Enlightenment Intensive

An Enlightenment Intensive

Go HERE for the 2013 Enlightenment Intensive



~  An Invitation to the AUTHENTIC YOU ~

Have You Ever Thought….

Who Am I, really?

What is Life all about?

Is there more to life than this?

Have you longed for a deeper connection to others?

The Gift of Awakening is based on the world-renowned Enlightenment Intensive Technique developed by Charles Berner in 1968. It is based on the ancient Zen koans, along with modern-day methods of partnered contemplation (dyad). This is combined with communication techniques that allow you to delve deeply into the Truth of who you are. Enlightenment Intensives have changed the lives of thousands of people from all walks of life all over the world. This 4-1/2 day residential retreat is an investment in what is most important and essential, and precious in your life – YOU! It is a process of direct, open inquiry that allows you to awaken profoundly and achieve an astonishing fresh perspective on you and your world – and to draw your own conclusions for yourself. It provides you with an extraordinary opportunity to learn to look ‘within’ and to find REAL answers for yourself.   There is no philosophy, no religion, no special teachings, just YOU and the discovery of your true‘authentic’ self. It is that simple!

By letting go of who you aren’t – who you are, is revealed.  It is an amazing journey of ‘self’ discovery.

  Benefits derived from attending this amazing event:

  • Experience a breakthrough in your ability to listen to others
