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

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.
