  • Alchemy and the Truth Body

  • A Diamond Approach Perspective

  • With Leslie Chyten

  • November 6 & 7, 2010

  • Alchemy is the ancient science and art of transmuting base metal into precious gold. Alchemy is also the process of transforming human consciousness from its base substance to its divine potential. The transformative element is truth. Using the orientation and wisdom of the Diamond Approach, we will explore the ‘alchemical process’ in a personal and immediate way.

    Based on the teachings of A.H. Almaas, the Diamond Approach is a modern spiritual path known for the depth of realization reached by many students. The Diamond Approach combines Western psychological theories with deep experiential practices from spiritual traditions such as Sufism and Buddhism. The synergy between psychodynamic methods and traditional spiritual practices accelerates and intensifies the process of realization.

    This retreat is part two of a two-part series taught by Leslie Chyten, a Diamond Approach teacher who works with groups in Boston, New York, Toronto and Connecticut. The retreat is open to all, one need not attend course one in order to register for course two.
