New! Process from India to celebrate World Oneness Day - 7pm on Friday
New! Ana Matos and Brad Hults will join Bernie Koftinoff for the Oneness Meditation as part of the 7:30pm program.

We live in a world that is rapidly changing and we as individuals and as societies find ourselves in conflict and confusion in all aspects of life. We then respond to our problems from lower levels of consciousness resulting in a crisis in the individual and the world around us. THE PHENOMENON AND GIFT weekend will raise the levels of consciousness resulting in experiences of fulfillment and oneness, naturally and effortlessly. The Divine has manifested as "The Phenomenon of the Golden Orb” in response to human prayers and suffering.

Experience ancient teachings and sacred meditations/processes led by the Oneness Guides from the Oneness Temple in India. Leave surrounded in peace, love, and joy as the teachings and processes bring about insights and transformation. Participants will then be led through a RARE INITIATION process to share Golden Orb Deeksha (Blessing)!!

Oneness University is a spiritual school in India and also home to the Oneness Phenomenon, a living intelligence affecting all of humanity. Many lives have been changed and relationships healed as people wake up to the preciousness and sacredness of life.

Here's what other's have said about the course!

“For the first time in my life I had causeless joy erupt from me in uncontrollable laughter than was so deep, loving, and freeing at the end of Saturday night process (after dinner). Everyone was back in the dorm (next to the bookstore) and I couldn't not stop laughing. I was in the bathroom giggling my head off. I looked in the mirror and asked what am I laughing at? And this rush of energy was felt through my body - CAUSELESS JOY.”
 - Jacqueline from San Diego

“It is way easier to connect to my Inner Guidance. I trust it more! I get answers really quick. I am able to hold centre when all around me is in chaos.”
 - Link

“I was completely new to Oneness. This program has had a huge impact on me and my work--more wealth and prosperity is coming into my life. I was surprised how very practical and tangible the results have been.”
 - Professional Artist

THE PHENOMENON AND THE GIFT is open to everyone...there are no prerequisites to attend this course.

Oneness University guides will:

  • Introduce teachings about the Phenomenon

  • Lead meditations

  • Guide deep internal processes

  • Interact directly with participants in a Q & A format

The Pheasant Run Resort is located in St. Charles, which is 30 miles west of the O'Hare International Airport.  A special block of hotel rooms is available at a deeply discounted price, $99 per night, and they are waiving the resort fee!

 Registration Link: 

Or you may call the resort at 630-584-6300 and tell them you are with 'The Phenomenon and The Gift' group. They will give you the group discount.  This room rate is guaranteed through May 6th.


The Course meals includes a delicious lunch for both Saturday and Sunday. The lunch includes a salad bar, quinoa salad with roasted vegetables, tuna salad, egg salad, chicken salad, tomato and mozzarella salad, soup, fruit plate, chocolate cake, coffee and drinks.

This course is unlike any you have attended outside the Oneness University in India. The schedule is very tight as we are coordinating a live feed from India to 7 U.S. cities, in 3 different time zones, simultaneously. The nature of the course encourages staying in the energy field of the Phenomenon throughout the entire weekend. 

There is not enough time for hundreds of people to leave get food and return during the short lunch break. It is imperative to start on time and we do not want to start without you.  We want to encourage you to eat together in community also because many people have wondering insights and breakthroughs as they share their learning/miracles with each other during the meals.   Although the meal plan is not required it's highly recommended.  

Please bring snacks with you as there is no official dinner break on Saturday night, just a short break between lunch and 10:30PM where you'll have an opportunity to eat your snack.

We have vegan & gluten free options available with each meal.  If you have serious food allergies we suggest that you make plans like you would when you are eating out at any other restaurant.
