The following Events include group retreats, personal retreats, and ongoing training sessions.

The retreat process offers individuals or groups of people an experience that brings about a deeper communion and awakening in life, a feeling of well being, and also healing. You will work with a carefully trained retreat guide using techniques of meditation, breath, sound, light, magnetism and presence, to soften and deepen the experience of the heart, releasing new energy and vitality into your life. Healing can happen in the body, the mind, and the feelings. It can renew the soul and spirit. It can also affect your relationship with your self, with others, and with all of life. 

What will I do on a healing retreat? When you are on a healing retreat you dedicate a number of days of your life to do healing practices in an intensive manner. You will work with a carefully trained retreat guide, with practices specifically designed for you, in a setting conducive to healing.

Exploring Inner Guidance

The Diamond Body


Rochester, New York

May 3, 4 and 5, 2019


Mahdiah Esther Jacobs Kahn

The Diamond Logos work explores Being through understanding the different dimensions of the One and the barriers that keep us from opening to those essential states that are our True Being. Using presence, inquiry, breath and sound, we will open to grounding ourselves in our True Being and becoming who we are really meant to be.

The Diamond Body is a vehicle for allowing us to access an inner state of objective guidance or diamond guidance.

Mahdiah Esther Jacobs Kahn is a senior teacher in the Diamond Logos work. She is an experienced psychotherapist who received her MSW from New York University in 1966. She is also a senior teacher and retreat guide in the Inayati Order of Sufism.
