Diamond Heart Europe Group 4

Diamond Heart Europe Group 4



Diamond Approach Europe 4 (DHE4) is a new international ongoing retreat group that meets twice a year for 7-day retreats in Seefeld/Northern Germany. The retreats are taught in English.

DHE4 meets in a residential retreat format, which includes large group teachings with inquiry exercises, small group inquiry work, and individual sessions with a teacher. All of this together creates a field of presence for our work. Between the residential retreats, students will be offered opportunities to engage with the teaching through regional or online in-between (interim) groups. These meetings support bringing the teaching into daily life.

This new group started in 2021 and is guided by a team of five teachers: Christa Jonas, Konnie Schneider, Odile van Eck, Oliver Schumann, and Tanja Weigmann. The Directors are Jeanne Rosenblum and Rob Merkx. The founders of the Diamond Approach, Hameed Ali (who writes under the name A.H. Almaas) and Karen Johnson, oversee the curriculum of this group.

This group is open for new students. If you are interested in joining this group and participating in this teaching, please contact our group administrator at [email protected].

Introduction to the three main practices of the Diamond Approach 

"Nobody can know Being without first knowing oneself."

If we want to enjoy the expression we are as human Beings in this World,
and to find out what we are here for……
We need to be really fully here in life in the moment.

We’re happy to offer three evenings introducing and deepening the main practices of the Diamond Approach. They guide you to be in direct contact with your experience.

  • The Sensing Practice and Being Present
  • Inquiry
  • Meditation

We welcome you to join one or more evenings. They’re open to anyone interested in learning about the practices as well as using the opportunity to practice together.
