About Russ Hudson
Over the last three decades, Russ Hudson has established himself as one of the top teachers and developers of the Enneagram personality typology in the world today. He has been writing and teaching full-time with The Enneagram Institute as well as on his own since 1991 and has co-authored with Don Richard Riso five best-selling books on the subject, including The Wisdom of the Enneagram and Personality Types. These books are widely considered to be not only groundbreaking contributions in the field of Enneagram studies, but also important contributions to the literature of psychological type. They have been translated into British, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Dutch, Polish, Hungarian, Portuguese, and Japanese editions, and are the best-selling Enneagram books in their respective countries.
Beyond the books and teaching, Russ also worked for several years to develop a scientifically-validated test instrument, the Riso-Hudson Type Indicator (RHETI), now considered a standard test in the Enneagram field. The RHETI has been used by Fortune 500 companies including Amoco, AT&T, DuPont, Motorola, General Motors (Cadillac Division), Prudential Insurance, and SONY.
Actively involved in the Enneagram community, Russ is the co-founder of the Enneagram Institute as well as a Founding Director and former Vice-President of the International Enneagram Association—a global organization advancing knowledge of the subject.
He holds a degree in East Asian Studies from Columbia University in New York, from which he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
Russ has a solid background in science as well as in studies of philosophy and religion and has approached his work with the Enneagram holding both perspectives. He originally encountered the Enneagram through the Gurdjieff Work and sees it as a map for personal development and awareness more than as merely a system for categorizing people. He has emphasized the importance of cultivating presence and mindfulness as a foundation for authentic work with the Enneagram, and has worked to align the study of the Enneagram and spiritual practice and bring their mutual benefit into greater public awareness. He currently is a member of the Ridhwan School of A.H. Almaas and maintains his own daily prayer and meditation practice as a support for his work.
He has appeared on Good Morning America, and The CBS Morning Show, as well as on several dozen radio and television shows as an expert on personality type. He has become a popular speaker at conferences and retreat centers around the world including the Esalen Institute, the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, and the Science and Non-Duality Conference (SAND).
Besides his extensive work with the Enneagram, Russ is a scholar of East Asian culture and religion, and of the early developments of western religion and philosophy. He is also an avid student of popular culture (film, media, theater, art) and an accomplished musician. He has greatly enjoyed learning about different cultures and cuisines in his extensive travel around the world. He has been residing in New York City since 1980.
