Not able to attend the Sedona Experiment #2 in person? You can still be a part of this historic retreat which will set the bar for similar bootcamp-style retreats to come in terms of its effectiveness to take people into a realization of the God-Consciousness and the Absolute!

Why not participate LIVE by creating your own retreat space in the comfort of your own home, and own the sessions to rewatch whenever you want to re-do (parts of) the Experiment!?

One participant described it as:

"One thousand times as effective and LIFE CHANGING as a 10-Day Silent Vipassana Retreat."

The Sedona Experiment

Learn about The Sedona Experiment #2 (Dec 4-15) below! This will be Bentinho's longest and most direct-teaching public retreat yet. This time the experiment is open to 100 people!

Realizing The Absolute in Two Weeks of Persistent Meditation

A book of the Sedona Experiment transcripts and experience is being produced. Sign up below to stay informed on this, and other Bentinho Massaro related posts and events.

Want to participate in the second Sedona Experiment?
What to expect/know/prepare for:

  • 12 Days of non-stop instruction, reflection and meditation.
  • Meditations and reflections are both guided by Bentinho as well as held in silence.
  • Meditations are held both in group settings as well as by yourself.
  • Morning and evening sessions will be held at an indoor venue. Silent Meditation Afternoon sessions will be held at an outdoor venue.
  • Attend at your own discretion and be ready: Your outlook on life will never be the same again after this retreat--many illusions and delusions will be destroyed over the course of these 12-days of bootcamp style guidance and attendance.
  • Fall utterly and completely in love with your innermost Self, and be prepared to lose interest in trivial and external things.
  • Depending on the person, the first 3 or so days may include some inner battle with the mind, but due to the consistency of the guidance provided and the container and environment held, you will almost certainly pass a threshold and meditation will become a joy for you afterwards, taking your deeper at an accelerated pace each day onwards.
  • You will not recognize yourself at the end of this event.
  • There will be 2 or 3 solo-days as part of this event as well, where we don't or only for part of the day come together with everyone.

    General Preparations/Recommendations:
  • Community interactions will be allowed at certain days, but strongly advised against on other days.
  • For the outdoor afternoon sessions, we recommend you bring clothes in layers, a light-weight, warm jacket and/or a blanket, a meditation cushion (or a folding/camping chair if you cannot sit yogic style for 1-2 hours).
  • Be capable of sitting comfortably in a meditation position (whether in chair or on the floor) for 1-2 hours.
  • We recommend daily dry fasts (no food OR liquids) of at least 12 hours, and daily food fasts of at least 15 hours. We recommend concord grape juice with a tablespoon or two of lemon juice (pasteurized for both is good) mixed in to break your daily dry fasts, and to hold you over until you consume food, if at all.
  • If you decide to do a full fast while attending this event we only recommend the Master Fast System for this purpose.
  • When/if you do eat we recommend keeping it to raw fruits and/or salads, at least until the evening meal (which is after the last session). Maintaining daily mini-fasts and eating lightly during the day will help most people greatly in their meditations.

    Recommended books to read before and/or during the retreat:
  • 1) The Direct Means to Eternal Bliss - Michael Langford, 
  • 2) The Seven Steps to Awakening (composed by Michael Langford, but authors are Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, and others)
  • 3) The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte

"Two and a half months after the Original Sedona Experiment started... especially tonight; the Absolute has become so self-evident and accessible that I have to wonder why I never noticed it before the Experiment. As beautiful as the appearance of the red rocks is here in Sedona, the Absolute is even more beautiful and alluring tonight." -- Gail Abelow

Original Sedona Experiment Participants' Statements:

"I'm experiencing the impact of the Experiment as a stealth, timebomb effect. Tremendous emerging energy and magic. Seems to have a life of its own. Mysterious." -- Janet Marchant

"My feeling after the days I attended: Grateful, changed, mindblown, loved, expanded, contracted, grown, still, vast, united. What happend in this vortex is something I could never have expected, planned or orchestrated beforehand. 

This journey into unknown fields, towards the absolute, the pointers and doors that lead further, the energy that sometimes felt too intense and delicious at the same time...the flow of creativity and love, going further beyond and deeper within than I have ever been before...

Even on one day diving into a state that was not my personal me anymore but just loving infinite oneness. Days after the experiment it still lasts, it changes, it is constantly expanding, sometimes being back in my physical me, then moments of feeling the oneness that includes everything that is just a story, an illusion...indescribable. Thank you Bentinho and all the others, for the red pill." -- Petra Heveroch

"Most spiritual advice—stuff like "each moment you can choose how to feel" or "follow your highest excitement" or "deep down, you always know what to do"—has always been conflicting for me at a certain point. It's not always applicable; it's relevance isn't permanent. There comes a point where advice like this leads to paradox or confusion. So until recently, all I've found has been great but imperfect wisdom. In other words, until recently all I've found is varying degrees of delusion. 

During the Sedona Experiment, for the first time in my life, I got complete clarity. I'm not saying I reached where I want to reach yet—I'm saying that now I know what I want, why I want it, where it is, and how to get there. I used to want things like relief, happiness, confidence, clarity, success, alignment, influence, love, and to reach my potential. Now I see that those are all inevitable byproducts of what I truly want. And the path that leads to what I truly want is plain as day. It's not an easy road but it's simple and I know I can make it. I've been looking for this kind of clarity for years. 

The Sedona Experiment was a masterpiece. This changes everything. As far as I'm concerned it's Bentinho's best work to date." -- Cory Katuna

"My life will not be the same after these two weeks. It sounds presumptuous, but the realizations have been very subtle and so within reach at the same time. It took some persistence and dedication, but once I quietly realized the obvious, it became very persistent and attractive as a deep knowing. I can now jumpstart right away from that place. I’m surprised and grateful at the same time." -- Matthias Arentsen

"Words fail to describe what is opening up before me. The physical world now pales in comparison to a glimpse into the Divine. Bliss and joy no longer seem remote but rather ever here and available. It is a game changer. Marcel Proust said the real voyage of discovery is found in "seeing with new eyes". The Sedona Experiment has accomplished this." -- James Kline
