I discovered the Diamond Approach twenty years ago when I moved to California from Ohio to pursue doctoral studies in East/West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. While studying transpersonal psychology there, I was introduced to the Diamond Approach. Actually, I first stumbled upon the book Luminous Night's Journey by A. H. Almaas, which attracted me to learn more about the Diamond Approach. When I read this book, I felt such a deep resonance that I knew I had found a spiritual path and a teacher to guide my soul's unfolding and inner journey "home." What was most important to me then, and continues to be, is that this is a path of inquiry, which is open, open-ended, and unending.
