Transformation Through Insight: Enneatypes in Clinical Practice
The same is true of you as a healing practitioner: Your type strongly influences your perceptions of your clients and what you tend to focus on. Understanding how Enneagram types affect the transformational work you do enables you to engage your clients more effectively. The latest research on therapeutic relationships shows that the healing method or approach is often less important than the trust, respect and love that is created. In other words, the quality of the relationship trumps the method. Because the Enneagram complements any transformational or therapeutic approach — while allowing you deeper insight into the dynamics — it can help to deepen and build trust with your clients.
You become more self-aware and more aware of their patterns, which leads to powerful breakthroughs and sustainable results. Ultimately, the Enneagram is not about putting you into a box, but rather accessing and integrating the full spectrum of your being in a practical way. It can expand your ability to transform unconscious habits of body, heart and mind, while accelerating personal growth and spiritual liberation. Russ Hudson is co-founder of The Enneagram Institute, and is one of the principal scholars and innovative thinkers in the Enneagram world today.
Russ has been co-teaching the Enneagram Professional Training Programs since , and is a founding director and former vice-president of the International Enneagram Association.

David, Helen, Russ, and Jessica will share the journey that brought them to discovering the Enneagram, why they value it, and why they are participating in this course.
You will then explore definitions of core principles and dynamics of the Enneagram, including the following core concepts that apply to each type:. Type eights are often described as protectors or challengers. At their best they show us how much vibrancy and power there is in each moment, and yet those qualities in eights and each one of us can become distorted, causing us to be dominating and insensitive. Understanding type eight opens pathways to discovering real inner strength and open-heartedness, helping you to navigate the challenges of your life without shutting yourself down.

Type nines are often described as peacemakers or mediators. At their best they show you how to harmonize with everything and how to relax into reality, and yet those qualities in nines and each one of us can become distorted, causing us to be disconnected and passive. Understanding type nine opens pathways to discovering a true inner peace, that fosters a more expanded capacity to flow with, and take action in, reality as needed. Type ones are often described as perfectionists or reformers.
At their best they show the importance and sacredness of everything and every moment, and yet those qualities in ones and each one of us can become distorted, causing us to be rigid and judgemental. Understanding type one opens alignment with a sense of the basic goodness in each moment, making it more possible for us to see the right action in every moment without attachment or aversion. Type twos are often described as givers or helpers. At their best they show us the beauty and healing power of responding to needs arising from suffering or wholeness, and yet these qualities in twos and each one of us can become distorted, causing us to be co-dependent and self-sacrificing.
Understanding type two helps you feel a well-spring of natural desire to support and care for your life, relationships, and the journeys of others. Type threes are often called the performer or the achiever.

- By-Tor and the Snow Dog;
- Lethal Refuge.
At their best they show that it is possible to fully develop your capacities, and yet those qualities in threes and in each of us can become distorted, causing emotional disconnection and vanity. Understanding type three supports you to cultivate the full measure of your intrinsic gifts and potential, as well as create a balanced love of self and others. Type fours are often called individualists or romantics. At their best they show that creative and authentic self-expression can lead to deep intimacy with ourselves, others and life, and yet these qualities in fours and each of us can become distorted, causing us to be moody and envious.
Understanding type four helps you open to your most intimate and true identity, and to experience that as a key to a beautiful and deeply meaningful life. Type fives are often described as investigators or observers. At their best they show the power of clarity and insight to illuminate life and come to deep truths, and yet those qualities can become distorted in fives causing them to be withholding and emotionally detached. Understanding fives opens you to a world of curiosity and wonder, making it possible for you to perceive reality more clearly.
Type sixes are often described as loyalists or loyal skeptics. At their best, they show how commitment and trust for life and others cultivates problem-solving skills and intuition that contribute to life, and yet these qualities can become distorted in sixes and in all of us, causing us to be doubting and paranoid. Understanding sixes can help open a doorway to your intuition and to a faith that your natural instincts will lead to actions that create harmony. You will see how body, heart and mind can align with deeper knowing, and cooperate with others toward goals that can transcend your immediate personal interests.
Type sevens are often described as enthusiasts or epicures. At their best they show how flow and natural positivity open up beneficial possibilities and bring joy to life, and yet these qualities can become distorted in sevens and in all of us, causing us to be escapist and distracted. Understanding sevens supports your natural desire to abide in causeless happiness, and to open to new experiences and vistas in your life.

This is a very proven, traditional and tested tool for both the "conversion of morals," and the "discernment of spirits," which St. Paul calls one of the major Gifts of the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians This workshop turned out to be the most important thing I ever did for myself. It left me with an incredible sense of wholeness and peace of mind. The Enneagram work of Russ Hudson and the psycho-spiritual healing and growth work of Jessica Dibb blended together into an awesome, fully integrated whole. The two presenters cued off one another seamlessly. For me, the excitement of the Enneagram is the possibility of tailoring our personal growth in directions that suit our personality type.
At last I understand why one size does not fit all. Russ and Jessica enabled the people at the workshop to understand and feel the energy of each of the personality types. We came to know what each type yearns for, to feel the part inside ourselves that has this same yearning, and to experiment with ways of moving the ego aside — so that we can function in the present, maximize our potential and integrate the nine facets into a unified whole. In the end, the beauty of the Enneagram is its simplicity.
I am a long-time student and certified teacher of the Enneagram, as well as seasoned meditator.
