With Richard Hunt
Richard is a retired psychologist; during the course of his career, he worked in the areas of chronic pain, addictions, relationship problems, and individual distress. He has been a student of the Diamond Approach (the Ridhwan School) since the mid 1990’s. The Diamond Approach is a path of self-realization that draws from Eastern and Western spiritual traditions and from modern psychology; its aim is to help students discover and actualize their most authentic self.
Richard has also studied Mahamudra meditation, participating in over a dozen retreats led by lamas and practitioners familiar with that view; in addition, he has participated in many Vipassana style meditation retreats. He has familiarity with a wide range of spiritual approaches.
