The Wonder of the Heart

The Wonder of the Heart

With A.H. Almaas and Thomas Hübl  •  Recorded Thurs. January 27, 2022

A Community Conversation Facilitated by Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo

“The mind creates the abyss, and the heart crosses it.” — Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Join us for this special conversation between A.H. Almaas, founder of the Diamond Approach to Self-realization and Thomas Hübl, founder of the Academy of Inner Science.

In this meeting between two leading contemporary spiritual teachers we will explore:

  • Healing the gap between the mind and the heart
  • The path from fragmentation to integration
  • Tapping into our sensing/body intelligence
  • Our potential for healing/realization

In today’s world of fast-food spirituality, we can get caught in the illusion of finding a spiritual ‘fix’ for the challenges of life. In this conversation, we will look at the notion of integrated spirituality, and how effective spiritual practice needs time and space to be deeply nourishing, healing and sustainable. Join us to explore what it means to commit to a spiritual path and to live with an awakened heart.

You can participate in this event by donation; suggested donation is $25. Your contribution will go to support the nonprofit organizations SAND and Ridhwan School, as well as the Academy of Inner Science.

A Special Conversation with A.H. Almaas and Thomas Hübl

Jan 27, 2022 10:00am - 11:30am PST

Duration: 1 hours, 33 minutes

A.H. Almaas

Hameed Ali (A. H. Almaas), Founder of the Diamond Approach, was born in the Middle East, but at age 18 he moved to the USA to study at the University of California in Berkeley. Hameed was working on his Ph.D. in physics, where he was studying Einstein's theory of general relativity and nuclear physics, when he reached a turning point in his life and destiny that led him more and more into inquiring into the psychological and spiritual aspects of human nature. Hameed is the founder of the Diamond Approach®—a spiritual teaching that utilizes a unique kind of inquiry into realization, where the practice is the expression of realization. Freedom is living our realization, a dynamic enlightenment where our transcendent nondual truth lives personally in the world. This inquiry opens up the infinite creativity of our Being, transforming our lives into a runaway realization, moving from realization to further realization. Almaas' books include: Love Unveiled, Unfolding Now, and The Keys to the Enneagram.
