The Peace Concert – James Twyman
This year marks the 25th anniversary of an event that changed James Twyman’s life. Upon receiving a sheet of paper containing the peace prayers from the world’s major religions he had an experience which led to him putting all twelve to music in one hour. He then decided to dedicate his life to sharing the prayers and has traveled the world, often to countries where wars have raged, to demonstrate the reality of peace found at the core of all these spiritual paths. In many cases James asked people to stop and pray for peace while the concerts were happening and millions responded. In this presentation James will share some of those prayers and tell the stories that led to this remarkable ministry.

James Twyman

James Twyman is the NY Times bestselling author of sixteen books including The Moses Code and Emissary of Light, and is known around there world as The Peace Troubadour, having traveled many to countries at war to share the prayers of peace from the world’s 12 major religions he put to music in 1994.

Jayem (Jon Marc Hammer)

Jayem (Jon Marc Hammer) was the ‘very reluctant channel’ of the Way of Mastery, a profound pathway of enlightenment, which unfolded over years through an extraordinary encounter with Jeshua (Jesus) in 1987. It was the beginning of a long, sustained apprenticeship grounded in a deep and humble devotional gratitude to Jeshua for bringing the “grace-filled Light” that heals, awakens, and transforms. Jayem’s surrendered studentship has blossomed him into a rare master teacher and gifted facilitator. He is known the world over for his compassionate, clear sharing of Truth and for his ability to rapidly help others ‘cut to the chase’ of the pain, wounds, and illusions that are binding them. He is devoted to the correction of the mind, restoration of the true heart and the return to Soul as our only Identity, at one –and at play – both with, and in, the infinite Divine Reality of ‘God’.

Mari Perron

Mari Perron – From the time of her struggles as a rebellious teen, to being a young single mother, and on to working her way (as she thought of it) from shame to respectability, Mari was writing. As she wrote, she thought she “dealt with” her feelings. Mari’s opportunity to do more than “deal” would come. In the tender and revealing time of her friend Mary Love’s grief, after the loss of her infant daughter, a door opened for her to be vulnerable too. Three years later, Mary’s dream of a “new course in miracles” alerted Mari to the nature of a call she’d been feeling for over a year, and in 1998, she became the first receiver of A Course of Love, following in the footsteps of Helen Schucman, scribe of A Course in Miracles.
This new course asked that Mari, and each of us, turn to our hearts, forgive the past, be vulnerable enough to share ourselves in the present, and be creative and collaborative visionaries, creating a new future. This Course, meant to be for the heart what A Course in Miracles is to the mind, is now widely read, and available in four foreign languages, with more on the way.
A lifelong writer, Mari also wrote The Given Self, Creation of the New, and collaborated with Mary Love on The Grace Trilogy. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with her husband Donny and cat Simeon, has three grown children, and four grandsons.

Scott Stabile

Scott Stabile’s inspirational posts and videos have attracted a huge and devoted social media following, including more than 350,000 Facebook fans alone. Scott’s parents were murdered when he was fourteen. Nine years later, his brother died of a heroin overdose. Soon after that, Scott joined a cult that dominated his life for thirteen years before he summoned the courage to walk away. Through writing and speaking, Scott relates these profound experiences as well as everyday struggles and triumphs in ways that are universally applicable, uplifting, and laugh-out-loud funny. Whether silencing shame, rebounding after failure, or moving forward despite fears, Scott shares hard-won insights that consistently return audiences to love, both of themselves and others. Scott is the author of Big Love: The Power of Living with a Wide-Open Heart, Just Love, and Iris. A passionate love advocate, Scott runs daylong empowerment workshops nationally and internationally. Find Scott at his website, www.scottstabile.com, on Facebook, www.facebook.com/scottfrankstabile, or on Instagram, www.instagram.com/scottstabile.

Tina Louise Spalding

After a difficult time and a deep dissatisfaction with life. Tina found solace in the spiritual text A Course In Miracles, focusing intently on its teachings and practices. After ten years of internal transformations initiated by this book, On the summer solstice of 2012 she was infused with a powerful and ecstatic energy as she laid down for a nap. Little did she know that a group of non-physical teachers, known as Ananda, were preparing her for what would become her lifeʼs work, speaking, writing and teaching the core principles of Truth. That summer she channeled Making Love to God.

In the second book that Tina channeled, Great Minds Speak to You, twenty deceased celebrities of the last century each gave a message through Tina. The twentieth contributor to that book was Jesus, the ultimate celebrity in a sense. This opened up yet another amazing journey for Tina, channeling the fascinating and profound,  Jesus, My Autobiography, which has been widely read and accepted in the A Course in Miracles Community. Her daily readings of the ACIM Lessons with a commentary by Jesus afterwards on Youtube are followed by people from all over the world.

Gina Lake

Gina Lake is a nondual spiritual teacher and the author of more than twenty books. She awakened to her true nature in 1999 and has been a channel since 1989. She has a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. In 2012, Jesus began dictating books through her, which she receives in the same way that Helen Schucman received A Course in Miracles. Her teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle’s, Byron Katie’s, Adyashanti’s, and A Course in Miracles. In 2017, Jesus asked Gina and her husband, Nirmala, to offer Christ Consciousness transmissions to groups online. In addition to the energy transmission, these gatherings include a channeled message from Jesus. You can connect with Gina through her website at www.RadicalHappiness.com and her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Gina-Lake-103715656336850/.

Mary Love

Mary Love is the author of Grace, a book that came into being after her infant daughter’s death opened a place that no parent would wish to go.  Even before Grace was born, dreams, foreshadowing the shape of future events concerning her child began. After Grace’s death, Mary’s dream life and the dream lives of two close friends, Mari Perron and Julieanne Carver, began skyrocketing–demonstrating that life does not end, and we are forever connected in or out of time. Mary’s book Grace, embraces a journey filled with confusion and ultimate love. From the judging of “why did this happen?” to the understanding that the “why” no longer mattered, love’s path revealed wholeness. Forgiveness washes away all misunderstandings of truth.

Mary studied film theory and how messages are transmitted. Having lived in Latin America when younger, Anthropology later became a natural point of entry at the University of Minnesota. The act of documenting what it means to truly be alive is reflected in all Mary is drawn to in life. She continues to work closely with Mari Perron via video and writing. This creative partnership has spanned 25 years with an intriguing focus on dialogue opening a new frontier of spiritual awareness.

Post Conference Workshop Descriptions

Scott Stabile – “Writing Yourself” workshop 
Open, honest writing changes lives, especially the life of the writer. Many studies have confirmed what those who keep a journal already know: a consistent writing practice can improve our physical, mental and emotional health.

Writing clarifies. Writing empowers. Writing heals.

In this workshop, author Scott Stabile will guide you through writing exercises designed to help you unlock deeper truths about yourself, so that you can approach your life with a clearer and more expansive understanding of who you are and what you need in order to live a more peaceful and fully realized life. Whether you write every day, or have never used writing as a tool for personal growth, you will benefit from this opportunity to connect deeply with your inner voice. The focus here is not on grammar or technique, but on honest and brave internal exploration, and the belief that writing of this nature can lead to self-discovery and personal empowerment.

Along with the targeted writing exercises, Scott will lead class discussion and share the unfiltered, compassionate insights to which his many readers and listeners have become accustomed.

Scott’s workshops are always intimate, with direct access to Scott. You’ll have ample opportunity to ask questions, share your experiences, and connect with other open-hearted, courageous souls.

Absolutely no writing experience necessary to benefit from the insights you’ll discover in this workshop.

* Developing a new relationship with fear so that it no longer controls us
* Embracing vulnerability and overcoming shame
* Using empathy to deepen connections and invite forgiveness
* Working with anger so that we can release it
* Discovering our most authentic selves
* Recognizing love as our greatest healer

* * * * *

Here’s what past attendees had to say about Scott’s workshops:

“I had no idea of the level of connection, insight and action that would be inspired by one afternoon workshop with Scott. Through love, candid conversation and creative exercises, I emerged ready to take on my fears and excited to make progress toward my dreams while gaining a new-found support network in the wonderful people I met during the workshop.” – Kristin H.

“I can’t say enough good things about Scott’s workshop. He is such a warm and loving presence and it is felt the moment you enter the room. I felt safe and supported by not only Scott but the participants. I learned such valuable tools and techniques that afternoon. I have already put in to practice what I learned and will continue to do so for many years to come. Highly recommended.” – Danelle S.

“If Scott comes to your town, GO to his workshop. Drop everything and GO. You will walk away feeling more aware of yourself, and most likely more at peace with yourself. I sure did. The writing exercises are exceptional, but there’s something about Scott specifically that blew me away. Such wisdom and compassion. And he’s really funny too. Like I said, JUST GO. You will be so grateful you did.” – Jenny K.

Brother Sun, Sister Moon Musical
In February, 2020 James will bring his one-man musical “Brother Sun, Sister Moon” to the Off-Broadway stage, but it will be shared at this conference first. The musical, based on the life of St. Francis of Assisi, tells the story of one of the most beloved saints in history. Francis comes to life and shares the intimate details of his conversion and the ministry that changed the world in the thirteenth century, and how we can do the same today. Next year, as he makes his way to the Broadway stage, James will travel across the US imitating St. Francis – penniless and relying completely on the help of other people. Forty miles outside New York he will be met by hundreds of people who will walk into the city with him as a sign of peaceful action. Don’t miss the chance to see this powerful musical before it goes to New York.

Mari Perron and Mary Love – “We Are All Illuminators; The Energy of Us”
Our power is hidden in plain sight. This power is not a singular response but a movement into true creatorship which cannot ever be done alone.
It is the Energy of Us. And this movement is electric.
What is below the surface of this movement? Each of us has given our power away, gladly, discounting what moves within us. When this is done we set up a resistance, a blinding of our own power within. Can we surrender to one thought? That we are all illuminators?
We are all illuminators.
How long can each of us downplay, or stuff, our own innate wisdom in fear that it is not “enough”? This is what is spoken of in A Course of Love (ACOL), where Jesus requests that each of us move together, that the end of learning is here. Jesus has passed the baton to us. We are the Power.
Mary Love was inspired to share The Energy of Us. Together with Mari Perron, they will speak of the way they have experienced this energy and the way that ACOL acknowledges it. Our inner individual gifts extend from inner knowing. The vehicle is Relationship and the delivery system is Dialogue.
Let’s get out of our own way and begin moving together.

Jayem Hammer – “Living Practices of the Way of Mastery”
Based on our discoveries during the Conference sharing, together we will immerse in Some of the key Living Practices of Way of Mastery, discovering that the ‘holy spirit’ is a living vibrant energy/intelligence Jeshua called the ‘shem’; all of His original teachings were about ‘attuning to the flow’ of Light. In lively diads we will learn how to rest more deeply than ever and to guide others via Radical Inquiry to move beyond the superficial levels of Idea/Belief that must finally give way beyond ‘mind’ and open us as Living Soul. What if body and world were never an error, but opportunity to incarnate Christ, and that ego and even fear are transformed into angels when met with Love and Presence?
Come ready to ‘set aside all thought of what you have believed’, to rest in the playful innocence of our real Being, to be changed, opened, and transformed! At this workshop you will:
*Heal the fundamental wounds of Incarnation.
*Heal the dynamics of the ego-mind.
*Master the Breath and self-observation.
*Master Forgiveness.
How to unfold Love by serving the Whole.
*And to realize the fullness of the Christ

Jon Mundy and Carol Howe – “Limitless Love and True Forgiveness”
Jon Mundy and Carol Howe bring 80 years of combined experience studying and teaching A Course in Miracles. They are the only living friends of the scribes of A Course in Miracles that are still teaching. They will be sharing their experiences with the scribes as well as what they each have learned in each of their over 40 year sojourn with the Course. They are interesting, fun, profound, and inspiring. They each bring to the table, ACIM with a twist, and teach from sharing their life experiences.

Tina Louise Spalding, Jesus, My Autobiography

During the main conference Tina will be sharing about ACIM and her Kundalini Awakening leading to  the channeling of Jesus and Ananda. She will channel Jesus and ask him to teach on the event theme of unlimited love and true forgiveness.  At the longer post conference workshop she will channel Jesus with a Q and A session. Participants will get to feel the energies generated in person by the transmissions and they will have the opportunity to ask any question of Jesus they wish.
