4 week Intensive Zen Self Discovery, Yoga and Meditation course to connect to your Essential Self. Inspired by the Enlightenment Intensive process. Includes FREE ACCESS to 1x Intensive Dyad Detox Day Online Workshop!




“Have you ever wondered who you are without all your stories? What is your Essential Nature? And what is your authentic purpose?”


Join us on a wonderful journey of self discovery to reconnect with your Essential Self. The one without all the learned masks and social conditionings… the one that you were born with. The source of your life energy, creativity, inner wisdom and peace.

We are bringing you a unique 4-week course based on the famous Enlightenment Intensive process*.

Through ancient Zen Self enquiry, guided meditations, nourishing yoga sessions and creative techniques of self discovery you’ll uncover the potential of the Real you. Each session will be a gradual step, guiding you through the layers of your personality towards your authentic Essence.

This is not another workshop where someone is teaching you about who you are. It is your own, exceptionally practical and very private journey, where it will be entirely you who discovers the gold you carry within, unique for each and every one of us.

We’ll be there for you, providing you with supportive techniques and creating a space where you will feel safe and protected, so you can totally merge with the question of ‘Who you really are’.

You are stepping into a wonderful space, where there is no performance or protective masks needed. Use this opportunity to go in, reconnect and flower…

‘Behind the scenes of the outside world, there is a wonderful space – a space, which has been patiently and lovingly waiting for you… your inner home.’

We are very much looking forward to accompany you on your unique journey!

With love,

Peter and Amanda





Each session will be a gradual step, guiding you through the layers of your personality towards your authentic Essence. You’ll begin the journey by connecting to Yourself in the context of ‘here and now’ and with what is alive in you at this moment (on a holistic level – mind, body, emotions, spirit).

The process will continue to bring your awareness onto the connection between You and your life situations or challenges. You’ll practice a technique of Real Observation (quantum physics) to develop Real Understanding, a milestone for the Transformation of any life challenge. Deeper within this course, you’ll practice connecting to your unique Essential Self, the source of your inspiration, creativity and intuition…

The final session will support you to reveal your Authentic Purpose and to give you practical tools on how to sustain the connection with your Essential Self in daily life.

Dyad Zen Self enquiry:

You can see the video about the Enlightenment Intensive process HERE.

Guided Meditations:

Meditation is a gateway to your unique Self, the still and peaceful centre in the hurricane of the relentless stream of thoughts and stories. Meditations will be a part of each live self enquiry session, deepening the theme of the week and accompanying you on your journey.

Yoga sessions:

Morning Yoga sessions, with wonderful Amanda, will deepen your whole process, bringing it to a body level. Various yoga styles, Amanda’s gentle presence and the nourishing voice of her guidance, will enhance the theme of each week and will nourish and centre you to be ready for the upcoming day.


You will be introduced in techniques of creative journaling, which will be a supportive tool for you in case you wish to work individually on your self discovery in between sessions.
