Sandra Maitri

Sandra Maitri is a supervising teacher in the Ridhwan School, home of the Diamond Approach, and a member of its leadership council.  

She leads groups in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the United Kingdom, and has a private practice in Marin County, California.  

In the early seventies, she became a student of Claudio Naranjo, MD, a pioneer in transpersonal psychology, synthesizing Western psychology and the Eastern and Middle Eastern spiritual traditions.  

Along with A.H. Almaas, founder of the Diamond Approach, she became a member of Naranjo’s original SAT group where he first presented the enneagram and its function as a spiritual tool.  

She has taught the enneagram for four decades, and is the author of The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul, and The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home.
