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.

Loving Light in Current Times

April 4-5, 2020 
Teachers: Karen Johnson and DH10 Teachers
Daily Schedule: 10am – 6pm
Cost: $175

During this April weekend we venture further into our inquiry of the profound universal dimension of generous being, which we call Loving Light. Jumping off from last meeting’s Enneagram exploration, we venture deeper into the felt sense of the disconnection and reconnection to the Loving Light and its holding. We will explore the various ways this dimension effects us in our lives and our relationship to the environment and world. As we learn to cultivate an awareness and openness to this Loving Light, we can experience a kind and deeply satisfying presence of feeling held in the goodness of the universe. We learn how the Loving Light is our inner most nature and therefore not dependent on life’s changing outer circumstances.

This teaching is particularly relevant for our current situation with mounting fears of the Corona virus and global economies. 
The weekend will be taught by Karen Johnson, Bob Duchmann with a special appearance by Hameed Ali on Sunday morning.

ATTENTION: April 4-5 Big Group Meeting has been moved online to Zoom. Please register as normal and wait for special instructions via email.
