A Know Thy Self Intensive offers a distinct method of personal growth. This is not a religion, a branch of Zen or Yoga, or part of any other system, it does not offer any guarantees or promised results, instead this pure practice offers a place to explore the ultimate questions of existence with practical guidance at each step.
We use Koans mixed with Dyads to come to a place of dIrect experience of the truth. The goal of a Koan is not to arrive at an answer, its to arrive at a direct knowing through the experience of the truth.
Self Inquiry. Who Am I? That's the question we start with and and more importantly the answer that we need to discover. This time tested process we offer is world renowned and has many positive side effects, it’s a self inquiry journey to the depths of your being. We use a unique process called "Dyads", a partner assisted form of meditation, that over 600,000 have participated in. We use Koans mixed with Dyads to come to a place of direct experience of the truth. The goal of a Koan is not to arrive at an answer, its to arrive at a direct knowing through the experience of the truth. Note, not everyone reaches enlightenment, but most participants feel they have gained substantial insight into themselves, extremely valuable time for your life
Many have noted that knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. When we know who we are, this place of wisdom naturally extends into our personal, as well as our professional life. It's quite possibly the most important question we could ask ourselves. When we embark on finding our true self, we face the veil that keeps us from reality of each moment. Through the process we will peel layers of the onion to get to the core, and direct experiences are possible. When we know who we are and create a life from that place, we have a life that's more fulfilling. We make decisions more and more from that one, we naturally want to live from Who we are, our relationship's with the ones we love and others can benefit immensely from this as well.
The Enlightenment Intensive technique. was developed by Charles Burner, The teachings have been passed down through his lineage of teachers and I have studied extensively (18 years), with Lawrence Noyes who was Charles main teacher at The Dyad school Of Enlightenment, through my years of training and facilitating this program, from seeing many transformations along the way, I know this work can help impact anyone's life in a positive way. Come out give it a try, or do it from the comfort of your own home as i will be offering in home retreats! This exact method has helped many reach full authentic awakenings for decades.

I have been looking to reach a place of inner peace for a long time. I came to this Intensive thinking that perhaps I will find the answer to a question that I have been struggling with for quite some time. "Who Am I?" is the question that has been on my mind. The process followed during this intensive didn't only allow me to answer that question but most importantly brought me to the most amazing place. I now not only know who I am, I have reached a state of inner peace, freedom, gratefulness and happiness. It is truly a wonderful place to be. If everyone could reach this place of enlightenment, the world would defiantly be a better place. I recommend this program to everyone. It is a must. Thank you for guiding me to this awakening. My life will never be the same again. To a new beginning. Mae
This Intensive is the most valuable time I have ever given to myself. After searching for answers for so long, I have now realized where the answers are... within me and they always will be. Even after a few challenges this week coming up to the experience that almost prevented me from coming, I kept wanting to come and asking the Universe to send me... and it did. I now see and feel the value of every moment and breath. Its only the beginning but I am able to TRULY begin to see... Who I Am.
Thank you. Dave Sharp
My view of Intensives now is that they really cant solve interpersonal relationship problems directly, but they can get you in touch with who you really are, with that place that is at your center, and which is your home. And from that place, anything is possible. You can conquer your worst problems. I've seen a lot of people, go through this process, and that is the main thing people get. People who experience their real self can then live from it. They don't have to worry so much about what others think. They can be who they are and go where they want with that. I actually don't know how people can go on without knowing who they are. Knowing who you are is not just a benefit, its essential to the growth process, and to whatever you do in life.
