The Joy of Letting Go

The ego tries to convince our mind that letting go requires sacrifice, loss, and pain. However, the Spirit teaches us that we have total control of our state of mind and our happiness! Learn to live in this "happy dance" consistently through this 3-day retreat experience filled with profound teachings from ACIM teacher David Hoffmeister and friends, a full movie commentary session, music, and engaging Q&A.

Testimonials from Past Participants

“For the first time in my life, I think I feel that I am not alone. I didn't know what that meant before. But now I am very grateful for how much the presence of Mighty Companions has helped me. I also feel like I'm getting closer to Jesus and Spirit. Thank you all for this retreat. Thank you very much, David.”


“Wow! What a wonderful and beneficial experience this retreat was for me. With 23+ years as a student of ACIM, I've been to quite a few other multiple-day ACIM retreats. I found this retreat superb for me and absolutely added to all my ACIM mind training!”


“A warm hello to all the ones I listened to during the retreat. From the first moment of the opening session until the last words on Sunday, I was in a wonderful world. The movie touched my heart very deeply. Thank you so much, with gratitude and love.”


Become the Light You Are

There is a brilliant, joyful light at the center of your being and this light is what you are! As you train your mind to focus only on this light, everything else fades away. This light will keep expanding in awareness as you accept your part in the Great Awakening!


  • Is this retreat live?

    No, this 3-day retreat package was originally recorded during a live online retreat called “The Great Awakening” as part of a series of monthly online retreats with David Hoffmeister. However, the presence and liveliness that come through David and the other teachers—along with the intimate style of interacting with retreat participants—makes it feel very much like a live experience!

  • How much time will this retreat require?

    We suggest clearing your schedule for a full 3-day period so that you can fully immerse in the retreat, just like you would if it were live. However, you will have return access to this retreat, so you can watch it at your own pace and review it whenever you like.
