Walking the Diamond Path

The Magnetic Force of Love

Recording Only.
This event took place on October 10 & 11.

For the Truth Seeker and Mystery Lover

We are a mystery school that has provided the teachings of the Diamond Approach to the world for 45 years. The way we have taught this spiritual body of knowledge is through ongoing groups that gather regularly in person for weekends and retreats.

Since COVID-19 began, we moved all of our current in-person groups online for the sake of safety. We have been inspired by the kinds of experiences that emerged from this transition to gathering online, and we feel the real possibility of offering an ongoing group in this online format.

We are inviting new students who value spiritual illumination, who sincerely want to know the truth of life and reality, to join us for a living laboratory that we intend to become our first Diamond Heart Online group (DHON1).

Our intention is to develop an international group of committed students, of many cultures and backgrounds, that can go on for some years. This is a novel opportunity for those who want to engage with this path in an ongoing way but are unable to participate in our usual, preferred, in-person style. This group is for new students only.

The best way to learn more is to participate in courses like this from our introductory series, Walking the Diamond Path. Here you may experientially explore the teachings of the school with the founders of the Diamond Approach, long-time Diamond Approach students, and other seekers, lovers, adventurers of consciousness who are new to the path.

The Heart is the Key to the Universe

“When we feel richness and love and joy, frustration doesn’t have to overtake us. We don’t do things or act in ways that we know are not the best for us.”

Discover How the Force of Love Can Guide You Home

Love is the most powerful force in the universe and at the heart of what makes us human. It is something we all need, particularly in times like these when more people are suffering, isolated, and alone. Yet, the word love brings up all kinds of things for people.

Some of us may be afraid of it, some may chase after it, some may shield themselves from it. We may have been wounded around love and wonder if we are lovable, or whether we have any love to give. Everyone believes they know what love is, but while the heart itself isn’t limited, our ideas about it are.  

In this recorded online workshop, we will start to explore the ideas, beliefs, and emotional debris that stand in the way of experiencing a deeper kind of love that is available to all human beings; a force that can truly open us and break down our walls so we can experience an abiding sense of goodness that is unshakable by external circumstances.

Love is an adventure into reality. It's not just to liberate us from suffering, which happens naturally as we engage our spiritual nature, but to discover - what are we? What is this world?

Join us for “The Magnetic Force of Love”
and we will explore...

What the force of love really is

How we can experience it as a guiding force

How accessing this love connects us with an inner goodness that supports us in confronting and dealing with outer challenges

Interested in learning more? Watch this special mini-teaching on The Magnetic Force of Love with Diamond Approach co-founders A.H. Almaas and Karen Johnson.

We invite you to join us for The Magnetic Force of Love, the first in our online introductory series, Walking the Diamond Path. Diamond Approach teachers and co-developers A.H. Almaas and Karen Johnson will help you get in touch with your true heart and connect with the very power of love itself that opens up the universe and shows us the beauty and meaning of life.

“There are many kinds of love. There is passionate love, there is appreciative love, there is melting love, there are universal kinds of love - but they all share something. And this something is implicit in all kinds of love - it is a force that tends to bring things closer together.”

“The Magnetic Force of Love” Will Help You...

Identify the obstacles in the way of your ability to experience this love

Become more aware of your own goodness and capacity for love

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.

Karen Johnson

Karen Johnson

Karen Johnson is the co-developer of the Diamond Approach as it is taught in the Ridhwan School today, having worked alongside Hameed Ali (A. H. Almaas) for the last 40 years. Karen was trained in art and dance and began the journey into the spiritual universe at 14 years old with the guidance of her parents.  First, she was introduced to yoga and meditation and then learned about other forms of spiritual practice, which allowed her to develop her innate paranormal capacities. After attending California College of Arts and Crafts, she befriended Hameed Ali, and with him began a new trajectory into the secrets of the universe of Being, which became the Diamond Approach. Karen also received an MA in psychology at JFK University in 1990 and is the author of two books, The Jeweled Path: The Biography of the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization and The Power of Divine Eros: The Illuminating Force of Love in Everyday Life. She continues to venture into new explorations of the endless realms of our miraculous Nature.

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?
