Product Description

Review

"What happened for me on that first one is that the passion for the truth turned on in me."
-Yon Kane recalling his experience as a participant at the first Enlightenment Intensive in 1968

"The Enlightenment Intensive is a real breakthrough in the growth of consciousness and compassion in the world. In this book, Lawrence Noyes has made an important and timely contribution to the body of knowledge we have about enlightenment, how to achieve it, and how to live it."
-Rita Wyser, educator, Family Therapist

Format: Paperback
I’ve given 99 Enlightenment Intensives over the past 33 years. The EI is a pure and powerful methodology for awakening. It is a true miracle!
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.

I love this book. All the normal religious mumbo jumbo is missing from this book. This book is about a new process of partner assisted meditation called a "Dyad". Meditation alone is not enough to break down sterotypes and mind games. The properly trained partner can help in the navigation to the true inner self. The Dyad process is used at 3 day Enlightenment Intensives to reach personal bedrock truth. This well written book will allow you to understand Enlightenment Intensives on a practical level that you can use and not just read about. This book is what our culture has needed for years.

HASH(0xa0baf944) out of 5 stars and he is one of the most brilliant people I know Jan. 4 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Enlightenment Intensive, chronicles and describes a self-inquiry process that I've come to know and love, and that has changed my life in a deeply profound way. I am free from being a prisoner of my thoughts because of this process. My capacity to know my authentic self and feel love and compassion from a place I never thought possible is as a direct result of this process. This book is a great introduction to the Enlightenment Intensive and what it has to offer you and the world. Thank you Lawrence for sharing this book with the world. It desperately needs it. With deep gratitude and appreciation. Merryl Nash, M.A.
HASH(0xa0baf968) out of 5 stars A great book about self-discovery Dec 1 2015
By Connie Ferrara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although the words ‘enlightenment’ and ‘self-realization’ can be overplayed in some circles, this book about a three-day process deserves a close look by the world at large. No belief system is taught. No experience is necessary. In short, the Enlightenment Intensive is an astonishing way to do inner work, and it is explained in full here.

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.

HASH(0xa0baf950) out of 5 stars Invaluable - a breath of fresh air! Nov. 29 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lawrence Noyes’ “The Enlightenment Intensive” is a finely written introduction to the relatively little known self-realization technique that was made to order for the 20th and 21st centuries. The book not only presents the origins and method of the Enlightenment Intensive without hawking them as “the” way to enlightenment, but it includes an astute commentary on the nature of enlightenment itself, based not on conjecture but clearly apparent firsthand knowledge. In addition to Noyes’ own personal experience of the subject, he includes an entire chapter of personal accounts of enlightenment experiences from participants that dispels the common misconception of enlightenment as a one time, all pervading experience that instantly transforms a person into a Buddha or a saint. Not that enlightenment can’t or doesn’t do that, but the experiences related here and the text of the book overall presents a much more realistic account of this Holy Grail of mystical experience.

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.
