Touched by God in an Instance of Reality – Warwickshire @ Purley Chase Centre
Feb 17 @ 11:00 am – Feb 20 @ 4:00 pm

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

touched by god in an instant of holiness

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.

Diamond Mountain Retreat – Arizona @ Diamond Mountain Retreat Center
May 12 @ 4:00 pm – May 25 @ 1:00 pm

A 13-day retreat at the Diamond Mountain Retreat Center in the Chiricahua Mountains near Tucson, Arizona. – In this remote and expansive mountain environment we are afforded an invaluable opportunity to leave distractions behind in our need to find certainty in the continuing re-discovery of the Self God created as our one identity. This is a dedicated time and place to expound and illuminate the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and through direct understanding, find a very real means for the transfiguration of self and awakening in Christ.

We would love to see you there. Let us know if you’re interested in participating via the Contact form.

“As we share the peace of the world with our brothers, we begin to understand that this peace comes from deep within ourselves. The world we look upon has taken on the light of our forgiveness, and shines forgiveness back at us. In this light we begin to see what our illusions about ourselves kept hidden. We begin to understand the holiness of all living things, including ourselves, and their oneness with us.”  W-578.5

It is our great joy to invite you to this unique, high desert wilderness retreat for the continuing re-association of mind with Mind and a singular focus on the Atonement curriculum of the mind-training of this Course in Miracles. Understanding and experience are necessary – and this is a sanctuary dedicated to both. Overcoming the apparent reality and intensity of the unreal, errors of mind and their manifestations are all part of this transition to the healed mind that knows its Self and its Source as One.

We are remembering together, a long-forgotten song – the memory of a present Cause, in an instant of reality and forgiveness. In this remembering no obstacle can be found to obscure the purity of our single desire for God, and keep from us the awareness of the reality of our unchanging Self which abides forever in the heart of Peace. 

The greatest need of the human is to find the deep silence of the mind, where truth arises spontaneously, where no ego can abide and all things are seen from the proper perspective of reality. The high desert environment can be a welcome respite from the frenetic density of existence and a great assist in quieting the “thunder of the meaningless”. Without the usual walls, partitions and distractions that continually confine us in a private, separate world, the wilderness and its spaciousness can help contact and move through the underlying primordial separation-fear, to the expansive freedom of mind in the greater universe of God and the infinite love of Christ-being.

The desert has historically been a place of spiritual refuge and retreat for adepts which demands an acute presence of awareness. There the mind discovers a communication beyond littleness, a great richness of life and spirit in its apparent austerity.



“The desert is the environment of revelation, genetically and physiologically alien, sensorily austere, esthetically abstract, historically inimical…. To the desert go prophets and hermits; through deserts go pilgrims and exiles. Here the leaders of the great religions have sought the therapeutic and spiritual values of retreat, not to escape but to find reality.”

Paul Shepard, Man in the Landscape.
