Featuring Renowned Enneagram Teachers
Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb
With Guest Faculty Cynthia Bourgeault
Internationally Renowned Author & Spiritual Teacher
New 17-week Live Video Training Starts
Thursday, August 9, 2018

Discover experiential practices to activate higher realization — and embody the deepest, most sacred aspects of your Enneagram type in your everyday life.

Heal ‘core suffering’ in yourself and our world by immersing yourself in the true teachings (and purpose) of the Virtues, Holy Ideas & Instincts.

As a personality typology, the Enneagram can be illuminating...

Yet, the original intention of the Enneagram is something more profound: To serve as an evolutionary map for exploringand embodying the deeper qualities of human nature.

If you’ve studied the Enneagram, you’ve likely begun to work with these revelatory insights. You now have a lens into lifelong patterns that have kept you from experiencing wholeness and fulfilling your potential.

Yet, the Enneagram is rich and complex... and the opportunities for self-discovery and the potential for healing are lifelong as well.

Through depth teaching — rooted in the original Enneagram teachings — you can access and integrate the full mystical power of the Enneagram.

And when the depth teachings of the Enneagram are paired with holistic, experiential practices, you actually begin to transmute your patterns (physiologically, cognitively, and emotionally) into the sacred aspects of your type...

Living from your essence. Activating your soul’s purpose and sharing your gifts. Loving with all of your heart.

And perhaps most importantly, helping to heal our broken world.

A Unique, Evolutionary Program to Support Personal & Collective Wholeness and Awakening

World-renowned Enneagram teachers Russ Hudson and Jessica Dibb have been the innovators of a depth approach to the Enneagram...

And NOW... they’ve challenged themselves to offer the most comprehensive program on the Enneagram they’ve ever presented. It encompasses the rich and nuanced levels of the Nine types, including the:

...As well as what lies beyond the Enneagram Map — emergent for YOU.

This is your opportunity to join with a dedicated group — beginning seekers, advanced practitioners, and seasoned teachers — to share in this challenge to activate a higher level reality, so all of us and not only discover truth and love, but create a path of unprecedented authenticity and depth.

Jessica and Russ will bring a new level of intimacy, precision, inquiry and experiential practice to this intensive, experiential Enneagram journey, intended for both beginning and advanced students.

You’ll explore and experience:

Very few teachers have the knowledge, spiritual vision and techniques to help people truly navigate (and apply) the profound realizations available through the Enneagram.

Russ Hudson and Jessica Dibb have conceived this approach and new body of teachings and practices — integrating both the modern Enneagram and its ancient mystical origins — to guide you into the most exciting terrain of the Enneagram, yet.

Over 17 transformative weeks, you’ll explore the deepest dimensions of the Enneagram — from personality to wholeness to the Higher Realizations that dwell in the territory beyond your type.

This unusually comprehensive program will guide you to apply inner realizations to social change and activism — transforming personal healing into meaningful contributions. You’ll be invited to explore acts of service that are authentic and ignited by the sacred qualities of the nine types.

Greater Connection Through Live Streaming Video

So you can better connect with their teachings, all sessions will be live-streamed on video. This video connection will be easy to use and help you integrate the material and practices. Or, you can easily connect via audio through the Internet or your phone.

What You’ll Discover in These 17 Weeks

Course sessions are on Thursdays at Noon Pacific.

In this brand-new Enneagram training, you’ll be guided by Russ Hudson, one the foremost and unique articulators of the Enneagram Teachings; and Jessica Dibb, one of the foremost and innovative creators of experiential practices in the Enneagram field.

Together, they will present an original evolutionary program to support your wholeness, consciousness, and awakening through the multidimensional guidance and transmission of the Enneagram.

Russ and Jessica will illuminate and articulate the higher aspects of the Enneagram, beyond type — sharing innovative practices to help you integrate and embody what you discover, in your daily life.

They’ll also explicate and build the architecture of what actually happens to your body, heart and head as you activate the deeper qualities of not only your own type but all nine types.

During this 17-week journey into the sacred dimensions of the Enneagram, you’ll discover:

  • The original purpose of the Enneagram that takes us far beyond mere descriptions of our character structures
  • The real meanings of the passions, the fixations, the centers, the instincts, the Virtues, the Holy Ideas, as well as of Essence and Personality
  • The nature of experiential work in the context of the Enneagram
  • The role of presence in working with the patterns of personality/ego.
  • The innate life qualities called Instincts — and how they appear in nature and in you
  • The deep qualities of Instincts as felt sensations, which are part of your body’s wisdom
  • How the core suffering of the heart shows up in the Instincts, and interferes with their natural functioning
  • A customized set of experiential practices for working with your Instincts and creating better balance between them
  • The definition and meaning of the Holy Ideas
  • The Holy Ideas’ relationship to the Virtues and the essential qualities and gifts of each of the 9 types
  • How these deeper states of consciousness or nondual awareness relate to your mental patterns or “fixations.”
  • Psychological patterns that tend to dominate our relationships
  • Relationship as a structure necessary for life, but not able to bring the heart what it truly seeks
  • How to open to new qualities of genuine relatedness: appreciation, aliveness, and kindness
  • Sensations and energy flows in your body that occur when psychological patterns are relaxed
  • Practices for working with a current important relationship and recognizing the patterns you’re bringing to it
  • Each Enneagram point as an expression of Essence and an aspect of the Divine
  • Release your egoic perceptions of the Divine

The ancient wisdom of the Enneagram can aid in true psychological and spiritual integration — and serve the compelling need of our species to develop in unimaginable ways so we can address, and heal, the collective wounds of our times.

This brand-new immersive training will be an stimulating, cutting-edge and personal. Each LIVE teaching and discussion session will build harmoniously upon the next and feature at least one of the two faculty.

Module 1: Opening to Your True Potential: The Promise of a Depth Approach to the Enneagram With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (August 9)

The experiences and qualities of life which are most fulfilling and significant for our journey often get overlooked or forgotten because we spend our days more focused on other matters and activities... and often doing so from a contracted state of fear, separation, or inertia.

Many of us have the capacity to contact the deeper layers of our heart and soul, yet we haven’t learned to stay connected to this parts of us as we move through our busy lives.

Why it is so difficult to stay connected the sacred? Why do fear, separation and inertia tend to be our default modes?

While often we will learn about the Enneagram as a classification system for human beings — simply finding out which of nine types best fits us — it is actually intended as a study of bringing the depth of our awareness and kindness to the patterns in our psyche that lead us to forget our essence and disconnect from the Divine.

In this first module, you’ll discover:

  • The depth approach to the Enneagram and how it differs from other approaches
  • Components and tools of this unique approach
  • The real meanings of the passions, the fixations, the centers, the instincts, the Virtues, the Holy Ideas, as well as of Essence and Personality
  • The original purpose of the Enneagram that takes us far beyond mere descriptions of our character structures

Module 2: The Inner Marriage of Personality and Soul: Discovering, Navigating and Cultivating Being & Inner Space
With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (August 16)

In its original sense, the Enneagram does not describe “who we are” but invites us to look at what we are usually “taking ourselves to be.” Through the cultivation of presence in our bodies, hearts, and minds, we develop the capacity to actually see andfeel the psychological patterns that usually dominate our experience.

In this way, we begin to participate in an inner marriage of soul and personality. This brings about not only spiritual experiences, but a genuine transformation of our lives through a genuine transformation of what motivates our choices and actions.

In this class, you’ll discover:

  • The nature of experiential work in the context of the Enneagram
  • The role of presence in working with the patterns of personality/ego.
  • The “alchemical gold” of inner work — the results of cultivating our true inner life
  • The difference between realization and actualization
  • How to “be with” your experience rather than rejecting or judging it
  • The correct roles of the three centers: body, heart, and head.
  • The relationship between the ego’s strivings and a deeper wish for authentic qualities of being
  • How different approaches to inner work can support your journey

Module 3: Inner Work & The Instincts: Bringing Presence to Your Instinctual Drives
With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (August 23)

The Instincts (or subtypes), and the roles they play in our lives and in our development, are one of the “hottest” topics in the Enneagram field. And while there are many teachers involved with this subject, presenting different theories, applications, and perspectives, the role of the instincts in inner work is seldom presented.

Here we will have the beauty of Russ and Jessica bringing together different facets of this teaching arising from the different elements of this work that they have focused on. Together they will weave a rich immersion in the topic, not to give final answers, but to launch all involved on a deeper investigation of how these fundamental intelligences operate in our personal lives.

The three basic Instincts as described in Enneagram theory and in Fourth Way teachings are nature’s intelligence acting through us. When these instinctual drives combine with our primary Enneagram pattern, it produces a primary “subtype,” with a particular set of behaviors. First, though, it’s important to recognize the Instincts as specific energies and sensations in the body.

In this module, you’ll explore the sense of all three drives and how they manifest in particular behaviors in your daily life. While one of these drives may be more prominent than the others, all three are operating in you in some way.

A big part of inner work is learning to recognize the deeply ingrained habits in relation to your instinctual drives — and to also acknowledge the areas of life you’ve unwittingly neglected. As you develop awareness and more balance among the Instincts, you create a stable platform for opening to the deeper mysteries of your heart and mind. From this foundation, you can more easily integrate these expansive, spiritual experiences into daily life.

We will explore the direct experience of each instinct and look at common ways that it appears in daily human behavior. And a practice will be introduced of consciously using all three instincts together to create new neurological circuits for integrated choices and actions.

  • The innate life qualities called Instincts — and how they appear in nature and in you
  • How to recognize and experience the deep qualities of Instincts as felt sensations, which are part of your body’s wisdom
  • How to recognize Blind spots and inertia in each of the instincts
  • 9 Zones within the Instincts that reveal different arenas of life in which these natural intelligences play out
  • How the core suffering of the heart shows up in the Instincts, and interferes with their natural functioning
  • How to create a set of customized practices for working with the Instincts and creating better balance between them
  • How the Instincts are transformed from supports for the ego, to support for your soul realization and maturation
  • An emerging feminine and right brain perspective and orientation to the instincts that brings in new possibilities for the transformation

Module 4: The Virtues as the Signs of Genuine Transformation (Points 8, 9, 1, and 2) With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (September 6)

From a depth approach, each Enneagram point, beyond being a type of person, represents particular qualities of presence. When these finer qualities of presence come to bear on our ego patterns and their inherent suffering, they create an alchemical reaction, the result of which are the nine Virtues.

The Virtues are thus the result of inner work, and become the natural expression and way of being for a person. They represent a strength and fullness of heart, as distinguished the human tendency to get caught in endless reactivity or numbness.

In actualizing not only our own type’s Virtue, but all nine, love becomes the organizing principle of your thoughts, decisions, relationships and communities.

The first big step in this spiritual alchemy is learning to be compassionate with ourselves. The presence we have cultivated supports us in being with the inner hurts and reactions that have driven so much of our behavior.

As we look deeper, we may notice that the core of suffering in our hearts was created by a deep disconnection from Source, however we choose to define that. We discover how much of our ego’s motivation has been seeking ways to handle this core of suffering and to be able to get on with our lives despite it.

But if we keep looking, we see again and again, that as soon as we come home to ourselves and the living moment, real healing occurs. Our spirits can flower, and our capacity to be a vehicle of love and truth in each moment becomes REAL, sustainable and embodied.

You’ll discover:

  • The specific relationship between the heart’s suffering, and qualities of presence and grace
  • The alchemy of restored presence bringing about a turn of the heart towards it true source, the “Beloved.”
  • The Nine Virtues as doorways to another kind of human life and community — the alternative to fear as an organizing principle
  • How the Virtues reflect the qualities of a real teacher — the signs of someone who has actually been on the authentic journey of awakening
  • The core suffering of the heart that is at the root of the passion of lust
  • The real meaning of the passion of Sloth, which isn’t “laziness” but rather, habitual state of withdrawn attention, normal for egoic life
  • The core suffering of the heart that is at the root of the passion of Angry Resentment
  • The real meaning of the passion of Pride, often misunderstood, and a major challenge for those in helping professions

Module 5: Practicing Virtues Somatically, Emotionally, Cognitively & Spiritually
An Experiential Journey of Points 8, 9, 1, and 2 With Jessica Dibb (September 13)

Realization is awareness of a truth, and it does partially transform us. Actualization is a permanent and enduring state of transfiguring the body, heart, and mind. In this class, you’ll experience somatically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually, the virtues of points eight, nine, one and two.

Jessica will guide you to experience in all three centers, these heart qualities within you:

  • Innocence
  • Engagement
  • Serenity
  • Humility

Module 6: The Virtues as the Signs of Genuine Transformation (Points 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7)
With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (September 20)

We continue our journey, learning to bring Presence and Essence to our hearts, transforming them into the qualities of the awakened heart. In this module, we will focus on the virtues of point Three (authenticity) point Four (equanimity), point Five (non-attachment) point Six (courage), and point Seven (sobriety).

You’ll discover:

  • The core suffering of the heart that is at the root of the passion of Vanity, and its corresponding virtue of Authenticity
  • How to recognize and experience more deeply the qualities of Equanimity in your daily life, and how they are related to the passion of Envy
  • The real meaning of the passion of Avarice, which is generally not the withholding of knowledge, and how it opens to the Virtue of Non-Attachment
  • How to recognize and experience more deeply Courage in your daily life, and to learn how it is the result of the transformation of fear and anxiety.
  • The core suffering of the heart at the root of the passion of Gluttony, and its transformation into Sobriety — the great stillness and intelligent sensitivity of heart.

Module 7: Practicing Virtues Somatically, Emotionally, Cognitively and Spiritually
An Experiential Journey Through Points 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 With Jessica Dibb (October 4)

Now that we have discovered something of the qualities of the Virtues for points Three through Seven, Jessica will take us through a multi-textured experiential journey through these qualities. Practices will bring somatic, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual intelligence to bear on the Virtues of points Three, Four, Five, Six, and Seven, embracing all of ourselves from Essence, conception, gestation, birth, childhood, adulthood, now and the future as:

  • Authenticity
  • Equanimity
  • Non-attachment
  • Courage
  • Sobriety

Module 8: Awakened Mind and the Holy Ideas Perceiving Reality from the Non-Dual Perspectives of Points 8, 9, 1, and 2 With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (October 11)

Throughout the ages masters and teachers have talked about the potential of human beings to recognize and build a vehicle for higher consciousness within our body, heart and mind so that Essence can flow unimpeded through every aspect of our life, every breath.

The triadic intelligence of the Enneagram shows us how we can awaken, build and flower these dynamics by doing Inner Work with the awakened instinctual drives, the higher emotional capacities (the Virtues), and the higher intellect (the Holy Ideas). In the next four classes we will focus on the transformation of mind — from inner chatter boxes and dull states of consciousness, to bright, peaceful and spacious qualities of direct knowing. These qualities are referred to as the Holy Ideas, nine perspectives or vantage points of nondual awareness or of the Higher Intellectual Center, George Gurdjieff’s term for the Illumined Mind.

The Holy Ideas aren’t to be strived for; nor is there a finish line in this process. Yet, as we bring more presence to the habitual patterns of our thoughts and perceptions, alternative views of reality can empower us to open to a much broader range of understanding and response, softening rigid ego patterns, without rejecting them.

In Module 8, you’ll discover:

  • The definition and meaning of the Holy Ideas
  • The Holy Ideas relationship to the Virtues and the Essential Qualities or Gifts of each of the 9 types
  • How these deeper states of consciousness or nondual awareness relate to your usual mind and mental patterns, described in Enneagram teachings as the Fixation
  • The Holy Ideas of Enneagram points Eight through Two
  • The Law of Three from which you can discern ordinary knowing from growing awareness of the deeper qualities of Mind
  • Body-centered principles and techniques which support an opening to Higher Mind and help you live truly in the moment
  • The specific relationship between the mind’s ego fixation and the direct experience of unity of being

Module 9: Living from a Boundless Perspective: An Experiential Journey Through the Holy Ideas of Points 8 9, 1, and 2 With Jessica Dibb (October 18)

The Holy Ideas cannot be grasped in the usual ways that we understand things, and indeed they are an experience of Mind beyond our usual mental activities. They are not qualities, and not exactly any felt sense.

Yet without an ability to abide in our felt sense, they remain elusive. We come to understand that these qualities of Mind need to be experienced directly, and that all of our centers are needed for this to occur. In this module, Jessica will help us come to deeper realizations and experiences of these perspectives.

In this class, we will bring somatic, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual practices to support the realization of this non-dual ground of our consciousness, embracing all of ourselves from Essence, conception, gestation, birth, childhood, adulthood, now and the future.

We will explore presence from the perspectives of:

  • Holy Truth
  • Holy Love
  • Holy Perfection
  • Holy Will
  • Holy Freedom

Module 10: Awakened Mind and the Holy Ideas: Perceiving Reality from the Various Non-Dual Perspectives of Points 3, 4,5, 6, and 7 (November 1)

In this class, we’ll continue our exploration of the Holy Ideas, discovering the non-dual perspectives of points 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

We will explore presence from the perspectives of:

  • Holy Hope & Holy Harmony
  • Holy Origin
  • Holy Omniscience & Holy Transparency
  • Holy Faith
  • Holy Plan & Holy Wisdom

Module 11: Living from a Boundless Perspective An Experiential Journey Through the Holy Ideas of Points 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 With Jessica Dibb (November 8)

At some point, it becomes clear that the Holy Ideas cannot be grasped in the usual ways that we understand things, and indeed they are an experience of Mind beyond our usual mental activities. They are not qualities, and not exactly any felt sense. Yet without an ability to abide in our felt sense, they remain elusive. We come to understand that these qualities of Mind need to be experienced directly, and that all of our centers are needed for this to occur. In this module, Jessica will help us come to deeper realizations and experiences of these perspectives. We will bring somatic, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual practices to support the realization of this non-dual ground of our consciousness, embracing all of ourselves from Essence, conception, gestation, birth, childhood, adulthood, now and the future.

We will explore presence from the perspectives of:

  • Holy Hope, Harmony, and Law
  • Holy Origin
  • Holy Omniscience & Transparency
  • Holy Faith
  • Holy Plan & Wisdom

Module 12: From Relationship Structures to Shared Presence With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (November 15)

We’ve spent many weeks opening pathways to the true depth of what we are, practicing embodying presence and integrating its many qualities into our lived lives. We have of necessity focused on our own internal work as a necessary foundation for this development.

However, if we truly want to live from our essential being, we must learn to stay present with other people — which for many of us is a more challenging journey.

Most of us may be able to stay awake and focused in meditation or other solitary spiritual practices, but quickly revert to our egoic patterns when other people are around or when we need to accomplish tasks with them. So we need to understand and experience presence and radical relatedness with others.

This relatedness is alive and ever-changing. We encounter ourselves, others, and reality freshly moment by moment, and it is in the immediacy of this encounter that we gain much greater freedom from our egoic patterns, but also come to a deeper love and appreciation for our lives and for the people in them.

In this module we will:

  • Learn to recognize some of the psychological patterns that tend to dominate our relationships
  • Come to recognize and appreciate relationship as a structure — necessary for life, but not able to bring the heart what it truly seeks
  • Work through some of the patterns to open to new qualities of genuine relatedness: appreciation, aliveness, and kindness
  • Explore the feeling of relatedness through experiential practices
  • Learn how relatedness can become a powerful tool in maintaining our inner work and development

Module 13: Relationship as the Root of Ego AND the Doorway to Awakening With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (November 29)

If we take in the learning from the previous module, we can see the disparity between our persistent relationship patterns and the actual experience a true relatedness. The Enneagram teachings offer a uniquely effective way of recognizing and holding these patterns with compassion. For most of us, each significant encounter has been a way of keeping our ego self intact and unaffected.

We may even be drawn to people with whom we can continue to play out these patterns as a way of keeping our familiar self going, even when it causes us great suffering. Thus, working with them can be a fast track for awakening to a new Self. As we are liberated from our historic identity systems, we are more able to listen, to share, to love, and to show up authentically for others and for ourselves.

In this class, you will:

  • Explore more deeply the psychological patterns which shape your historic self concept and relationship needs, working with temperament and type reactivities
  • Review some of our key relationships to understand how these patterns play themselves out in our personal lives
  • Experience how the sensations and energy flows in your body when these patterns are relaxed
  • Welcome what arises in the heart when these patterns are relaxed
  • Notice what opens in our orientation, perspectives, and thoughts about self and others, when these patterns are relaxed
  • Work on a current important relationship, seeing the patterns we are bringing to it, and considering what might happen if we were free from those patterns with that person
  • Recognize that in the journey into union, the usual sense of self AND the usual sense of other dissolves. If we truly realize oneness, what is relationship?

Module 14: The Divine is Everything: From Poverty to Treasure in our contact with the Divine (Part 1)
With Jessica Dibb & Guest Teacher Cynthia Bourgeault (December 6)

Something is more vast, more intelligent, more capacious than our individual sense of self and life. It is the Divine, God, Goddess, Source, the All that is. Whatever one may call it, our quest to be in contact it is limited by the blind spots of our personalities. The Enneagram offer us an immediate way of seeing and exploring the ways we have avoided contact Divine, as well as how the personality devalues certain expressions of it. The Enneagram invites us to immerse ourselves in the many qualities which are reflections of the Divine and that contribute to our wholeness.

From our fear, and the defenses and lenses of our unexamined personality reactions, we will have a poverty stricken relationship with the Divine. However, from the examined personality and through the cultivation of Presence in our bodies, hearts and minds, we become more receptive and available to the fullness of God.

In this class, Cynthia Bourgeault will join Jessica Dibb to guide you in a deep exploration of the Divine and the ways it is reflected in each of the nine types.

You’ll discover:

  • How the Enneagram invites us to a more whole relationship with the Divine, including the Law of One, Three and Seven
  • How the Enneagram invites us to a more whole relationship with the Divine, including the Law of One, Three and Seven
  • How each Enneagram point is an expression of Essence and an aspect of the Divine, and how it invites us to see and release our egoic perceptions of the Divine.
  • How Point 8 is a reflection of the Divine
  • How Point 9 is a reflection of the Divine
  • How Point 1 is a reflection of the Divine

Cynthia Bourgeault is a modern-day mystic, teacher and Episcopal priest, and the internationally renowned author of The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind, The Heart of Centering Prayer: Nondual Christianity in Theory and Practice, and The Meaning of Mary Magdalene: Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity.

Module 15: The Divine is Everything: From Poverty to Treasure in Our Contact with God (Part 2) With Jessica Dibb & Guest Teacher Cynthia Bourgeault (December 13)

In our work with the Enneagram, we can come to sense, love and know the Divine with its infinite faces, expressions, qualities and possibilities. In this class, Cynthia and Jessica further illuminate the ultimate purpose of the Enneagram: To restore us to our intimate contact with Source and learn to live from this Truth.

You’ll be guided to explore and open to the ways in which:

  • Point 2 is a reflection of the Divine
  • Point 3 is a reflection of the Divine
  • Point 4 is a reflection of the Divine
  • Point 5 is a reflection of the Divine
  • Point 6 is a reflection of the Divine
  • Point 7 is a reflection of the Divine

Module 16: As Above, So Below, As Inner Work, So Outer Work With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (December 27)

Anyone sincerely being transformed by this work will be engaged in a process of dissolving their usual polarities. We stop rejecting parts of ourselves and our world, and begin seeing, loving, and experiencing the unitive nature of reality.

Perhaps more than ever, we appreciate the value of the differentiated ways of being and the diverse intelligences of people, creatures. We can now contextualize the situations we find ourselves in, relating to them to the richness of a new reality.

Similarly, the usual pull between inner and outer work softens and begins to dissolve. We see that our inner work requires heartfelt commitment and collaboration with others, as well as a growing awareness that our soul matures in proportion to our sense of service.

The Enneagram offers real tools for collective creativity, functioning, wisdom, and guidance.

  • Where this is going and what do I really want my inner work to be serving?
  • What roles am I called to play as I awaken to my gifts?
  • What happens as I see more of the vast potential in the people around me?
  • An understanding of the power and applications of Gurdjieff’s First, Second and Third Line of Work
  • An exploration of the Sufi practices of listening and dialogue
  • An exercise to contact your calling in the world, and practice “harmonically” so you can support its impact.

Module 17: Depth, Breadth, Height, Everything, and Nothing at All An Extended Q&A session With Russ Hudson & Jessica Dibb (January 3)

This course is very comprehensive and Jessica and Russ, sincerely hope that Love, Wisdom, Presence and Essence have had their way with you, and taught you many things, as well as created pathways in you that are unique to your life and manifestation.

In this final session, we’ll spend the whole 90 minutes in dialog with the class about the healings, insights, transformations and emergent surprises that have happened for you.

Russ and Jessica will listen, reflect back and offer any guidance, experience and wisdom that may flow through them. This last class together will be a celebration and experience of our collective growth.

The Experiential Depth Approach Bonus Collection

In addition to the transformational 17-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions with leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions complement the course — and promise to take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.

Actualizing Deep Dyadic Love for Couples Through the Enneagram
Audio Recording With Jessica Dibb and Guest Couples

This original audio features several couples explaining how learning about their own type and the their partner’s type transformed their relationships, overcame seemingly intractable issues and brought an enhanced level of communication and co-creativity.

In Their Own Voices: The Types Speak
Audio Recording From Jessica Dibb and Voices of the Enneagram

In this original audio recording, two people of each Enneagram type share what has been the the most powerful transformational impact for their lives because of working with the Enneagram. Listening to the voices of that type using their own language to describe significant change brings us a visceral sense of the journey of that type.

The Enneagram & Purpose
Audio Dialogue With Russ Hudson and Robert Holden

One of the most important elements of a human life, and one which is often addressed in coaching and counseling, is the issue of purpose. In this audio dialogue, Robert Holden and Russ Hudson will explore the sense of purpose and meaning using the perspectives of the nine Enneagram points to illuminate different aspects of it. So rather than simply saying for example, “Type Eight gets a sense of purpose by X,” they will look at what the deeper teachings around Point Eight tell us about finding our own sense of purpose. What energetic part does each type play? Robert and Russ are old friends, and approach the work with camaraderie, humor and gentleness.

Robert Holden teaches a powerful Leadership & the Enneagram program for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Dove and the Real Beauty campaign, Unilever, IBM and Google. His work has been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, a PBS special Shift Happens! and in two major BBC documentaries. He’s the author of Happiness NOW!, Shift Happens!, Authentic Success, Be Happy, Loveability and Holy Shift!: 365 Daily Meditations from A Course in Miracles. His latest book is Life Loves You co-written with Louise Hay, and he hosts a weekly show on Hay House Radio called Shift Happens!

Can the Diversity of the Enneagram Support Diversity Wellness in the World?
Audio Dialogue Hosted by Jessica Dibb
With Rev. Dr. Shelley D. Best, Alex Senegal, Chief Mike Alexander, Deborah Threadgill Egerton, PhD & Tracy Cooper

This very special session is a 90-minute panel of five inspiring African American leaders, coming together with Jessica to discuss pivotal, important, tender, painful, and transformative issues facing people of color using the Enneagram in underserved environments, as well as confronting head on the issues people of color encounter in interfacing with the current professional Enneagram community. This is a deeply welcomed conversation because many in the Enneagram field have felt the poverty of lack of representation of people of color in the professional community. This is an authentic, raw, and unplugged conversation amongst six people who are speaking from radical love and listening.

“Made me realize I can be loved for myself, not for the things I do”

This course has been a great help to fill in the gaps of my understanding of the Self. I have become more aware of my people pleasing tendencies as I move through the day, and can decide when it is appropriate and when my help is not needed. This has made me realize I can be loved for myself, not for the things I do.
— Audrey, Iowa

“Russ goes straight to the core of Enneagram wisdom”

Russ goes straight to the core of Enneagram wisdom. His understanding of how and why ego defends the original experience of suffering is liberating and hopeful. He speaks and writes in a style both down-to-earth and exquisitely sensitive.

“Greatly expanded my compassion for humankind”

The emphasis on understanding and experiencing each of the types within myself greatly expanded my compassion for humankind, and especially for people in my life with whom I have had difficulty, such as my parents and siblings.

More Praise for Russ and Jessica...

“Puzzles I’d been pondering for years... were resolved...”

With Jessica and Russ’ expert holding of the space, 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...
— Ann Kirby, RH Certified Teacher, EnnCourage, Inc.

“A compassionate, warm-hearted, and steady stance...”

Jessica Dibb brings to the work of personal development a compassionate, warm-hearted, and steady stance that makes it possible for her to benefit us with her deep knowledge and moving and life enhancing experiential exercises. Her insight and awareness also foster her outstanding work. You can count on Jessica to contribute significantly to your life and wellbeing. I recommend her without reservation.
David Daniels, MD, Co-founder of The Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT)

“Patience, humor, and wisdom...”

Russ is an extremely gifted teacher. With patience, humor, and wisdom, he is able to guide us to places that are normally too defended to see or admit. This course definitely had that effect on me... I’m grateful to you, Russ, and to The Shift Network who have made it their mission to create opportunities such as these for as many as possible.
— Scott, Madison, Wisconsin

“I came away more aware...”

[Jessica is] a passionate and knowledgeable teacher of the many benefits that the Enneagram can have in our daily lives. I came away more aware of how knowing my type can help me live a better life, but more importantly, how knowledge of all the types can lead to deep personal fulfilment.
— Sally, England

“In his presence something pure inside gets awakened”

Russ is a master, in the Enneagram and in heartfelt understanding, respect, and kindness to fellow beings... In his presence something pure inside gets awakened.
— Sajili, Mumbai, India

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device or telephone. If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own connection. We use Zoom videoconferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes.

There is no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. Please note that dialing Zoom from your telephone is a toll call; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. International access numbers are available.

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
