The Diamond Approach is a path of wisdom, an approach to the investigation of reality and work on oneself that leads to human maturity and liberation. Part of the necessary work is to free oneself from the "inner critic" – a tenacious layer of the personality that prevents growth, inner peace, and freedom. It does this by criticizing you, putting you down, and attacking you over and over for mistakes you make. It sets up unreasonable goals, then moves the bar higher. For the inner critic, you are never good enough, yet it really doesn't want you to change either. The Diamond Approach has a highly effective methodology to free yourself from this force. In this experiential process, you will come to understand why the inner critic formed, identify the particular prison yours keeps you in, and gain the beginning steps to the process of disengaging from this oppressive force.

Ahead of this comprehensive series, you can attend a free intro talk on Wednesday evening February 15, which provides an opportunity to learn more about the inner critic. You can attend that talk either as a standalone event or in preparation for this workshop.

The workshop series itself is a deep dive. It includes two Saturdays (morning and afternoon, with a lunch break) and three Wednesday evenings. It spans March and April, with a follow-up meeting in June to help with questions that have arisen as you've been using the material and practicing defending against your inner critic.

Please be aware that this event is scheduled on Hawai'i time, which is two hours earlier than Pacific time. Advanced registration required. Registration deadline: March 15.


To register contact Anne Hoff or Ursula McCall. Advanced registration required; deadline to register is March 15.
