A 5-day/4-night Residential Weekend Event with Simon Christopher near Valencia, Spain.
We are elucidating the incomparable teachings of A Course in Miracles, in a joyfully focused, healing sanctuary. All welcome!
A new beginning, a new day, renewed in clarity of purpose for a new cycle. This is a moment in between seasons, the end of a cycle and a place to rest and renew, to review our goal and dedication before the New Year engages. We clear out and cleanse ourselves of the past and make a receptive, new space for the unknown to be revealed.
We give our self, our life to God and open our mind to His Voice who directs us in His ways which lead to perfect happiness, freedom and joy. Our present trust is the faith in His love and guidance as we accept His Will as our own and let the new year be a constant revolution from the temptation to form conclusions or fall into established rituals.
Walking with God is a moment-by-moment, creative re-association of your self with your Self without reference to the past. Determine now to hear the Teacher who knows your part and what you must do to fulfil your role in the greater plan of awakening.
“There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening.”
with Simon Christopher
This is an invitation to join us in the illuminate, spiritual mind-training of A Course in Miracles, and the passionate certainty of your awakening to the reality of eternal life!
Come and discover the power and simplicity of the miracle of true forgiveness. And we will celebrate together, the healing of the mind to a whole new identity in the celestial order of perfection and love.
“Christ has come to search the world for what belongs to Him. His vision sees no strangers, but beholds His Own and joyously unites with them.” W.160
God’s love is all around us and His grace is ours as we look to the divinely organized Atonement curriculum of A Course in Miracles, and undertake to learn the happy lessons of true forgiveness which lead us back to where we are at Home in the Heaven of His perfect love. Amen!
We are meeting in a dedicated sanctuary for the discovery of the teachings of A Course in Miracles and your inevitable spiritual transformation and awakening in Christ. In this place, at this time, you are afforded a refuge for the burgeoning awareness of your deep love for God and the certainty that you are beloved of Him as His One Creation. This is a centre for retreat and a sanctuary for the healing of the mind in God and your natural, evolutionary realization that you remain now, as you have always been, perfect and whole as God created you.

“The song begins again which had been stopped only an instant, though it seems to be unsung forever. What is here begun will grow in life and strength and hope, until the world is still an instant and forgets all that the dream of sin had made of it.
Let us go out and meet the newborn world, knowing that Christ has been reborn in it, and that the holiness of this rebirth will last forever. We had lost our way but He has found it for us. Let us go and bid Him welcome Who returns to us to celebrate salvation and the end of all we thought we made.” C-ep.5
