The Inner Flame
Sat, 5 Nov 2016, 10:00 – Sun, 6 Nov 2016, 17:00 GMT
Psychosynthesis Trust presents a Diamond Approach workshop with Tejo Jourdan.
Do we really love the truth, above all else?
What other gods than truth do we bow to?
What is truth?
Do we know how to find out where we are, what we are?
Can we allow the mystery of the depth of our Being to enthral us; burn us, completely consume us?
These are uncomfortable questions, but they are real questions that challenge our Reality, and penetrate the ordinary world.
Questions that can challenge the foundation of who and what we take ourselves to be.
They are questions that if we are asking them openly from our heart, can become all consuming, burning questions, that we can devote our life to.
These are questions that we cannot answer with our mind. We do not try to simply answer them mentally. These questions are like a flame. If we answer them with our mind, we will put out the flame.
The Inner Flame is not an analogy, it burns at the heart of each Soul. This real phenomenon is represented in all spiritual paths, it is why there are so many candles, torches lamps in churches and temples.
The Inner Flame is an actual manifestation, a Presence, which can be felt and known directly in our experience. We can actually experience an inner flame. A brightly burning flame as a presence in our heart.
In this weekend we will explore our flame for truth. Using exercises, inquiry, and the practice of Presence, we will look directly at our experience of the moment, orienting to our experience in such a way as to penetrate into it, open it, revealing the inherent truth.
We will begin to learn how inquiry, as we see it in the Diamond Approach is aligned with actual qualities of our being, thus freely revealing and unfolding our experience.

After several years in India he worked as a building contractor in California for 25 years, he is passionate about the practice of Presence and Inquiry in every day, ordinary life.
