Who is Dr. Claudio Naranjo ?  
Claudio Naranjo is originally from Chile.

He is a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, gestalt-therapist as well as a meditation teacher and he is regarded as the pioneer of work with the Enneagram in the Western world. He was a student and colleague of Fritz Pearls, one of the founding fathers of humanistic and gestalt-therapy, and in the 60's became his successor at the renowned Esalen Institute.

His contact with Oscar Ichazo, who initiated him in the Enneagram, was crucial for him. This initiation and the following important encounters with prominent spiritual figures like Idries Shah and Tarthang Tulku Rimpoché led him to establish his school for psycho-spiritual development, called "SAT" - "Seekers after Truth".

During the last few years he has worked intensively on changing the educational systems worldwide and for 30 years he has successfully put into practice his SAT Programmes in the fields of psychotherapy and education.
