All events with David, the elders, and residents in the Living Miracles community are designed to bring about the realization that the Kingdom of Heaven is within and is Now. They live very devoted lives in which every moment is dedicated to recognizing the Truth and to sharing the message of Christ. By releasing all the veils that cover over the Truth, we recognize the peace that passeth all understanding.
Awakening is a total commitment, there can be no exception.
Attention: Participation in one or any of these events may result in unimaginable changes in your life. Happiness is inevitable!
Kirsten Buxton is coming to Japan in October!
Kirsten Buxton is a modern-day mystic, teacher, and author who devoted her life to awakening after a mystical experience. Her life is a demonstration of total trust in the Spirit. The clarity and simplicity shared through her teachings and songs are an invitation to true freedom.
Although Kirsten doesn’t consider herself a musician, she is delighted to immerse in the Presence of God through the sharing of her songs, such as “Holiness”, “Abide in Light”, and “Into the Mystery”. Being in her presence, is a reminder of the peace and Love of God, that is with us always.

Come Join With Us—Virtually, Every Saturday
Every Saturday at 12:00pm CDT (Central Daylight Savings Time), we show a movie ONLINE and give spiritual commentary based on David Hoffmeister's Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment. If you like movies and want to go deeper into the teachings of A Course in Miracles, you can join us for this weekly movie gathering from the comfort of your own home!
In our community, we take a mystical approach to movie-watching. We use them solely to practice watching our emotions, noticing our thoughts, and staying attentive to the Holy Spirit's interpretation of each scene. In this way, we experience great healing in mind, get better at practicing forgiveness, and have loads of fun doing it!
If you've never joined us for an LM Virtual movie gathering, we can assure you it is quite a unique experience!
Each Saturday at 12:00 p.m. CDT (Central Daylight Savings Time). To see what time this is where you live, click here.

"Only Silence can reach that dimension of reality that is too deep for words." ~Thomas Merton
You have an opportunity to spend 21 days immersed in a deep experience. Inside the silence of your heart, there is an open doorway. As we slip through this doorway from our unending thoughts and distractions of the world, we enter into a fresh new reality. This new reality emerges naturally during time devoted to deep contemplation, meditation, and rest. Taking an extended period of time to open to this experience is a fresh and inspiring new way to start the New Year!
Shorter stays are available (see below).
“Keep silent, because the world of silence is a vast fullness." ~Rumi

This 21-day silent retreat is not affiliated with any particular spiritual tradition and is not a teaching retreat. We honor and recognize that all pathways lead to truth. All are welcome!
"The Living Miracles Monastery is one place that you might consider because of its absolute safety, spirituality, neutrality (no control, but rather love) a sacred quest place indeed. Silence is possible and light workers are present. Enjoy the ride!"

A Letter from Jackie
Calico, Suzanne and I have put together ideas for an online grand adventure to start in February 2019. If you’re struggling with illness, are devastated by a diagnosis, or feel that you would benefit from taking a healing look at the root cause of sickness as taught in A Course in Miracles, then this course is for you.
Our title ‘The Inside Passage Home’ was inspired by the symbol of the Alaskan Inside Passage. Some of the Alaska symbols are so amazingly appropriate! The Bering Sea has the largest, deepest underwater canyons in the world. What a symbol for an Adventure into the deeply hidden thoughts in the mind! It’s an opportunity to be like explorers looking innocently on something absolutely new for the first time. Then move on, having witnessed the deep dark caverns, recognizing that they don’t hold some hidden monster, and that they have no power in the light of who you are in Truth.
Like the distractions of the ego, the swirling currents make it difficult to dive deep. But when we do it as a team in collaboration with others who have the same purpose, the results are incredibly revealing.
We have some inspiring thoughts of us all coming together for 5-7 days at the end of our online healing journey, and these ideas are still unfolding. One of the ideas swirling has to do with whales, quiet harbors, and abundant wildlife! Imagine honoring and celebrating such a deep journey with your healing companions in an unknown magical place, yet to be determined by the Spirit!
We would love to take this unique journey with you!
