Big Group Meetings

The main teachings of the Diamond Approach are presented in these meetings. A unique element of DA teachings is the inclusion of specifically designed, experiential exercises that encourage students to explore and investigate the teachings for themselves. Meetings conclude with 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 is currently open to those 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 meetings are required.

For any questions, please send an email to Gregory at cadh10@ridhwan.org.

DH10 Meeting: Loving Light

January 25-26, 2020 
Teachers: Hameed Ali, Johanna Holloman and Blanchefleur Macher
Daily Schedule: 10am – 6pm
Cost: $175
Registration Open to All (general public welcome)

During this weekend together we will explore a vast, powerful, yet gentle love. Often this dimension of our nature is experienced as an infinite presence of softness, sweetness and generosity. When we are open to feeling it directly, we feel lovingly held, as if cuddled in the unconditional loving arms of the universe. The more we experience this loving manifestation of Being, the more our sense of basic trust develops, which enables our soul to relax into the natural condition of our essential nature.

But usually our trust is limited or even seems absent because of all the many experiences of lack of attuned holding throughout our lives and particularly during our first year of life. Consequently, we tend to believe that all of existence is characterized by the lack of holding we experienced in childhood. Without understanding our personal unique history around feeling held by our environment it will be difficult for us to see how Being, which is the totality of all existence, can actually function to hold us.

During the weekend we will offer Diamond Approach teachings, practices and experiential exercises designed to explore the true source of wonder, power and mystery that is our deepest nature.

Everyone may register here.
