Diamond Approach Asia is an ongoing group that meets twice a year in person or online for 8 days. The retreats include presentations of the teaching, small inquiry groups led by a teacher, and individual sessions with a teacher. The Diamond Approach is a contemporary spiritual teaching, which considers the totality of the human being. It is a path of self realization and human maturity, based on modern discoveries in the field of psychology and a new paradigm about spiritual nature.
In June 2018 the first Diamond Approach Asia retreat took place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and we have been meeting together ever sinces. The next retreat will be Winter 2022 and is still open for new students. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic this retreat may have to be held using an online format. If you have any questions please contact us here.
In-person and online work
Both the in-person and online retreat formats allow students to make personal contact with the teaching, the teachers, and each other, all of which helps to create a deep field of presence for our work together. And our online interim meetings, which bridge the gap between our longer retreats, provide a continuum of support for deepening our work, allowing the field of presence that naturally happens through inquiry of this kind to penetrate our daily lives at home and at work.
Our next retreat may be held online due to Covid 19 travel restrictions:
December 3 - 10, 2022 Singapore Time
Retreat start and end times
The first meeting will begin at 11:00 on Saturday, December 3, 2022, and the last meeting will end at 2:00 on Saturday December 10, 2022, Singapore time. (convert to your time zone here)
There will be two teaching/practice sessions (about 3 hours each) for the whole group on each of the 6 full days of the retreat, and one teaching/practice session on the first and last day of the retreat. Additionally, there will be 2 meetings in smaller sub-groups and one hour-long scheduled private session time. There will be an online sign-up sheet for those who wish to have additional private sessions. The exact schedule will be emailed to you upon registration. You should not plan other activities during the retreat, although you will find there is some unscheduled time for resting, walking, writing, etc. See general retreat schedule here.
All large group teaching sessions are recorded. The recordings will be available as soon as possible after each session.
Retreat Recordings are for review only and downloaded files must not be copied or shared, even with other students in the group. This is a school-wide policy and we ask that you honor it.
