification is an additional $2,970.00 that covers tuition for the six intensive trainings over the course of two years. The tuition is divided into six separate payments of $495.00 each and are to be paid 30 days prior to each training event. A discount of 20% is provided for those who pay for an entire year’s coursework (3 sessions) in advance. Residential costs for room and board are additional. Application checks and tuition checks are made out to Institute for Conscious Being and mailed to the address at the bottom of this page.
The path to certification begins with the choice to become educated. We ask individuals to commit themselves to a formation process which includes three intensive residential workshops per year for two years, supplemented by study and practice off site. These six training intensives are conducted in the spring, summer and fall/winter of each calendar year. If accepted, students can begin their course of study at any of the dates listed. All six courses must be completed to attain certification.
Certification will be awarded upon satisfactory completion of all requirements. Assignments will be made after each workshop for further study and practicum work.
