Good News! with Barret and Charlie

“A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s.” -ACIM, Manual for Teachers. Are you willing to be a teacher of God? It is simply the choice to be kind and loving rather than fearful and judgmental. Did you know that you’ve already made that choice? We will be going deeper into the essential characteristics of this way of living, which include honesty, gentleness, tolerance and joy!

Barret Hedeen and Charlie Roberts are students as well as teachers of A Course in Miracles and its thought system of love. They’ll be teaching and guiding this event with an abundance of light-heartedness and laughter, so helpful in dispelling the ego’s fears and misconceptions. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions as well.

 About the teachers:

Charlie Roberts has been on a spiritual journey for over 40 years. He was introduced to ACIM in 2009 and shares his experiences with joy and humor. Charlie leads several ACIM study groups each week and works with individuals on a one-on-one basis. He is also a practitioner of Pure BioEnergy Therapy, a healing technique that aids the body in healing itself.

Barret Hedeen is the author of two books about his spiritual path, Questions for Jand the Love that He Gave Me, as well a collection of poetry entitled Poems for J. He is the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a non-dualistic form of healing to help you remember the truth that lies within. Barret leads retreats and workshops around the country, with an emphasis on joy, wholeness and healing.

Accessing Knowledge Through Intuition

Intuition is a powerful sixth sense we can use to navigate through life’s experiences. This extra sense, when tapped, opens us up to a world that’s fascinating and extremely helpful. Are you aware of this gift you have? Do you know that you always have guidance with you? Do you know that you can tune into your energy centers to find answers to the problems unique and personal to you? Are you ready to have a more authentic life experience, in more ways than one? There are a bounty of tools and techniques that are available to help us connect to internal wisdom. This internal wisdom is a connection to our higher spiritual self and everyone has this ability!

Barret Hedeen and Bhairavi Shera are experienced travelers on this spiritual pathway. Barret is the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a modality to reveal the light within by letting the false shadows surface and undo. He is the author of two books about his spiritual path, and leads workshops and healing retreats around the US and beyond! Bhairavi’s intuitive foundation comes from her experiences with Jain Philosophy and her own mystical spiritual experiences. She carries a masters degree in communication sciences and disorders and has merged spiritual practice with clinical knowledge to further understand how language is used as medicine. Together, they will provide you with an expansion in understanding of your personal gifts as well as helping you to experience them within yourself!

A Soul’s Journey – Uncovering Your Past Lives

What things have you experienced before this life? What influences do they have on you presently? Where were you before you were here? Our past lives provide the backstory to the life we are living here. The more we know about them, the more we know about ourselves.

Barret has been assisting souls like yourself in seeing more of themselves, as the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a healing system based on non-duality. In this experiential time together, you will explore what karma has led to the experience that you are now having, with the goal of coming to release it and know your true self, one of love and of peace.

Clearing the Way for Spirit Retreat in Boulder!

Using Healing to Reawaken Your Truth

Are you living your life from a place of joy, from a place of peace?  The only thing getting in the way to that experience all the time is an old association in your mind.  We are all dealing with this deep, universal issue of mistakenly believing that we are in some way apart from Divinity itself.  Luckily for all of us, this is not true.  But, since it may be your experience, finding the avenue that leads out of this and into a deeper sense of your true reality is the path to peace and joy.

Energy healer Barret Hedeen will be guiding you on a journey into and through the dark spots within to help you claim your inherent love and happiness.  This weekend of healing will incorporate inspired movement, group energy healing and deep inner dives.  We’ll be moving through the inner places asking for healing in a light-hearted and deeply compassionate way.

Major parts of the weekend experience will be diving into the teaching of A Course in Miracles and its undoing of time, Healing through Past Lives, and Tuning into our Major Energy Centers – the Chakras!  This will all be taking place in the wonderful and rejuvenating Peaceful Meadow Retreat Center in Boulder, CO, offering us the perfect setting for integrating the wonderful shifts that will be occurring!

Barret Hedeen is the founder of Miracles U! – an Academy for A Course in Miracles. He is the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a non-dualistic form of healing to help you remember the truth that lies within.  He guides you through past life issues to help you step free of unconscious karmic dynamics that are playing out in your life. Barret has written two books about his experience with the Course, Questions for J and the Love that He Gave Me, and Poems for J.
