Nhien Vuong

owner & founder, evolving enneagram



Reverend Nhien Vuong, J.D., M.Div., is a former Stanford Law attorney who left her San Francisco law career to pursue a calling to support the evolution of consciousness, helping others to experience a greater sense of inner wholeness, oneness with Spirit, and unity with all of life. As an interspiritual minister, Nhien offers a compassionate path of transformation without dogma—a path that honors and is rooted in each person’s unique background, temperament, and personal beliefs.


In part 9 of a 9-week interspiritual lesson series on Wholeness & the Enneagram, Rev. Nhien shares about the Type 4’s “soul child.”

A licensed & ordained interspiritual Unity Minister, Nhien served on the ministerial team at the historic Unity Temple on the Plaza—the founders’ church of the Unity movement—which is located in the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, from January 2015 until September 2019. During her tenure as an associate minister at Unity Temple, Nhien delivered a weekly interspiritual lesson on the Enneagram (click HERE for the video archives) and headed up the Temple’s interspiritual education program, which emphasized the transformational power of committed contemplative practice engaged within Enneagram-literate community. While still actively teaching and leading classes, groups, and retreats at Unity Temple, Nhien recently stepped down from her full-time associate position in order to share this transformative Enneagram-based work with the larger world—through the healing work of the Evolving Enneagram.
