You are invited to come to a monthly series on Zoom.
Each gathering combines two parts:
A presentation by an Osho Awareness Intensive Leader or by an Enlightenment Intensive Master (usually 40 minutes).
Two optional “Dyad” sessions (45 minutes each) where participants deepen their awareness and understanding of themselves, of life, of love, and of others.
The gatherings are free of charge.

For New People without Experience of Self-enquiry Dyads
As a new person, you are warmly invited to attend all the presentations which occur at the beginning of each monthly event. To participate in dyads in breakout rooms (the second part of each event), it will be necessary for you to be introduced to the particular dyad technique we use. There is an opportunity for this during the first dyad period so that you may then, if you wish, join the second dyad practice with another participant. For more information and an explanation of terms used, see ‘New to Dyads?’
With special thanks to Osha Reader, Lawrence Noyes, and Janeane Weprin for their support and suggestions. Dedicated to Murray Kennedy and Edrid for their inspiration and personal guidance. Dedicated to Osho.
If you have any queries, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each month an Awareness Intensive Leader from the Osho communities or an Enlightenment Intensive Master will present an informative and inspiring talk about various aspects of these intensives and of the dyad process.
“Awareness Intensive (AI)” is the name used in Osho communities; the process is the same as in other communities where they use the name “Enlightenment Intensive (EI)”.
Each monthly presentation will include the unique, and often inspiring, personal experiences of the presenter.
There are many benefits of these intensives, especially how they are an opportunity for you to discover and “directly experience” the truth of who and what you actually are, of what life is, of what love is, and of what others are.
This process is suitable for every sincere seeker of truth in their lives, regardless of religious or spiritual orientation. Care is taken so that no belief system is introduced or taught. Only a method is provided to facilitate effective and satisfying personal enquiry and experience.
These monthly gatherings started in April 2022, So far we’ve had presentations by Edrid (a student of Charles Berner, the creator of Enlightenment Intensives); Murray Kennedy leading a tribute to Jeff Love; Lawrence Noyes, Ganga and Garimo, Simone Anliker from Global Dyads, Zen Reverend Pitaka Christie Close, Forest Dalton, founder of the Love Intensive, Avikal Costantino, Colleen Santini, Smaran Stockard, Bill Savoie, Osha Reader, Russell Scott, Emma and Barry McGuinness, Murray Kennedy, Yoah Wexler and Doug Seeley.

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - presenter John Heron
John will be talking about what to do with and how to relate to your direct experience after the Intensive. When it's addressed at all, this generally gets called integration with the intention of bringing the direct experience into your daily life. Since a direct experience is alive and wild and the idea of integration is essentially to mix the absolute (direct experience) with the relative, wild, alive nature tends to get covered up by the mundane and the connection fades. We will discuss strategies and practices to develop and deepen direct experience outside the context of a formal Intensive.
John was introduced to the intensive by Edrid at Origin in the mid 90’s and trained with them there as a master (mostly monitor) about 10 years ago also at Origin. You can contact him at email@example.com
"Thank you so much for this!
I'm training to be a Master and all this early history helps me learn more about the nature of the intensive.
Warmly, MM, US"
