4-Day Residential Retreat Weekend at Purley Chase Centre
with Simon Christopher.
A welcome sanctuary for a focussed healing environment and the joyful re-discovery of the singularity of the Word of God expressed through A Course in Miracles. We gather at this time and place where we can give ourselves to the undoing of the false condition of separation, a sickness which takes many forms, and for the inherent healing of our minds in the miracle of our transformed perceptions and rediscovery of the light of our Wholeness in the Mind of God.
“Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use. He needs but very little to restore God’s whole power to you. He Who transcends time for you understands what time is for. Holiness lies not in time, but in eternity. There never was an instant in which God’s Son could lose his purity. His changeless state is beyond time, for his purity remains forever beyond attack and without variability.” T.15.I.15
This Course does not take time but willingness to question every belief we have cherished upon which a special identity of self is established. The power of timelessness is ours, in a holy instant without judgment and free of concepts, where we are released from all false ideas we held to be true that had imprisoned our wills. Now our freedom is possible in the holy encounter with the resurrected Christ who stands before us. Now we come close enough to be touched by God in this encounter, where the gateway to the eternal is open, in the immediacy of an instance of reality.
Our practice will emphasize the immediacy of the instant of healing, the release of the mind and letting go of the controlling aspects that fear has built in place to keep love obscure and God denied. Our emphasis lies in the understanding that illusions are defensive mental constructs that obscure the problem, not the truth. The problem once recognized and seen within and not outside the mind, will give way to the love beyond. We are transformed through true forgiveness, giving welcome to the light and life we share with God through His Spirit who heals all forms of separation sickness. Amen!
his is the miracle of creation; that it is one forever. Every miracle you offer to the Son of God is but the true perception of one aspect of the whole. Though every aspect is the whole, you cannot know this until you see that every aspect is the same, perceived in the same light and therefore one. Everyone seen without the past thus brings you nearer to the end of time by bringing healed and healing sight into the darkness, and enabling the world to see. For light must come into the darkened world to make Christ’s vision possible even here. Help Him to give His gift of light to all who think they wander in the darkness, and let Him gather them into His quiet sight that makes them one.
Purley Chase Centre provides a peaceful, lovely and welcoming environment with board and excellent meals in a spacious country manor that has been extended, refurbished and developed for groups as a retreat centre. Located in Warwickshire, right in the heart of the midlands of England and set in 7 acres of beautiful grounds enhanced by some spectacular specimen trees. The Centre accommodates up to 60 people.
Purley Chase Centre is owned by The General Conference of the New Church whose faith is rooted in an enlightened and balanced approach to Christ-centred spirituality, aided by insights found in the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.
Here in this sanctuary, we are free to remember our singular goal; our love for God and His eternal truth where our reality lies. Here we will encounter both insight into the illusory ego-self construct and experience the grace of resurrected mind, recognized in our brother and our self – and what is false will be seen for what it is and no longer be our choice. We will foster experience through the instructional nature of the teachings and the direct healing forgiveness brings. We will also explore and discover the gifts of God with which we have been entrusted and by our giving of these gifts become restored in our understanding and certainty of the Self Who is our true identity in Christ.
We are joining under the auspices of the Holy Spirit whose purpose is to lead us into acceptance of the Atonement, and to reveal all things in the illumination of our minds in Christ. Peace be unto us and to our brothers who are one with us.
