They are not a part of any religion or spiritual tradition. Their teaching is based on simple universal truths that can be discovered and explored in deep silence by everyone.

Rune and Arne have a common statement:
“Our message, spoken or written can seem to be too good to be true. Come, have your own experience and find out for yourself. This is the only way.

Come and let go of this huge misunderstanding that you are separated from this silence that constantly expresses itself as peaceful Bliss”

Rune Heivang and Arne Bjellebø are the founders of Esenta Foundation, together with Sorin Tarcea. A non-profit organization for the advancement of the knowledge and experience of awakened Consciousness: The expansion of acceptance, peace, joy, understanding, love, abundance and freedom. Rune and Arne have been able to share their knowledge with thousands of people for free thanks to people’s support to the foundation.

Rune tells: 

I was holding year long retreats in the Norwegian mountains. One day Arne came up to visit. We never met, but we had a funny talk about enlightenment. We had both been traveling around the world on our own looking into meditation, healing, energy methods and enlightenment traditions, to find the mystery behind the enlightened “state”. The key to enduring happiness.

After that meeting we became friends and continued exploring deeper into the levels of our true nature and the connection consciousness, creation, intelligence, energy, universe, world, body and mind.

We came to the same simple conclusion like ALL other people that have discovered the essence of Silence:

Every time you contact silence, you experience the expansion of peace and happiness.

If the same thing happens every time it is Science 🙂

The next question we asked was off course this:
Can the expansion of peace and happiness be enduring?

The answer was YES!

It is our true nature.
Our true nature is enduring Peace and Happiness!

But it is only enduring if you go to The Absolute that is not a state. It is a state less state, free from seeking any more peaceful or happier states.

Here The Expansion of Happiness Never Ends!

Here it shines into itself just being itself – seeing itself everywhere. It is absolute.

So again we could agree with many of these remarkable enlightened people that had recorded the same experiences through thousands of years of history. In Deep Gratitude!

From meetings in good company:


“Among the thousands of people that we have met, the number of people who have changed their lives profoundly is growing rapidly. We thank you for your gratitude, love and support that motivates us to continue sharing this divine wisdom in retreats, meetings and private sessions.”
Rune Heivang and Arne Bjellebø

I am so happy and grateful to have found Rune, Arne and the whole group. Before I was looking for silence but couldn’t find out what it really meant and also did not really believe that it would be possible for everyone to experience. My first online retreat with Rune and Arne changed everything for me, really everything. I remember the first days just listening to Rune and also to the people in the group and understanding: There is presence and the people share the experience together. Since then I did not want to leave again. Thanks to the great clarity of the teaching and presence I experienced there, I finally understood where and how to recognize silence and that everything is already there and open to experience. Thanks so much, Rune and Arne, for showing us silence, for sharing these deep and clear insights with us and for the map, for meditating and celebrating together, for listening and answering with so much patience and warm humor and for all your care and support!

Thanks, beyond words for turning 2020 into this incredibly special time!

I believe this retreat (like others also with Rune) is not something ordinary, you will meet something that is at the highest level possible, is true gold; is not only about staying in presence, is something more than this, it is about love, it is about the energy of flow, is about great insight about us and the world around us…

 Dear Rune & Arne,
Thank you for the infinite gifts you always offer us.
I am happy and grateful for the opportunity to spend quality time with you and with a group of wonderful people.
You are all awesome! ❤
Every time you draw the map and talk about it, I have new insights and I see more clear the paper we are. It seems like not clear enough to be one, but I am enjoying the road to nowhere. Maybe one day I will arrive nowhere or … maybe not.
With gratitude…

The encounter with Rune and Arne was a total life changing for me. They help me several times during their retreats to enter that “state beyond any state” and in time, exactly as Rune predicted, it became my second nature. Just resting in presence without nothing to prove, with no fear of any kind – enjoying pure love, light and ecstasy. I am deeply grateful for this gift as the biggest gift I could ever receive. Thank you Rune and Arne. Love.

I made another stop in the teaching that Rune and Arne propose because, in a sense, I have always known that there is something wrong with the way we live, think or relate. Together with the people I met here I had the opportunity to experience silence, comfort, acceptance, love, connection, presence, and the baggage of understanding and openness with which I returned home is priceless. Thank you!


My heart is so big, you all are so beautiful. It’ s something new for me, it is as if I know it, but I’m not used to It.
I feel my body expands, it is so light. It is not so important what I am saying, more important is the peace. And the openness.
There is not much to say, because there is no story. It’s just here. It’s unbelievable. And it is not something which is just mine. Actually I don’t feel it is connected to “me” or to whatever I was thinking I was.
I feel like a newborn who sees the world for the first time.
Everything is new but everything is so friendly.
There is so much happiness and it’s as if it is everywhere.
Thank you so much! It’s wonderful!
I’m asking myself whether my body can carry so much happiness inside. But this happiness is finding her own place, even inside my body.
How couldn’t I see this up to now?
There are no words to describe It.
And everything comes from within myself. And everything I’ve done until now is to try to find It somewhere else, to receive It from somewhere.
But it has always been inside of me.
Thank you!


Thank you, thank you, thank you! These retreats give me the opportunity to spend more time in peace with wonderful people.
God bless you for the work you do!

Thank you, Rune and Arne, for always reminding us, gently, with humor and simplicity, that the world is a magical “place” and that we are always Home!

After the workshop with Rune, I realized it was the workshop of my life. I could say that all my life I have prepared myself for this workshop. All the words in the world I would use could say nothing about what I actually felt … It was kind of … “wooow”. Then, in addition, this retreat gave me the knowledge of who I really am. It helped me “know” and  feel “Home”, being myself. And I know, it is not possible to forget this “place” from where I can be myself, all the time.
