NEW: 8 Week Online Intensive

Beginning Saturday, April 20





Our dear friend Tom speaks about his experience on the intensive


I just returned from India and attending an intensive with Sal. Assuming you are reading this because you are considering attending yourself, I would highly recommend attending the  intensive with Sal in India. After attending at online mini-intensive I registered for an in-person intensive in India. Concerns began arising almost immediately around why I was traveling to India when I could attend the intensive online via Zoom. I also had thoughts of concern about going to India itself. The experience of going to the in-person intensive provided an overwhelmingly clear response to these two concerns. Having experienced both online and in person intensives, I can report that they are completely different experiences.

Going to India is a whole-body commitment to freedom. You get up, board whatever conveyances your location demands and you haul yourself there. This action sends a message to your system beyond your mind that you are taking this step with serious intent. The act of going there is part of the intensive itself, and provides a level of focus I found to be immensely helpful. When you arrive you join a group of friends who all are navigating the environment of Tiruvannamalai. You share insights, tips and resources. The community of attendees bonds immediately. 

Sal's work is available remotely. I had bought his first book in 2018, the material of which is entirely consistent with what we covered in India. And when I attended, I sat ten feet from Sal. He engaged with my questions and said exactly what needed to be said for me to recognize what he had been saying all along. Something very human about sitting with Sal and the others in the same room occurs that technology cannot replicate. The experience of making the commitment to go, organizing the trip, joining the group and sitting in Sal's comfortable home with a view of Mount Arunachala aids in process of continuing your path to freedom. That is why I highly recommend you make the trip if you have the means. - PAUL LAFONTAINE - Intensive Jan/Feb 2023 

I attended the first intensive with Sal. What an amazing experience it was. The 'seeing ' of my essential nature was made absolutely clear. Almost too simple yet unmistakable. It was lovely to be in the presence of Sal and the other wonderful people on the intensive. Also the roof of his house is the perfect setting. This is my third visit to India. I love it. I think everyone should visit India at least once in their lives. Much love! - ANTOINE - January 2023 Tiru Intensive

I came to India to do Sal’s intensive per a friend’s suggestion. I was skeptical but wanted a break in magical India, and be near the holy mountain of Arunachala. This proved to be a perfect combination to realize what freedom really is. Sal’s intensive was simple, fun, and profoundly liberating. I am truly grateful…and free.” Truly grateful. - JOYCE - Janauary 2023 Tiru Intensive

I highly appreciate your work. I was unknowingly waiting for it for 50 years of incessant seeking. I bought into all of the never ending bells and whistles for fifty years! Again and again and again. And suddenly here it is: A blessing, the search is over. And as a side effect of your work: a lot of unsolicited (surprising) changes all by themselves!!! Your work is incredibly precious!
ALFRED Sept 2022

Sal is a great communicator. His way of expressing the subtle and ineffable is clear, precise and simple. With urgent compassion he unveils the simple understanding that none of us choose and none of us do. This insight is clearly shown, not through words, beliefs or philosophy but demonstrated and made available to all. The transformation wrought is both subtle and absolute.
JAMIE - Sept 2022

It’s amazing to see how simple questions and exercises can be so effective. Since I met Sal in Intensives and inquired about doership in my own life, I’m immensely more relaxed about things in general. Whatever I do, feel, desire, think etc… is not of my own will. Much of the guilt about negativity has vanished and I’m surrendering to the will of Life, knowing and verifying that there is no mistake.Thank you Sal. 

Though others have pointed to the same thing, no one else in my experience has done it so directly, simply, and convincingly. And with such good humor.
After Sal's remarkably clear teaching that we are not the choosers of our thoughts -- they simply arise -- it is much easier for me to accept differences with others.  Gone is the anger I have sometimes felt when people (for example politicians) do things that I disagree with.  I can still disagree, but I don't blame them for the choices they make.  Closer to home, I can accept differences with my loved ones much more easily.  This feels like an awakened understanding of human nature.  And it helps make life much more enjoyable. 
LARRY - Sept 2022

I considered myself a serious seeker, but after being with the famous teachers I was with, I really wasn't prepared for the fucking mind-blowing,
presentation that happens during the intensive. My long path is over.

HAMIDO -January 2021 Intensive

I’ve read many testimonials on your website and, before the Intensive, wondered how people could write with such certainty, “It’s done now,” “It’s over now,” “I’m free.  And now it’s really true for me too!!!!
