Awakening Mind Global Community
The Foundation for the Awakening Mind was set up in 1999 to support the work of David Hoffmeister and an emerging global community. The wider community includes everyone who resonates with the non-dualistic teachings shared through Awakening Mind and A Course in Miracles.
The original residence of the Awakening Mind global community is the Peace House in Cincinnati, Ohio, which has undergone a renewal to again become a devotional base of operations, and a publications hub and tour starting point.
The Living Miracles Ministry is part of the wider Awakening Mind global community, and supports the publishing of Awakening Mind materials and those involved with Awakening Mind. Living Miracles has bases in Utah, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. These communities invite visitors and volunteers to join for gatherings, retreats, and devotional stays in support of Awakening.

Living Miracles Metaphysical Center
Welcome to the Living Miracles Metaphysical Center (LMMC) in the quaint and quiet town of Kamas, Utah, east of Salt Lake City. The Center is dedicated to living by the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ. It is the birthing place of Living Miracles TV, an online TV station devoted to the divine expression of Love, and the Living Miracles Music Studio, which has seen the joyful production of spiritually-inspired music CDs, as well as supporting musicians to collaborate, sing, and shine together in the purpose of Awakening. The Center also provides office space for the Living Church Ministries, Inc. board and serves as a main communications base for the global ministry.
Living Miracles Monastery
Living Miracles is a monastery for the 21st century. We have no rituals or rules, nor are we affiliated with any religion. We welcome those from all spiritual traditions and no traditions who feel called to immerse in some quiet time away from the distractions of the world. It is a place of devotion and quiet contemplation.
The monastery is a residence for a small group of mystics who live a life of service, and have devoted their lives totally to Awakening. When they are not serving in the wider community, mystics take deep hermitage and times of stillness at the monastery, and are able to completely step away from activity and into communion with God. The wider monastery grounds include Angels Landing, where a year-round residential community abide, and the Strawberry Fields Campground.
We are the expression of Living Miracles in the experience of forgiveness, and with the purpose of inspiring Love. Our global ministry is based on the mystical teachings of Jesus Christ and provides services, gatherings, retreats, devotionals, a ministerial program, membership, newsletters, an online TV channel, printed materials, teaching videos, music, and hundreds of free online resources.
Family of Light
Awakening to the truth of who we are is a collaborative venture of undoing the ego and learning to live a life that is truly inspired. Our spiritual community is a family of light that has been brought together by a devotion to Awakening that we feel in our hearts. The direct experience of inner peace and connection with the Spirit is what it’s all about. David Hoffmeister is the inspiration that has drawn the Awakening Mind community together. His radiant joy and boundless energy is the effect of letting go of the ego and identifying completely with Spirit.
We welcome you to join our family of Light!
Deepening in Purpose and the Benefits of Mind Training
An excerpt from David Hoffmeister’s book Awakening through A Course in Miracles:
It takes willingness and attentiveness to examine beliefs closely. You begin by just noticing the thoughts that seem to fill your consciousness and you will gain some idea of how body-related they are. As you give your attention to the purpose of forgiveness, you begin asking in every situation: “What is this for? What does this bring me? Is this pursuit bringing me security and connectedness and peace and harmony? If I know where I’m going to be staying, who I’m going to be with, and what I’m going to be doing in the future, what does this really bring me? Has there ever been a lasting peace and security in knowing the past or attempting to figure out the future?” What self-concept has ever brought you a lasting experience of connectedness? ~ David Hoffmeister
