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.

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.

Unveiling | The Enneagram and Shadow Work with Russ Hudson

The Enneagram Shadow Work, Russ Hudson, Bangkok May 2019

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.

 

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 and Shadow Work with Russ Hudson 2019 Asia

Unveiling | The Enneagram of Shadow Work
3 to 5 May 2019
Bangkok, Thailand

In this workshop, we will look at each of the nine points of the Enneagram as a study of the light and shadow in all of us—how each of the types is also a map guiding us through a transformational journey. We will learn how each type teaches us something about meeting 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 explore how these teachings from the ancient wisdom traditions can become totally relevant in our busy, modern world, and we will explore new ways of experiencing community with others.

Russ Hudson 2019 | The Enneagram of Shadow and Virtues

Enneagram of Shadow and Virtues, The Heart Retreat, Russ Hudson, Jason Stern, May 2019

The Enneagram is a useful framework for understanding who we are and what we are doing here. Rather than being just a tool that boxes us in, it takes us on a journey of revelation and transformation. The Enneagram helps us to understand our challenges and realise our full potential. It shows us a better way of being.

The Enneagram unveils our shadow (Bangkok 3-5 May 2019) and helps us heal our woundedness. We learn how our woundedness is a useful part of our journey to revealing our Virtues (Taiwan 10-11 May 2019), the best of who we can be. The Heart Retreat (Taiwan 5 -19 May 2019) helps us to embody and deepen the truth of who we really are.

This series of workshops are designed for those who are interested in understanding our true nature and journeying to the realisation of the deeper depths and the higher heights of who we really are. They are useful for individuals interested in personal growth, such as  coaches, leaders, teachers and parents. Knowing the Enneagram or having done prior workshops is not a prerequisite. Having some prior knowledge of the Enneagram could be an advantage to some, and a hindrance to others.  Listen to Russ Hudson on the Enneagram Types here.

In Conversation with Russ Hudson

Russ Hudson is one of the principal scholars, leading teachers and innovative thinkers in the Enneagram world today. Co-founder of The Enneagram Institute, he is the co-author of best-selling books The Wisdom of the Enneagram, Personality Types, Understanding the Enneagram and Discovering Your Personality Type.

Here we share a snippet of the conversation Siewfan Wong and Paul Chan had with Russ on shadow work. Siewfan and Paul are the organizers of The Enneagram of Shadow and Virtues with Russ Hudson in May 2019.

SW | What is Shadow?

RH | The shadow is a concept that is generally seen as coming from the psychologist Carl Jung, who was a student of Freud. Simply put, the shadow is any aspect of ourself that we’re not aware of. So the idea is that most human beings, we are aware of some things about ourself, but there’s other parts of ourself we don’t know very well. Those could be certain feelings that are suppressed, or it could be motivations that we’re not aware of. Really, the parts of us that we’re not familiar with.

Sometimes, shadow is created by difficult childhood experiences. Painful emotions, or times where we were very scared or shocked, and so we can psychologically repress those kinds of experiences, but they are still influencing us. And you can know when that kind of shadow material is coming up because it can make us do impulsive things that we would not otherwise do, kind of hard to explain.

But you know, shadow material can also be positive things. Some people aren’t necessarily aware that they are happier or their life is better than they think it is.

So basically, most serious psychology, and I see the Enneagram as involved with serious psychology, is in some sense an investigation of shadow material. What about me do I not know about? If I already knew about it then, well, I could do something about it. But the Enneagram helps us see the parts of us that we don’t usually recognise, especially in the areas of motivation as I was saying.

PC | Many people talk about shadow work in psychology. How does the enneagram help?

RH | Well, it’s part of why, I think, the Enneagram is more effective but also not as popular as some tools because the Enneagram really is explicitly looking at shadow work.

When we talk about the passion of each type [of the Enneagram] related to the sins in terms of the Christian view of it, you know, envy and avarice and pride and gluttony and all these kinds of things, or the fixated view, the Enneagram is really helping us see both emotions or motivations that we’re not aware of, but also it’s helping us see how our perspective on ourselves and life is more limited than we would usually recognise.

When we have shadow material going on, we don’t know that our view is limited. And you know most of the time, for most human beings, our view is limited somewhat.

The Enneagram is helping us see how we’re limiting it. It’s helping us see some of the underlying emotions that we might be feeling or have covered over in some way. It’s helping us see motivations we might not initially recognise that we have. Things like working very hard for success because we want our parents to love us and approve of us. Probably when we’re working we’re not conscious of that motivation. But if we were to look deeper we’ll see it’s there.

So the Enneagram helps us to see what we’re really after, what we’re seeking, and also points to maybe better ways to get the things that we’re looking for on the deepest level.
