Webinar Series

Diamond Essence Australia (DEA) is running a series of webinars over 2017, with the theme of Exploring Who We Really Are. These webinars are free, stand alone, and different teachings, and are open to everyone. Participants can do one, a few, or all.

The webinars will introduce Diamond Approach teachings and experience with core Diamond Approach practices such as Inquiry, and "Sensing, Looking, and Listening".

Each webinar starts with some form of meditation or sensing experience and is followed by a specific teaching related to the theme of the webinar. There is also an opportunity to deepen your personal understanding through an individual inquiry process that is sensitive to your confidentiality and mindful of the open nature of the group.

When are these webinars?

The two-hour webinars are from 11am to 1pm (NZ time). The following webinar is currently scheduled:
  • The Magnetism of Love (27 May)
