The Transformational Enneagram

A Live Event With Russ Hudson

July 22 - 27, 2022

More people are aware of the Enneagram than ever before. But in many cases, this powerful system of transformation is reduced to a simple typology without any reference to its rich history and roots, not to mention its original purpose.

The Transformational Enneagram: Mindfulness, Insight, and Experience

with Russ Hudson

August 14 - August 19, 2022

This workshop will recognize the ways in which the nine Enneagram types play out in our own personalities. It will combine psychological insight into the inner workings of the Enneagram types with meditation practices and exercises designed for a more direct experience of the qualities of essence, such as presence, clarity, compassion, and joy. Conversational instruction will be combined with group meditations, small-group work, physical movements, and music so that you can fully integrate the richness of the Enneagram material into your daily work and relationships.

The Enneagram: Using Our Gifts for Social Justice and Racial Healing

As human beings, we all have a desire to belong. In this intermediate-level deep dive, Enneagram master educators Russ Hudson and Dr. Deborah Egerton invite you to learn how to use the Enneagram and IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, anti-racism) for reconnection and oneness. Through a blend of experiential activities and a deep dive into inner work, you’ll be empowered with new tools, knowledge, and community connection to begin your Enneagram journey.

The Dynamic of the Instincts

with Russ Hudson

September 23 - September 25, 2022

Based on Russ' research for many years, we are getting a presentation of this deeper way of working with the Instincts and the Enneagram. This workshop is taking place in Denmark on September 23-25, 2022. In this workshop, you will understand the power of the Instincts that every practitioner of the Enneagram should about. The three Instincts (self-preserve, sexual and social) are essential building blocks for your personal growth. As you probably know, the Enneagram itself can provide many profound insights, but combined with a more precise understanding of the Instincts, it creates a practical way of applying the knowledge in our lives for more immediate results and more continuing growth and development.

Audio Program

Russ Hudson is a gifted teacher and wise scholar who offers some of the deepest and most comprehensive understanding of the transformative power of the Enneagram. By helping me to become aware of the habitual patterns of thinking and acting that keep me a prisoner of my personality, his work has allowed me to live a more soul-directed life. The Enneagram is complex and multi-dimensional, and I always look forward to hearing more from Russ about the unfolding nature of his beautiful work.
