Like many teachers on our path I have a broad background in spiritual work. In my professional life and my personal life 'being real' is a dominant theme. I want to fully experience my life and appreciate the gift of it. As I say that I am not denying life's difficulties instead I seek to embrace all of life - in its fullness and its richness.
At first the Diamond Approach was just a possibility among many worthwhile paths. With continued exposure I experienced a path that was unique, original, and one that supported truth - and truth from personal experience. The path is multi layered and seems so far to be ever expanding. The dynamism of the Diamond Approach is an important element of the work we do. A path that supports our humanity is very appealing to me, When the Diamond Approach grounds the work in our lived human experience it becomes a very unusual spiritual path. One that can be valued not for what it says but rather for how it unfolds for the seeker.
It seems to me that the Diamond Approach is an exploration of the self by the self. There are a wealth of resources and supports available within the Diamond Approach. Yet ultimately the path can only be walked alone. The Diamond Approach prepares us to do that.
