EPP Podcast is a production of Enneagram Prison Project (EPP).
Hosted by EPP Ambassador Clay Tumey, these raw conversations unpack the amazing journey of EPP over the past decade.
EPP is on a mission to help people to understand why we do what we do, using the Enneagram to inspire transformation—on both sides of the bars—through self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-compassion.
Episode 20: Guide Training Program
EPP Guides are constantly growing, conscious individuals who have journeyed their own inner terrain with enough depth and skill to offer their wisdom, experience, and steady presence to others who are navigating their own journeys.
The Guide Training Program (GTP) is about developing and bringing out those particular skills and gifts, as well as finding and working the edges where we are still developing. We offer support and assurance to effectively and compassionately guide our participants with a co-guide, while inviting them to simultaneously stay present to themselves.
In this episode, EPP Ambassador Clay Tumey chats with a few of the pod guides from the most recent offering of GTP, which has now officially come to its conclusion.
Also in this episode, we pause to share a few Words of Appreciation for Jan Shegda.
Episode 19: Sweetly Stubborn
Sherrie Lee is a self-described newbie in the Enneagram world. She’s also Mom to EPP Ambassador Clay Tumey. In this episode, Sherrie and Clay sit down for a chat about character assessments, prison chats, and new perspectives.
Special thanks to EPP Guide Dana Vitorelo for (among many other things) helping to make this episode possible.
Also in this episode, we pause to share a few Words of Appreciation for Jodi Norton.
Episode 18: Making the Decision
In this episode, we go back in time to October 2015 for a conversation with EPP Founder Susan Olesek and EPP Ambassadors Victor Soto and Clay Tumey about opening up on the inside, being willing to look at a new way, and making the decision to take the first step in a new direction.
Episode 17: Around the Campfire
In this episode, we hear from a variety of campers—ambassadors, faculty, guides, and more—at the inaugural EPP Camping Trip, which happened in Northern California just outside of Yosemite National Park the last weekend of August 2022.
Good food, hiking, swimming, dominoes and so much more. Listen in for a peek into a weekend of community with the Enneagram Prison Project.
Episode 16: RJ Donovan
In this episode, three EPP Guides (Halida Hatic, Scott Tavenner and Jan Shegda) share their experiences from a recent trip to a San Diego prison where Enneagram Prison Project held a weeklong intensive with 60+ residents across three classes.
Episode 15: That's a wrap!
Clay Tumey wraps up the first season of the EPP Podcast with clips and commentary.
Unscripted and fresh
I love the rawness of this show. I have been studying the enneagram for just a few years and this show has become my new favorite.
I love the model of EPP, how they want to give the enneagram to everyone and especially those who have been incarcerated. Giving life tools to stop cyclical behaviors and break free from the prisons that trap them.
This show isn’t just for the incarcerated, but for everyone because we have all been imprisioned by one thing or another.
It’s so moving and touching to hear about the heart that each guest has for the incarcerated population. It has certainly broadened my perspective and deepened my empathy. It’s amazing to see the Enneagram used in this way.
EPP is like no other!
Every episode reveals the heart, mind and body of this amazing organization. Clay is a master and all the guests have so much to share. It is always a good listen and if you haven't yet explored EPP a little more, do it now!!
