Yoah's video review of Leo Drioli's new book, You Hold the Key
I usually read these words by Jesus at most Enlightenment Intensives that I facilitate. I came across this quote from The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels, probably decades ago by now. It’s attributed to the Gospel of Thomas. I always have to smile that while Jesus has been known as The Son of God, he certainly also practiced the healing power of the dyad communication practice that we use.
"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
I read those words in the short creative experimental video I played with making during the covid lock down here in South Australia…..which is ending very soon so the annual 2021 New Year Enlightenment Intensive will certainly happen.

The reality of the Carona Virus, certainly as presented in the main stream media, is shocking amongst a host of other adjectives.
Through the media the virus is infecting the mind. And while a healthy prophylactic for the body is needed, so is a healthy practice for the mind and emotional body.
I generally live a life of moderate quietude and isolation, so those potential lockdown possibilities aren’t much of a difference to my daily lifestyle. But I certainly understand that most people live busy, social interactive lives. I’m sorry that much of that activity will mostly be restrained and curtailed. And all the sides of business, i.e., employer, employee and customer will be impacted, sometimes severely.
In light of this I suggest continue taking the time for meditation and its potency for emptying the bodymind of stress. The pre EI teachings that I often send out before the Intensive are also remedies to the soul’s healing.

The Enlightenment Intensive is the Yoga of Enlightenment
It's the transformational journey from the isolated, alienated and separate self into Unity Consciousness.
Its the journey of dissolving the root causes of psychological and emotional suffering and the birthing of happiness, centeredness and contentment.
Half a Century ago, Carl Rogers, the father of Humanistic Psychology, wrote that beneath each person's individual suffering was the question, "'Who am I, REALLY? How can I get in touch with this real self? ... How can I become myself?"
One hundred years ago, Ramana Maharshi, the modern Indian sage and 'who am I' guru, began to teach, "Meditate upon who you are.... know yourself and you will know everything."
About two thousand years ago, Patanjali, the ancient yoga sage and author of the Yoga Sutures wrote that the ultimate goal of Yoga was the conscious, direct knowing of the Self.
The Enlightenment Intensive is a pragmatic exploration of reality.
It is not hypothetical, theological or idealogical.
It is practical, active and engaging.
You bring unity to doing, knowing and loving.
You engage the body, mind and the heart.
You are the scientist, the philosopher and the lover.
You are the experiment and the one who experiments.
You are the poet and the poem.
At the Enlightenment Intensive Retreat you are encouraged and inspired to go beyond the realm of limited perceptual knowledge and venture into the mode of transformational consciousness or direct knowing.
This is the place where the realm of duality is dissolved. Where the perceiver and the perceived become one. Where the knower, the known and the knowing dissolve into Union Consciousness. This is the place where separation ceases to exist. This is the home of No Mind.
This is the Yoga of Enlightenment and the place where the secret of Yoga is revealed.
