Diamond Approach South Africa

The Magic and Mystery of Being

**All are welcome – no prior experience required.**

Joins us for a weekend zoom retreat, from Friday evening 9 September to Sunday 11 September exploring the mystery of being. As we become more still and peaceful we can begin to perceive and experience the magic and mystery of life and being in unimagined ways. Follow the link for detailed schedule and information about attending.

In the Diamond Approach, we see that the black essence of our true nature can appear as immensity and power, or as stillness and peace. It has a profound stilling effect on our inner noise and can erase the barriers that stop us being intimate with out experience. As we become more quiet and perceive with less noise, we can begin to discover the mysterious depth in everything we experience, an unknowable and inexhaustible mystery that our hearts long for.


For more information, please contact us.

Join teachers Dom and Sarala and our group of inner world explorers for a weekend deep dive discovering your inner ocean.

Harness elements of the depth of meditation, the insight of psychology and the relevance to life of coaching.

You’ll engage some meditation and sensing practices to enter and awaken to your inner world. Then receive some teaching to orient you towards a particular exploration. Dive in with inquiry exercises to explore and understand yourself in a deep and transformative way.

“The understanding is not mental or intellectual comprehension but a direct awareness and experience of oneself that is insightful and clear. It opens the door to a profound and intimate relationship with what it means to be a human being.”
– A.H. Almaas, Spacecruiser Inquiry, page 10

“I myself can recommend the Diamond Approach as probably the most balanced of the widely available spiritual psychologies/therapies.”

– Ken Wilber

Future Dates

Diamond Approach South Africa (DASA) is South Africa’s first and only Diamond Approach group. Each weekend is a dive in to the inner world to explore different qualities of our human nature, using the practices of meditation, sensing and inquiry.

This unique exploration encompasses our lives, the psychological elements of our histories and the direct, immediate sensations of our awareness or consciousness as it takes on different qualities.

The 2022 September retreat will be on Zoom, but November 2022 will be in person with Dom and Sarala in Cape Town. We are planning that all the long weekends in 2023 will be in-person.
