Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy is an author, teacher, coach, pioneer & global expert integrating the Enneagram with executive & spiritual coaching. She is also the Founder of the Deep Coaching & Deep Living Institutes.


Roxanne focuses on being a guide for coaches and other growth-oriented professionals and individuals who are open, curious, and are ready to bring their big calling into the world.

She is Director of the Enneagram Institute of the San Francisco Bay Area and author of Deep Coaching: Using the Enneagram as a Catalyst for Profound Change. Her new book, Deep Living: Transforming Your Relationship to Everything that Matters through the Enneagram, is available on Amazon.

"In Deep Living, I question and offer a refreshing and kind perspective on the process of personal development. Over my adult lifetime as a university educator, teacher of spiritual work, and as a life, spiritual, and executive coach, I’ve become keenly aware of the dominant but often unconscious messages that seekers of deeper personal awareness and evolution receive."

Her mission is to inspire, deepen, and animate that which is best within and to honor one’s True Nature while navigating the big transitions in life. She supports others to access and embody their inner authority and has inspired countless people to live a fuller, more conscious and liberated life. Her work is done in service of encouraging our innate Inner Light to shine while bringing greater peace to the planet.

While specific retreats have different emphasis, they all center around expanding the capacity for being present, becoming more internally expansive,”being at home” in one’s own skin, releasing self-criticism and creating inner peace. She teaches and integrates the principles of the Enneagram as it offers a robust framework for awakening to reality, seeing ourselves more clearly, and recognizing our inherent connectedness to the Divine.

Beyond her formal education and extensive experience, she says, "It is my own life journey, guided by my faith in the power of the human spirit that most inspires my work. Since I was a child, I’ve been drawn to the preciousness of this human experiment, to entering into the Mysteries, and to experiencing the Sacred in All of life. After a period of ‘forgetting who I am,’ I experienced a more profound connection through learning what it really is to be present. It is this direct experience of presence that is possible for each of us and makes all the difference.”

Additional information

The real transformation journey is a great paradox. The more we embrace that which we most want to avoid,the greater our freedom, peace of mind and direct experience of Being. I am working on my new book, Deep Living: Using the Enneagram to Connect You to Your Transformational Path. Here, you will find that the Enneagram is translated into principles and practices that inform daily living while supporting you in your own transformational work.
