Diamond Inquiry and the Essential Aspects
Diamond inquiry is the radical transformative technology of the Diamond Approach, sometimes described as combining Freud and Buddha. It is a way of exploring inner experience that leads to profound discoveries of the nature of our beingness, and the liberation of that being from the psychological conditioning and structuring of history, ignorance and misunderstanding. Inquiry as a practice draws on all our capacities, and in this retreat we will learn to engage five different qualities to power up the practice: joy, strength, will, kindness and power. These are the qualities of what are called the five lataif: the yellow essence, the red essence, the white essence, the green essence and the black essence.
This retreat is open to all students in the Diamond Approach Africa group, as well as to new students. New students will attend an orientation session before the retreat and are strongly recommended to read chapters 1-8 of Diving in the Inner Ocean by Dominic Liber in preparation for the retreat.
Anyone is free to register for this weekend, and no prior experience with the Diamond Approach is required.
