An Invitation

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.

A Request for Support

We intend to continue offering these gatherings free of charge and would like some help to cover costs. If that is something you feel moved to help with, please see our Donate page. Thank you!

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 

The Presentations

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.

Next Presentation in this Series

Wednesday, 1 February 2023 – presenter Bill Savoie

Bill Savoie will share some of what has been learned in these last 56 years of ongoing dyad practice. Charles Berner was interesting, often saying “You are God.” Bill joined his Costa Mesa, California, “The Institute of Ability” in May 1966. Eighteen months later, they were zoned out of the city (“too many motorcycles!”) But Charles got 40 acres of desert, in Lucerne Valley, CA, so they moved. As a ministerial student, he labored sunup to sundown, living frugally for 10 months on $1000 in a 1961 Corvair van, in the desert, eating rice, powdered milk, and lentils! Eight of us created the 2000 square foot A-Frame “World Headquarters.” This spiritual community, financially poor, depending on each other, gave birth to the alive energy of the Enlightenment Intensives.


The presentation will be followed by two dyad sessions.

Future Presentations

Wednesday, 1 March, 2023 - presentation by Osha Reader

My first Intensive was a 5-day led by Charles Berner in the summer of 1969. Two months later, I moved to Charles’s Institute of Ability in Lucerne Valley, where I learned to lead Intensives under his guidance. In 1970, I founded Origin, a non-profit organization based in the California High Sierra. Enlightenment Intensives and other retreats have been happening there for 52 years. In 1980, I was inspired to create an Annual Intensive for retreat leaders. This Intensive, led by different masters, is now in its 43rd year and is open to everyone.
