Lawrence Noyes “The Enlightenment Intensive” is a clear and practical explication of the EI. He delineates the principles it is founded on and takes the reader through the process; describing and explaining the form and what participants typically experience as they move through the three days of the Intensive. The book is clearly written and it brilliantly describes a wide range of subjects relating to the work of Enlightenment.
If you are interested in awakening - read this book. Direct experience will cease to be a faint hope or vague ideal and become for you to a concrete possibility. You will be inspired to find an Intensive and do it! And that could change your life.

Anyone interested in real self-discovery could benefit from reading this material. Noyes details how Enlightenment Intensives are run and offers participants’ stories in their own words. He includes photos to add visuals of people in the contemplation and communication process. They give a reader a good idea of the challenging inner work done by participants on an Enlightenment Intensive.
Having attended several of these three-day weekend retreats with people from all walks of life, I find the method on the forefront of personal development today. I don’t say that lightly. This book demonstrates how energy toward the actual truth can be created through a real intention to ask. Many are aware of the power of asking and being open to truth, but the Enlightenment Intensive technique works with great efficiency. This is a clear and insightful book about this process.
Having taken a number of Intensives since 1973, one of the things I most appreciate about the book is its practical use for those who take Intensives regularly: notably the chapters on What to Do After an Enlightenment Intensive; When All Else Fails…Express the Truth; and Communication in the Dyads - How and Why it Works. The book is certainly an excellent introduction for anyone who is interested in taking an Intensive for the first time, but it is also invaluable for repeat offenders!
I am giving it five stars because I think Enlightenment Intensives are the best thing I’ve ever done in my life (I am 71), and because Noyes is no pretender who prattles on about abstruse spiritual or philosophical conjectures. This is a refreshing, no-nonsense presentation of an age old human reality that is all too often idealized and never experienced.
