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 and Mexico. These communities invite visitors and volunteers to join for gatherings, retreats, and devotional stays in support of Awakening.

Deepen in awareness of spiritual connection and present peace! Set against the charming and vibrant backdrop of Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, the Awareness Center of Mexico is the perfect place to nurture the spirit within by coming together with others who have a deep call for Awakening.
You will be welcomed by the community here who have devoted their lives to inner peace and to the remembrance of our Oneness. We invite you to leave the busy world behind and experience the gift of true connection when we come together with the Shared Purpose of seeing the Christ in one another.
At the Awareness Center, we offer: a space for potlucks to enjoy one another’s presence and to share from the heart, movie gatherings where the deep metaphysical underpinnings are shared before, during, and after the movie in order to enlighten and heal the mind, a garden with quiet nooks for prayer, meditation and contemplation, and a choir for those in the Living Miracles community to share and extend the gift of song.
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.
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
