Individuals who wish to work with a private teacher but who live in an area where there are no teachers may apply to work with a teacher online.
If you are interested in working with a private teacher online, we invite you to read the Information Statement (PDF document), which briefly describes the Diamond Approach, the spiritual work of Ridhwan Teachers, and the Ridhwan Foundation.
To work with a teacher, please fill out the Student Questionnaire (Microsoft Word document). The questionnaire is designed to provide us with valuable information that will be useful in your work with a Ridhwan Teacher, and to help us determine whether this work will be appropriate and of benefit to you.
A small committee of teachers will review your application, and if this path and online sessions seem appropriate for you they will make one or more referrals for you to a private teacher. Please know this information will be held confidentially.
Teacher fees for private sessions are determined and set by the individual teacher and so vary throughout the world. The typical range is about $100/$120 hour. Some teachers work on sliding scales. Sessions typically take place every week, every other week, or once a month.
You can expect to hear back from the committee in 3-4 weeks.
