Instinctual Alchemy

Embodied Spirituality in Turbulent Times

Sunday, September 22, 2024

10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Pacific ​

Embodying Animal and Angel

Today, we live in evocative times – where the turmoil of the world can bring us further away from ourselves and one another or provide a powerful opportunity for spiritual development and maturation. For those of us on the inner journey, how do we orient all of ourselves—including our bodies, animal instincts, and spiritual nature—to the challenges of the world as a crucible for transformation?  

Rather than a portal to the divine, the body has historically been associated with the animalistic temptations, challenges, and imbalances of human existence. Despite our sincere intentions to cultivate harmony and wholeness, our bodies’ fundamental wiring, our nervous system, can be overtaken by powerful primal impulses—especially in today’s chaotic and conflictual world. Given this set up, it’s no wonder the body and spirit are typically seen as separate and at odds.  

We need all of ourselves to meet these tumultuous times in wise and loving ways, but we might have learned to fear our own aliveness, repress our instincts, mistrust our bodies, and thereby limit our most integrated and authentic way of being in the world. 

We might wonder, Is it even possible that my body, my spiritual nature, and my instincts can be one expression of all that is good? 

Join us for a free webinar on September 22 for a body-centric exploration of how working with your social, sexual, and survival instincts can catalyze a kind of instinctual alchemy — where your deepest nature can be experienced and expressed in your physicality making you more authentically available to life. Jessica Britt and Linda Krier, long-time Diamond Approach teachers specializing in how consciousness is expressed through the body, will share with us how to engage this profound inquiry into the full-bodied-ness of your spiritual nature. We look forward to seeing you there. 

In this free webinar you’ll discover...

  • A critical, timely, and new teaching on the powerful synergy between body, instincts, and spirituality
  • Why working from and with the body is so important for true spiritual maturity  
  • How our bodies can be a location of support and spiritual alchemy during times of stress, fear, and challenge 
  • Ways our bodies primal impulses can be harmonized towards balance and integrity in today’s tumultuous reality 
  • How sensing into instinctual patterns as they unfold within our bodies can open us to new perspectives and responses in daily life

“This process of instinctual alchemy isn't just about spiritualization of matter; it's about the matterization of spirit—the alchemical fusion of body and soul into a single, radiant expression of divine consciousness.”

What is the Ridhwan School?

“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.

What is the Diamond Approach?

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 Diamond Inquiry™: non-judgment of what we’re experiencing, which brings crisp clarity into one’s own truth.
