"An innovative spiritual teacher shows how to use desire and passion as a gateway to realizing our full potential."
"A. H. ALMAAS is the pen name of A. Hameed Ali, the Kuwaiti-born originator of the Diamond Approach to the realization of our true nature--a spiritual path that integrates modern psychology with the insights of Sufism, Buddhism, Gurdjieff, and other wisdom traditions. Since 1976 he has guided individuals and groups through his school of inner work, the Ridhwan School, which has branches in California, Colorado, and Europe. KAREN JOHNSON is a longtime colleague of A. H. Almaas, with whom he cofounded the Diamond Approach. They have been teaching together for many years. Karen Johnson was educated as an artist and then received an MA in psychology."
