It is our great joy to announce that there will be a 7–day residential retreat with David Hoffmeister and many other devoted ACIM teachers at castle De Berckt in the Netherlands from October 7–13, 2019.
David is a living demonstration that peace is possible. He is world-renowned for his practical application of A Course in Miracles, a non-compromising, non dual pathway to Awakening. His clarity about the function of forgiveness in spiritual Awakening and the purity of the message he shares point directly to the Source.
During the retreat, there will be profound large-group sessions with David as well as smaller, intimate group sessions to integrate the teachings in an experiential way. These sessions will provide a safe, loving space to truly experience the miracle of healing.
Music will be an integrative aspect of this retreat. You will have the opportunity to participate in voice liberation sessions, where the voice will be used as an instrument to deeply connect with each other and the Spirit. The voice liberation sessions will be led by Neda Boin, and Emily Alexander, who will support you to get in touch with your Inner Voice, allowing what is ready to come up to the surface to be released.
This residential retreat is a powerful opportunity to immerse yourself completely in the experience of Truth. The magnificent, tranquil setting and services offered at castle de Berckt inspire and support genuine deepening and healing without the usual daily demands and distractions.
We warmly invite you to this beautiful retreat, and are looking forward to meeting you at the castle in October.
