Diamond Approach

MarkoRinck uitsnedeWelcome to my website! Here you can find information about the Diamond Approach and my work as a Diamond Approach teacher in the Ridhwan School. I teach the Diamond Approach to groups and give private sessions in Amsterdam, Nederland (both in Dutch and English).

The Diamond Approach is a contemporary spiritual path which helps us explore the mystical depths of reality, while living a fulfilling life in the world. According to the teaching of the Diamond Approach we have endless possibilities to experience life and ourselves. And with its practice of inquiry we experience these possibilities and also look at the different ways that we, often unconsciously, limit these possibilities.

In inquiry we stay with what is moment-to-moment true in our direct experience and ask questions about its meaning. This opens up a natural unfolding towards more openness, consciousness and our real selves. Our awareness of our body serves as a direct entrance to our moment-to-moment experience and therefore to this unfolding of True Nature. In deeper layers of truth inquiry takes us from knowledge to mystery. Our inner compass points the way to simply being present: The more we are what is true in the moment, the more the mystery opens.

Ridhwan School

The Diamond Approach is taught in the Ridhwan School to groups in size of 40 to 120 students and to individuals in private sessions. The Ridhwan School has about 150 teachers and 5000 students worldwide. Students practice meditation, exercise sensing presence and do open-ended inquiry, a moment-to-moment investigation into the truth of their experience. This form of inquiry is also used in private sessions with a Ridhwan teacher.

A.H. Almaas

The Diamond Approach teaching is beautifully expressed in twenty books written by A.H. Almaas, one of the founders of the Ridhwan School. A good introductory book to the Diamond Approach is The Unfolding Now by A.H. Almaas. The latest book from A.H. Almaas is called Runaway Realization.
