Russ Hudson – Enneagram of the Higher Mind
In this 8-part transformational intensive, Russ will guide you through each of the nine Holy Ideas — sharing powerful, type-specific teachings to expedite your spiritual journey. You’ll receive video teachings, training sessions, and experiential practices. Each class builds harmoniously upon the previous ones so that you can fully integrate what you learn into daily life.
Transform Your Partterns & Fixations Through the 9 Holy Ideas
Recognize when you’re trapped by the mind and patterns of your type — and liberate yourself to experience new dimensions of reality.
Experience depth teachings and practices to integrate your ordinary mind, Higher Mind, heart, and body for balanced spiritual development.
The problem centers in the mind…
Until you can free yourself from the gripping power of your mind, you cannot experience true liberation. You will always be in a box that you don’t even realize you’re in.
Even with an understanding of your Enneagram type, and gaining insight into your personality patterns — habitual ways of thinking, feeling, and acting —you’re still bound by your mind.
These mental patterns (known as the fixation of each type) negatively influence your perceptions of yourself, others, and the world.
You may relate to this fixation as an internal chatterbox or “monkey” mind…
Russ Hudson, master Enneagram depth teacher, refers to the fixation as “the box you don’t even know you’re in…”
Yet, when you learn how to bring presence and awareness to your mental activities, you begin to liberate yourself from this box, and discover new perspectives of Higher Mind…
Higher Mind is the transformation from “inner chatter and dull states of consciousness, to bright, peaceful, and spacious qualities of presence,” Russ teaches.
These qualities are also referred to as the Holy Ideas of the Enneagram, nine perspectives or vantage points of nondual awareness.
The Holy Ideas are the antidote to the fixations… and your way out of the box.
For example, Holy Faith alleviates the paralyzing fear of point Six…
Holy Origin transforms the melancholy of point Four into a direct awareness of the beauty and mystery of life…
And the resentment of point One yields to the goodness inherent in nondual awareness…
While you may have experienced fleeting moments of these qualities of Higher Mind, the challenge is making them a part of your daily human experience.
This integration is what truly connects you with your essence, your soul, and others — to relate to life from your wholeness — rather than from mental constructs and emotional wounds.
Join Russ for a deep dive into the most under-taught — and least understood — aspect of the Enneagram, the Holy Ideas.
These core Enneagram teachings can help you break through the mental patterns and emotional traps of your personality — so that you can readily access powerful qualities of presence, nondual awareness, and freedom.

More About the Enneagram
A powerful tool for personal and collective transformation, the 9-pointed Enneagram symbol represents nine distinct strategies for relating to yourself, others, and the world. Each of these Enneagram types has a different pattern of thinking, feeling, and acting that arises from a deeper inner motivation and worldview.
These types or styles are not who you are, but show you the patterns that tend to dominate your experience.
The Enneagram illuminates nine ways we leave presence, nine ways we forget who we really are, nine unconscious patterns that can lead us away from all we truly care about — and also nine direct pathways to awakening back to your essential nature.
When you understand it in depth, the Enneagram reveals the inherent strengths or gifts that each type wants to bring to the world.
Each of these nine gifts is truly needed for human beings to evolve, and to create a world in which we can all thrive — personally and collectively.
