at Isis Oasis in Geyserville, California

Dear Friends,

Please join us October 25th - 28th, at Isis Oasis in Geyserville CA for the 39th Annual Intensive, led by Murray Kennedy. Everyone is welcome.

Murray has been leading Intensives in the Vancouver area for almost 40 years. His wisdom, humor, authenticity, and devotion to the process have attracted participants from all over the world.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Enlightenment Intensive, created in 1968, by Charles and Ava Berner. The Enlightenment Intensive combines contemplation with communication in a powerful process aimed at direct conscious knowledge of truth.

For more information about Enlightenment Intensives, please visit: http://www.highsierra.org/ei.html , Murray’s site or the Home page of Self and Other.

Isis Oasis, where the Annual Intensive was held for many years, is about an hour's drive north of central San Rafael, and easily accessible from both SFO and the Santa Rosa airport. Amenities include a large swimming pool, three hot tubs, comfortable double rooms, spacious dorm areas with adjoining baths, and good chairs for sitting. Michelle Reynolds will be our chef.

Tuition will be on a sliding scale from $350 to $650, which includes your lodging, bedding and towels, delicious vegetarian meals, and the Intensive. Please plan to pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This will allow others who need to pay less, the opportunity to attend. Origin is a 501c3 non-profit, and those paying above the base price will be making a tax-deductible donation to support the scholarship fund.

You can reserve a place, sponsor someone, or donate to Origin at https://www.paypal.me/originintensives,
or mail a check to Origin, 40600 Hwy 49, Calpine CA 96124.
