The Inner Turn

More than ever before, information about the Enneagram is widely available. Newcomers, while initially excited by what the system can reveal, often become discouraged by the plethora of conflicting theories to be found on social media platforms. Experience shows that many of these theories can be useful, but only if we learn certain ways to orient ourselves to the [...]

Why Personality Cannot Work on Personality: Teaching from Beyond our Fixation

Social media and other internet platforms have been rapidly spreading the Enneagram teachings in an unprecedented way. As a result, more people than ever are getting access to information about the nine types and different Enneagram theories. What is often lacking, and perhaps difficult to convey through these media, is the original orientation toward the material--learning the internal references [...]

The Arising of Conscience: The Enneagram and the Turning of the Heart

It is widely known in spiritual work that genuine transformation is a transformation of the heart. Yet, the traditional teachings behind the Enneagram make it clear that this can only happen through an awakening in the body and in the mind as well. It takes most of us a while to really understand what the centers are in our [...]

Knowing Better: Bringing Discernment, Logic, and Science to the Path

[NO RECORDING] The great spiritual traditions, philosophy, and science all share a deep understanding that the human mind is both marvelous and susceptible to illusion. Recognizing this, all three cultivate and employ practices, tools, and methods intended to help us avoid a variety of hidden processes which get in the way of clear, accurate, and receptive understanding. The Enneagram [...]

Beyond Personality Typing – The Bigger Context of the Enneagram Teachings

The Enneagram typology has been around long enough now that a significant number of people are aware of its power to illuminate important elements of our character structure. Some then go a step further and learn the basic principles of self-observation upon which all real Enneagram work depends. We learn more about the real function of the Centers, how [...]

Invitation to Experience Reality

In its original form, the Enneagram symbol was more than a typology--it was an invitation to experience reality in new ways. The symbol itself has at its center a triangle in a circle, representing what Georges Gurdjieff called the Law of Three--a way of looking at the paradoxes and polarities of life, and understanding them as the engine of [...]

The Bigger Context: The Enneagram Roots and Teachings from the Fourth Way

While knowledge of the types has tended to be the central focus of the modern Enneagram, sincere students also learn that the Enneagram symbol has an incredibly rich and profound background. This session will focus on some of the broader and deeper frameworks of the Enneagram found in a number of ancient sources which all point to our consciousness [...]

Authentic Presence: Working Effectively Embodiment and the Three Instincts

The Enneagram was originally taught as part of an integrated system of ideas and practices explicitly aimed at genuine transformation and living in presence--not just typing. But what do we mean by "presence"? What actually has led to transformation with this work? Gurdjieff taught that we cannot be present without being awake and alive in our bodies, and that [...]

Embracing Our Shadow: How the Enneagram can Liberate Us or Limit Us

[NO RECORDING] Carl Jung taught us that by fully embracing the shadow in ourselves or in a situation we can liberate the energy that is imprisoned in the disowned parts of us. Doing this creates a more energized, actualized, and integrated self or situation. As individuals who care about our personal lives, as professionals who want to have meaningful [...]

From Personal Greed to Essential Generosity: The Journey through the Shadow of Inner Emptiness

How do our type structures and the associated drives for security, well-being, and love and the corresponding aversive emotions of fear, anger, and shame / distress play out in greed? What is required to lessen greed / selfishness and create true generosity? How might presence and love remedy this inner hunger? In this workshop, we will explore together how [...]

The Enneagram as Nine Paths

Most of us initially encounter the Enneagram as a typing system--a way of recognizing the principal characteristics in ourselves and others. But if we continue to study this work, we come to understand that the Enneagram is actually a system to support us in coming back to ourselves in the living moment: "to remember ourselves" as Gurdjieff put it.

Satsang/ A Conversation with Don Riso and Russ Hudson

[NO RECORDING] The word "satsang" comes from the Sanskrit for "sat," which means "highest truth" and "sanga," which means "company / community." Thus, at its simplest, a satsang is a gathering of people who are Seekers of Truth working with the guidance of a teacher who has had a direct experience of True Nature. Through most of history, satsangs [...]
