February Retreat: The Inherent Spaciousness of Our Inner Nature
February 16 to 19
When we know ourselves in a real way, we experience a sense of inner spaciousness. Unbound by the habitual ways we define who and what we are, we feel a sense of room and ease to simply be ourselves, however we are.
On this retreat, we will begin to explore this inner spaciousness of our true nature, and address the most common barriers to knowing ourselves in this way: the self images, ideas and beliefs we have long felt are the very definition of who and what we are. Paradoxically, when we make space to see and understand these self images, without judgment, we find ourselves living more in the land of real, inner spaciousness.
This group is currently open to new students.
Where: This retreat will be on Zoom.
Cost: $385. Financially based scholarship is available.

Free Introduction to the Diamond Approach - Freedom from Our Conventional View
February 16, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
There is a conventional view of life that we all tend to live through. It is a view of things, and ourselves, that is shaped by our history and conditioning. Because it is a view that is filtered through through conditioning and history, it is a view that is not alive, fresh, and open. This conventional view obstructs the space needed for the spiritual journey.
If we don’t see the ways we are shaped by this conventional view of reality that is more like an image than something real, any experiences of inner freedom will remain only as momentary, peak experiences. However, we can wake up in such as way that we actually have space to see our conventional view for what it is. Only then can we be open to discover reality in a truly fresh way.
If you are new to the Diamond Approach, and want to get a taste of the teaching, join us for this evening meeting. This is the first meeting of our December Retreat, and will include a meditation, a talk, an experiential exploration, and a time for questions and discussion. After attending this meeting, you may choose to register for and participate in the rest of the December retreat.

If you would like to further explore your interest in the Diamond Approach you can apply to work with a Diamond Approach teacher in individual spiritual insight sessions.
In private session work, you work one on one with a teacher to learn the Diamond Approach practice of Inquiry - an open ended exploration into the truth of your immediate experience. This can include psychological discernment, precise questioning, breath work, and body sensing practices. All of these processes support your unfolding discoveries about your inner nature and spiritual development. Your personal unfoldment arises naturally, spontaneously and uniquely in a way that is natural, spontaneous, and unique.
