Is An EI Right For Me?
Do you feel different or alone on
your spiritual path? Do you want to feel less isolated, more “at home"?
Do you want to live more connected
to yourself, life, and others?
More alive and vibrant?
Do you find it difficult to find and speak your truth, and/or to listen to another without noticing your own judgements?
Are you reflecting on your life and
want to make sense of things?
Find meaning or purpose?
Have you been on a spiritual journey for a
long time and are waiting for a life-changing enlightenment experience?
Are you are a seeker who is not interested in being “taught" religious beliefs, rather you want to awaken to the truth yourself directly?
Are you willing to take four days away from your work, family, phones and computers? To put in work to get tangible results?
An EI may NOT be right for you if:
You follow strict religious dogma, believe you know what the "Truth” is, and will not explore your own experience
You just want to relax, have some "downtime", or take a vacation
You are not motivated to go within and inquire into deep questions like: "Who am I?", "What am I?", "What is life?" or "What is another?”, or “What is love?
You cannot take four uninterrupted days away from family or work
Enlightenment Intensive Retreat
Of all the tools of transformation available, the Enlightenment Intensive Retreat is undoubtedly the Power Tool. Normally in life, we distract ourselves from truth. Life is just that way, until perhaps we hit a major life crisis or find ourselves suffering enough that we’ll do anything to be happy again. With this work, you can realize this wisdom from Hafiz…...
"All your pain, worry, sorrow will someday
apologize and confess they were a great lie."
During a residential retreat free from normal distractions and with supportive encouragement, we can more easily hold an intention to directly know the truth about who or what we are, what another is, what life is, what love is. Within a sacred space of total support, guidance, and deep contact, we focus only on enlightenment on an Enlightenment Intensive Retreat, thereby greatly increasing the probability for conscious direct knowing of Truth through this focused self-inquiry. The freedom that arises from union is the home-coming for which we all long.
The structure of the retreat combines a Zen-like koan and silent contemplation with a western communication model called a dyad, where two people sit across from each other alternating as listener or contemplator and communicator about five minutes each for a forty-five minute exercise. A technique is taught to dissolve mind, to break through the usual barriers into enlightenment. Intensive days are full with dyads interspersed with silent walks, meals, rest, meditation, snacks, and exercise. Experienced support staff are always available for instruction, guidance, and encouragement.
"You shall know the truth,
And the truth shall set you free."
"The journey to God is merely the reawakening of the knowledge of
where you are always, and what you are forever. It is a journey without distance
to a goal that has never changed."
