About Longer Intensives

For many people three-day Enlightenment Intensives end just when they are starting to get interesting. On the final day participants often find themselves in a new realm, one where contemplation is no longer foreign or forced but spontaneous, natural and real. The dyads flow on a deeper level. Contact is profound. The power and significance of the work have become self-evident.

But then the Intensive comes to an end. Formality and discipline lift; contemplation subsides and participants begin to contract out of the expanded state they were just beginning to enjoy.

A seven or eight-day intensive is for those who want to stay on and continue the inquiry at the level they have attained at the end of the third day. So it is an opportunity go on out into realms you always had to turn your back on before; and experience whatever arises as contemplation deepens day after day after day. It is a simple and very pure life. You are supported and nourished by the structure and fellowship of the intensive. Your only mandate and concern is to continue opening to the truth and communicating your experience, whatever it is.

Personally I love long Intensives. I love having the time to sink deeply into a contemplating mode of life. I love living the quest; day after day in a company of committed others. Forcing and striving are replaced by acceptance and curiosity. Anxiety and pressure give way to the spaciousness of unfolding reality. Devotion and surrender arise. One's intention is simply to welcome the Truth whatever it is; however it is! To me this is the essence of the work. It is an intrinsically meaningful, satisfying and appropriate activity. There is the opportunity to face, understand and resolve issues in a deep way.

 

Long Enlightenment Intensives are not easy. There are barriers and crises to face. But I feel they genuinely benefit those who choose to do them. They involve a deep confrontation with illusion and a level of work which can profoundly affect participants' lives. If the prospect appeals to you I hope you will join us.
