Diamond Approach Asia

We are happy to announce that Diamond Approach Asia launched in 2018 and we are still welcoming new students. We are planning our next retreat July 11-18, 2020 in Chiang Mai, Thailand! More details can be found at

Diamond Apporach Asia is an ongoing group that meets twice a year in person for 8 days. The retreats include presentations of the teaching, small inquiry groups led by a teacher, and individual sessions with a teacher. 

Group members will also have the opportunity to engage the teaching through various online formats: presentations by experienced teachers, small inquiry groups in which to practice the art of inquiry in a group format, and one-on-one sessions where students can do personal inquiry with a teacher.

The in-person 8-day format allows students to make personal contact with the teaching, the teachers, and each other, all of which will help to create a deep field of presence for our work together. And our online meetings, which bridge the gap between in-person retreats, will provide a continuum of support for deepening our work, allowing the field of presence that naturally happens through inquiry of this kind to penetrate our daily lives at home and at work.

Future Retreat Dates:

December 5 – December 13, 2020

June 26 – July 3, 2021
December 4 – December 12, 2021

June 25 – July 2, 2022
December 3 – December 11, 2022
