Best-selling author and advanced teacher of ‘A Course in Miracles’ comes to Lake Tahoe

Special to the Sun

Gary R. Renard will hold a one-day retreat called “Love Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life,” the name of his yet-to-be published book of the same name, on July 18 at the Cedar House Sport Hotel, Truckee.

Renard underwent a powerful spiritual awakening in the early 1990s.

As instructed by two ascended masters who appeared to him in the flesh, he wrote his first best-selling book, “The Disappearance of the Universe,” based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles, over a period of nine years.

He was later guided to speak in public and has recently been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world.

Gary’s second book, “Your Immortal Reality,” was also a best-seller.

Over the past five years, Gary has spoken in 41 states, 13 countries and was the keynote speaker at the international A Course in Miracles conferences in Salt Lake City and San Francisco.

He is also the most recent recipient of the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award. The award is given to a person who has made a meaningful contribution to personal and spiritual growth.

Past recipients include Dan Millman, Ram Dass, Gary Zukav, James Redfield and Neale Donald Walsch.

The book “A Course in Miracles,” written by Dr. Helen Schucman and Dr. William Thetford, and first published in 1976, describes a purely non-dualistic approach to spirituality.

Schucman dictated the book based on an inner voice, which she described as coming from a divine source. The book uses traditional Judeo-Christian terminology, but is not aligned to the doctrines of any religions or denominations.

Since it first became available for sale, more than 1.5 million copies have been sold worldwide in 19 languages. The Combined Volume, Third Edition of “A Course in Miracles” is the only edition that contains in one place all of the writings that Dr. Helen Schucman authorized to be printed. It is published solely by the Foundation for Inner Peace, the organization chosen by Dr. Schucman for this purpose.

Renard, a noted teacher of A Course In Miracles, offers a way of looking at the world that leads to fearlessness and the full flowering of the human spirit.

The long-term result of practicing the knowledge gained during this retreat will be enlightenment and the end of reincarnation, once and for all.

Come awaken from the dream.
