Produced in collaboration with Conscious Life, the co-founders of the Diamond Approach, A. H. Almaas (Hameed Ali) and Karen Johnson, will guide you on a journey of inquiry and practice, exploring how you can integrate technology into your life in a way that supports your inner awakening.
Together Karen and Hameed discuss important questions around technology and its part in our awakening, and ultimately—rather than seeing technology as something to tolerate—to understand it as a reflection of the unity of presence and a powerful vehicle to support our individual and collective awakening.
This online course includes:
- An introduction to life as a spiritual practice and sensing practice
- Three self-paced, pre-recorded teaching videos, approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours in length each
- Three self-paced, pre-recorded Q&A videos with A. H. Almaas and Karen Johnson, approximately 1 hour in length each
- Exercises that will help you explore the content in your own life
The course is appropriate for those engaged with the Diamond Approach, as well as those new to this work.
A. H. Almaas (Hameed Ali) is the creator 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 is the author of eighteen books about spiritual realization and the founder of the Ridhwan School, an inner-work school devoted to the realization of True Nature. The orientation of the school is directed toward helping students become aware of and embody their “essence” or essential nature.
Karen Johnson is the co-developer of the Diamond Approach, having worked alongside A. H. Almaas for the last 40 years. Karen began the journey into the spiritual universe at 14 years old with the guidance of her parents. First, she was introduced to yoga and meditation, and then learned about other forms of spiritual practice, which allowed her to develop her innate paranormal capacities. After attending California College of Arts and Crafts, she befriended Hameed Ali, and with him began a new trajectory into the secrets of the universe of Being, which became the Diamond Approach. Karen received an MA in psychology at JFK University in 1990.
