Michael Naylor, M.ED, CCPC, CCS, LADC
                             Faculty Member of the Enneagram Institute
  International Federation Certified Professional Life and Transformation Coach

Michael Naylor is a Faculty Member of the Enneagram Institute and an Authorized Enneagram Teacher trained by Don
Riso and Russ Hudson of the Enneagram Institute, the global leaders of Enneagram education. He facilitates The Part
One six-day training, The Inner Critic/Psychic Structures Workshop, and the Enneagram & Recovery Workshop. In
addition he teaches the following Workshops: The Wisdom of the Enneagram, Relationships and the Enneagram, The
Journey of Growth/Levels of Development, and The Enneagram and the Three Instincts. He also teaches the
Enneagram and Coaching: Identifying the Core Self-Sabotage Habits of Your Clients for coaches and coaching teams,
and The Enneagram, Addiction Recovery, and Your Inner Saboteur: Transforming Habits of Self-Sabotage for
individuals in recovery participating in 12-step programs, and those working with them. He is an International
Federation Certified Professional Coach (CPCC via The Coaches Training Institute), and in tandem with his
Enneagram expertise, coaches individuals in the arena of spiritual transformation, health and wellness, addiction &
recovery, courageous embodiment of one’s life purpose, and releasing self-sabotaging patterns that inhibit the arising
of compassion, authenticity, self-expression and creative magnificence. He utilizes the Enneagram for his personal
transformation, in his consulting with individual clients, and in his work with individuals recovering from addictions. He
currently does workshops in the United States, and internationally. He also facilitates Courageous Men’s Intimacy
Groups at the Health, Education and Training Institute in Portland, Maine with Stephen Andrews. He is a Licensed
Alcohol and Drug Counselor and Certified Clinical Supervisor, has his Master's degree in by Education from the
University of Maine in Orono, and a B.S. in Psychology and Physical Education. He is the past Clinical Supervisor of
Serenity House located in Portland, a residential treatment facility for men recovering from addiction where he worked
for fifteen years. He has spent 30 years in the field of addiction, has a private practice in Portland, and has worked
extensively with men dealing with men’s spiritual, emotional and psychological transformation. This includes working
with men in the difficult arena of divorce, parent alienation syndrome, or who have been falsely accused of sexual
abuse in custody cases, or who have struggled with false memories of abuse. He has studied a wide array of health
and transformation approaches including Buddhism, Gurdjieff work, the Forum, Transpersonal Breathe work, Chinese
Goju martial arts, Dance and Movement, Yoga, Diamond Heart Work, Writing, Essence work with the Inspiration
Community in Baltimore, and a variety of other meditation and Presence practices. He has found that the repetitious
suffering caused by the emotional, mental, and physical constrictions & habits of one's personality type, are powerfully
transformed through work with the Enneagram. This includes developing Presence in the Three Centers, the Body,
the Heart and the Thinking Center. He has found that the core misunderstanding of each Type unconsciously spins
them on a wheel of habitual suffering and emotional/psychological reactivity until they develop the awareness to
observe themselves with radical acceptance, compassion and precision. Whether an individual implodes or explodes
through the vehicle of addiction, or thru their type-specific emotional reactions that destroy intimacy, or by the
disassociation pattern inherent to their Type, all of which block them from their authentic gifts—he has found that the
Enneagram is a powerful lens, map and doorway to one’s freedom, one’s capacity to love deeply, one’s ability to bring
their gifts to fruition in the world, or one’s capacity to bond at depth and serve other human beings with their unique

He lives with his beloved wife, Donna, M.Ed, a deeply loving and compassionate Type Two art educator and
Montessori teacher who is in training to be certified by the Enneagram Institute. He also is graced by two delightful,
loving and inspiring kids, Christian, a quirky, deeply sensitive, creative Type Five, and Chloe, a rambunctious, big-
hearted, peacemaking social Type Two.
