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.
Body as the Means to Heal the Mind – When the body is given much of the attention, the body becomes the end, and the mind is enslaved by the ego. The mind trains and works hard, getting more and more stressed, in order to benefit the body figure. When ambitions, goals, the future, and the body are all given back to the Spirit, the mind can breathe again, feel free and connected to the source. And the vitality and vibrancy of being used comes in.
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.
The World Is a Dream – David shares an opening night gathering in Monterrey, Mexico. Topics include releasing attachments to time and roles and forgiving the belief in death and loss.
