Our basic spiritual orientation is love for the Truth. However, this orientation confronts us with the fact that inner exploration often brings up formidable difficulties. These can challenge our ability to stay open and engaged with our work. What is needed now is our Essential Will. “The true function of the Will is to help us become steadfast so that we are not swayed, and not distracted or seduced away from the inquiry. We keep on exploring regardless of what happens.” ~AH Almaas

Join us to learn about our Essential Will and what tends to prevent our access to it. To support your process with this teaching a small group led by a Diamond Approach teacher will follow on Sunday. This format, offers an opportunity to practice inquiry, the primary practice of the Diamond Approach.

WHAT TO EXPECT: This all-day workshop will include meditations, talks, and a chance to practice inquiry, the primary practice of the Diamond Approach.

Cost $160. If you need financial assistance, please contact Ben or Dale at the email addresses at the bottom of the page.
