The group will meet twice a year for 7-day retreats in the spring and fall.
The orientation of this group is the shifting over time of one’s identity and sense of self from the personality or ego to one’s deeper and ultimate nature—Being. Just as important is the integration of this experiential knowledge, such that one’s life becomes a lived and fulfilling expression of our realization. In the contemporary spiritual path of Diamond Approach, this becomes possible through bridging traditional divisions between the sacred and the mundane, the spiritual and the worldly, inner realization and our psychology. While utilizing elements from depth psychology, the enneagram where applicable, and traditional spiritual knowledge and practices, it is a new method for engaging in the process of radical personal transformation.
The format of the group will include presentations of the teaching, personal inquiries done with others, private inquiry sessions with assisting teachers, process groups, and movement exercises. Through these different modalities, students will be exploring themselves in a deep and experiential way. Because the teaching builds on itself, it is expected that students will participate in all retreats. Please note that the enneagram will be a subset of this work and not the central subject.
For prices, dates, and other logistics, please see the group website. This will be an open group into 2021.
