Inquiry: Powerful Journey Of Peace--Register Now


Diamond Approach® Florida

A new Diamond Approach® group is forming in Florida, and is welcoming those living throughout the Southeastern US. Whether you are new to this spiritual teaching, or you are an experienced student, you are invited. We meet in person  three times a year--fall, winter and spring. These meetings include talks evoking our depth, meditative practices, and experiential inquiry explorations. There are supportive online series offerings between the in person meetings. See below for our Jan 31, Feb 1-2  in person weekend in St. Pete, FL.


Our current online offering is a live inquiry group via Zoom videoconferencing. Zoom offers an easy, effective way to participate in this profound path from where you live.

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 inquire  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. This inquiry group format is useful to support your personal work and  in person meetings.

Inquiry, the central practice of the Diamond Approach, provides a unique way for us to become intimate with, and understand, our personal experience in the moment.   

When inquiry is infused with the peacefulness of the Black Essence, our inquiry—and our lives -- can feel like a peaceful, still, satiny smooth exploration. The true Power of the Black is an active expression of true Peace. True Power is an annihilating force in service of the truth that stills the agitations of the soul. When this essential Power infuses our inquiry, our exploration is steeped in a precise quietude. This in turn allows our lives to become a powerful journey of peace and absolute stillness.             

Please join us  for this meeting of the open  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.



What is the Diamond Approach?

The Diamond Approach® is a unique, worldwide, modern spiritual teaching that combines the knowledge of humanistic psychology with ancient wisdom traditions. It embraces our everyday lives and fully allows for our humanness, including our pain and vulnerabilities. It has been recognized among other spiritual teachings and paths to enlightenment for its unique suitability to modern life. It exquisitely provides us with the possibility of blossoming as complete and realized human beings.
