DHUK 2022 07 – Inner Peace

Or log in to access your purchased courses

We are delighted that this is the first weekend that the Diamond Heart UK group that will be back in person since the beginning of the pandemic. DHUK was always intended as an in-person weekend group. Going forward, we are expecting to do four in-person weekends a year, and three online Zoom weekends.

In-Person Weekend in Clapham

Since Covid is on the rise again, we have surveyed registered participants and group members about attending in person. Over three quarters of those intending to participate indicated they would come in person, so we are happy to confirm that we will have the in-person weekend in Clapham as planned.

Daily Lateral Flow Test

Some of these people indicated that would prefer a daily lateral flow test (LFT or rapid antigen test) and some did not require it. We understand the limitations of LFTs in terms of accuracy, but the cost and hassle is low and the improvement in comfort and safety matters to enough people to make it worthwhile. Everyone who comes in person is required to do an LFT in the morning, from Thursday (the day before) to Sunday, not come if they test positive, or if they have symptoms regardless of the test result.

LFTs are available at low cost online from supermarkets or pharmacy chains in packs of five, or apparently they are for sale at the Tesco near the venue for £2 per test.

Please bring your test or a photo of your test with you each day.

Voluntary Masks or Social Distancing 

We will not be requiring mandatory masks or social distancing, so this will be up to everyone to manage for themselves. If you’d prefer not to be touched, we suggest wearing a prominent red name tag or something like that to indicate your preference. And we ask that everyone be respectful and check with other people’s boundaries before any physical closeness or contact, especially if their requirements are different than your own.

Bear in mind that with all precautions, there is still a risk of contracting the virus. The decision to attend is ultimately yours, and these are suggested guidelines only.

Zoom Attendance

The other quarter of survey respondents intending to participate would like to attend on Zoom if possible, and we are happy be able to offer Zoom participation due to the covid situation this time. Details are still being worked out, but certainly there will be a camera on the teacher, and someone to organise break out rooms for exercises.

If you will be attending on Zoom please inform Jona on Jona@Ridhwan.org, no later than Wednesday 13 July, so that we can determine how to arrange small groups (small groups are only for students who have already applied for group membership). Zoom links will be emailed out ahead of the weekend.

Please Register

If you haven’t already, please register for this weekend as soon as possible, preferably on or before Sunday 10 June. This is needed to arrange things with the venue, unlike for a Zoom-only retreat where it is fine to register last minute.

New Students’ Meeting 

If this is your first or second weekend with DHUK, you’re invited to an introductory Zoom meeting on Tuesday 12th July at 7.30 pm (link below), for around 60 – 75 minutes.

This is an optional meeting for those who’d like to come and are free that evening.

The meeting will be hosted by the three teachers Anne Marie, Penny and Kathryn. They are assisting the Diamond Heart UK group alongside the lead teachers Tejo, Dom, Zarina and Lisa. There will be a brief introduction to the Diamond Approach and its three main practices, some orientation to the group and the weekend, and also time for your questions.

Links will be provided on registration for the weekend, or have been sent to you if you are already registered.

Please contact Jona on Jona@Ridhwan.org with any questions about any of the above.
