Spiritual Wisdom of the Body

Adventures in Embodied Inquiry

Essential Wholeness of Body, Mind & Heart

June 4 & 5, 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Pacific

Living a Truly Embodied Life

We’re all born with open hearts and a natural curiosity. As children we’re in a constant stream of touching, perceiving, and feeling on every level of our being. Life itself is an adventure in embodied inquiry.

As we grow, however, our natural curiosity is often disciplined out of us and we encounter painful experiences that cause us to disconnect from our bodies and from our feelings. And while there was deep wisdom in doing what was needed to protect ourselves, shutting down to difficult emotions also closed us off to knowing ourselves more deeply and accessing our inner spiritual gifts.

In Adventures in Embodied Inquiry, the fifth and final part of the Spiritual Wisdom of the Body series, Diamond Approach teacher, Jessica Britt, will lead us in an exploration of the ways we can reawaken our natural capacity to be curious, open, and loving. She will show us how when we turn those capacities inward, we can begin to release old hurts, liberate the stuck places in us, and come to know ourselves in a truly embodied way that has the potential to transform our lives.

“This moment in time, this moment on the planet, needs more embodied beings. I want to invite you to enter the possibility of really becoming fully who and what you are.”

-Jessica Britt, Diamond Approach Teacher

During our time together, we will...

Learn the practical tools of embodied inquiry and how to include our mind, heart, and especially our bodies, in the process so we begin to know ourselves in a deeper way

Feel how dropping more deeply into our own bodies brings us closer to the ground of our being, where our inner support resides

Experience how having that support allows us to be with the difficult situations that cut us off from our feelings, and how that process created tensions patterns in our body

Discover how, as we engage those historical tension patterns, they can begin to unwind and release, making room for more aliveness and presence

See what a precious gift our own embodiment is, not just to ourselves but to our communities and to our world

FAQ

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.
