The Diamond Path V –
Pure Perception and the Spontaneous Activity of Awake Awareness

A One Day Online Retreat

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 21  |  9:30 AM – 12:00 PM and 2:00 – 4:30 PM


This retreat is a companion to the Fall Course of the same name.  It provides an opportunity to practice using our creative intelligence of Awake Awareness as a means to access Pure Perception, abide in the unified field, and transform our relationship with experience as it unfolds. Although it is not necessary to have attended the previous courses to participate, this retreat assumes a familiarity with the practices of the Diamond Path and non-dual awareness.

This form of practice is the special distinguishing feature of the Diamond Path. It is known to bring about swift transformation and deep awakening. In the practice, first we dissolve our habitual identity and conditioned world view into emptiness and then replace it with an enlightened identity and environment – pervasive purity, translucence, vibrant energy, light, wisdom and love.  We use ‘creative imagination’ to access the deeper truth about ourselves which is usually veiled by conceptual ignorance, self-doubts, wrong views, and (at least) a life time of conditioning.  In other words, the practice is a simple and effective way to experience your enlightened nature right now.

The practice also introduces us to enlightened activity which is the spontaneous expression of altruistic intention and interconnection within the unified field of Awareness and its vast network of interdependence. We will use these methods to engage directly with the challenges facing us today, using the energy of chaos and difficulty as the fuel for deeper awakening.

While I have read and received direct path teachings before, the addition – or the clear pointing out of the heart element – deepened and made more vivid my experience. Incredible.

Sharing the retreat with a group in this setting was so important and uplifting. Result – stronger understanding of awake awareness. Highly recommended. The best teachers with years of experience who actually care about your experience.
– Diane, 5-Day Retreat Participant
Thank you for such spacious, pointed teaching! The material, pacing and presentation (!!) continue to be first rate. The personal examples you give are always warmly humorous and helpful. Your passion for this practice mirrors your concern and care for us, your students and fellow practitioners. I watch my practice deepen and realization clarify while sensing the same maturation in my fellow class mates.
