Weekend DSI Intensive (Event Full - Please contact Dan to be added to wait list)
July 20th and 21st, 2019

Come join us for two days of deep self investigation, Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  This workshop is geared for those who have experience with the practice of self inquiry, and who feel a strong desire to awaken from identification with sense of being a separate self to recognizing their identity as awareness.  The intensive will include ample opportunity for several one on one sessions with Dan, talks, group work, and walking and stretching/yoga breaks. 

The intensive will be at a private residence, and you will need to arrange accommodations for Saturday evening if staying in town, and for your morning and evening meals.  Frank Trombetta can help with options for local restaurants and places to stay over night (828) 388-1794‬.  Lunches will be "pot luck", so please bring food to share, or if you have food restrictions make sure you have what you need.  There will be a variety of snacks and drinks on hand.   Cost is a recommended donation of $45, but contribute what you can afford or as you feel inspired.  No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  Please contact Dan if you have any questions at

Please use the Donate button below to register for the weekend intensive.




"One of the great things about Dan is that he is wide awake and is a shining example of what Awakened Living looks like. He radiates happiness, compassion and love, all while being an ordinary, down-to-earth guy who doesn’t want to be looked up to as a teacher. Instead he is just a good friend suggesting that one look deeper. One of the things he likes to point out is that we already are Awareness. We are already the fully awakened consciousness we’re seeking. He just wants to help people see it for themselves, which is where DSI comes in. Each DSI session I have with Dan brings more insight and less identification with the character."  ~ Trey


"It's enormously relieving to drop different ideas I had, especially about enlightenment. I'm no longer trying to drop "thought" or change myself. I'm simply noting the difference between what I actually am and what I thought I was or was supposed to become.

I am especially deeply touched by Dan's love and kindness, tender and mischievous sense of humor, lack of pretentiousness, and the true friendship and patience he offers to each of us. Dan always strive to include us all which makes me feel warm and welcome." ~ Frank


"One of the techniques I practiced was “Self Inquiry” with the primary question being “Who am I?” DSI is inspired and in large part modeled after Self Inquiry. However, the huge defining difference is the creator and guide on the DSI journey, Dan Kelso.

Imagine having an awakened guide assisting in uncovering and unfolding what you know is the core of your spiritual being, someone committed to your finding your blocks and pealing back the layers that have kept you in the illusion. That’s the role Dan has played in this adventure of Self discovery by assisting in seeing that DSI works for me. He has freely given his time, energy, and unique gift of helping people discover their own inspiration and path to awakening with never any cost or obligation.

If you are serious about a real spiritual awakening, you owe it to yourself to see what DSI is." ~ Tom


"Dan Kelso is the real thing. For decades I’ve heard “drop the Ego” and the sense of “little self” to realize who you truly are---the Big Self with a capital “S”, but no one gave me the vehicle to achieve this goal and stay there! How fortunate I was to meet Dan and begin working with him and his practice of Deep Self Investigation (DSI). His method is clear--you can’t get there with thinking. With headiness. With the usual squirrel-on-the-treadmill constructs  of egocentric thought.

If you are willing and eager to embrace this revolutionary process, and devote yourself to this journey, I can guarantee it will alter you profoundly and permanently!

Do not miss an opportunity to engage with Dan!  He will teach you how to de-construct all your old limitations and patterns. He will encourage you with great finesse, kindness, and humor.  As we begin to see our Self with the capital “S”, we begin to move into the state of ultimate freedom, the state “where we are missing nothing.”
Come and get it!!!" ~ Jennifer
