Riveting interviewer and founder of Sounds True, Tami Simon, talks with Diamond Approach founder A.H. Almaas (Hameed Ali) and teacher Zarina Maiwandi to help sincere truth seekers learn more about the Diamond Approach (also called the Diamond Path) and the first-ever, all-online Diamond Approach group.
Tami Simon is the founder of the Wisdom Publishing House and Sounds True, and co-founder of Eckhart Tolle TV.

Kramer, and their two spoodles, Raspberry and Bula, in Boulder, Colorado.
A.H. Almaas (pen name for Hameed Ali) is the founder of the Diamond Approach, a contemporary teaching that developed within the context of both ancient spiritual teachings and modern depth psychology theories. He has authored eighteen books about spiritual realization, including the Diamond Heart series, The Pearl Beyond Price, The Void, and The Alchemy of Freedom. He is the founder of the Ridhwan School for Spiritual Development, an inner work school devoted to the realization of True Nature. The orientation of the school is directed toward guiding students to realize their true nature to the fullest realization and further still, to endless enlightenment.
Zarina Maiwandi has been a student of the Diamond Approach since 1999 and a teacher since 2015, working with groups in the United States, Asia, and Europe. Trained as an academic studying Western philosophy and literature, she edits books, including several written by A.H. Almaas.
