Earlybird registration for 2012 ACIM Regional Conference in Cleveland, Ohio

I hope to see you there.


David Hoffmeister


for other upcoming A Course In Miracles Conferences.


Never before, in this part of the country, has there been such an event. A Course In Miracles is a rapidly growing Spiritual path that is now available in 16 languages and gaining attention in over 15 countries. It has been in circulation long enough for many to have had the time to gain a deep understand of its principles and expanded metaphysics. And many of those have been lead to take on the roll of "teacher" by living those concepts as well as teaching in the more traditional sense, such as leading an ACIM study group.

The Course says that we are all teachers, however, a few have been called to be the teachers of teachers. We are blessed to have a number of them with us at this event. They will be speaking to you on the theme Who Are You Really? Remembering Who, or as the Coursesometimes says, What you really are, is a major theme of the Course. It's a process of awakening that the Course leads us gently through. Each teacher will help to shed a little more "Light" on the subject, which will accelerate the process. You will be blessed by them all and you will be grateful for this rare opportunity to:


You will get to experience all three Keynote Speakers.
They will be addressing the entire assembly. And they each have their
own unique, powerful and spirited way of delivering the teachings of the Course.

What an incredible lineup of ACIM teachers

There will be a Speakers' Panel
On Sunday morning, there will be an ACIM Panel consisting of the Keynote speakers
and a number of the
ACIM teachers. You will have the opportunity to get your most perplexing
answered by a panel of ACIM aficionados. Some questions you may have had for some time
and some of them will
arise during the conference as the speakers stimulate your thought processes.
We are certain that all of the answers will be clarifying.

The Course talks about them. We're all having them. They can be with a person or persons, thing or things, event or events. But the one that comes to mind when we hear "special relationships" is the one we have with our significant other, male or female. They come from our projections and the belief that we can find love "out there" because it isn't "in here." Of course, this scenario is experienced in many phases -- some quite pleasant -- some quite painful, and over an extended period of time, which can sometimes seem like it was all too quick or it's lasting forever.

Rev. Tony
will be taking you through each phase of the special relationship from A Course In Miracles. Then Rev. Tony, Kathy Sullivan, Irwin Weinberg and the band will be taking you through each phase of this special relationship musically. They will present each phase from the Course and as they are depicted in Rock-n-Roll. FromMr. Lonely to Dream, Pretty Woman to All Shook Up, Let It Be Me to Chapel of Love, Oh How Happy to Satisfactionand right on to Hit the Road Jack (and more), you will get a musical look at the inner workings of the special relationship and be very entertained. It's the most fun way to look at the "special relationships." You'll be singing along with every song and you might even catch yourself getting up to boogie.

In spite of the incredible lineup of speakers, we trust that Rockin' Through A Special Relationship will be one of your favorite parts of the event. It was an overwhelming hit at the 2011 ACIM Celebration, so we're bringing it to you by popular demand. We look forward to seeing you there.

There will be music between the speakers.

There will be music to lift your spirit and your consciousness.
A lineup of professional musicians and singers will delight your musical senses with lyrics,
melodies, harmonies and instrumentations that will resonate with your very Being. The music alone
will be worth the price of admission and you get to experience a list of dynamic ACIM teachers as well.

There will be a dance Saturday night.

So bring your happy feet and your dancing shoes.
The band will be playing a variety of music that will give you opportunity to
deliver your best moves, whether they're rock-n-roll, disco, swing, jitter-bug or your own.
We read in Ecclesiastes that "There is a time to dance" and for us, it will be Saturday night at the Conference.

There will be a Sunday morning Service/Celebration.

Inspiration will abound as the three Keynote speakers,
David Hoffmeister, Earl Purdy and Rev. Tony Senf, and some
of the Breakout speakers, entwine their thoughts with the musical landscape
of a combined choir from area churches and spiritual centers. Enjoy a Sunday morning
message that will live in your heart for recollection and application in those times when you
forget Who You Really Are. It will be combined with music that will have your heart singing, your
toes tapping and you will also find yourself singing the songs long after the Conference has ended.
Add meditation and you have a Sunday morning service like no other to bring the conference to a close.
