online quality time


private online conversations
If for some reason you are not able to travel to beautiful northwestern Oregon for an in-person enneagram retreat, you can set up a private online conversation. These are usually in the form of video Zoom calls, to provide a real-time, high quality interaction. It can be just you and me, or you are welcome to bring in a spouse, relation, friend, or anyone else, up to a dozen or so participants.

Updated May, 2020:
With the recent uncertainty and challenges in the Big World Out There, I’ve made some changes to the way the online meetings work. The fee structure is simpler, and I want to explicitly accommodate people who may not have a full income at the moment.

For all online meetings, whether it’s just you and me or you choose to bring in your whole family, the suggested rate is $100 per hour. If you are experiencing income limitations, you may choose an hourly amount between $10 and $100. If you are able to offer more than $100 per hour, any additional amount will help to support more of the people who can’t pay the full amount. I rely on your honesty and generosity to make this work for everyone. Thank you to ALL of you, whether you take a discount, pay the suggested amount, or support others with a larger amount.

In our first online meeting we can talk about you and your life, and begin to frame a picture of your personality and of course what enneagram type you might be. If you have one or more personal issues or questions to discuss, we can start the process of understanding them.

After this conversation, you should expect to have some fairly clear indications of your possible enneagram type (but never a fixed “answer” because there is great value in keeping it open). You may also have some good hints about your issues or questions, and maybe some suggested activities to do before the next session.

Additional online meetings are available as you desire, with the same pricing arrangement.


a useful suggestion
It is a great idea to be already familiar with the enneagram before your first session. You can get all of the basics by reading Enneagram 101, right here on this site. Consult the contents page for links to all the articles in Enneagram 101.


how to set up an online meeting
To prepare for our first conversation, let’s begin to get a picture of you and your life. Please fill in the easy form at the bottom of this page. Of course, everything you write will be held in strictest confidence, as will all of our interactions during private meetings.

In the response box for “Tell me about yourself,” you can enter as much or as little as you like, but it would be great to have at least a couple of paragraphs, and you are welcome to write much more. Say whatever you want, any way you want to say it. Everything you write is valuable. What would you like me to know about you?

Once I have your inquiry I’ll get in touch by email and we can set up an appointment.

I look forward to reading your thoughtful words and talking with you.
