September 09 - November 25, 2023
10:00 am - 11:30 am


Inquiry is the central practice of the Diamond Approach path to spiritual realization.  Everything we experience is part of an unfolding meaningful tapestry that reveals the true depth and potential of who we are.  Learning to inquire is learning how to approach what happens in our day-to-day living – our joys, sorrows, frustrations, doldrums, delights, quietudes – in a new way. We can go beyond the repetitive cycle of trying to arrange our inner and outer worlds to make us feel fulfilled, successful, connected and complete, and discover that Being, our essential spiritual nature, is already living through us, waiting for our welcome and interest.

Two groups will be meeting in the spring of 2023.  In each group, up to 10 people will be able to participate in a format that includes short meditations, body awareness practices to support here-and-now contact with our experience, brief teachings about the practice of inquiry, and the opportunity for several people each meeting to be guided by a Diamond Approach teacher in inquiring into what is happening for them personally.

The teachers:

Vivienne Leahy (a native New Zealander) and Brian Leahy are Diamond Approach teachers who currently live mostly in California and spend part of the year in New Zealand.  They have studied with Hameed Ali (A. H. Almaas) and Karen Johnson, the founders of the Diamond Approach, for nearly 30 years.

                    This being human is a guest house.

                    Every morning a new arrival.

                    A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.

                    Welcome and attend them all….

                    Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
