The world is experiencing an unprecedented global health emergency. Confirmed coronavirus cases increase, healthcare supplies decrease, and we’re being asked to stay at home to help flatten the curve. Our daily lives, our normal routines, our certainty have been taken away.
Sheltering at home, the physical withdrawal to help protect the health of others, is necessary. But for some, an unintended side effect of this physical withdrawal has been an inner shutdown.
For some of us closing out the noise of the world is unintentionally closing down our inner experience too.
Physical distancing is necessary, but social connection and personal contact is needed now more than ever. Personal contact with your personal experience – all of your experience including anger, frustration, helplessness, sadness, emptiness, boredom, uncertainty – is needed now, too.
We invite you to join A.H. Almaas (Hameed Ali) Saturday, April 11 at 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PT for a special public, online talk, Coronavirus and the Diamond Approach. A.H. Almaas will support you in exploring your current experience to identify internal conditionings that are keeping you in a personal lockdown so you can find the clarity needed to fully live your life.
A.H. Almaas (pen name for Hameed Ali) is the founder of the Diamond Approach to Self-Realization, a contemporary teaching that developed within the context of both ancient spiritual teachings and modern depth psychology theories. He has authored eighteen books about spiritual realization, including the Diamond Heart series, The Pearl Beyond Price, The Void, and The Alchemy of Freedom.
He is the founder of the Ridhwan School for Spiritual Development, an inner work school devoted to the realization of True Nature. The orientation of the school is directed toward guiding students to realize their true nature to the fullest realization and further still to endless enlightenment. His next book Love Unveiled is available now. Order a copy from Shambhala Publications, Amazon, Barnes & Noble or any other book supplier.
“Ridhwan” is a Sufi word. It means “satisfied and satisfying.” Our school, home to more than 4,000 students across the globe, has the potential to both help you to be fulfilled and to help others be fulfilled. Students learn to ground, sensitize, recognize, and trust the inherent guidance of Being.
The Diamond Approach is the core teaching of the Ridhwan School, a spiritual path that approaches our ordinary experiences, emotions, and sensations in a friendly way of understanding. This radical acceptance of our situation allows something to come through that puts us in touch with our spirituality.
In the Diamond Approach, everything we experience is utilized as a doorway to our spiritual nature. Rather than negating or seeking to transcend parts of our humanness that are considered barriers to realization, we learn to approach each aspect of our physical, emotional, and mental experience with acceptance and open curiosity to discover its truth. We do meditation and other exercises, but the main method is inquiry: non-judgment of what we’re experiencing, which brings crisp clarity into one’s own truth.
In this special, 90-minute recording you’ll hear a talk from A.H. Almaas, meditate in virtual community, and learn more as Almaas answers participant questions.
You will receive immediate access to the downloadable event recording.
The live session took place on April 11 and you will receive a downloadable recording of the event.
