If you are considering training with Aephoria for their Level One Coach training, then feel confident that all your prior knowledge will be deepened and consolidated. I especially valued the tri-types approach and enjoyed the insights provoked by the “how did you

become a number?”

Aephoria facilitators are seasoned experts, lively and they present with humour – all your faculties will be engaged: words, visuals and music. I felt that different learning styles were accommodated. Lucille Greeff is committed to an interactive approach and in my experience has extraordinary generosity, going the extra mile, if/when you as a learner hit a bump in the road.

The resources that Aephoria makes available exceed expectations in all ways: quality, variety, and volume. Aephoria has designed a strong programme with backbone and heart. The assignments for the accreditation process are substantial without being onerous. You can dive deep or you can skim – that choice is yours.

The Aephoria Enneagram Level 1 Training was an incredible opportunity to be trained by Lucille, one of the most dynamic and skillful facilitators I’ve ever experienced! The virtual classroom was a rich and interactive container that allowed us to connect with

thoughtful practitioners from across 3 continents in an extremely diverse setting. I especially appreciated the ways in which race, power and inequality were acknowledged and space was made to share the ways in which our upbringing informs and influences our personality. In acknowledging this, we were able to cultivate a deeper compassion for each other and see our shared humanity through the lens of the Enneagram.

I've tried various Enneagram assessments over the years, but Aephoria's reliability in identifying one's Enneagram type is unmatched. As a coach and facilitator, I rely on it for both individual coaching sessions and group workshops. The reflection questions and insights provided in

the assessment report are a treasure trove for coaching and workshop facilitation. Whether you’re new to using the Enneagram or a seasoned practitioner, Aephoria’s Enneagram assessment is an indispensable tool that you should add to your tool kit.
