Deepening | The Higher Mind Retreat with Russ Hudson, Deborah Rose Longo and Melanie Monsour

Inner Work Retreat | The Higher Mind, Russ Hudson, Nonthaburi May 2020

The Inner Work Retreat on The Higher Mind is a part of Asia Enneagram’s 2020 program with Russ Hudson. As in the May 2019 The Heart Retreat in Taiwan, the Gurdjieff Movements taught by Gurdjieff teachers in the 4th Way tradition will be an integral part of The Higher Mind retreat in May 2020.

This retreat will focus on the exploration of the mind’s real intelligence. We don’t need to be Types Five, Six or Seven to struggle with insecurities, fears and inner chatter that disconnect us from our inner guidance. We all benefit from understanding and connecting with the non-dual nature of the Higher Mind. Come and experience Presence in the head center through in-depth and embodied exploration of points Five, Six and Seven.

This work includes personal, embodied experience through which we will deepen our connection with the real intelligence and capacities of our Higher Mind. This will facilitate work on areas such as self-image, narcissism, defense mechanisms and how the fixated views of our personal history impact our present. Also featured are small group exercises, physical movement in the form of the Gurdjieff Movements, meditations and music.

Three master teachers lead us on the journey to the Higher Mind through grounding in the body. Russ Hudson will draw from the depth teachings of the original Enneagram. Deborah Rose Longo will lead us through the sacred geometry of the Enneagram through the Gurdjieff Movements. Melanie Monsour will accompany us on Piano with the sacred music of Gurdjieff and de Hartmann.

1 -3 May 2020, Unveiling | The Enneagram of Object Relations Workshop

Unveiling | The Enneagram of Object Relations with Russ Hudson

The Enneagram and Object Relations, Russ Hudson, Bangkok May 2020

The Enneagram has become popular across the world because of its power to help people understand themselves better. People explore the descriptions of the nine types and find out what fits them best. These descriptions serve as a wonderful starting point to deep dive into the Enneagram as a powerful transformative journey. Part of the Enneagram work is on our shadows, and part of our shadow work is Object Relations.

What is Object Relations?

Object Relations Theory explores the influence of early childhood relationships on personality development that give rise to 3 primary projected object relations – Attachment, Rejection, and Frustration. As adults, we may unconsciously project these object relations onto others such as our children, spouses, and colleagues. Object Relations is an important part of Shadow Work.

What is Shadow Work?

If we are to grow as human beings, we must see those parts of ourselves that create difficulties for us. We need to bring light to the parts of ourselves that are more hidden and yet have a big influence on our behavior. The psychologist Carl Jung called the process of finding these parts of ourselves “Shadow Work,” and as Russ Hudson points out, all psychological and spiritual growth entails shadow work. Read what Russ Hudson says about shadow work. At the same time, most of us are greatly helped by seeing what is good in us.

We need very much to recognise our best qualities, and to learn ways to support these qualities coming forth in our work and in our relationships. We might say that the cultivation of these qualities is part of the work of spirituality—learning to trust the good qualities in us and to live our lives more and more from compassion, awakeness and grounded presence. We need these qualities also to deal with our inner conflicts and difficulties. Without such awareness and support, that journey would be too overwhelming. The Enneagram work is really about bringing these good qualities to our inner shadows, so they can be transformed into something useful. Thus, the Enneagram is most helpful when it enables us to see the parts of ourselves that are left over from our childhood—the parts of us that are still hurt, afraid, ashamed, or angry. We learn to bring kindness and presence to these deeper layers of ourselves, and find healing and a new sense of purpose. – Russ Hudson

Unveiling | The Enneagram of Object Relations
1 to 3 May 2020
Bangkok, Thailand

In this workshop, we will look at each of the nine points of the Enneagram and how early childhood experiences create the ‘self-object’ and ‘other-object’, these form part of our shadow that unconsciously influences our adult relationships.

Studying each Enneagram Type guides us through a transformational journey regardless of our Type. We will learn how each type teaches us something about our Object Relations in our shadows, and opening them to the powerful light of grace, so we can be more free to bring good things to ourselves, our families, our work, and our world. The workshop will include teaching, exercises, music, meditation and discussion. We will discover how these teachings from ancient wisdom traditions are relevant in our busy, modern world. We will also explore new ways of experiencing community with others.

Deepening | The Heart Retreat with Russ Hudson, Deborah Rose Longo and Melanie Monsour

The Heart Retreat, Russ Hudson, Yilan May 2019

The Heart Retreat is part of a series of 2019 Enneagram workshops with Russ Hudson in Asia.

The focus of this retreat will be on deepening our understanding and use of the Enneagram for personal transformation, focusing on the deeper qualities of the heart. This work is not only for Types of the Heart Center. It will be an exploration of how we live from a deeper source of identity, no matter what our Enneagram Type is.

It will provide personal, hands-on experience through which we will deepen our connection with the real intelligence and capacities of our hearts. This will facilitate work on areas such as self-images, narcissism, defense mechanisms, and how events in our personal history impact our present. Also featured are exercises such as physical movement in the form of the Gurdjieff Movements, spiritual teachings, meditations, music and small group work.

Revealing | The Enneagram of Virtues with Russ Hudson

The Enneagram of Virtues Russ Hudson, Taipei, Taiwan, May 2019

The Virtues are an embodied expression of our true nature. This program introduces the 9 Virtues, “Qualities of the Awakened Heart”. The Virtue of each type can be seen as an antidote to the core pattern of suffering. Presence with the Virtues transforms suffering and brings us to a higher and fully actualized life.

This wisdom takes the Enneagram from being a system of labels and descriptions to a powerful journey of personal transformation. With experiential exercises and evolving insights, we will explore the interface between ego patterns and the integration of a deeper experience of the heart into our lives.
