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@ridhwan.org.

Compassion and The Way of Truth

September 15-16, 2018
Teachers: Bob Duchmann, Nancee Sobonya and Karen Johnson
Daily Schedule: 10-1 pm (lunch) 2:30-5:45 pm
Cost: $175
OPEN TO ALL

Compassion and The Way of Truth: CADH10 will continue the arc of teachings of the Diamond Approach over the balance of the 2018-year schedule, and each weekend or daylong will present a Diamond Approach methodology.

“So what is the relationship between hurt, truth and compassion? Compassion is a kind of healing agent that helps us tolerate the hurt of seeing the truth. The point of compassion is not to eliminate suffering, but to lead a person to the truth so that she will be able to live the life of truth.” AH Almaas

In this weekend we will continue to explore how the essential quality of Compassion, which is inherent to everyone, enables us to be with the truth of our experience and arises most explicitly when we are encountering painful challenges. Learning how to truly be with our pain opens the doorway to the presence of the compassionate heart which helps us to develop trust, allows us to be vulnerable and transforms our suffering into the presence of gentle loving kindness. This is a central quality for the practice of inquiry that opens us to ever deepening truths of our nature and ourselves.

Supported by the Diamond Approach practices of inquiry, sensing, meditation and the presence of the group, we will explore whatever truths and treasures may be revealed – from the surface to the depth. With our willingness to immerse ourselves openly and courageously in this fascinating exploration, the freedom to simply be awaits us – to be intimately close, connected and learn to live fully in accordance to what is real, authentic and true.

All are invited to join DH10 teachers Bob Duchmann, Nancee Sobonya and Karen Johnson, our supervisor and co-founder of the Diamond Approach as we continue to explore this deep and heartfelt subject so necessary for the spiritual path.

Each meeting stands on its own and you are welcome to attend 3 consecutive meetings in 2018.

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