The Enlightenment Intensive could fairly be called a cutting edge breakthrough in the technology of spiritual seeking. It is a modern wonder in the resolution of an ancient quest. The "dyad", the form of two seekers sitting directly across from one another, amplifies the consciousness at work exponentially. In solo, silent sitting meditation, one is faced with ones own mind, which he created. Since the individual created his own mind himself, it's power is almost equal to it's creator's. In timer may finally breakthrough the barrier of the mind that he created, and there then, is Union.


In the dyad, two seekers team up against one mind. But the power of two working together is much greater than the sum of two working apart. In solo meditation, one simply watches the thoughts, feelings, sensations, etc, rise up and pass on, only to return. In the dyad, the contemplator expresses what comes up to the very attentative listening partner, who does their best to understand. When true understanding between two individuals occurs, mind is released, and is much more likely to stay away. All of our stories, our thoughts, feelings, hurts, frustrations, beliefs, perceptions (and on and on), are a result of pieces of information, like mail, that we picked up, but either never opened, or understood, or replied to, or just simply deleted. (Our Inbox is stuffed and overflowing, leaving a burdensome feeling about the unfinished business that awaits us.) 

It is the power of two conscious beings working together, and the clearing of old baggage through conscious communication and understanding, that sets this practice apart from practically all others. It is our experience that nothing comes close in speed and depth, as this technique produces. And so many, including yoga masters, ex-Zen monks, shamans, therapists, etc. who have spent years in ashrams in India, or decades sitting still and being quiet (all valuable experiences for sure) agree that nothing else quite measures up. You owe it to yourself to try and Enlightenment Intensive.



October 26th - 30th

At the heart of all spiritual traditions lies the fundamental question, “Who am I?” For three incredibly focused days, inside a tight, safe and sacred container, the EI participant holds and cares for the question like a newborn baby, in search of the Absolute Truth of Who They Are.

Answers do come in the form of insights. Healings occur. Hearts burst open as masks are finally dropped. Conscious connection with others is experienced, often for the first time. Ecstatic energetic experiences, uncontrollable laughter...the vast array of experiences is uncanny.

As wonderful as they all may be, the one and only purpose of an Enlightenment Intensive is to Directly Experience the Absolute Truth of Who You Are. The answer is You.
