This work was first presented by Delbar as a research project in one of the schools that trains eduators in Iran. School is the second home of each child and the support given to them brings motivation to learn and to enjoy. The relative functionality of a school depends on how cooperative teachers, parents and students are with one another. Teachers learn when and how they are causing stress for students and parents, and how stress, such as conflict, can be responded to or avoided. The goal is to reduce dropouts and give them motivation to learn with consciousness. Teachers will value their own personal growth and learn how to become more aware and mindful of their behaviors. Parents will learn how to support and bring the best of their family values to their children, and how to accentuate their gifts. Students will experience self-awakening with all their emotions involved. The Enneagram enables them to experience the true wisdom and strength of self, developed by establishing the inner observer. Team exercises will be given. Participants will discover the key elements of love and reinforcement of their core skills. The Enneagram can bring emotional safety, love and team respect to the teacher, parent, and student–the primary triangle in schools.
