See the Whole Where Pieces Once Seemed to Be – The ego-made perception hides reality behind a cracked mirror with fragmented pieces, where everything is seen as its own separate piece, a person, a cat, an atom. When we perceive only the pieces, it gets very confusing. When we focus on the parts, we open our mind to the thought of attack. Deep inside we know, seeing the world as a whole is the answer to our happiness.
How Can I Know Eternal Happiness? – David Hoffmeister is living proof that constant peace and happiness is possible. A Course in Miracles is one pathway among many that lead to the one experience. In this session, David uses many examples from his life to show us what it is like to be curious about love and truth.
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!
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.
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!
