Your Journey of Growth:

Working with the Dynamism and Levels of the Enneagram

with Roxanne Howe-Murphy and Ronna Phifer-Ritchie

through The Enneagram Institute of the San Francisco Bay Area



This retreat will be the last Riso-Hudson program offered by Roxanne Howe-Murphy and Ronna Phifer-Ritchie for a year.  

Among the first to be authorized by Don  Riso and Russ Hudson to teach this rare body of work, tadalafil we have been blessed to share it with countless seekers and witness profound shifts.

Now, doctor both Roxanne and Ronna are each immersed in a number of new projects, order including upcoming books.  Recently, we have come to realize that is necessary to take a sabbatical from some of our usual responsibilities, including teaching Riso-Hudson workshops, to make room for our emerging individual work. 

We’d love to have you join us for this last program before we begin our sabbaticals.

The Levels of Development LOD), one of the most profound contemporary contributions to the Enneagram field and identified by Don Riso and Russ Hudson, explains the vertical dimension to the personality types.

The Levels help us track our movement along a continuum toward more freedom, consciousness, expansiveness, and Being in the higher Levels (or toward more reactivity and self-destructiveness in the lower ones).

By introducing this “vertical axis” to the types, the Levels explain some of the most important things that we find in human nature—fluidity and change, resistance and conflict, freedom and compulsion—among many human qualities. Working with the Levels points us to where we are in our journey of growth, and guides us toward greater health and transformation.

In this retreat, you can expect to:

* Recognize the dynamics of the psychological and spiritual movement in your life that are explained through the Enneagram.
* Awaken to inner personal cues that guide you to higher levels of health.
* Experience a deep grounding in presence, through the teachings, exercises, music, and meditation.
* Work with the Enneagram in advanced ways that facilitate practical applications in your professional and personal life.

The Levels of Development bring extraordinary power to our inner journeys. The Riso-Hudson innovation is the only Enneagram work to be specifically endorsed by Ken Wilbur who has stated that only with this vertical dimension taken into account, does the Enneagram system move toward being a complete psychology.
