2017 New Year's Eve Enlightenment Intensive with Yoah Wexler, PhD
6.5 Days or 4.5 Days
30 Dec 2016 - 5 Jan 2017
Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Yoah summer flowers

Dear Friends of Enlightenment and Love,

Thank you for Breath
Thank you for Birth
Thank you for Life
Thank you for this opportunity to Awaken My Heart

How many days of Life and Breath we have, no one knows!
Is it wise to wait until the end of breath to begin realizing who you are?
Is it wise to wait until the end of life to begin awakening?

I think not.

Who is it that is the seeker of pleasure?
Who is it that is playing hide and seek with others?

It may be Time for you to Reveal your Buddha Nature.
It may be Time for you to Reveal your Christ Nature.
It may be Time for you to Reveal your True Nature.

Yes, It is Time.
Now is the Time.
Now is the only Time.

To put it off is foolish.
To deny your Truth is ignorance.

Tell me who you are.
Now.

"Seek to know yourself. Practice self-inquiry by asking yourself , 'Who am I,' then you will know everything."
~ Ramana Maharshi

This is a residential, monastic style retreat. For this long weekend prepare to leave the outside world behind and delve into yourself.

By letting go of the external search for happiness, we allow the technique to open and prepare us for the possibility of experiencing our true nature directly. Experiencing the authentic self we reconnect with the eternal happiness, contentment and peace within.


The Retreat environment is a supportive, focused, intense and self empowering sacred space that softens what is rigid and inflexible in our bodies and minds. It awakens openness, trust, joy, acceptance, love and understanding which allows for profound transformation.

About the Retreat: The True Heart/True Mind Enlightenment Intensive Retreat is a modern day Initiation process; a method intended to awaken in the participant
an unobstructed view into the way things are; to somehow come to sense/know, beyond our common way of thinking and perceiving, the vast field of awareness and
love that is our home and true nature. In this Initiation, the Mystery Center is not a building or a place; it is continually being created within the space of meeting, by
the very substance of meeting of one human being with another. It is a journey of self-discovery that a group of people goes on together.

Tell me Who you are. Tell me What you are.

The True Heart True Mind Enlightenment Intensive Retreat is a masterful process, combining communication with meditation, for creating the possibility of
having a direct knowing of the Truth of one’s essential Being. With this direct knowing our life becomes new and from then on we always have access to that
‘light seed grain inside.’ In addition, the direct contact with many different people tends to improve our ability to relate in an honest and authentic way and to make
us more available and capable of love and connection.

The True Mind True Heart Intensive is one of the most powerful and valuable courses I've ever participated in. The after effects penetrate all aspects of my life. It is quickly becoming a mainstay of "continuing education" for my profession as well as my quest for personal and spiritual evolution.

~ DT. Author, Coach and Healer – EI April 2016



If you are looking for an experience that will create a shift in the way you view yourself, your relationship to Life and to the Path, I highly recommend this process.

~ Theresa C, teacher – EI November 2011



I want to say that the Enlightenment Intensive has changed my life. The separation from the mechanical mind has been deeply effected by the beautifully painful process. My soul is so full of joy and something that I have longed for and striven towards my whole adult life, "a direct experience of the divine being, me" Thank you for the service and dedication to humanity.

~ Kayren P. massage therapist – EI October 2015

*The retreat is the standard 3-day Intensive. We stay over Sunday night, let the experience continue to ripen and do an integration morning on Monday which includes
meditation, writing, drawing, and sharing. This last morning brings many unexpected gifts and helps us make a bridge into the everyday world we are about to return to.


**If money is an issue, talk to me, we can work something out. Ask about senior discount if you need it.

This is a monastic style, 3 day residential retreat, being led by Cynthia Spillman and Patsy Boyer.
The Mt. Baldy Zen Center is steeped in years of contemplative practice; it is simple, austere, and rustic.

All are welcome to attend!

The Enlightenment Intensive provides a place to clear away what is between us and what is actually real. It combines the ancient Zen approach of koan contemplation,
such as “Who am I?”, with communication to a partner in ‘dyads’. The aim is some degree of enlightenment, the penetrating breakthroughs in consciousness known in
Zen as kensho or satori.

 
The Enlightenment Intensive is a precious gem in the realm of my lifelong spiritual practices. I use the technique in my daily life to clear obstacles, open my mind and imagination to be present with what’s most important. This practice has made me a better friend, a better listener, more kind, more successful, happier and more confident, The work is challenging, empowering, revelatory and entirely, 100% worth it”.   ~ Gillian Clark, Owner of Swerve Studio

 

"The Enlightenment Intensive completely changed my life, my relationship to myself, to the world, and to others! Before in my life, I felt like an aimless wanderer, without a center. It was like my life was permeated with a fog or a vagueness.
Now, no matter the external or or internal circumstances, I know that I always have myself. That is always here. This awareness gives me the strength to be up against the unknowing without fear.”   ~ Peter S., CA, age 25
