We’re happy to let you know about a new venture created by our good friend Smaran who is a well-known and loved facilitator of Awareness Intensives at Osho events. He has recently been burning the midnight oil attending online self-enquiry dyads (as done in an Awareness or Enlightenment Intensive) with US-based masters and has found them hugely enjoyable and beneficial.

Smaran has come up with the brilliant concept of combining a talk by an Enlightenment/Awareness master with the practice dyads and is offering them free on a monthly basis starting on Wednesday 6 April at 7pm UK time – a more friendly time for UK and European audiences. His US colleagues will be promoting this first event to their email lists so we could have a good mix of US, UK and maybe European friends on the call.

In wonder of Osho Awareness Intensives and of Enlightenment Intensives


You are invited to come to a monthly series on Zoom.

Each gathering combines two parts:

A. A presentation by an Osho Awareness Intensive Leader or by an Enlightenment Intensive Master (usually 40 minutes). Followed by:

B. Two optional “Dyad” sessions (45 minutes each) where participants deepen their awareness and understanding of themselves, of life, of love, and of others.

The gatherings are free of charge.

The presentations

Each month an Awareness Intensive Leader from the Osho communities or an Enlightenment Intensive Master will present an informative and inspiring talk about various aspects of these intensives and of the dyad process.

“Awareness Intensive (AI)” is the name used in Osho communities; the process is the same as in other communities where they use the name “Enlightenment Intensive (EI)”.

(For new people who are not yet familiar with EI and AI, terms used are explained here . Also see the section further below entitled “For New People”.)

Each monthly presentation will include the unique, and often inspiring, personal experiences of the presenter.

There are many benefits of these intensives, especially how they are an opportunity for you to discover and “directly experience” the truth of who and what you actually are, of what life is, of what love is, and of what others are.

This process is suitable for every sincere seeker of truth in their lives, regardless of religious or spiritual orientation.

Care is taken so that no belief system is introduced or taught. Only a method is provided to facilitate effective and satisfying personal enquiry and experience.

Upcoming presentations in this series

Wednesday, 1 June 2022 – Lawrence Noyes

Lawrence was 25 when he took his first Enlightenment Intensive. It was the last one Charles Berner gave. After training with Charles, Lawrence gave Enlightenment Intensives for 33 years in ten countries. This included many longer Intensives of 7 or 14 days. For forty years he trained people in how to lead these groups. He’s the author of the book entitled, The Enlightenment Intensive. He’s retired from giving Intensives and trainings but continues to mentor and support those who do.

Wednesday, 6 July 2022 – Ganga

Ganga took her first Enlightenment Intensive at Easter 1975. “I walked out a different woman, my life turned around, and I became Osho’s disciple soon after.” She lived in Osho‘s Communes for over 25 years. Since 1977 she assisted and later facilitated way over 200 Intensives all around the world. Awareness Intensives (3 days), mostly Satori (7, 14 days). Since 2002 she is also offering Trainings. In 2007 she founded The Academy of Awareness and Creative Expression. “Still loving it, exploring the mystery and enjoying the gifts of this precious life.”

Keep in touch

To receive announcements, you can join the Mailing List (click here). If you have difficulty with joining that way, please email your name and email address to Smaran: smaran_1@yahoo.com. (Your details will not be passed on, and they will be used only to inform you of these AI and EI gatherings and related matters, if any.)

“For New People”

Click here for explanations of some of the terms used in this email. As a new person, you are warmly invited to attend all the presentations which occur at the beginning of each monthly event. And if you prefer, you don’t need to participate in the dyads which follow. However, there is a way for new people to participate in dyads if that is your preference. To participate in dyads in breakout rooms (the second part of each event), it will be necessary for you to be introduced to the particular dyad technique we use.

With special thanks to Osha Reader, Lawrence Noyes, and Janeane Weprin for their support and suggestions. Dedicated to Murray Kennedy and Edrid for their inspiration and personal guidance. Dedicated to Osho. If you have any queries, please email Samaran at smaran_1@yahoo.com
