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.

Big Group Meetings are open to all and no prior experience is needed to register. Participants who have not yet applied to DH10, can attend up to 3 consecutive Big Group meetings. You need to be an accepted student to attend more than these 3 meetings. For accepted students, these Big Group Meetings are required.

For any questions, please send an email to Becky at

CADH10 Invites All to Experience Newly Forming Bay Area Group


The Way of the Warrior

December 1-2, 2018 (Saturday & Sunday)
Teachers: Karen Johnson, Mayuri Onerheim & Nancee Sobonya
Daily Schedule: 10-1 pm (lunch) 2:30-5:45 pm
Cost: $175

In this weekend, we will continue our exploration of our true nature and one expression of it- True will. We will discover what it means to contact the inner support, groundedness and solidity of our Being which enables us to persist and stay the course in our quest for truth.

Together we will explore how our nature arises as a true and unflappable will of a warrior and why our freedom depends on liberating ourselves from our personal histories that have contributed to our false ideas of what will is. We will explore how our will developed or didn’t, was broken or supported, and learn ways to align it with the intention you feel in your heart of seeking after truth. There is a natural true support that will help you to stride the inner journey with confidence. Come join us in the adventure.

The weekend teachings are supported by the Diamond Approach practices of inquiry, body sensing and meditations.

You are invited to join DH10 teachers Karen Johnson, co-founder of the Diamond Approach, Mayuri Onerheim and Nancee Sobonya.

CADH10 will continue the arc of teachings of the Diamond Approach over the balance of the 2019-year schedule, and each weekend or daylong will present a Diamond Approach methodology.

Each meeting stands on its own and you are welcome to attend 3 consecutive meetings in the first part of 2019.

This weekend is open to all – no prior experience required.
