Further Reading


If you would like to know more about Enlightenment Intensives, or just get inspired before taking one, here are some books as well as a free PDF.



Jake Chapman’s Tell Me Who You Are (self-published, 1989) is a very readable overview of Enlightenment Intensives. Part 1 is semi-fictional first-person view of taking an Intensive. Part 2 is an explanation of the process of seeking, experiencing, communicating and living from enlightenment experiences. The book is out of print but possibly available second-hand.

However, you can access a free PDF copy of Part 1 here.

The Enlightenment Intensive

Dyad Communication as a Tool for Self Realization

by Lawrence Noyes |


Lawrence took his first Enlightenment Intensive in 1976, trained extensively with founder Charles Berner until 1986, and has given his own trainings and seminars internationally for many years. Here he details how Enlightenment Intensives are run and offers participants’ stories in their own words. He includes photos of people in the contemplation and communication process. The book gives a reader a good idea of the challenging inner work done by participants on an Enlightenment Intensive.
