Opening to Love- A 2-day Course in Miracles Retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Are you ready for more peace, more love, more joy? Done being ruled by fear?

Love is what you are. It's the stuff you are made of and it's the most powerful force in the world. But the ego mind works hard to prevent the awareness of love and to convince you that other things are more important. If you don't take the time and make the commitment to connect with your true essence, life can feel hard, meaningless and draining.

Get away to beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico for fun, relaxation and re-connection (and, oh, the food!). Enjoy the expansiveness of the land and the sky and immerse yourself in the green chili experience. Lodging options range from dirt cheap (camping) to affordable with or without character (El Rey, Ft. Marcy, Hyatt Place) to super luxurious (Ten Thousand Waves, Ojo Santa Fe) and everything in-between.

And, while you're here, let go into Miracles. Remember what it feels like to open into love, soften into your heart and allow life to flow. Identify and remove the blocks that keep you stuck in fear, anxiety and worry and learn to trust the natural rhythm of life and welcome the support of the universe. 

In our two days together, we will cover topics such as:

  • · The ego and separation
  • · The way we see
  • · I’m not the body (then what?)
  • · Forgiveness and Guilt
  • · Obstacles to Peace
  • · A New Beginning
In person, outdoor workshop in Santa Fe on Saturday, May 22nd (10-4) and Sunday, May 23rd (10-2)
Investment $257 (lodging not included) until May 14th, then $297. Click here to register or call 303-762-8994 or email

Letting Go into A Course In Miracles


This group is for those inspired by the teachings in A Course in Miracles and want to live the principles more fully. We gather every month both in person and on-line to discuss the lessons and let go of the thoughts and feelings that may be preventing a complete embrace of the course by using Sedona Method Releasing to flush up and release subconscious blocks. In-person meetings are currently held on the third or fourth Saturday of the month. Please join the meetup group for more information and to register.
