Work Study - The Enneagram: Nine Journeys of Awakening

Nov 19 - Dec 17, 2017 Begins in 10 months
with Russ Hudson

"This program is a wide-ranging conversation about how the Enneagram and related inner work can be of use in the possibilities and challenges emerging in our time," Russ Hudson says. "Specifically, we will explore new ways of relating to one another based in an ongoing and dynamic awareness of our groundedness in presence and creativity. The first part of the program invites the group to a deep experience and appreciation of the higher aspects of the Enneagram (Essential Qualities, Virtues, and Holy Ideas).



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
