The Nine Domains and the Nine Journeys Don Riso and Russ Hudson (Very Popular at event)

In this all-day program, Don Riso and Russ Hudson, two of the leading teachers and developers of the Enneagram system in the world today, will present their ground-breaking material on The Nine Domains and The Nine Journeys. During the morning session, Don and Russ will be presenting their landmark new work on The Nine Domains. Over the years, Don and Russ have developed this concept as a holistic and systemic way of understanding the Enneagram. (Note: This conceptual work is not related to or derived from the “Nine Domains” teachings of Oscar Ichazo.) Instead of being simply a system of nine personality types, the Enneagram can be seen as a way of understanding and working with any complex, living system. The Nine Domains show us the “necessary and sufficient” components of any system from a conceptually higher point of view. This way of working with the Enneagram is, paradoxically, both practical and archetypal and leads to many new surprising applications. During the afternoon session, Russ and Don will reframe the nine personality types as “The Nine Journeys.” Beyond being a typology, the Enneagram is more profoundly a map of nine core themes that each individual must contend with on the way to true psychological and spiritual maturity. Each “type” can be seen as a metaphor for important life realizations, challenges, and opportunities, as well as an opening into real aspects of the totality of human consciousness. Each voyager is facilitated immeasurably by regarding his or her own inner landscape with insight, “right understanding,” and compassion. Russ and Don will discuss these nine themes while employing meditation, music, and short exercises to convey the sense of these journeys. This will not be an introduction to the nine types, but will be useful for anyone who is seriously engaged in inner work that is based in presence and the clarification of consciousness.
