    2018 Strawberry Fields Enlightenment Retreat




    Presence - Celebration - Gratitude

    The mystical fields of the Strawberry River Canyon await you! In the breathtaking vastness of the canyon, you will be welcomed into an atmosphere of devotion at the Living Miracles Monastery, the only A Course in Miracles monastery in the world. David Hoffmeister and Kirsten Buxton will hold vibrant, joyful enlightenment gatherings, based on the practical application of ACIM.

    Music is transformational. This year’s festival has an amazing lineup of incredibly talented singer-songwriter ACIM musicians for whom music is their calling. The Presence of the Spirit emanates through their songwriting and music, inviting you directly into an experience of God’s Love, of enlightenment.

    Join us in celebrating the recognition of Who we are through enlightenment gatherings, singing, dancing, jam sessions, campfire songs, a metaphysical movie night, and soulful connections with friends from around the world!

    Join us in the field of possibilities where our focus is the eternal.

    I'm ready to register now!

    Heart Song—Voice Liberation Workshop

    Register now!

    Join us for this intimate workshop where the voice will be used as an instrument to deeply connect with each other and the Spirit. The joy of “being sung through” is a truly liberating experience! Throughout this workshop, our focus will be to “step back and let Him lead the way”. Discovering your inner voice comes from a place of deep surrender and trust.

    As part of this workshop, you will partake in experiential singing and songwriting sessions supported by Spiritual Download experts. The Voice Liberation sessions will be led by Neda Boin and Emily Warwick, who are skilled professionals in both classical and popular music. They have received training to allow the Spirit to facilitate emotional healing through getting in touch with your Inner Voice. In these sessions they will support you in using your voice as a gateway to allow what is ready to come up to the surface to be released. Jason Warwick, Kirsten Buxton, and Ricki Comeaux will also be collaborating in this workshop with experiential, teaching, and movie sessions. We will also be blessed with David Hoffmeister joining us for some movie sessions to support this inner journey.

    This workshop is for anyone who feels a desire in their heart to experience the freedom of letting the Spirit sing through them. You don’t need to have any experience or even a “good” voice. We will use the voice as an instrument to tap into our intuition, and in that, all sounds are beautiful.

    In order to allow for an intimate vibe, there are only 30 participant places available for this workshop. This will allow for a more personalized experience with our two Voice Liberation teachers.

    Enjoy this video from one of our Voice Liberation teachers Neda Boin, as her stunning voice captivates in The Voice of Holland.

    Enjoy this video from our other Voice Liberation teacher Emily Warwick, to go deeper into how the voice will be used during this workshop to strengthen our relationship with the Spirit.

    Live Online Retreat

    “Awakening from the Dream” - Live Online Retreat, September 2018

    David Hoffmeister and friends will once again be hosting this month's retreat. Join us for a full weekend as we explore another life-changing theme!

    This month’s theme is … Into the Mystic!

    The life of Mysticism is as spontaneous and playful as it is serene and tranquil. Alive and energized by the living moment, the need for rituals and rules and structure falls away from the mind. Mysticism learns mastery through love and compassion and kindness, and every day is like a painting full of opportunities to extend the Love of God.

    Mysticism is not ruled by fear of consequences. The Law of Love reigns supremely in Divine Mind, and there is no other. Love is without opposite, and this fact is finally approached and accepted without exception or compromise. In the Awakening, it becomes clear that doubt is impossible.

    Willingness to humbly accept oneself as a Spirit Child of God, created perfect in the likeness of God, grows and grows with each Holy Instant. The world of idols loses all of its former attraction as the heavenly light enfolds the heart of the mystic. When such vastness and magnitude become apparent, there is need of nothing else.

    Meditation on the Divine is at first a practice, then a continuous living experience, until it finally yields to an eternally blissful and completely unalterable State of Being. Such is the State of Grace.

    What is it like to attend an online retreat?

These weekends will feature dynamic teaching sessions, movies, video clips, live music, one-on-ones, and more. It truly feels like we’re right there in your living room with you.

Set your space for a reverent, loving, inward experience.
