Sandra Maitri is an artist, an author, an enneagram teacher, and a long time teacher of the Diamond Approach® to Inner Realization. She 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 seventies. She has been teaching the enneagram as part of the larger work of spiritualtransformation for over four decades.
Sandra leads Diamond Approach® groups and enneagram workshops for hundreds of students each year in the United States and Europe. Her first book became a classic of its kind, bringing to the burgeoning genre of enneagram literature one of its most spiritually grounded voices. The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul, was published in 2000, and her second book, The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home was published in 2005, both by by Tarcher/ Putnam Penguin.
