What Does It Mean to Rest in God? – In this online retreat experience, David will lead us through some of the key topics: mighty companions, trust, preferences, the definition of sin, resting in God and forgiving the monkey mind.
What Is Our True Function? – David Hoffmeister takes us on a joyful deep dive into the question of “What is our true function?” And in order for us to raise our awareness to be one with God, we need a lot of help. Jesus is a symbol of that help. Jesus completed his part and accepted the Atonement for himself. He is the first miracle, the last miracle, and all the miracles in-between. Therefore, it’s good for us to call on him and trust that he’s got us covered in the end, despite what we think of ourselves right now. David also provides answers to how to empty the mind and what true helpfulness is.
Married to God – David introduces us to how the Holy Spirit uses symbols, such as rings on our fingers, temporary representations, not an actuality. And these symbols direct our attention, but the Love is what’s important. In this gathering, we also explore guilt that is associated with behaviors, as part of the unholy trinity: guilt, anger, and fear. David reminds us that it is not helpful to try to bring the light into the projected world. It doesn’t work that way; we have to bring the thoughts and beliefs in our mind into the light within, and then they disappear.
Paradise Is a State of Mind – In this retreat, David and friends share the awakening experience of being in alignment with God, with practical examples. They talk about how the world was made by the ego as a distraction from the Spirit, and how to unplug from the concepts of the world and become free of burdens in the mind. Lightheartedness and freedom are not dependent on circumstances or things being a certain way in the world.
Who You Are Is Happiness – In this retreat, David Hoffmeister shares parables and practical examples of a deep inward journey. While searching for happiness in form will inevitably lead to disappointment, David shares that you will become so competent in the presence of the Holy Spirit that you will no longer feel you are in this world, that you will have a big smile in your mind with everything, and that is the point of everything, to be happy, to find true happiness.
Do Only That! – David talks deeply on the theme: “Do Only That!” T-6.V.3:4 This is the most straightforward and simple teaching from A Course In Miracles, and the fast track to Awakening.
