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.
Different Spiritual Pathways, One Helpful Belief – David demonstrates and teaches on the idea that to the healed mind, everything in the world of form is the same. And all beliefs are the same in that they are equally meaningless, all except forgiveness. This is the one helpful belief! So to such a mind that has accepted forgiveness, it makes no difference who he is with; a lightness and joy is felt and extended to all. Other topics in this talk include the bottom-up versus the top-down approach to awakening, talking about healing versus living the experience, and the difficulties that arise when judgments are projected and exceptions are made in regard to transferring the training. Enjoy!
Are You Ready to Join Me in Heaven Now? – David Hoffmeister shares an uncompromising session on the peace and freedom of laying aside all self-concepts. The practicalities of guidance and following the guidance are the focus, rather than form outcomes. Other topics include true forgiveness, worthiness, what is valuable and what is valueless, and the joy of extending miracles.
