November 02 - November 03, 2019
10:00 am - 06:00 pm
Berkeley, California

Please join us this weekend as we continue to explore the human soul as the medium of consciousness that becomes structured through experience, thus limiting its freedom, dynamism, aliveness and potentiality.  We will explore the terrain of powerful lasting imprints and convictions formed when we were children and solidified throughout life. These structures govern our decisions and behavior in all aspects of our daily lives, creating messes and conflicts and rendering us impulse driven despite our sincere spiritual aspirations.

Within these structures are the gifts of vibrant delight, fiery fullness, and spontaneous aliveness. Without them our spiritual quest and life itself remains dry and unsatisfying. 

Learning about and exploring the forces trapped within these structures can help us harness their tremendous power in service of our inner transformation, enabling us to live a life full of vigor, passion and integrity as a mature human being.

Teachers will be Johanna Holloman, Blanchefluer Macher and Hameed Ali.

DH10 Big Group Meetings are where the main teachings of the Diamond Approach are presented. A unique element of DA teachings is the inclusion of specifically designed, experiential exercises that encourage students to explore and investigate the teachings truth for themselves. Meetings usually end with time for group sharing of personal experiences from the exercises, along with questions and comments.

DH10 Big Group Meetings are open to all those truly interested in joining this local Diamond Approach group. No prior experience is needed to register. New people may attend 1-2 Big Group meetings before applying and committing to the group. For accepted students, these Big Group Meetings are required.
