What attracted you to the Diamond Approach?: 

Some friends of mine started attending a retreat group in CA, and I began reading Hameed’s books. I attended a few Diamond Approach weekends in 1994 with Alia Johnson in NY. When Duncan Scribner started the first Boston group in 1995 where I lived, I joined that group.

At that time in my life I was feeling a certain flatness and discouragement. There was an emptiness that I had felt from a young age. I had a deep thirst that I couldn’t name and when I started in the Diamond Approach I felt as if I had finally found a deep drink of water. I felt supported, encouraged and held. I felt at home.
