April 19, 2017•221 min
This recording is of the opening session of the "Going Deeper" 3-day retreat held at the Living Miracles Monastery in Utah with David Hoffmeister, Messengers of Peace Jason Warwick, Suzanne Sullivan, and Frances Xu, as well as special guest James Twyman. In this opening sharing circle, David welcomes everyone to the retreat and invites them to all share a bit about why they came. It is such a great witness of openness and willingness to dive deep!
After all the participants share, David then goes into a very deep teaching session (starting at just under the 1 hour, 52 minutes, and 55 seconds). One primary idea that gets explored is: “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world" (A Course in Miracles, T-21.In.1:7). The topic of politics and choosing political sides is also explored in conjunction with this profound idea.
Recorded April 16, 2017 at the Living Miracles Monastery near Duchesne, Utah.
