Do you want to deepen your understanding of the 9 Enneagram types and the higher potential in each?
Are you tired of thinking about fixations and want to integrate the more luminous spiritual dimensions within you, which honor both light and shadow?
Students of the Enneagram tend to forget that the system was first and foremost created as a mystical tool for enlightenment. The virtues (rather than the passions) were in the foreground as they represented the fulfillment of our type and the liberation of our gifts.
Now it’s time to bring those teachings back to the foreground to allow you to actualize more of your higher potential AND to not be limited by too-narrow definitions of your type.
Virtues are all ultimately rooted in the strength and fullness of your heart. As you cultivate a full spectrum of virtues – some of which are easier to access and some of which are harder, depending on your type – you engage in a kind of spiritual alchemy where you transmute the lower expression into the higher...
For example, in Type One, the Virtue of true serenity is born from learning to presence the innate goodness of life, and to use that awareness to hold our anger and resentment in compassion.
In Type Six, we discover the true nature of courage from bringing a profound sense of awakeness to our fear.
In Type Two, we learn what real humility is by bringing loving kindness to all the parts of us that feel we will never be worth loving unless we change ourselves.
In this special hour with world-renowned teacher and author Russ Hudson, you’ll have a rare chance to begin to understand the depth teachings centering on the virtues of the Enneagram.
The Enneagram teachings about the transformation of the heart are derived in part from mystical Christianity, as early mystics studied the ways in which we human beings lose touch with the Divine.
The virtues are a master map that can point you home – – to the higher octave of your own heart.
They’re manifestations of what the Sufi teacher Gurdjieff later called the Higher Emotional Center — and they must be discovered, cultivated and continuously refined.
The Virtues are also a link to understanding the more advanced teaching of the Holy Ideas which refer to states of non-dual awareness that can open from our awakened Mind.
Embodying these 9 heart qualities, your life can become a vehicle for a greater heart intelligence to work in the world. YOu become capable of selfless acts of courage, unconditional love and service.
Russ Hudson views the Enneagram holistically, guiding you to become aware of ALL 9 types within you, while working with your own basic type’s passions (fixations) and essential qualities.
Similarly, the 9 primary virtues exist in each of us; some may be less developed than others and all, at one time or another, can be occluded by the passions or “lower aspects” of the types.
When you learn how to work with both the Essential Qualities and fixations of your types, your virtues can begin to flower.
During this free virtual event, Russ Hudson will share key teachings on the 9 virtues, why they’re essential to our spiritual maturation and how to cultivate their deeper qualities in your own heart. You’ll:
These profound insights will give you an beautiful overview of a rarely studied aspect of the Enneagram that is actually central to its liberating purpose.
You’ll also hear about the exciting launch of one of the first virtually taught programs ever on the Enneagram of the Virtues.

I was able to grasp what happens to pull me away from my experience of presence, as well as the operation of all of the nine Enneagram energies in me. Puzzles that I had been pondering for years about my relationship to receiving were resolved, as I experienced the energy of my “missing piece.” The term “life-changing” is used a lot I know. But I can’t think of another one that more accurately describes my experience...
