Find meaning at the root of yourself. One-day of connection and deep self-enquiry using techniques from the Enlightenment Intensive process. All welcome, meditation skills are not necessary, just your own curiosity and courage.

No phones, no watches, no social chat… escape from the myriad choices your character is forced to make every day. – Instead, we carefully hold the space for you to put normal life down. 

We guide you in the simple technique of self-enquiry dyads so you can focus on the truth of who you are. This method is suited for everyone, and everyone is welcome, the process aligns with any tradition religion of philosophy.

In this safely held confidential space, you may allow all to emerge. In a small group we will guide you in the simple dyad process. The technique was developed as a combination of Zen self-enquiry and modern communication techniques. Practiced and refined around the world over decades. The aim is to facilitate you to a direct experience of your own truth. An awakening. The process itself can be deeply revealing and healing on a psychological / emotional level, often leading to moments of spiritual insight and to directly experience the ultimate truth of who you are.

This is a rare and relevant opportunity if you’re working on self-development, self compassion, or if you feel you’re on your spiritual path.

Arrive 10.15 am; Our day will start with meeting  your fellow seekers to relax share and find a sense of safety.  We’ll then explain the technique which involves working in pairs.

Throughout the day; No phones, no watches, no social chat, our aim is to put down the myriad choices your character is forced to make every day.

Lunch: Bring your own, there will be a break to have lunch in quiet contemplation. Tea, and fruit will be provided.

Finish: We will finish with some integration exercises, an opportunity to feedback, and some optional social time.

Before each session there is a guidance talk to help you sink deeper into your enquiry. Over the day the mud and stones of your thoughts will settle and you will find yourself in the clearer water of who you really are.  This dyad technique was developed by Charles Berner over many retreats into a three day process called The Enlightenment Intensive.  If you find this Self Enquiry Day useful then there will be an invitation to join a 3-day Seeking Yourself Enlightenment Intensive to be held in Scotland in October.
