Today’s discouraging news cycles can sometimes make us feel like humanity is bent on self-destruction. This feeling is only overwhelming, however, when we lose touch with our true spiritual nature.
In the midst of challenging times, turning inward with the support of a spiritual path becomes even more essential. Not only in helping us navigate difficulties in ourselves and the world, but in helping shift humanity itself into a more loving, unified place.
But what is a spiritual path in modern times? Is it about following a particular teacher? Discovering the mantra that heals our pain? Achieving realization? How does it differ from structured religions that hold definitive ideas about what is true and how we should be in the world?
Join us on Sunday, February 5th, as A.H. Almaas, founder of the Diamond Approach, leads us in an exploration of these important contemplations. Together we will learn what a spiritual path is and isn’t, and see how engaging in one can support us in our daily lives and chart a new course for our collective future.
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.
“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.
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.
