In the first edition of Consciousness of Truth, a Manual for the Enlightenment Intensive, new knowledge was added to the wealth of information and wisdom in the old manual, Transmission of Truth. This new knowledge included:

a precise definition of enlightenment and a definition of consciousness

the reasons for using only the questions 'Who am I?' and 'What am I?' on Enlightenment Intensives

an explanation of why only three-day Enlightenment Intensives should be given

the reasons for explaining what enlightenment is to participants on an Intensive

In this second edition, in addition to the above, you will find:
a change in the definition of enlightenment (p.1)
a clarified and expanded definition of consciousness (pp.3-4)
Berner's conviction that a master should not say whether a participant is enlightened or not (pp .68-9, .l33, l37, 142, 144)
the boundary between inspiration and manipulation (p. 69)
why only the 'Tell me' form of the instruction should be used (p.90)
a minimum age for an EI participant (pp. 73-4, 209-10)

This manual is indispensable for the Enlightenment Master. It is also useful for Enlightenment Intensive participants and anyone who wants to know more about enlightenment and how to achieve it. In addition, much of the information can be applied to the successful running of any workshop and the achievement of mastership in any field.
