Take the opportunity to be heard and held.  

According to A. H. Almaas, founder of the Diamond Approach, real transformation comes from equal parts experience and understanding: you won’t get the key to the treasure inside you with either one by itself. 

In the Diamond Approach, the practice of Inquiry taps into your own feelings and intuitions, honoring your experience, so that you recognize the truth as it lives in you—in your own precious depths.  

Without this process of deeply recognizing and understanding what’s true for you—at each step of your path—you may find that once-potent practices only lead to plateaus; that despite the many workshops you’ve taken, real transformation remains elusive; that at the end of the day, you just don’t feel like a different person. 

If you long for something more real and dynamic, our  Online Inquiry Groups can provide the guidance and practice you need to integrate the power and love of the truth into your life, which allows true transformation to happen. 

Inquiry groups give you the opportunity to take teachings you’ve received in the intellectual realm, to “work” them, and to see if they are true for you. With a trained Diamond Approach teacher and the support of a small group of fellow explorers, what’s true can ignite in you and touch you at your core.  

In your Online Inquiry Group, you will:  

  • Take turns with other students working one-on-one with an expert Diamond Approach teacher to explore your life’s challenges, opportunities, and questions 
  • Come to know yourself more deeply and begin to build an intimate relationship with who you are at the core 
  • See that the key to greater spiritual transformation is right there, in your in-the-moment experience, and learn how to tap into that at any time
  • Build community with other spiritual seekers and practitioners to create a supportive container for mutual sharing and growth

Group Details 

This summer’s online groups start dates vary between July 12th and July 18th. They meet every 2-3 weeks for a series of six 90-minute sessions. 

Capped at 12 participants and with opportunities to continue with your practice group beyond the first series of sessions, your group will become a supportive “landing pad” for growing your community and integrating spiritual understanding with practice at the deepest level. 

All of our Diamond Approach teachers receive a minimum of 7 years of intensive training and give masterful guidance to help you explore your inner landscape. Choose your group here.

What past participants have to say… 

“Inquiry offers the opportunity to develop an intimate relationship with yourself. Our culture teaches us how to turn away and distract ourselves from uncomfortable emotions with all sorts of doing: working, drinking, cleaning, shopping, gaming, etc. Inquiry leads us to Truth and strangely enough, when you’re in touch with the truth, no matter what it is, there’s a profound joy and peace to be discovered in the realness. It’s a deeply invaluable gift we can give to ourselves.” — Meg Miller  

“How often do we have an opportunity to be heard and held? That alone puts me into a state of deep presence. I never know what will appear because it’s so different than what my thoughts were just mere moments beforehand. There’s a gift that appears and it is about what actually matters…not what I was thinking mattered. And it gets to unfold as it will without my personality interrupting. It brings a lump to my throat just talking about this process. The love I feel and the love I experience from the Universe have collided to support my being. And it happens every time…never fails. How often does that happen in life.” — Rebecca B. 


Online Inquiry Groups are open to people of all experience levels.
