About Conscious Family Events
Our purpose is creating conscious community with a goal of spiritual awakening. We host the Weekend of Freedom Retreat and Spiritual Roundtables in service of this goal. Using the principles and teachings of A Course in Miracles, we realize that nothing stands between us and our Divine nature! We’d love to have you join us on this journey
Shiryl Kaplan is the founder and co-host of the Weekend of Freedom Retreat, following inspiration and guidance. She said “Yes!” to the vision and trusting! She has been an A Course In Miracles (ACIM) student since 2008, and hosting these annual ACIM retreats since 2012. Her vision became clear when she made a decision to serve, (co-create) with God. She is an Administrator on the Awakening Together online radio forum and co-hosts programs with Dov Fishman on ACIM Gather for A Course in Miracles. and has two regular weekly programs on that venue. Shiryl and her organizing team have recently started a new online venue through a Paltalk “room” called “Spiritual Roundtables” to remind everyone that we’re all the same, all teachers, all students – the goal is to provide everyone an equal voice. Her passion is to gather people together for the purpose of understanding ourselves on a deeper level, through the teachings of ACIM.
Lyn Johnson has been a lifelong seeker of Truth. She has heard the Voice for God since she was a small child. When she was 14, she realized that God was not in the church, and she began seeking in earnest for the Truth. She was a Baha’i, a meditator, a born again Christian and eventually a Buddhist. Still not satisfied, she finally found the Course – the seeking ended.
Since 2003, she has devoted herself totally to studying and teaching A Course in Miracles. Lyn served as the online Sanctuary Director for Awakening Together for 3 years. She is a Deeksha Giver, a Supporting Member of the Community Miracles Center, a moderator on the Disappearance of the Universe Yahoo group, and she is active with One Mind Foundation and Teachers of God Foundation.
David “Dov” Fishman, through the One Mind Foundation, has been instrumental in bringing a tremendous 24/7 resource of online sharing about A Course in Miracles and non-dual metaphysics to the world through ACIM Gather for A Course in Miracles. In addition to Dov’s involvement with ACIM since 1977 as both student and teacher, and numerous other contributions, David is again enthusiastically sponsoring the Weekend of Freedom Retreat.
