This past November I submitted a proposal to the International Enneagram Association and I am thrilled to announce that my proposal has been accepted and I will be presenting at this year’s International Enneagram Association Conference
in Oakland, CA. The Conference is July 25th-28th 2019 and is the largest yearly Enneagram event in the world.
My presentation, “Queering the Enneagram: LGBTQIA Inclusion in the Enneagram Community,” will help educate teachers and enthusiasts from all over the world on the need for including and lifting up Queer voices in our work with this system. This work is deeply important to me and I am honored that the IEA has taken such a strong interest in it as well.
I am so insanely excited for this opportunity and simultaneously acutely aware of the financial burden accepting this opportunity places on me and my family. My partner and I are hoping to travel together and the total cost for the trip is over $3,000.
Here’s the breakdown of the cost of the trip for us:
My Conference Registration (discounted for presenters)
My Partner’s Conference Registration:
Hotel Stay (3 Nights at Group Rate):
Food (2 people, 4 days):
I’ve been saving what I can since submitting the proposal to make this happen, so we’re only looking to raise $2,500 which will cover the remaining costs and the processing fees.
Your support is so greatly appreciated! We’ve even been putting together some fun stuff for people who donate! Stay tuned for more info on that!
