Diamond Heart Europe Group 4

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

The residential retreat format 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 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 Director is Jeanne Rosenblum. 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 intersted in joining this group and participating in this teaching, please contact our group administrator at
