As you fix your gaze upon Another
And wonder deeply into the Mystery of Life
You can see directly into your Soul
And find your Best Friend
Looking back at you.

Still your mind
Relax your body
Open your heart
And feel deeply into Presence.

I invite you to explore the potency of the Enlightenment Intensive
and it's power to energise your Spiritual Evolution.

with love

Calgary Enlightenment Intensive with Trevor Thibodeau
April 5th – 9th, 2018
Sanctum Retreat, Caroline, Alberta, Canada

Trevor E.I. April 8th, 2018 Sanctum Retreat, Alberta

Trevor Thibodeau

DATES: April 5th – 9th, 2018

COST: $797.00
Four night accommodation, all meals and sessions

LOCATION: Sanctum Retreat
Caroline, Alberta, Canada

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.

Answers do come in the form of insights. Healings occur. Hearts burst open as masks are finally dropped. Conscious connection with others is
experienced, often for the first time. Ecstatic energetic experiences, visions, uncontrollable laughter...the vast array of experiences is uncanny. 

As wonderful as they all may be, the one and only purpose of an Enlightenment Intensive is to Directly Experience the Absolute Truth of Who You Are.
The answer is You.

Enlightenment Intensive with Shankara Newton

Hello dear friends,

Our next Enlightenment Intensive will be May 17th — May 20th, 2018, (Optional integration day on Monday May 21st (until 11:30 a.m.)

For those who have not heard of or participated in an Intensive, it is a weekend long retreat that focuses on the Truth and the discovery of Who you are. It is a unique approach that combines the best of two worlds, the spiritual and contemplative traditions of the East, with the psychological and cathartic traditions of the West. It is a powerful tool for creating profound change and total transformation in our lives.

The majority of us spend our time believing that what defines us are the roles that we play or how we show up in the world. We live our entire lives through the filter of our preconceived ideas and concepts as well as the expectations of those around us. As a result, we gradually lose touch with our authentic sense of self while living with the frustration of knowing our lives reflect only a fraction of our true potential. We come to feel that we have been denied the happiness and love that we know are possible, yet we are often clueless as to how it can be obtain. Life continues on at the same pace with the same struggles until something truly changes.

The Enlightenment Intensive can provide the very opportunity that we have been seeking, the purpose of which is to have a breakthrough into or an enlightenment experience of our True Nature. It is a highly unique and powerful method that fosters the kind of immediate and very dramatic change that is rarely available to us when we remain immersed in our often busy, hectic lives. By realizing our essential Self, we can experience a level of joy and fulfillment that we have always yearned for. When no longer held captive by the imagined stories and insecurities in our mind, the heavens will open up and grace can rain down on our lives.

I invite you to join us for this blessed journey towards the Truth.
