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 teaching, or you are an experienced student, you are invited. We meet in person approximately three times a year. These meetings include talks evoking our depth, meditative practices, and experiential inquiry explorations. There are supportive online series offerings between the in person meetings. 

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 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, provides a unique way for us to become intimate with, and understand, our personal experience in the moment.  When inquiry is infused with the Essential Aspect of Will, our inquiry - and our lives - can feel like a steadfast journey of discovery.  Essential Will is the source of the determination to maintain our love of the truth. This brings about a sense of confidence in discovering the wondrous treasure that is within us - who we really are.  With this discovery, our inner journey and our lives can be transformed. 

 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.



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 for its unique suitability to modern life. It exquisitely provides us with the possibility of blossoming as complete and realized human beings.
