For three days 18 hours a day the participants are focused on contemplating the Truth of themselves. Each aspect of the intensive is designed to support the process.
A unique technique, a structured, non-distracting environment, regular nourishing meals, and experienced staff all add to the ability to experience the Truth of oneself.
This is a powerful technique. Charles Berner said,
"I have tested this technique and I have compared it to other methods of enlightenment. This technique is about 50-100 times more rapid in producing enlightenment experiences than the classical techniques."
ENLIGHTENMENT INTENSIVE MANUAL
In the first edition of Consciousness of Truth, a Manual for the Enlightenment Intensive, new knowledge was added to the wealth of information and wisdom in the old manual, Transmission of Truth.
This new knowledge includes a precise definition of enlightenment and a definition of consciousness, the reasons for using only the questions "Who am I?" and "What am I?" on Enlightenment Intensives, an explanation of why only three-day Enlightenment Intensives should be given, and the reasons for telling participants on an intensive what enlightenment is.
In this second edition, in addition to the above, you will find a change in the definition of enlightenment (p.1), a clarified and expanded definition of consciousness (pp. 3-4), Berner 's conviction that a master should not say whether a participant is enlightened or not (pp, 68-9, 133, 137, 142, 144), the boundary between inspiration and manipulation (p. 69), why only the "Tell me" form of the instruction should be used (p. 90), and a minimum age for an EI participant (pp. 73-4, 209-210).
