The Early Years
David Hoffmeister began his journey to spiritual Enlightenment in 1986 when he encountered A Course in Miracles and recognized it as the tool he had been seeking for a radical transformation of his mind and perceptions. In the early years, he studied the Course with passionate intensity, often reading it for eight or more hours a day. Among family members, friends, and teachers, David had always been known for questioning everything. Thus, he was delighted to find in the Course support and encouragement from the voice of Jesus for his careful examination of every idea, belief, concept, and assumption.
It wasn’t long before David began to hear Jesus speaking to him in his mind as a clear stream of thoughts. Jesus became David’s internal teacher, answering his every question and giving him practical guidance regarding the day-to-day management of his life—his work, finances, relationships, etc. Over time it became clear that this guidance could be relied upon for answers to his every practical need.
After two and a half years of studying ACIM alone, David began seeking the company of other ACIM students, attending as many as five groups a week. At these groups, he was startled to find that instead of just speaking to him, Jesus then began speaking through him! Due to the clarity and authority that could be felt, many students in these groups began referring their questions to David.
In 1991, David was guided to make a leap of faith and began traveling around the United States and Canada, sharing his clarity of understanding related to the Course. He followed Jesus’ instructions to “become as a child,” allowing himself to be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit for money, transportation, shelter, food as well as for the words to speak in any given encounter. He was guided to visit countless ACIM gatherings, churches, metaphysical and spiritual groups, as well as a host of persons who knew nothing of the Course. David found that in all encounters, it was his constant joy and peace that was the best teacher of all.
As he had instructed the apostles 2,000 years earlier, Jesus also told David, “Freely you have received; freely give.” Thus David has never charged for his time, teaching, or any of the many materials he gives away, but has been supported entirely by love offerings. Through countless miracles in which he was supported in ways that could never have been anticipated, David learned that he could perfectly trust the Holy Spirit to provide for him and be his constant guide in every situation. Everything that was ever needed to accomplish his purpose as a teacher of God was given without effort or strain.
The Peace House and Community
In 1996, David was guided to purchase a small house in Cincinnati, Ohio, which he named the Peace House and where he welcomed those desiring to step back from the world to discover the Christ within. A community gradually began growing around him, and this community is known today as Living Miracles. With all the global travels that have taken David to 44 countries around the world, Living Miracles centers have since sprung up in Utah, Spain, Mexico, and Australia. They have supported David in extending his non-compromising teachings through a vast internet ministry of audio and video forums, written publications, inspirational gatherings using music and movies for Awakening, live stream web events, and Enlightenment retreats at the Living Miracles Monastery.
For those who hope that Enlightenment in this lifetime is possible, David is pure inspiration. His gentle demeanor and articulate non-compromising expression touch all who listen. Open your heart, be guided through this website to his clear message of original innocence, and experience the inevitable Awakening to your true Christ-Self.

The Experience of a Modern-Day Mystic
David: “My presence hasn’t changed in many years. I retired when the body was 34. I gave the body and the mind and everything over to Jesus. Jesus told me this would happen. He told me, ‘You won’t have a career.’ And at that point—it was 1991—I was hearing Jesus’ voice on a daily basis, instructing me in a very conversational tone. It made my life extremely easy; never had a difficult decision to make. For myself, I was told where to go, who to meet, what to do, what to say—very, very practical.
In that year, Jesus said, ‘Now you are mine. You have no life of your own. No future ambitions. No future goals.’ That was the end of my human will. And with it came a very deep peace that seemed to grow stronger in those early years. It got deeper and deeper. Like I was watching a movie. Like the world was a fairy tale. I wasn’t striving to make anything different. I didn’t have any motive to convince anybody of anything. I was just in a deep acceptance. Then the gifts of the Spirit started coming very strong and in many different ways, like using music and movies. I still marvel at how the symbols get used. I never take anything for granted. It always seems amazing and marvelous. We can all learn from the mystical teachings of Jesus.”
