Explore the full scope of the Enneagram to illuminate your greatest wisdom, become your truest self, and face life’s challenges with fortitude and grace.
“Who am I, really?” It’s such a fundamental question of human existence that entire schools of philosophy, spirituality, and scientific pursuit have been founded to ponder it.
Of these, the Enneagram is one of the most robust and informative tools for investigating some of the deeper layers of the self, yet the full power of it is not always taught. Leading scholar Russ Hudson teaches, “Too often, the Enneagram is viewed as a set of simple personality types that lock us into fixed ideas about ourselves. In reality, it’s a dynamic tool for transformation.”
With The Enneagram: Nine Gateways to Presence, Hudson shares an in-depth audio training on how to use this powerful system the way it was originally intended - as a pathway to deeper self-knowledge and spiritual attunement. Rather than providing a simple explanatory guide to the Enneagram’s nine personality types (such as the achiever, the investigator, or the enthusiast), Hudson offers an in-depth training in the potential of the entire system. And when you understand the Enneagram as a whole, you will discover new avenues to emotional literacy, greater compassion, and the recognition of all life’s inherent gifts.
Here you will learn:
- Why attachment to a single personality type obscures the full purpose and potential of the Enneagram
- How to investigate and discern the purpose of lifelong survival strategies
- Each personality type’s polarities - from passions to virtues, fixations to holy ideas
- How the Enneagram reveals deeper truths about our interconnectedness
- What different levels of self-development look like for each personality type
- How to bring the experience and lessons of presence into everyday life
Including guided meditation sessions tailored for each personality type, The Enneagram is an invitation to think beyond self-made boundaries and gain insight into your ongoing challenges, greatest strengths, and highest path of growth.

Great for advanced Enneagram students
This is a masterclass on what may be called the spiritual dimension of the Enneagram. Russ demonstrates his depth of understanding of each type as an ego structure which when transcended allows us to reach higher states of consciousness.
Many gems inside. Accurately knowing your type (especially if you are the elusive 6 who has mistyped themselves) will take this material to an even deeper level.

I loved it! Russ Hudson takes the listener on a journey through the 9 types. With precision and compassion, he explains what it's like to be that type in a way that can be truly felt from the listeners point of view. Beautifully illustrated; a piece of Enneagram work that will stick around and teach others for ages.

A beautiful exposition of the enneagram
Russ Hudson generously shares his insights and observations from a life-time's experience of working with the enneagram so that his experience can benefit others. He never over-simplifies nor over-complicates, but rather lays out his material in a thoughtful, orderly but also humorous and human way. There are two metaphors that spring to mind - I could call it a feast, or a tapestry - you get the idea - it is a large, cohesive production where the details are beautiful and so is the over-all picture. It is rare for me to get all the way to the end of an audio-book - there have been a few stand-out ones where I have made the whole journey - and this is one of them. Nothing is extraneous. I'm pretty sure I will listen to it again and again.
