What Is Beyond the Body? – The body is in the mind; the mind is not in the body. In this online session, David delves into what it means to go beyond the body. To go beyond the body, we have to start to think of ourselves as an idea. We have to learn to come back to our mind. Enjoy this interactive session with teachings and music.
Release from Fear – In this gathering, David walks us through fear, lack, and needs. It seems in this world, money is a source of life, and we are sustained by it. He shares about unwinding from these concerns by following the loving heart by asking: how would love spend money? When we identify with the body, attached, attracted, or repulsed, there is a lot of fear. David invites us to relax, to trust and have faith that everything will come and show us we are beyond this world. We have never lived in this world for one second. We don’t get out of something that’s real; We see that it was unreal and stop taking anything seriously.
Projection and Its Undoing – David talks about trust, integrity of mind, and following guidance, by letting the Spirit lead the way. Guidance can be very specific, which helps to undo preferences and develop trust. The ego peoples its world, and the characters in the world are neither real nor whole. Special relationships and that projection are not interpersonal. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Those characters represent grievances. And David reminds us that empowerment of the mind is the focus, rather than personal empowerment.
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.
