What is a soul? What is a human being? What is reality? For over two decades, A. H. Almaas has been exploring these questions by developing the Diamond Approach®, a wholly original and integrative spiritual path that draws on the insights of Sufism, Buddhism, Gurdjieff, and other wisdom traditions, and combines those insights with the empirical lessons of modern psychological research. “If I am going to know the earth, I want to know it more from my heart, not through a microscope.” (hosted by Michael Toms)


A. H. Almaas interweaves clinical psychology and spiritual practices in a unique path to self-realization. He demystifies enlightenment, helping us to see it not as some mysterious event but rather as a down-to-earth, understandable process with definite stages and signposts. Since 1976, he has guided individuals and groups through his school of inner work, the Ridhwan School, which has branches in North America, Europe, and Australia.

He is the author of more than a dozen books, including:

  • The Pearl Beyond Price (Diamond Books 1988)
  • The Diamond Approach (Shambhala 1999)
  • The Inner Journey Home (Shambhala 2004)
  • Brilliancy: The Essence of Intelligence (Shambhala Publications 2006)
