Living Miracles Monastery

Thank you for your interest in our A Course In Miracles Monastery,

a place of devotion, reverence and prayer.

One singular Purpose is held out in front as the guiding light for all that we do here.

This Purpose is to awaken to the truth of our Being. The means for healing and recognizing Truth are forgiveness, as taught in ACIM, and asking Jesus / the Holy Spirit to Guide the way.

A prayerful state of mind and way of life is nurtured through this direction of turning to the Spirit as we are shown what it means to serve 'the whole'.

There is no greater joy than, "I take the second place to gain the first" (ACIM).

Monastery Stays


Regardless of the type or length of stay, coming to the Monastery is for those with a Calling to deepen in relationship with the Holy Spirit and each other. We come to understand the commitment to awakening through living the principles of A Course In Miracles. 

Fall Devotional Stays 

September and October 2021. This is an invitation into full-time devotional community living, in collaboration with Greg Donner and Kirsten, as we dive into a beautiful fall time together, in service to Christ, with Monastery projects as our backdrop. It is through serving a higher Purpose than personal self interests, that the ego is undone. Through following the Spirit, the ego's resistance and autonomy naturally arises to be seen. With the willingness to be transparent; to not hide and protect, deeply held patterns and beliefs are brought to the light and undone.

The Foundation of the Monastery

The Living Miracles Monastery was founded in 2008 by a small group who had been drawn together from around the world through their shared dedication to awakening.

The golden thread linking us was the living demonstration of David Hoffmeister, including the deep teachings that poured through him, and A Course in Miracles being our path. 

The Monastery is currently overseen by one of the founders, Kirsten Buxton, with a small Mystical Community group, which came together in the fall of 2020.
