The Diamond Approach

The Diamond Approach is a contemporary spiritual teaching which considers the totality of the human being. It is a path of self-realization and human maturity. The Diamond Approach is based on an original synthesis of modern psychology and a new paradigm about spiritual nature.

The Diamond Approach teaching is taught in the Ridhwan School. More information about the Ridhwan school and the teaching and method of the Diamond Approach can be found here.

Ongoing Diamond Approach Group in Asia

Diamond Approach Asia is an ongoing group that meets twice a year in person for 8 days. The retreats include presentations of the teaching, small inquiry groups led by a teacher, and individual sessions with a teacher.

Group members also have the opportunity to engage the teaching through various online formats: presentations by experienced teachers, small inquiry groups in which to practice the art of inquiry in a group format, and one-on-one sessions where students can do personal inquiry with a teacher.

In June 2018 the first Diamond Approach Asia retreat took place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and was a great success. The next in-person retreat will be in July 2020 and is still open for new students. Are you interested to join? You can find all information here on the website and if you have any questions please contact us here.

In-person and online work

The in-person 8-day retreats allows students to make personal contact with the teaching, the teachers, and each other, all of which helps to create a deep field of presence for our work together. And our online meetings, which bridge the gap between our in-person retreats, provide a continuum of support for deepening our work, allowing the field of presence that naturally happens through inquiry of this kind to penetrate our daily lives at home and at work.

Our next retreat will be in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from July 11 to 18, 2020.
