Who We Are

Chris Krueger, an ordained Teacher of the Diamond Approach, created Crystal Soul Work as an expression of the teachings of the Ridhwan School® – a spiritual organization that guides its student using the Diamond Approach to inner realization. As a contemporary spiritual teaching, the Diamond Approach considers the totality of the human being and allows students to explore their true selves.

In addition to his traditional Diamond Approach teaching format and private practice Chris uses activities like Skiing and Beekeeping as vehicles, to assist in guiding his students in self-remembering, meditation and inquiry practices for moving into, exploring and experiencing the true self.

Chris has been deeply engaged in the Diamond Approach for over 30 years and is committed to exploring the truth of who we are. He has an intense interest in the discovery of the most authentic self.

What We Do

The Diamond Approach includes meditations, movement, experiential exercises and discussions. It is taught in large and small group settings and in private session with Diamond Approach teachers.

The journey into the absolute heart of reality and its integration into our daily life is fundamental to waking up to the truth of who we are.

You cannot make yourself grow; you can only cease to interfere. You cannot make yourself happy; you can only stop your judgments; Growth and expansion are natural; they are the life force itself. And you cannot predict its directions.

You are the living universe as the universe lives through you.

“The Human Being is a wonderful mystery, the more we know about this mystery the more we realize how little we know. It is a joy to know ourselves and others, to actualize more of our infinite possibilities and to extend our humanity to its farthest horizons.”
