The Heart of Life – Courageous Heart

Fr., 19.1.2018, 18.30 h bis So., 21.1.2018, 14.00 h
( frei )

Course language English

We offer three ongoing weekends exploring The Heart of Life through the central practices of the Diamond Approach: practicing presence and open-ended inquiry; exploring through sensing and verbalizing experience. The Diamond Approach is a spiritual path of love for what is true and authentic.

Each weekend we will explore an Essential Aspect. Essence is not an object within ourselves; it is the true nature of who we are when we are relaxed and authentic, when we are not pretending to be one way or another.

Courageous Heart is willing to step out of the familiar and out of what is comfortable; it has the strength and courage to follow how life is changing, unfolding and optimizing. Keeping ourselves small we don't feel alive. It takes courage to go beyond the limits we set in our mind, heart and body. When we miss aliveness in our life, when we feel frustrated or bored it means we hit a limit. It needs courage to step out of our well known world into real life. Aligned with the life force we feel it as "this is my life, I am living it, I love it". When we are in touch with the thrill of life, we want it even if it is scary.
