Diamond Approach Asia

We are happy to announce that Diamond Approach Asia will launch in 2018. 

DA Asia will be an ongoing group that meets once a year in person for eight days. The retreat will 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 will allow 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.

Anyone interested in learning about the Diamond Approach or in joining this group is welcome to attend a free online chat with one of the Diamond Approach Asia teachers. You can find information the chats below.

Please contact Jill Carabelas at for more information.
