The Diamond Approach is both an understanding of our deepest human nature and a path to realizing and developing our fullest potential. It is a wisdom teaching providing a precise method for inner transformation. The work involves spiritual as well as psychological exploration that can be seen as understanding and metabolizing one’s personality or ego.
Through this process, we learn that we can experience our spiritual nature, opening to various qualities of presence, i.e., love, clarity, peace, strength, truth, and others. This reconnection to the essential dimension awakens the soul to itself.
The Diamond Approach is a path for becoming mature human beings who express deep inner transformation and essential freedom while living a human life in this world.
Students of the Diamond Approach practice Diamond Inquiry™, open-ended inquiry that is a moment-to-moment investigation into the truth of their experience.
In addition, meditation and body-sensing practices open the capacity to experience presence and support the soul's transformation.
The work is done in large-group format, small-groups settings, and in private sessions with Diamond Approach teachers.
The Diamond Approach was brought forward by A.H. Almaas (Hameed Ali). It is offered in groups and private-session work throughout the world.
