The Transformational Enneagram: Mindfulness, Insight, and Experience

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.

Roots of the Enneagram: On Whose Shoulders Are We Standing?

One of the continuing questions that people have about the Enneagram is "where did this come from? It works so well, but who thought it up?" People often want to know if it is affiliated with particular religions, if it has a scientific element, and how it came into its present form. The answers to these questions are not simple because the Enneagram is really a modern synthesis of many older, traditional wisdom streams, as well as the work of a number of modern explorers and thinkers. In this session, Russ will draw on his many years of experience, his firsthand connection with many of the key players, and his long study of the Enneagram to provide a sense of the roots of the system.

A Radical New View of the Enneagram

The Enneagram has been used the world over to help people better understand who they are. But who you are is so much more than just your personality type. With this year’s release of A.H. Almaas’s groundbreaking book, Keys to the Enneagram, we were presented with a revolutionary new view on the deeper spiritual potential of this system, the ways in which it can free us of the limitations of our typology, and how it can support our realization of who and what we really are. Join us for The True Spirit of the Enneagram on Saturday, August 27th at 10:00 a.m. Pacific as Enneagram thought-leaders, Russ Hudson and Sandra Maitri, come together to explore this fresh perspective.

Keys to the Enneagram

As more and more people are discovering, the Enneagram is very helpful in parsing out the basic personality typologies that drive our behavior and our orientation toward the world. But the original purpose of this system arose out of contemplative practice, a way to realize the truth of what we are beyond those structures. In this 11-month course, Sandra Maitri and Russ Hudson will synthesize decades of Enneagram knowledge and teaching experience with a lifetime of Diamond Approach spiritual development and methodology to help us reconnect to our essential being through the Enneagram.

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

Esalen Institute 55000 Highway 1, Big Sur, CA

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

Nordic Health House Hejrevej 30, København, NV

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.

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.
