Is your personality running the show these days?

Do you need a vacation from your mental and emotional patterns?

If you’ve been around the spiritual block, you’ve likely worked with a personality typing system...

And, although you’ve probably gained insights into the aspects of your personality that are either blocking your growth or witnessed glimpses of your authentic Self...

You may feel as though your personality at times has too much power over your perceptions, life choices and relationships (in spite of years of working on being more centered and “spiritual”).

Finding out your Myers-Briggs or StrengthsFinder scores or discovering your type within the 9 points of the Enneagram can be extremely illuminating...

Yet, the Enneagram in particular offers a truly time-tested wisdom path for integrating and expressing your FULL potential as a spiritual and human being. Your unique gifts, blindspots, strengths and challenges.

And truly, you are MORE than your personality — even though you may wonder at times if there’s room for anything else...

One of the most skilled and beloved teachers of the Enneagram in the world today is Russ Hudson, co-author of The Wisdom of the Enneagram and co-founder of the Enneagram Institute.

In the short clip above, Russ illuminates the profound wisdom available to YOU through the Enneagram, using the Point 4 as an example.

As you’ll hear from Russ, our personalities are really only the pathway to the deeper, truer aspects of our being.

Through the “core wisdom teachings” of the Enneagram, you can gain more mastery over your patterns, opening you to the deeper qualities of your heart and mind...


Discover how to take your understanding of the challenges and gifts you bring to the world to a MUCH deeper level, during the Enneagram Global Summit, a FREE 5-day virtual event featuring teachers from diverse Enneagram schools — including Russ Hudson and more than 40 other leading teachers!

Join Russ and his colleagues to discover a fascinating spectrum of perspectives on the Enneagram...
