Wisdom of Life and Death is a DVD presentation of a 10-day retreat given by A.H. Almaas, originator of the Diamond Approach®. This is the first retreat he has released to the public. The proceeds from sales go to the End of Life group in support of the Ridhwan School.
These 18 lectures, which include exercises as well as comments and questions by attendees, address progressively deeper spiritual, psychological and physical aspects of the death of the ego, as well as of the body. The subject is presented within the context of the Diamond Approach, a spiritual map developed by A. H. Almaas that draws on contemporary depth psychology. Presented in 1999, Wisdom of Life & Death provides an in-depth understanding of life, so we can cherish every moment of it.
