Big Group Meetings

This group is where the main teachings of the Diamond Approach are presented. A unique element of DA teachings is the inclusion of specifically designed, experiential exercises that encourage students to explore and investigate the teachings truth for themselves. Meetings usually end with time for group sharing of personal experiences from the exercises, along with questions and comments.

The Diamond Approach is a dynamic, evolving teaching that leads to openness, freedom, and realization of the many dimensions of our human potential—especially the amazing secrets of our spiritual nature. There are no beliefs to accept or ideology to embrace—you simply need a sincere desire to know what is true about yourself. Combining time-honored spiritual practices with modern psychological understanding, our methods help you skillfully penetrate obscurations to your inner richness and luminous depth.

DH10 Big Group Meetings are open to all those truly interested in joining this local Diamond Approach group. No prior experience is needed to register. New people may attend 1-2 Big Group meetings before applying and committing to the group. For accepted members, these Big Group Meetings are required.

Joy of Being: an experiential weekend on the Essential Aspect of Joy

January 26-27, 2019 (Saturday & Sunday)
Teachers: Bob Duchmann, Johanna Holloman and Hameed Ali
Daily Schedule: 10am – 6pm
Cost: $175

Our lives are often full of strife. We try so hard to be someone, constantly endeavoring to find happiness through our achievements, possessions and relationships. In the Diamond Approach, the point of our inner work is to be free and capable of living a joyous inner and outer life, regardless of circumstances. The joy of Being is our nature and one of the signposts of realization!

During this January weekend we will offer teachings, practices and experiential exercises to explore the true source of joy and happiness and learn what restricts our hearts’ lightness, spontaneity and bliss.

All are invited to join DH10 teachers Bob Duchmann, Johanna Holloman and Hameed Ali, the founder of the Diamond Approach, as we explore this playful and lighthearted essential aspect or our authentic nature so necessary for the spiritual path.

CADH10 continues to present the cumulative series of the Diamond Approach teachings throughout the 2019 schedule. Each weekend or daylong will present a fundamental element of the Diamond Approach cosmology including its methods and practices.
