2019 NEW YEAR Enlightenment Intensive with Yoah Wexler
28 December - 3 January 2019
Adelaide, South Australia
6.5 Days or 4.5 Days
Dyad Rainbow

At the Enlightenment Intensive retreat you are encouraged to go beyond the realm of limited perceptual knowledge and enter into the realm

of Absolute Consciousness where duality is dissolved.

Some call it No Mind, Buddha Nature or Christ Consciousness.
It's where the knower and the known merge into union

This is the place where separation ceases to exist.
This is the home of Non-Duality and Love.

with love

True Heart True Mind Enlightenment Intensive with Joseph Rubano
March 28 — April 1, 2019
Manzanita Village Retreat Center, Warner Springs, CA 92086
Joseph Rubano

The Intensive:


Where else do people meet like this — directly, simply, whispering secrets, looking behind the mask, willing to come out of hiding, willing to see and be seen? Where else can you be fully and completely who and how you are?

Who are you really? What are you anyway?

In this wild time that we live in, where the ground beneath us is always shifting, by meeting like this we are creating a new ground in the field of our hearts.

“This is all we ever have —
 This holy ground we walk on;
 The way we make it holy
 By our walking”


Come be part of this ever new, never finished, ground-making work.

The Intensive: a process that brings out the best in you. An experience that nourishes the deep roots of being and keeps many of us coming back for more.

Cost: $650 for tuition, housing and meals (simple, delicious vegetarian meals and snacks). $200 deposit required to hold a space.

To register: call or email Joseph at 760-576-7573,

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. ("What am I?" is also an available question, usually offered to those who have already taken an EI, or on the approval or advice of the facilitator.)

The 2019 Senior Monitor and Masters Training Courses
With Lawrence Noyes and Staff
Seattle, Washington July 14-20, 2019

From Lawrence: These two trainings were created by Charles Berner and I took the trainings with him in 1978. I wasn’t sure what I was
getting into but half way through I had the experience ‘I could do this.’ This got me started in spite of all I had yet to learn going forward.

This training is not just a teaching of information, it is a training and transmission designed to give you the basics of this
work and awake in you first the Senior Monitor and then, if you open to it, the Master, so that your journey can ignite.

• Senior Monitor Training Course

Train to be a Senior Monitor on
Enlightenment Intensives!

For details see:


• The Enlightenment Intensive
Masters Training Course

A powerful training developed over forty-five years for those ready to step into organizing and giving Enlightenment Intensives

This comprehensive course awakens the Master within you and trains you in the basic skills you’ll need for managing all aspects of an Enlightenment Intensive.

For details see:

From Lawrence: Learning this work and integrating it into yourself so it comes from you is a long term process. If you are drawn to either of these trainings let’s discuss how you can make the best use of the time before July of 2019 when the seven-day training begins. We can go over any questions you have and get aligned in this rich project you are undertaking.
