Spirituality in Daily Life

Essence of Love

Open the potential for the love within you.

Recording Only. This event took place on Sunday, May 17th.

Is it true that all we need is love?

In times of crisis, we often see an outpouring of what we call the “human spirit”:  that force that compels people to show up with greater compassion and care for one another.

This love is available to us all the time, yet many of us grapple on a daily basis with how to access it, both for ourselves and others.  So what stands in the way?

Since none of us was loved “perfectly” as a young child, we’ve all developed defenses and negative beliefs over time around our lovability…

“I don’t deserve that kind of love.”

“I’m too ______(fill in the blank) to be loved.”

“What good will love do me?”

“Nothing is as important as who you truly are — your essence, which is pure Being.”

"Essence of Love" Will Help You...

Understand what it's like to experience love as a fundamental part of who you are

Examine your personal blocks to love and discover how working through those blocks allows you to give and receive love from others.

Unlock your ability to truly love yourself by learning to see the value of the beautiful being you really are.

What if we could unlock our innate capacity to love ourselves and share that love with others?

In this special pre-recorded seminar, Diamond Approach co-founder A.H. Almaas (Hameed Ali), will lead you in an exploration of several key aspects of the Diamond Approach’s teachings on love. Essence of Love is the second of our 2020 live online seminar, Spirituality in Daily Life series on the Divine Heart of Humanity.

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

What’s included in the program?

In this pre-recorded workshop, you’ll hear a talk from Hameed, participate in experiential exercises, enjoy music and guided meditations, and learn from other participants in the Q&A portion with Hameed.
