Master Peace is located in Duchesne, Utah and was opened in 2011 as a retreat center and base of operations for various aspects of the Foundation for the Awakening Mind. It has been gloriously used by the Spirit for deep joinings in an isolated, tranquil environment, perched atop the Strawberry River Canyon.
Master Peace Retreat is located about 25 minutes from the Living Miracles Monastery. The grounds of Master Peace offer opportunities for peaceful meditative walks and the atmosphere is very still atop this serene, rural canyon. The house has three bedrooms, a bunk room, a gathering space combined dining room with a big fireplace, as well as a beautiful garden room and two community showers and bathrooms.

I Want to Feel Inspired!
I want to feel inspired! is the prayer of the heart that longs to be in service to the Divine, to feel the joy of Spirit and the remembrance of peace. The prayer for inspiration or to hear Spirit, or the Voice for God, is the prayer of many of our volunteers and retreatants. Many share their experiences and thoughts with us through our blog pages. One volunteer speaks about inspiration:
Inspiration has always been a mystery to me, well that was until recently! I had often heard people talk about how they were inspired to do this, that, and the other thing, and when I questioned them about it they said, “Well, it’s just sort of a feeling.” So after questions and answers like that, I was still clueless as to whether or not I was being inspired to do things, or I was just doing them because Spirit’s Voice was suggesting that it was the best course of action for that time.
Now this was all well and good, as I just trusted the voice, and went with it knowing that if I did, the end result always ended up with me having a flowing, peaceful time. However I still noticed my frustration in being around people who are all bubbly with inspiration. I could still feel myself asking the same old question, “What are they feeling and how do I get me some?”
Questions like that ended a while ago when I felt an overwhelming feeling of inspiration to go and do something. Wow, what a feeling it was. It was more like a feeling of, if I didn’t do it I would explode. This feeling just had to be extended into what I was doing. It had to be extended and shared in the world, and that’s when I realized what inspiration was for me. And yes, I had felt it before (albeit, never as strong).
Over the next few days with this continuing feeling, I started to become very clear on how this was working for me. The times when I had felt it before were when I was sharing with others about my experiences or latest insights. In fact, actually joining with them long before I knew what “joining” was. I was connecting with others on a level beyond the proximity of the bodies and extending and sharing in new ideas. I now realize that inspiration and the feelings around anything for me are in joining with Spirit. The only criteria seem to be that I am joining with Spirit, or through Spirit’s symbols of my brothers and sisters, when I am doing it.
Inspiration is an experience, a feeling, either powerful or gentle, it is a knowing that I am walking and trusting in Spirit in all that I do and say. Additionally, I have noticed that, at the moment for me, when Spirit is literally doing things through me, the feeling is very strong, irresistible, and involuntary. When that happens I am in a total feeling of exhilaration and peace, Love, and joy. If this is the start of the happy dream as Jesus describes it in the Course, then I am in, and Spirit can just hold me and decide for me in each and every moment.
Now when people ask me what inspiration is, I will be telling them that it is an experience that, once felt, will ensure you walk with Spirit from that time on.
