Do feel you’ve only scratched the surface of understanding the Enneagram?
Are you drawn to take your Enneagram work deeper, sensing there is much more transformation to experience?
The Enneagram is often taught as a personality typing system... but it is so much more.
It is actually a multi-dimensional map that can lead you beyond the patterns of your personality and into the most enlightened dimensions to who you are – including unlocking your greatest gifts and most profound contributions to the world.
In the deep, mystical teachings of the Enneagram, you’ll find its greatest liberating power when you can embrace ALL of you...
Can you be a type 6 and the transcendent awareness that is beyond all fixations?
A virtuous soul and someone driven by more animal instincts and desires?
The answer is Yes.
The Enneagram is a journey of “ascent” to your higher potentials as well as the journey of “descent” requiring the integration of your instinctual selves.
Authentic Enneagram work teaches how to embrace the highs and the lows. The refined and the coarse. The liberated and constrained.
This is the portal to freedom and the expression of the 9 Virtues, which can be seen as nine different forms of enlightenment.
At the most advanced level, the Enneagram work with the Virtues prepares you to study the Holy Ideas teachings, which reveal the nature of your true mind, beyond the lens of ego and usual habits of attention.
Students of the Enneagram can forget the system was first and foremost created as a tool for spiritual practice and awakening. The virtues (rather than the passions) were in the foreground, representing the fulfillment of your type and liberation of your gifts.
Now it’s time to set aside narrow limitations of type and return these original teachings to the foreground so you can to actualize more of your higher potential.
Of course, having a few experiences of liberation, and learning to live the truth are not the same thing. We need to apply our expanded perspectives to the daily realities of our lives.
This requires seeing some of our most basic drives with new clarity and compassion. If we don’t do the work of actualizing these potentials, we risk becoming ungrounded and out of touch with ourselves.
The challenge is to bring an expanded awareness into the ups and downs of your daily struggles... and THIS is the key to genuine wholeness, awakeness and inner peace.
This special hour with world-renowned teacher and author Russ Hudson is a rare chance for you to explore and apply Enneagram depth teaching, centering on more advanced teachings.
The Virtues and Holy Ideas are a master map that can point you home – – to the higher dimensions of your being. They’re manifestations of what the great mystic and teacher Gurdjieff called the “Higher Emotional Center and the Higher Intellectual Center” — and the qualities they represent must be discovered, cultivated and continuously integrated into your daily life for genuine transformation.
By embodying these higher qualities, your life can become a vehicle for a “greater heart intelligence” to work in the world, expressed through selfless acts of courage, unconditional love and service.
During this free virtual event, Russ Hudson will share key teachings on the Virtues and the holy ideas, and why they’re essential to our spiritual maturation.
These profound insights will give you an beautiful overview of rarely studied dimensions of the Enneagram, which are actually central to your liberation.
You’ll also hear about the exciting launch of one of the first virtual advanced programs ever taught on the Enneagram of the Virtues and the Holy Ideas.
Russ is the best Enneagram teacher for his presence and dedication to the Enneagram world. I highly recommend to learn with him if you’re looking for transformational experience and what Enneagram really is meant to be.

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...
