My Prayer of Acceptance

There is only one Life. This Life is good; this Life is God; this Life is my Life now! I know that this Life is a source of Infinite Intelligence, acting in me, through me, and all around me. And even though I may not know how to obtain the means to attend this Sacred Days of Creative Living Retreat, I know that this Intelligence knows, exactly how to provide everything necessary for me to be in attendance. Therefore, I fully accept the physical and financial means that are so graciously provided by the Presence of the Christ in me. I now release any thought, belief, idea, attitude or suggestion that I might hold that does not fully support my attendance at this Retreat. As I accept this Good into my life, I give thanks with an open, gracious and joyous heart. Amen.

Testimonials from Attendees
  Following area number of unsolicited testimonials from individuals who have attended the “Sacred Days of Creative Living Retreat.”
It is not very often in ones life that such expansive experiences enter into ones consciousness, such as was the case during Sacred Days of Creative Living. I came away with a presence of mind that was filled with wonderment, insight, peace, joy and of course love. This opportunity of creative expansion will be a cornerstone in the foundation of my ministry. ...Bob Hefferman
