Russ Hudson and Jessica Dibb
Wednesday, November 29, 2023
Learn about the gifts and challenges of the nine Enneagram types and embark on a path of fully authentic presence, communication, and engagement — so you can free your energy to focus on your life’s unique and essential contribution.
Discover the Enneagram as a powerful mirror into your own communication habits — and how they may be contributing to or impeding your sense of wholeness and effectiveness in relating to others.
What’s one quality that can increase your emotional availability and attentiveness when you’re with others, help you cultivate your capacity to receive and offer love...
... become more acutely focused when you’re working, and develop the strength to confront the challenges on our planet — all while keeping your heart wide open?
According to renowned Enneagram teachers Russ Hudson and Jessica Dibb, that quality is PRESENCE.
While many of us think of presence as a mood or state of mind that we step into, it’s actually a profoundly spiritual state of BE-ing that we can embody and continually renew.
Russ and Jessica describe the Enneagram, in part, as a quantum tool for presence.
When understood at its deepest level, it can help you establish communication that’s conscious, responsive (vs. reactive), and profoundly compassionate.
The Enneagram can help you move out of the box of your own idealized (or damaged) self-perception, so you can be fully engaged with your life and the people in it by relating in a fully authentic way.
When you join Jessica and Russ in their brand-new 7-week live video course, they’ll guide you through leading-edge material, newly developed transmission teachings, and practices...
... using the wisdom of the Enneagram to guide you into presence and wholeness — to awaken and embody three important aspects of a fully evolved life — authenticity, communication, and engagement.
How do the qualities of authenticity, communication, and engagement work together to address your longing and create a life of deep satisfaction, ease, presence, and purpose?
Every moment you’re fully authentic frees your energy to respond to each experience with the life force, love, and awareness that runs through us, is us, and is all things.
Authenticity is the ultimate fulfillment of your true nature and enables you to be embodied and take action in your life. It happens when you’re fully present, without fixation.
The Enneagram is unparalleled for precisely and compassionately unmasking fixated identities, showing you how your type produces a false form of authenticity, and illuminating pathways for non-fixated presence.
The Enneagram can also profoundly impact your personal relationships and help you support others in their growth and blossoming. Each type has a gift of communication that can invite authenticity in both yourself and others.
Through the wisdom of the Enneagram, you can shed some of the habitual, egoic preoccupations of your type and connect with others in a more fulfilling way. Your heart is then freed up to inhabit what truly matters to you.
With the rapid changes happening on our planet, now’s the time to engage and get involved with your authentic calling and the flowering of your purpose.
During this life-enhancing course, you’ll:
- Discern what real authenticity looks and feels like somatically, emotionally, and cognitively — through the lens of each of the 9 Enneagram types — and how you can reclaim those qualities
- Explore the different elements that each of the 9 Enneagram points reflect about authentic communication and engagement in the world — regardless of your type
- Learn the ways authenticity opens novel pathways of communication that support wellbeing, personal development, and creativity in engagement
- Be guided in experiential exercises in each session to feel how you embody the lessons of each type
- Find that each point on the Enneagram holds a powerful ingredient to your whole and authentic BE-ing
- Realize that being immersed in the luminosity of presence helps you release your energy from the burden of pretending or reactivity, so your innate gifts, your essential contribution, can start pouring forth from you
- Embrace the opportunity to open your heart and live in radiant awakened engagement with what matters to you most
- Experience what it might be like to live with more peace of mind knowing that you’re communicating in an understanding and compassionate way with your loved ones
- Understand that the more you are authentically who you are, the more your life, relationships, and engagement with the world will change
- And much more...
This program is designed to help you move away from presentation and into presence.
Your attention — which may have been geared toward serving your egoic agenda (or damaged sense of self) — can focus on your real gifts to illuminate yourself, those around you, and this ever-evolving world.
In each of the seven sessions, you’ll learn about one or two of the Enneagram types, and how they uniquely contribute a certain quality of authenticity.
Work with the false authenticity that tends to entrance us all, and have an experience of integrating all nine aspects of authenticity within yourself.
Explore the characteristic ways each type’s false authenticity blocks and distorts communication — and even harms the authenticity and growth of loved ones, friends, and colleagues...
... and practice all the ways the nine types can evoke whole and compassionate communication.
Once you’ve engaged in the inner work of revealing and polishing your authentic self, and practiced communicating in a way that honors wholeness and truth in your relationships...
... you’ll finally explore the nine gifts of engagement that can help you attune to your purpose and lead you on a luminous path of awakened involvement with what truly inspires and lights you up.
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks
In this 7-week transformational course, Russ and Jessica will guide you through fundamental skills and competencies to explore the communication gifts and challenges of the nine Enneagram types and embark on a path of fully authentic presence, communication, and engagement.

Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to free your energy for cultivating a truly authentic life and focusing on your unique and essential contribution — through the wisdom of the Enneagram and the gifts of the nine types.
Module 1: The Enneagram of Authenticity & Engagement — How to Become Fully Human & Embark on a Life-Giving Path (November 29)
Most of us long for a life that feels meaningful, purposeful, and actualized.
To make this a reality, we have to learn to communicate and engage with others authentically. When we do, we can grow within our relationships and support the growth of those around us.
Many people, however, didn’t have the opportunity to develop authentic communication and engagement, because we had to sacrifice, hide, or contort our true self — and build a false “authentic” self.
When we become painfully aware of this, we can then explore the nature of authenticity and authentic communication and engagement.
If we’re not completely authentic in our exploration, we’re taking this journey of self-inquiry with well-worn blinders.
This is where the Enneagram can support radical and precise, yet compassionate, deconstruction of the patterns we’ve come to believe are our authentic selves.
And, help us see and experience the somatic, emotional, and cognitive habits which have become unconscious.
This frees up the energy we’ve invested in our inauthentic presentations, so it can now flow into life-giving and truly authentic pathways.
In this opening module, you’ll learn:
- What authenticity is somatically, emotionally, and cognitively, and be guided in practices to open pathways for the embodiment of authenticity
- How the false sense of self dramatically impedes communication that supports wellbeing, personal development, and creativity in engagement with others and the world
- How authenticity opens novel pathways of communication that lead to conscious engagement for a creative and co-creative life
- The different elements that each of the 9 Enneagram points reflect about authentic communication and engagement in the world — regardless of your type — and how each type also shows us what happens when we fail to connect with our authentic core
Modules 2 through 6 will explore all 9 types of the Enneagram. For each one, you’ll discover:
- Each type’s particular fixated view — how they get psychologically stuck, and why
- How each type seeks to be authentic in a way that cannot ultimately work because the ego’s version of authenticity cannot be authentic
- What real authenticity looks and feels like through the lens of each type
- The qualities each type habitually generates in their communication that almost always invite inauthentic sharing from others — and the qualities they generate when they’re present, which elevates communication so it’s more effective and valuable for everyone’s wholeness and growth
- What kinds of communication styles best open authentic dialogue with each type
- Transmission teachings and experiential exercises to consider how the lessons of each type appear in each of us — and how the particular forms of both authentic and inauthentic communication show up
- How to reclaim the authentic expressions of each point
See below for dates and themes for each of these modules.
Module 2: Points 8 & 9 — Empowerment & Reconnection (December 6)
- Point 8: From Emotional Armor to Having a Voice — A Journey of Empowerment
- Point 9: From Disengagement to Active Participation — A Journey of Reconnection
Module 3: Points 1 & 2 — Integrity & Kindness (December 13)
- Point 1: From Rigid Opinions to Finding New Truth — A Journey of Integrity
- Point 2: From Seeking Closeness to Authentic Connection — A Journey of Kindness
Module 4: Points 3 & 4 — Truth & Intimacy (December 20)
- Point 3: From Image Management to Self Revelation — A Journey of Living Truth
- Point 4: From Self-Absorption to Sharing Our Depth — A Journey of Real Intimacy
Module 5: Points 5 & 6 — Inquiry & Courage (January 3)
- Point 5: From Repeating Information to Discovering New Truths — A Journey of Inquiry
- Point 6: From Fearful Assumptions & Planning to Recognizing the Way Forward — A Journey of Courage
Module 6: Point 7 — Appreciation & Integration (January 10)
- Point 7: From Restless Overthinking to Savoring the Realness of the Moment — A Journey of Appreciation
- The second portion of this session will be devoted to integrative practice and exercises: authentic breathing, somatic sensing of the 9 authentic energies, inquiry into our undiscovered pretenses, and inquiry into our natural state of authenticity
Module 7: Staying the Course — Integrating New Wisdom & Practices Into Your Authentic Life (January 17)
The more we are authentically what we are, the more our life, relationships, and engagement with the world will change.
Some of those changes may feel exhilarating and freeing; some of them may feel a little frightening. Integrating new wisdom into daily practice can raise feelings of vulnerability.
In this closing module, explore ways to stay the course.
Allow the somatic, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual transformations you’ve experienced in this course to integrate — through whatever uncertainties, confusion, fear, letting go, and embracing may follow.
This final session will offer:
- Guidance and practices for navigating those thrilling — yet sometimes harrowing — life experiences
- A review of what you’ve learned and methods for continually bringing your transformation into your life and relationships
- An extended Q&A to help integrate the impacts of this course into your life

“I have increased my compassion and kindness for those I am in relationship with, for humanity and also for myself...”
I am grateful to Russ, Jessica, and The Shift Network — along with all the teachers, coaches, facilitators, and students who have been part of this journey of transformation with the Enneagram. I have benefitted from being a part of this community and the focus on breath and breathing into all three centers along with a commitment to a daily practice. I have come to understand the great benefits that come from being able to be still and quieten the mind and come home to the sensation of the body and allow the heart to come online. I have increased my compassion and kindness for those I am in relationship with, for humanity, and also for myself as I come back to the breath on a regular basis — and I am very grateful for this.
— Christine Mohr, Queensland, Australia

The faculty was outstanding!

— Sandra, Bergamo, Italy
“A great experience!”
The course made me think about myself in ways I hadn’t done before and I got a lot out of that. I felt a lot of intimacy with everyone there, even though I talked to very few people. I think both Russ and Jessica have the quality of bringing you into yourself in a way that you feel that intimate space being shared with everyone that’s hearing the same talk. And it’s great for it to be live, because it’s not only hearing a talk, it’s also feeling and sensing what’s being said. A great experience!

More Praise for Russ Hudson And Jessica Dibb...
“... [Russ’] work has allowed me to live a more soul-directed life.”
Russ Hudson is a gifted teacher and wise scholar who offers some of the deepest and most comprehensive understanding of the transformative power of the Enneagram. By helping me become aware of the habitual patterns of thinking and acting that keep me a prisoner of my personality, his work has allowed me to live a more soul-directed life. The Enneagram is complex and multi-dimensional, and I always look forward to hearing more from Russ about the unfolding nature of his beautiful work.
— Cheryl Richardson, author of Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife
“Puzzles that I had 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.
“Jessica and the Inspiration process [are] an integral part of my spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical healing...”
Jessica and the Inspiration process were, and continue to be, an integral part of my spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical healing — with many tools to create safety and heighten awareness of self, of creator, and of interfaith connections. I am so blessed to have Jessica as a major teacher and mentor in my life. The people I have met through the many classes I have taken are exceptional spiritual warriors who have the power to create shalom, salaam, namaste, and peace in this world.
— Shoshana Shamberg
“Russ is a master...”
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
“Jessica Dibb is unique...”
Jessica Dibb is unique because she embraces an integrated, psychospiritual approach that proactively helps students become aware of their habits (and/or unconscious patterning) and provides multiple methodologies to help build their self-realization. These strategies range from exercise and movement to intimate dialogue, and from deconstructing core wounds to laugh therapy. It’s all grist for the mill of expanding consciousness, gracious and loving relational interdependence, and a spiritually expanded perspective.
— Pat Waddell
About Russ Hudson
Russ Hudson has established himself over the past three decades as one of the top teachers and developers of the Enneagram personality typology in the world today. Actively involved in the Enneagram community, Russ is co-founder and president emeritus of The Enneagram Institute, as well as a founding director and former vice president of the International Enneagram Association. He’s been writing and teaching full time with The Enneagram Institute since 1991.
Russ has co-authored five bestselling books with Don Richard Riso, including The Wisdom of the Enneagram and Personality Types. These books are widely considered to be not only groundbreaking contributions in the field of Enneagram studies, but also important contributions to the literature of psychological types. The pair developed a scientifically validated test instrument, the Riso-Hudson Type Indicator (RHETI), now considered a standard test in the Enneagram field. The RHETI has been used by numerous Fortune 500 companies.
Russ has a solid background in science, as well as in studies of philosophy and religion. He approaches his work with the Enneagram holding both perspectives. He originally encountered the Enneagram through The Gurdjieff Work and sees it as a map for personal development and awareness rather than merely as a system for categorizing people. He has emphasized the importance of cultivating presence and mindfulness as a foundation for authentic work with the Enneagram, and he has worked diligently to align the study of the Enneagram to spiritual practice, bringing their combined benefit into greater public awareness.
Russ has appeared on Good Morning America and The CBS Morning Show, as well as on several dozen radio and television shows, as an expert on personality types. He has become a popular speaker at conferences and retreat centers around the world, including the Esalen Institute, the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, and the Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND).
