What is the Diamond Approach?

The Diamond Approach is both an understanding of our deepest human nature and a path to realizing and developing our fullest potential. It provides a precise method for inner work. This understanding incorporates modern psychological insights and offers effective practices for self-realization. Furthermore, it encourages us to live our realizations in our everyday lives. Most of all, the Diamond Approach is a path for living as real, fulfilled, free, and mature human beings.

Students of the Diamond Approach practice open-ended inquiry, a moment-to-moment investigation into the truth of their experience. In addition, meditation and ancient body sensing practices of presence provide guidance for the soul's transformation. The work is done in large group format, small groups settings, and in private sessions with Diamond Approach teachers.

The Diamond Approach was developed by A.H. Almaas and is offered in groups throughout the world. For more information, see the Ridhwan School Website at www.ridhwan.org .
