Enneagram & Creativity Series with Russ Hudson Hosted by Catherine Bell

Rather than discussing the creativity of each type, we will be using the Enneagram as a map to explore the different facets of our own creative process—seeing our natural gifts more clearly as well as some of the ways we tend to get stuck. Our aim is to help you unearth more of the riches of your ingenuity, inventiveness, and imagination.

During our previous creativity series, we led participants through an overview of the various ways each Enneagram point can provide lessons for strengthening and deepening our creative process and we shared many mutual discoveries. In this series, we will be working more individually and directly on our process through practices and exercises—seeing in precise ways what we need to do to open to more of our own creative flow.

In the first session, we will review some methods and practices for getting into a creative mind frame, and in subsequent sessions, we will look at how the lessons of each of the nine Enneagram points can illuminate our own creative process.

In each of these sessions, we will provide:

  • A brief overview of the points creative energy
  • A creative practice in advance to be completed and then to be debriefed in the following sessions
  • Practices that we will do together during the session to gain understanding in these methods

The benefits of the course will be:

  • A deeper understanding of your own best approaches to creativity
  • Increased self awareness: this course will reveal your talents, challenges, and opportunities as it relates to creating in your life
  • Direct practices to enhance your creativity
  • Understanding foundational keys to your creativity

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.

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.
