Diamond
 Heart
 Retreat 
Group 
5

The
 Ridhwan® 
Foundation 
is
 pleased
 to 
announce

 the
 formation
 of 
DIAMOND 
HEART 
RETREAT
 GROUP 
5,

 an 
ongoing 
group 
meeting
 at 
Guest
 House
 in
 Connecticut,

 which began in
 March
 2014.

“The 
joy
 of 
inquiry 
is 
both
 the 
longest 
and 
the
 shortest
 trip 
you 
will
 ever 
take.
 You 
travel 
simply 
as 
far 
as
 you
 must 
go 
to
 be 
where
 you 
already 
are.”
 A.H.
 Almaas

The
 Diamond 
Approach®
 offers
 an 
investigation 
of
 Reality
 and
 a
 method
 of
 working
 on 
oneself
 that 
leads
 to 
increased
 understanding,
 spiritual
 maturity
 and
 liberation.
 Developed
 by
 A.
H.
 Almaas 
and
 drawing
 on 
both
 modern
 psychology
 and 
traditional
 wisdom
 teachings, 
it
 is 
a 
path
 for
 those 
living
 in
 the 
world,
 supporting 
self ­realization
 while
 addressing
 challenges
 on
 the 
path.



As 
a 
contemporary 
spiritual 
teaching, 
the 
Diamond
 Approach 
considers
 the
 totality 
of 
the 
human 
being. 
It 
welcomes 
us 
as 
we 
are 
and 
guides 
us
 toward 
taking 
the 
natural 
next 
steps 
in 
actualizing 
our 
potential 
for 
more
 aliveness,
 intimacy,
 clarity,
 depth, 
and
 engagement
 with
 our 
lives.


Diamond
 Heart
 Retreats 
are 
long‐term
 Diamond
 Approach
 groups
 which
 meet
 twice 
a
 year
 for
 eight
 days 
each.
 This 
international
 residential
 retreat 
format 
serves
 those 
without
 access 
to 
a 
local
 group 
or
 whose 
life
 circumstances
 need
 such 
a
 format.
 Our 
experience
 with 
the 
previous 
four
 Diamond
 Heart
 Retreat
 groups 
is 
that
 this 
format 
is 
a 
rich
 and
 powerful
 way 
of
 working
 on 
oneself.
