WHAT IS CONSCIOUS LIVING?

You’ve likely heard the evolutionary phrase be here now.

It’s an often-referred-to sentiment, particularly among those who seek an understanding of existence and how to live a meaningful life. Most people find that being here now is a powerfully transformative concept that can profoundly enhance every moment.

So why don’t we live that way all the time? Why is it so challenging to live deeply in the moment, in full presence? Why do we — both personally and collectively — approach the circumstances and events of our lives by skimming over them or becoming reactive... continuously doing the same things with the same disappointing results?

Many of us are unwilling or afraid to do the deep inner personal growth work to examine why we do what we do and why we respond to life in ways that don’t serve us.

As you may know, one potent approach to doing that work is through the wisdom of the Enneagram.

We’re excited to let you know about an extraordinary opportunity to join Russ Hudson and Jessica Dibb, two of the world’s foremost Enneagram teachers, in a year-long intensive Enneagram Certification Program.

Russ and Jessica have invited Julie Harris, a certified coach, Enneagram teacher, and Integrative Breathwork facilitator, to lead one Integration Session per month. Julie will support your learning throughout the year with additional teachings and experiential exercises.

The program also features teachings from this distinguished lineup of Enneagram experts: Chief Mike Alexander, A.H. Almaas, Cynthia Bourgeault, Beatrice Chestnut, PhD, Tom Condon, Dr. Deborah Egerton, PhD, Katherine Chernick Fauvre, Marion Gilbert, Roxanne Howe-Murphy, EdD, Andrea Isaacs, Kathy Jankowski, Ginger Lapid-Bogda, PhD, Dr. Jerome D. Lubbe, Susan Olesek, Dr. Deborah Ooten, Uranio Paes, Abi Robins, Heather Ruce, Gayle Scott, Dr. Dan Siegel, Mario Sikora, Tyler Sit, Milton C. Stewart, and Tracy Tresidder.

THE ENNEAGRAM IS A POTENT PATH FOR GROWTH

The Enneagram Certification Program in Conscious Living is designed to bring out your authentic self… shedding the camouflage so many of us wear.

Ancient wisdom provides a map for discovering and empowering your human purpose and possibility... and lays out a modern-day, personalized path to wholeness.

While this tool for transformation illuminates our gifts and provides a framework for our personal and spiritual evolution, it also accurately and compassionately reveals how we’re often held back by the shadow side of our personality — our own deeply rooted, unconscious patterns that are difficult to recognize.

These hidden parts can be so challenging to observe in ourselves, and so painful to feel, that without meaning to, we resist even acknowledging them. We’re not aware of the blocks we need to release in order to begin living into our highest good.

The Enneagram helps us dig deep into understanding our own type, and the emotional patterns that have structured (and often restricted) our lives for so long. It offers us a compassionate and objective way of holding our fears and defensive behaviors.

When we learn to meet our old, fixated patterns with understanding and kindness, our life force can be liberated, nourishing the true potential of our body, heart, and mind.

The Enneagram can help us cultivate a deeper sense of compassion for those around us — and for ourselves — by providing a path for observing who we truly are, embracing our fears and disowned shadow side... and becoming empowered to create healthy, stable, loving relationships as we reach our own highest potential.

To benefit from the Enneagram in the deepest way possible, it’s essential to recognize that our type is actually our camouflage — a personality or presentation that we hide behind to avoid exposing our true self.

The Enneagram wasn’t designed to lock us into rigid roles. Instead, it’s focused on interrelationships and development... and the relationship between our ego (or personality) and what we are as true presence, as Essence.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE ENNEAGRAM CERTIFICATION PROGRAM IN CONSCIOUS LIVING

“I always felt that I had a high level of awareness, but this program opened up a whole new realm of depth and insight.”

I always felt that I had a high level of awareness, but this program opened up a whole new realm of depth and insight. Time and again I gained awareness on my fixed patterns and ways to transform. I learned so many new practical and powerful skills that I’ve been able to integrate in my own work as a therapist. Most of all, I feel that practicing presence has been very impactful in my daily life.
— Eliana Shapira, Israel

“I actually do not have the words to describe how deeply my Being has been touched.”

I actually do not have the words to describe how deeply my Being has been touched. It’s still so overwhelming. I am able to see so much more, I am able to be in touch with my heart on a deeper level. I am so much more aware of the Life Force in me, and around me! I feel I have been bestowed with so much Grace! I am deeply grateful!
— Martjie, Pretoria, South Africa

“... this course picked me up, held me, led me into the unknown, held me some more, and gently showed me the continued path to walk on my own.”

If you’re ready to go on the ride of your life, then this course is for you. As the teachings often stated, this work will take us places that we couldn't imagine ahead of time even if we tried. I showed up available for whatever was about to come, and this course picked me up, held me, led me into the unknown, held me some more, and gently showed me the continued path to walk on my own.
— Marika, New York City

“Transformational almost feels like an understatement.”

Transformational almost feels like an understatement. There has been a level of letting go, a sweet surrender that has opened my eyes, heart, and soul in ways I didn’t know existed. Discernment and being have become my dance partners as the Centers come online.
— Jackie R.

 
 

Curriculum Details

Weekly teachings will be available every Thursday. Live Integration Sessions are on Wednesdays three times a month at 10:00am Pacific.

Unit 1: Foundations of the Enneagram for Laying the Building Blocks You’ll Use Throughout the Year — Integrating Body, Heart & Mind (April to July 2024)

 

In this opening unit, Russ and Jessica will take you through the basic terminology and concepts you’ll need to understand the Enneagram and prepare for your in-depth journey. You’ll discover some of the building blocks you’ll be working with throughout the year-long program.

You’ll explore the orientation of the Enneagram... discovering that the work is not just the nine categories of personality types. The Enneagram wasn’t designed to lock us in boxes. Instead, it’s about interrelationships and development. It’s about the relationship between our ego, or personality, and who we truly are as presence — as Essence.

This unit includes the Unit 1 Intensive: Nine Points and Three Centers of Intelligence, which will bring point/type-specific details into focus and reveal a more advanced way of working with Enneagram’s Centers.

During Unit 1, you’ll discover:

  • A Presence practice you can use throughout the entire year-long program
  • An understanding of the difference between personality and Essence
  • An understanding and application of The Law of One, Law of Three & Law of Seven
  • Definitions of key terms and concepts, including Essence, Passion, Fixation, Virtues, and Holy Ideas
  • The Fourth Way to awakened consciousness in life — the “householder” approach to inner work in ordinary life
  • An understanding and experience of the Three Centers of Intelligence, and what happens when they get out of balance
  • The concepts of balance, imbalance, dominance, and distortion of the Centers
  • Three gifts of being present with the Centers on the path — grounding, kindness, and curiosity
  • The healthy, average, and unhealthy aspects of all Nine Enneagram Points

Unit 2: Embodying the Power & Wisdom of the Instinctual Drives & Subtypes — Dissolve Psychic Disconnection & Live in Your Body (July to September 2024)

 

The second unit will cover the Three Instinctual Drives — Self-Preservation, Sexual, and Social Instincts, which create the subtypes of the Nine Enneagram Points. You’ll gain a more specific understanding of the psychological patterns that block you from moving forward.

Working with the Instincts also enables you to do the behavioral work that helps you see the imbalances in your life... and how you leak the vital energies you need for the development of your consciousness.

For two teachings in this unit, Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty Beatrice Chestnut, PhD, and Uranio Paes, who provide a multidisciplinary approach to working with the subtypes.

This unit will help you understand:

  • What the Instincts are, biologically and phenomenologically
  • How to work with the Instincts for healthy living, transformation, and awakening
  • Ways to work with your blind spots
  • Approaches to working your dominant Instinct
  • Methods for working with your Instinctual Stack
  • How to identify and work with your subtype from 2 different lenses and lineages — increasing the facets through which you can understand your motivations, challenges, and opportunities for growth
  • The experiential journey from unconscious to conscious presence with the instincts — through guided practices and processes

Unit 3: Cultivating the Virtues — Develop the Potential of the Human Heart to Stay Open in the Midst of Any Emotions or Circumstances (September to October 2024)

 

In this Unit, you’ll experience a teaching from Sandra Maitri. You’ll study the Virtues — exploring the Passions of the Enneagram type and how they can be transformed into the Virtues.

You’ll learn to develop a relationship between your deeper heart (or your bigger heart) and your ordinary emotions. You’ll gain a capacity to see past the ordinary emotions you identify with.

You’ll also learn the relationship between states of Essence and the Virtues. The Virtues are one of the signs that someone’s doing their inner work... living from the Virtues as a result of being transformed by their journey. In other words, the Virtues are one of the fruits of real work with the heart.

As a result of the wisdom and practices shared with you in this unit, you’ll experience:

  • A development of the neutral heart, which holds the Virtues that are so important in today’s world
  • A heightened ability to stay present with the changing and tumultuous vicissitudes of human life
  • The growing capacity to respond to circumstances with an open heart
  • Your own heart filled with new creative and wise capabilities
  • Meditations, processes, and practices to help you develop the neutral heart
  • How the neutral heart supports a creative heart, allowing you to respond to the challenges and opportunities of life with more finesse and contribution

Unit 4: The Holy Ideas: The Higher Mind & the Flowering of Logic, Intuition & Vision — Cultivate the Capacity for Creative Solutions & Perspectives (October to November 2024)

 

For one of the teachings in this unit, Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty A.H. Almaas, also known as Hameed Ali.

The Holy Ideas arise when you’ve worked through the fixated point of view of your ego.

You’ll explore the quality of mind — embracing whatever you think about — and how it leads to new creative solutions and perspectives. As you develop the quality of mind, you learn to live more closely to your true mind (or higher mind) and a nondual orientation. You see possibilities you’re not able to see from a fixated mind.

This growth is crucial to living with the challenges of our world today. We have to learn to act in accordance and alignment with a greater truth.

During this unit, you’ll discover how:

  • The Holy ideas relate to nondual consciousness
  • As the symbol of the Enneagram indicates, any authentic nonduality also contains discernment that includes dualistic perception
  • To access and live in alignment with a truth much bigger than your own
  • Urgent it is to cultivate a quality of mind perspective, so you can help heal the suffering in today’s world
  • To cultivate practices that will serve you for the rest of your life

Unit 5: Living Closer to Essence to Access Higher Wisdom & the Divine (November 2024 to January 2025)*

 

For this unit, you’ll receive the gift of a teaching from Cynthia Bourgeault.

You’ll take all the wisdom, insights, and practices you’ve learned so far and put them in a larger context — that is, conscious living.

We take an initial path when we start deepening our understanding of the Enneagram and its profound applications. This path moves us closer to our Essence... and to our ability to refer to our Essence and ask it for guidance. The goal is to live more and more each day as Essence itself, while also becoming more and more profoundly human.

In this unit, Russ and Jessica will guide you into the depth and breadth of the qualities of Essence.

You’ll start to relax out of your fixations and suffering enough to access the energies of Essence. You’ll explore the law of one, law of three, and law of seven. You’ll talk about and move toward experiencing more directly what’s traditionally been known as “the Divine.”

In this unit, Russ and Jessica will share:

  • A distillation of the first half of this program
  • An exploration of the various faces of the Divine, grace, and blessings
  • About the Missing Piece and the Transparent Veil
  • The Law of One, Law of Three, and Law of Seven
  • Profound teachings on relatedness
  • What it means to experience authentic love in human relationships
  • Many practices and processes to integrate this intensive body of teachings
  • Practices to develop your intuitive capacity

*December 12, 2024 to January 7, 2025: We will take a pause from scheduled classes and teachings. This will be an opportunity to digest teachings and catch up on reflections before we transition into the next portion of the program.

Unit 6: The Art of Recognizing the Enneagram Types of Others — Gain Insight Into Yourself & Others (January to February 2025)

 

In this unit, Russ and Jessica will offer their insights about how the recognition of type helps us interrupt the patterns of our fixations. For some of the teachings in this unit, Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty Ginger Lapid-Bogda, PhD, and Katherine Fauvre to help you understand the smaller things that can help you type people, such as facial gestures, languaging, word usage, and other patterns.

They’ll provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to recognize these characteristics in other people... as well as the “do’s and don’ts” protocol around discussing them and using them in support of others... instead of imposing our perceptions of them.

In this unit, you’ll explore:

  • Ways to notice aspects of other people’s types, and use that information in service to them
  • The importance of understanding our fixations
  • How fixations keep us sheltered from our fears of separateness
  • Why we become invested in the feelings of any moment — emotionally, physically, and mentally

Unit 7: Methods & Practices for Illuminating Pathways to Growth & Transformation (February to April 2025)

 

For several teachings in this unit, Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty Andrea Isaacs, Kathy Jankowski, Tom Condon, Roxanne Howe-Murphy, EdD, Mario SikoraMarion Gilbert, Heather Ruce, Terry Sarancino, and Christopher Copeland.

You’ll discover and experience a wide variety of potent methodologies for transformation. Some will come directly from the Enneagram, and others from the modalities that people in other fields use to help illuminate the somatic, emotional, and cognitive pathways of growth needed for transformation.

Russ, Jessica, and the other experts will guide practices to help you with your affect, healing, responsiveness, and sensitivity, as you cultivate discernment, clarity, and vision.

Here are just some of the brilliant guest teachers and practices you’ll deepen your inner Enneagram work with:

  • Integrative Breathwork and somatic practices with Jessica
  • Movement, emotional expression, and mudras with Andrea Isaacs
  • Qigong and 3-centered practices with Kathy Jankowski
  • Coaching with the Enneagram with Tom Condon and Roxanne Howe-Murphy, EdD
  • Gurdjieff Movements with Heather Ruce
  • How and when to use logic and intuition with Russ and Mario Sikora
  • The Somatic Enneagram with Marion Gilbert
  • Creating and facilitating 3-centered practices with Jessica and Russ
  • Understanding the Inner Observer and noticing where you’re placing your attention, with Terry Sarancino and Christopher Copeland

Unit 8: The Enneagram as a Tool for Cultural Competency & Inclusivity — Support the Movement Toward Equity (April to May 2025)

 

For the teachings in this unit, Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty Dr. Deborah Egerton, PhD, Tyler Sit, Milton C. Stewart, and Abi Robins.

You’ll learn how to use the Enneagram to support the movement toward equity within our culture — addressing issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and more. You’ll discover how the Enneagram can help accelerate and strengthen pathways to a more conscious intersectionality... and how to use it as a tool to avoid the pitfalls of spiritual bypass and ignorance around cultural challenges.

In this 6-session unit, you’ll discover how we can work with the Enneagram to address social issues in our society in a deeper way.

Your remarkable teachers will show you:

  • How to discriminate among a panoply of cultural assumptions that you might not be conscious of, but that are always present
  • Ways to become culturally competent by cutting through the tendency toward spiritual bypass, spiritual inflation, and a premature declaration of transcendence
  • Practices for letting go of cultural assumptions and being present with people
  • What each of the 9 types can be blind to in issues of racism, genderism, sexual orientation discrimination, and all oppressive “isms”
  • How to cultivate your type’s contribution to racial-healing efforts and the building of an equitable culture
  • How to use your inner work with the Enneagram to help you do the outer work of recognizing and ending oppression and racism, and cultivating healthy intersectionality and inclusivity

Unit 9: Building Transformational Communities With the Enneagram for Safety, Learning, Creativity & Innovation (May 2025)

 

This unit is taught by Jessica, Russ, and guest teacher Dr. Deborah Ooten.

The gathering of people for a common purpose can be one of the most essential ways that humanity gives birth to and builds structures for safety, learning, creativity, and innovation. This unit will address how the Enneagram can enhance and empower all of our communities — personal, therapeutic, business-oriented, and organizational... and those involved in service, social action, and spiritual fellowship.

These kinds of communities can support and encourage us to walk the challenging terrain of self-awareness and spiritual growth.

Jessica, Russ, and Deborah will help you paint a vision and give you tools to build a healthy Enneagram community for inner work, personal development, and conscious growth.

In this highly applicable unit, you’ll learn:

  • How resistance and type can keep you from building or entering communities, and limit your receptivity to the gifts of community
  • Pathways to enhance the gifts of different types in community
  • Ways to create a culture of complete wholeness by understanding and inviting all 9 energies into the work of a particular community
  • How to work with the shadows of the Enneagram and the shadows of community
  • Community-building exercises you can use in your local groups

Unit 10: A Scientific Approach to the Enneagram for Reaffirming the Validity of This Important Life Path (May 2025)

 

Russ and Jessica have brought in guest faculty Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Jerome D. Lubbe to teach one session each in this unit. Both of these esteemed faculty have been involved in studies with a scientific orientation that’s inseparable from humanistic or spiritual principles.

Under their guidance, you’ll explore science and research, and discuss science as a doorway to consciousness and the scientific underpinnings of the Enneagram. They’ll share science-based validation that the Enneagram supports real transformation.

You’ll discover:

  • Scientific evidence that the Enneagram is a valid system to be applied in many arenas
  • Physiological issues involved in Enneagram work
  • How to discuss the Enneagram in a logical way
  • What we know about the brain, neuroscience, temperament, and consciousness
  • Brain-based methods for working with physical illness
  • Brain-based methods for transforming psychological patterns

Unit 11: Implications of the Work — How the Enneagram Can Continue to Transform You & Your Contribution to the World (May to June 2025)

 

In this final unit, Russ and Jessica will provide you with the encouragement and tips you’ll need as you continue to encounter the realities of life. They’ll reaffirm how these tools can help you meet various circumstances and conditions as Presence itself.

You’ll have a direct experience of the power and efficacy of all you’ve learned throughout the program... and how it’s changed you and will continue to transform your life.

Russ and Jessica will help you assess the implications this work will continue to contribute to your personal life. You’ll create practices for yourself and take stock of where you’ve landed at the end of this profound journey.

In this final unit, you’ll evaluate:

  • What’s changed for you as a result of the program
  • How spending a year immersed in this Enneagram program has transformed your contribution to the world
  • Where you are now, as you look back at where you were a year ago
  • Whether you’ve fulfilled the intentions and achieved the goals you set at the start of the program
  • What surprised you about the journey you’ve taken
  • What’s calling you forward as a result of your newfound awareness, insight, and knowledge

Q: What are the program details and schedule for the training program?

 

A: All sessions will be held online through Zoom. There will be no in-person engagement.

The certification program starts on April 17, 2024, and ends on June 4, 2025. There are breaks built into the program with a month off from December 12, 2024 to January 7, 2025.

Three Monthly Live Integration Sessions: 120 minutes on Wednesdays at 10:00am Pacific. (90 minutes will be with Faculty followed by 30 minutes of Peer Discussion.) While we strongly recommend live-on-Zoom participation if possible, recordings will be provided. Students are encouraged to attend Integration sessions or access the recordings during the same week of the live teaching in order to stay current with the delivery of this program.

One Weekly Teaching Session (approximately 90-105 minutes) With Russ Hudson, Jessica Dibb and/or Guest Faculty will be made available each Thursday: Teaching Sessions will be made viewable online, from the comfort of your own home. We recommend students watch the weekly Teaching Session prior to the following Live Integration to be ready to engage in discussion and practices with Faculty based on the teaching.

Two Facilitated Learning Labs Every Month
You’ll have the opportunity twice each month to meet with a cohort of 12-15 of your fellow participants and a facilitator on Zoom. You’ll be able to have more personalized discussions, share experiences, and practice embodying the teachings. Each lab will be facilitated by a Certified Enneagram Teacher and you’ll meet with the same facilitator and group for the duration of the program. Attendance in at least one Lab per month is required for certification, however these small group sessions are such an invaluable part of the program, we encourage you to attend as many as you can. Labs will be scheduled for a variety of days and times to accommodate participants’ differing schedules and time zones. All Labs are conducted as live meetings and will not be recorded.

Ten Elective Workshops: Throughout the year, you’ll have access to a variety of workshops recorded by special guest faculty on key Enneagram-related topics. These offerings can supplement and help you personalize your year-long experience as you determine which areas interest you most. To earn your certification, you’ll submit a written reflection on three workshops of your choice, although you’re more than welcome to watch as many as you’d like.

Q: If I participate, how many hours per month should I plan to dedicate to this training program?

 

A: This will vary, depending on whether you choose to attend all offerings or the minimum requirement, but on average, you can expect to spend approximately 15-24 hours per month on this program.
