What have you learned as a result of studying the Diamond Approach?:
I feel I am much more embodied in this life as a result of my work in the school. There is more consciousness within my body itself, bringing more capacity to live in the moment--without being scared out, or bogged down by the baggage of history. There is palpable openness, presence, and awareness, so that choices and actions more closely match the reality of what is really happening. There is increased dynamism and aliveness, as well as feeling firmly grounded in my own nature and existence. I can be a more real human being in the world. That of course is still developing.
What would you like your potential students to know about you as a teacher of the Diamond Approach?:
I feel myself to be a creative and playful person. I love to explore possibilities of human interaction. I am very interested in the power and intimacy of the human voice. I incorporate awareness of, and experimentation with, one’s own voice into my work with students when appropriate.
What attracted you to the Diamond Approach?:
I needed to find a teaching that would speak also to my body, as I tend to learn so much through the body. Hameed’s language was a language my body could hear and understand.
What is most important for people to understand about the Diamond Approach?:
It is a path that keeps opening to more truth. There is no one perfect place to get to. It takes work and commitment and courage.
