I recently published a book titled, Enlightenment and the Enlightenment Intensive, Volume 1.
It is a book of essays by Charles Berner on the subject of enlightenment, the Enlightenment Intensive and the Enlightenment Dyad Technique. If you have an interest in Enlightenment in general and the Enlightenment Intensive in particular reflecting and understanding what Berner is trying to convey will yield a treasure of insight and revelation.
The book can be ordered from Amazon as a paperback or Kindle.
Below is the Introduction from the book.
Enlightenment and the Enlightenment Intensive, Volume 1
In a 1974 newspaper article Charles Berner wrote about the first Enlightenment Intensive and how it all began.
"I thought that I had something that people could and would do, so I set a date over the fourth of July weekend, 1968 for a five day Enlightenment Intensive and announced it to my students. Twenty-six people attended. Besides myself I had one assistant, Drew Renner, and Ava Berner was the cook. In a ply wood tent at Crystal Valley in the high desert of southern California, much to my continued amazement, on the third day several people experienced directly their own self. I acted very matter of act, but I had actually expected that one would have to attend many intensives in order to have a satori-like experience. Before the intensive was over, eleven of the twenty-six had direct experiences of Truth."
In this book I've included three documents by Charles Berner that deserve your study and attention if you have an interest in Enlightenment in general and the Enlightenment Intensive in particular. Reading and reflecting over and over again what Berner is trying to convey will yield a treasure of insight and revelation.
Chapter One is the 1970's booklet entitled, Enlightenment by Charles Berner. The cover of the booklet was a colorful painting by the artist Peter Max. The information and inspiration in this small but potent book is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago when it was first printed or thousands of years ago when such knowledge was only passed by word of mouth from teacher to student.
Chapter Two and Three is taken from Charles Berner's book, The Transmission of Truth. This book is the primary manual used to train new Enlightenment Masters. The two chapters I've included are entitled, The Enlightenment Technique Part 1 and The Enlightenment Technique Part 2.
Chapter Four is the one page summary of how to do the Enlightenment Dyad Technique.
Chapter Five is the edited transcript of Charles Berner's 1993 Talk commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Enlightenment Intensive. You can also watch an excerpt of this talk on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQHW7AkrLc4
Appendix 1 gives a brief biography of Charles Berner.
