Nhien Vuong, J.D., M.Div.
EVOLVING ENNEAGRAM FOUNDER
A Stanford Law attorney turned Unity minister, Reverend Nhien Vuong, J.D., M.Div., left her lucrative San Francisco law practice to further the evolution of consciousness. Nhien is an international Enneagram thought leader, spiritual mentor, and the founder of Evolving Enneagram, a community-centered organization whose mission is to transform human ecosystems around the globe using a contemplative, wholeness-based approach to our individual and collective awakening. She guides individuals of diverse faith and wisdom traditions in a spiritual journey without dogma — a path that honors each person’s unique background, temperament, and personal beliefs.
Nhien has been studying the Enneagram since 2002 and teaching it since 2007. Nhien is an Accredited Professional with the International Enneagram Association (IEA), which strives to ensure a level of depth, experience, and ethics among Enneagram teachers. She is also a Certified Enneagram professional through the Awareness to Action IEA-accredited program and in process to become a Certified Somatic Enneagram™ practitioner1 by 2025.
Nhien has presented professionally in countries including Egypt, the United States, Mexico, Denmark, and Sweden and at online global summits that have reached as many as 40k+ people in over 150 countries. She is best known for her work nurturing sacred inter-spiritual, Enneagram-literate spaces for individuals to cultivate authenticity, wholeness, and belonging.
With a background in law, mediation, and philosophy, Nhien joins intellectual rigor with ardent wholeheartedness. She is a published poet and has served on the writing teams for Unity’s two largest publications, Unity Magazine and Daily Word Magazine.
Born into a war-torn Vietnam, Nhien and her family fled to the U.S. as political refugees in 1975, during the fall of Saigon. She grew up in a multi-lingual multi-generational household in Southern California and now lives in the Midwest. Nhien is passionate about helping the disadvantaged, honoring the unrepresented, and respecting our diversity. She regularly offers scholarships for Evolving Enneagram’s many transformational programs and donates her time to various non-profits and the incarcerated. Nhien’s personal vision is for a more compassionate, awakened, and unified world.
