Speaker Schedule

Retreat Schedule


Saturday morning:
We will discuss  what the Cayce Readings say about desire and the right use of will. We will examine our lives and take a look at our behaviors and identify the patterns that hold us back and bind us to our past.  We will work with affirmations to help us "change tracks" mentally and physically and begin to work spiritualizing our will to act on fewer selfish desires.
Saturday Afternoon:

Spirit (Soul) is the Life, Mind is the Builder, the Physical is the Result. We will examine what thoughts and actions release psychic energy within us that helps move us forward to our future. " To see how it works, this person was told in a reading from Mr. Calyce: "The body expects to be in distress and it remains in distress. For what one builds in the subconscious of itself, it becomes - rather as a habit..." (3287-2)
Saturday Evening:
Our Body is the temple of the living God, of the living Soul. Our time of birth, place of environment, are signs, omens, marks along the way. But these signs do not design a destiny. When we are out of attunement, we lose our power and ability to coordinate with our Creator. We will examine ways to rejuvenate the physical body to balance and heal our mental and spiritual bodies.
Sunday Morning:
"First know thy spiritual processes. Ye know thy ideal. Now correlate same with the application of thyself in the material associations and ye will find in same peace and harmony, as well as the ability to carry on" (2925-1) We will find our "Inner Rule" we live by each day and take home two forgiveness prayers to improve the quality of our lives.
