Seminar description: Our world is so fractured at this point in time that people do not even agree that it is fractured. This is not the first time in history that we have been in crisis as a world. Yet, the infomation age has provided a new kind of contact with the various cultures and traditions of the world that we cannot deny their existence and condition.
We will explore not only how to live in this world, but how to live one's spiritual depth. We will explore how spiritual qualities and wisdom help us live a meaningful life that expresses the joy and truth of the invisible world and at the same time serves humanity in the ways appropriate for today's shifting and challenging situations.
We will use the extensive, precise knowledge and wisdom of the Diamond Approach, which emerged and developed within the time this world has been developing through the meeting of cultures, races, and religions. Many kinds of spiritual qualities are needed to live in the world, and new views of spiritual unity are necessary to live in this world without forgetting that our Being is not of it. We will use spiritual wisdom combined with modern methods of exploration and practice for each of us to delve deeply into how we feel, how to open to healing, and how to gain support to stay whole and truly human. We will offer practices that work in our times, which we can utilize within the various challenges by turning them into opportunities for growth and maturation.
This is the last in the Quasar series of public seminars and is primarily for individuals who wish to have a direct experiental taste of the Diamond Approach work. These seminars present the teaching from a specific new perspective. Each Quasar seminar stands on its own. No prior experience in the Quasar seminars or in the Diamond Approach work is needed to attend.
The Diamond Approach, as taught in the Ridhwan School, is a contemporary, original, spiritual understanding and path, expressing timeless wisdom on self-relization using the insights of our time. Modern psychological understanding and spiritual wisdom are intergrated to provide deeper and more effective means of realizing, developing, and living our full potential. At each stage of the spiritual journey, we encounter beliefs, identifications and resistances, which can inhibit our development. The Diamond Approach invites us to see these as both veils and keys to our full human potential. The teaching provides a deep synthetic understaning of, and effective means of dealing with these issues and obstacles, in a way that opens up the consciousness to timeless spiritual realities.
