Inquiry, the central practice of the Diamond Approach, offers a powerful, dynamic doorway to becoming more intimate with our own personal experience in the moment. It is a unique method of self-understanding. We will meet live as a group and you will have the opportunity to work individually with the teacher while in the supportive online presence of the other group members. We will also explore and learn meditation, and sensing practice, which are supportive to understanding the Diamond Approach. The group format is useful to compliment and deepen your personal work.

Inquiry, the central practice of the Diamond Approach®, needs the fiery aliveness of the Red essence. This fieriness allows us to engage the essential Strength and Aliveness that is needed to face the challenges we sometimes encounter with Inquiry. This robust aliveness gives us a sense that we have the capacity to meet those challenges. The Red essence also gives us the strength to defend against the attacks of our superego. We then can inquire more clearly. This, in turn, energizes our inquiry, allowing it to ignite into a bold, alive adventure.
If you live anywhere in the Southeast U.S., please join us for this meeting of the forming Diamond Approach Florida group. There will be evocative talks, meditation, personal inquiry exploration, and an opportunity to work individually with one of the teachers, while in the supportive presence of other group members.
