John V. Davis
John V. Davis’ primary interest is full human maturity and self-realization, with a special focus on the intersection of spirituality, psychology, and the natural world. He has been an ordained teacher of the Diamond Approach, a spiritual view and path, since 1983 (www.ridhwan.org). John’s book, The Diamond Approach: An Introduction to the Teachings of A. H. Almaas (Shambhala Publications, www.shambhala.com), is the first introductory overview of this canon of work. John teaches the Diamond Approach and trains teachers in Colorado and Vancouver. John is also a professor at Naropa University (www.naropa.edu), where he directs the low-residency M.A. programs in transpersonal psychology and ecopsychology, and teaches courses on ecopsychology, transpersonal psychology, wilderness therapy, and the Diamond Approach.
