Thank you so much for your warm reception to those of you who attended the IEA conference in San Antonio this summer. A lot of interest was expressed following my keynote speech about the transformative work I described, the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization, and how it can help us transform the territory the map of the enneagram elucidates. In response, I am considering starting a new on-going group and want to gauge interest in such a project.
The group will meet twice a year for a week-long retreat at a venue on the West Coast of the U.S. The format will include meditation, lectures on the Diamond Approach that will sometimes include the enneagram, interactive exercises exploring the material personally, private process sessions, small group process meetings, and movement work. My co-leader will be Joyce Lyke, a long-time Diamond Approach teacher with deep roots in the Consciousness Movement, and other Diamond Approach teachers will assist.
If you are interested, please send me an email to email@example.com, and you will be put on a list for further information as the group develops. There is no commitment necessary at this time-we are just trying to find out if there is enough interest to begin making arrangements. Please respond by November 30th, 2017.
