Purpose at the Monastery – David Hoffmeister talks about allowing healing of the mind that removes the blocks to knowing our true purpose. Our goal, function, purpose, and lives are all guided by our desire for inner peace. And we are given blessed, inspired ways to collaborate with the Holy Spirit and pour our whole hearts into being of service!
Mysticism or Secular Experience? – In this brief session, David Hoffmeister offers us insights on how to be in full alignment with the Holy Spirit. We are invited into silence so we may be called into the very depth of our being. The belief in the ego is the belief in death, and yet, death is an unreal thought that God did not create!
What Is Christ’s Vision? – We need to be taught innocence as little children because we are brought up with the ego’s way of adding meaning to and sorting out the reasons and purposes of the world. It wants us to take sides of what is good and what is bad, and it wants us to keep asking ourselves to make decisions in the world, based on whom the ego tells us to be. This is where all the chaos comes from. We have to unwind from it all by following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Like in children’s eyes, everything is miraculous. Everything is perfect. No bad guys, no good guys, no sides. Just innocence and trust. That is our way of learning how to perceive a new world, perceive Christ’s vision. Enjoy this retreat experience with David Hoffmeister and the interactions between him and the participants.
What Is True Beauty? – True beauty is found in what is eternal.
How Do We Surrender to This Great Call of Love? – In this talk, David Hoffmeister invites us to follow our heart, to want God so much that we devalue the things of Earth, to go beyond practice and merge into the holy instant. So when we meet someone, we experience the maximal opportunity for deep joining and joy in the present moment!
How Can I Live an Inspired Life? – Fragmented perception is the problem, and happily, trust is the answer to all perceptual problems. David Hoffmeister shares parables from his perceptual dreamscape of how he transferred trust to Jesus and the Holy Spirit and away from the ego. David reminds us that all circumstances and situations are a prearranged plan to provide us with opportunities to let go of the ego.
Time to Soar in Peace – Lay aside all the trinkets of thoughts that cross the mind. There is nothing of this world that can keep you from the rest and peace of God. Enjoy this meditative session with David, and soar in peace and joy!
Why Is Devotion Important? – In this talk, David Hoffmeister shares that Jesus needs a blank mind and a willingness to listen. This talk also explores how to share and extend love, that all problems are handled right now in trust, and an invitation to be happy like a child!
How Do I Move past the Wall of Fear? – In this talk, David Hoffmeister shares about surrender and invites us into our Spirit-given function. What we are practicing is forgiveness, which enables us to line up with the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit only sponsors happiness and joy!

How Can I Have a Direct Experience? – David Hoffmeister invites us to recognize the one Source, one purpose, and one Voice! He also shares about the helpfulness of movie watching as a way to tap into what the ego is trying to cover up.
How Do We Collaborate in Mind with Jesus? – David Hoffmeister shares about the levels of relationships and how to unlearn our past and come back to Divinity. He also reminds us in this session that the Course is not so we can avoid things, but the Course is for letting Jesus direct and guide our life and provide us with miracles to heal our beliefs about those things.
What Is the First Question of the Ego? – This talk contains heartfelt sharings from many participants who want to know about holy relationships and special relationships. David Hoffmeister shares parables about family roles, the value of prayer, and that all that is happening is just for one purpose, to point us back to the mind.
How Do We Return Our Awareness to Heaven? – Mind training is to choose the Voice for God with peace of mind as the reward. Only by knowing who we are, are we healed. As David shares in this session, “I am the One, whose purpose is to know the One.”
How Do We Unwind the Belief in Sacrifice? – In this talk, David Hoffmeister shares several topics: how the Holy Spirit uses our function, how the ego uses sacrifice, and how to give our thoughts over to Jesus and allow the Spirit to correct the distortion of miracle impulses.
Be Humble and Follow – Do not attempt to direct the way to God. Be humble and listen for the sure direction that is given. Follow, and be shown the way.
