The Spiritual Life of the Body

This event took place on May 7 & 8

Discover How Your Body Can Express
the Gifts of Spirit in Everyday Life

Our bodies are under tremendous stress these days in a world that is experiencing tremendous challenges. Our capacity to bring the truth of our realization and the truth of spiritual reality into the way we live our lives, is needed now more than ever.

Building on the first three teachings in the Spiritual Wisdom of the Body series, Living Presence will help us understand that as we live more into our bodies and heal the inner separation of body and soul by releasing old tension patterns and ego identities, the spiritual qualities of our being are more able to be expressed through our bodies in our daily lives.

From the way that our heart communicates through the look in our eyes, to the way compassion moves us to act, to how we can bring peace into a particular situation simply by what we radiate. The more our inner presence permeates our flesh, the more the myriad blessings of our beingness–peace, wisdom, care, safety, truth–can be expressed in very real, concrete ways, body to body, in a physical world that is in deep need of it.

“Our bodies are not a superficial aspect of our being; our bodies are a deep entrance into our being."

During our time together, we will...

Learn how our histories may have led us to suppress the full expression of our life force and how our bodies can be liberated from the burden of carrying our past

Feel how entering our body with kindness, valuing, and curiosity changes the expression of our body from a thing or an object to a living, precious, and wise expression of our soul

Discover how respecting our bodies as expressions of spirit can be a bridge that connects our inner life with our ordinary, day-to-day life

Realize that when we define people according to their bodies, we lose sight of the preciousness of the body as spiritual expression

See that our body doesn’t need to be in any certain condition or look any particular way to have spiritual value; that it is always a portal to deeper being and realization, no matter its state

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.
