The Enneagram Institute of Italy

The Enneagram Institute of Italy

I’m a member of the Enneagram Institute Network, certified and authorised by the Institute and its representative in Italy.


The Enneagram Institute is dedicated to the Work of human liberation and transformation. For thousands of years, spiritual teachers from many different traditions have reminded us of the richness of the human soul and its spiritual gifts. But without real self-knowledge, it is not possible to awaken to the deeper truths of the soul or to sustain whatever degree of realisation we have attained. One of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves is the Enneagram, an ancient symbol of unity and diversity, change and transformation.


The Enneagram Institute was founded in 1997 by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson to further their research and development of this remarkably insightful and useful approach to understanding human nature. Our main office is located in Stone Ridge, NY, as well as worldwide representation by Enneagram Institute Network Members. The Institute is engaged in presenting Workshops and Trainings in the Insight Approach® around the world, as well as publishing books, tests, audiotapes, and other materials to raise awareness of the Enneagram.

Institute Network

The Network has been created to develop and disseminate the Riso-Hudson Insight Approach® regionally and internationally, and to facilitate communication and cooperation between Riso-Hudson students. Network Members are Riso-Hudson invited certified students who have consistently demonstrated a high level of professional expertise, a commitment to the Insight Approach® as well as volunteering to put time, energy, and resources necessary to establish and maintain the Network.


Authorised Workshops

The Enneagram Institute is training qualified Riso-Hudson Certified students to teach the core Workshops so that these Workshops will be more widely available around the world. Thus, those attending anywhere—in Sydney, London, San Francisco, or Hong Kong, for example—will get the same content, exercises, and RH psycho-spiritual orientation.

The four Workshops that are being taught constitute a standardised curriculum and include:


Each Authorised Workshop is produced in affiliation with The Enneagram Institute, World Headquarters, and provides the same material that Don Riso or Russ Hudson would present themselves.
