The Virtures and the Holy Ideas Don Riso and Russ Hudson

During this 2-hour talk, Don and Russ will talk about the Virtues and Holy Ideas to show participants how they are actually aspects of a unified vision of Reality. They will guide participants in discriminating between the various Virtues and Holy Ideas, bringing greater conceptual clarity and recognition of these qualities in their own lives. Participants will see that the Virtues and Holy Ideas are not actually far from their own experience—when we are present and awake in the moment, they arise naturally. Like so much else about the Enneagram, these "higher" aspects of the system actually reflect our personal experience and are understandable and accessible to everyone. Don Riso and Russ Hudson are both Founders of the IEA, and are a highly respected and influential teaching and writing team. Their five best-selling Enneagram books, including Personality Types (1987, 1996) and The Wisdom of the Enneagram (1999), have sold over a million copies and are regarded by many as indispensable sources in this growing field.
