Clearing is based on the work of Charles Berner/Yogeshwar Muni (1929-2007)
. He is best known for the Enlightenment Intensive
(EI) retreat, a dynamic fusion of the Zen sesshin
and the dyad form developed by Ava Berner in the early 1960s. Since its beginnings in 1968 in the Californian desert, the EI rapidly gained in popularity and is now an international phenomenon.
While this format is brilliant for giving participants the chance to directly touch on Truth in brief Samadhi, his other work is focused on processing fixed ideas to obviate the need for neurotic behaviour towards a fulfilled daily life. Together, his methods speak to all searchers, wherever they are on their journey, and offers precise guidance and practical exercises to further understanding and embodied wisdom.
