Gary and Cindy Renard - Miracles in Paradise

Gary and Cindy Renard

July 12, 2014 - July 17, 2014

A quote from Gary Renard:

"We're very much looking forward to returning to Hawaii to lead this retreat for the 3th year in a row!" Everyone had such a great (and deep) time at Kalani this past June that we've decided to make this intensive Workshop an annual event! Go back to a simpler time and experience Hawaii the way it was meant to be.The Hilo (Eastern) side of the Big Island is like going to another planet, especially Volcanoes National Park. And we'll be sleeping in cabins in the rain forest, where the beautiful sound of the tree frogs seem to blend into one voice. After two days here you'll probably be more relaxed than you have been in years."

How To Get In Touch With Your Invulnerability – Your True Spiritual Nature:

There is a way of being in the world that defies the laws of the universe. As the great spiritual teaching, A Course In Miracles, puts it, it is beyond every restriction of time and space, or limits of any kind. It is possible to get in touch with your true nature, which is immortal and fearless. The goal of this intensive retreat is to give you techniques to get in touch with your true nature, and to make it your everyday way of being. Join Gary Renard and Cindy Lora-Renard as they uncover the Truth of your spiritual invulnerability. By the end of this retreat, you will be inspired to look at the world and yourself in a totally different way. The beautiful setting of Kalani is the perfect place to receive these teachings and feel the Oneness with all beings. Set in the rainforest, with the beautiful Pacific just across the street, the stunning views will take your breath away! Plus, Cindy and I will be doing original meditations with you and maybe even some karaoke. There will also be sharing and interaction time between you and us as part of the retreat.


Kalani and the Big Island are truly transformational places where deep learning comes easily along with a whole lot of fun.  We'll have 3 hour morning sessions about ACIM, my books and what ever else you'd like, followed by a gourmet lunch and then a choice of adventures or relaxing at the pool. The excursion choices include a coastal hike, Hilo Botanical Gardens and Hilo bay front shopping. Other excursions are available through outside tour groups (Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Summit tours and lava viewing - approx. $150 per person). Kalani led excursions will be approximately $50 per person.


The workshop will end with Cindy and I leading a guided meditation followed by a bonfire under the moon overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

We'd love to have you join us in paradise for some teachings, healing, adventure, fun...and maybe even some Karaoke.  Aloha!

About the Facilitator(s)

Gary R. Renard

Gary Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality, was born on the historic North Shore of Massachusetts. He became a successful professional guitar player, but during the harmonic convergence of 1987, he heard a Calling and began to take his life in a different direction. At the beginning of the 1990’s, he moved to Maine, where he underwent a powerful spiritual awakening. As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote Disappearance over a period of nine years. In the fall of 2003, after much encouragement from other speakers and students, Gary began to present talks and workshops in public. His speaking career took off remarkably fast, and today he lectures internationally. Combining a disarming sense of humor with radical, cutting-edge metaphysical information and experiential exercises, this acclaimed teacher of A Course in Miracles has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world. Over the past seven years, he has spoken in 43 states, 23 countries, and was the keynote speaker at the International A Course in Miracles Conferences in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Gary 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, Byron Katie, and Neale Donald Walsch.

Cindy Lora-Renard is an innovative and extraordinary musical talent, and spiritual life coach, with a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.   In her music, she blends an eclectic mix of Visionary/New Age, Alternative Pop and meditative sounds with contemporary beats to create a unique style. Her sultry vocals, creative lyrics, and primal rhythms produce a state of mind which takes the listener to higher places where courage, wisdom, and passion can transform.  She has more recently been blending her music with the teachings of A Course In Miracles during workshops with her husband, Gary Renard. 

Born into a family of teachers and musicians and raised in the Midwest, Cindy was exposed to music early in life. As she developed herself emotionally and spiritually, her musical talents matured with her.  Cindy uses her music and degrees as a “healing” tool to help others transform their consciousness into the “higher” vibrations or octaves of life. Her touring schedule with her husband, Gary Renard, is extensive, including performances all over the world, where Cindy participates in her husband’s workshops, singing, guiding meditations, and occasional speaking.  She maintains a spiritual coaching practice in Los Angeles, CA.

Her eclectic CD, "Summer And Smoke," reveals Cindy as a true Visionary Artist. Her second cd, “Journey Through Sound,” is focused on meditation and reflection, exploring the use of sound and chant.  She has just released a new meditation CD with her husband, Gary Renard, called “Meditations For Couples”.  Cindy's visionary lyrical style combined with her spiritual nature provides an unforgettable musical and healing experience. As we enter an age where the old paradigms are challenged to allow new ones to flourish, Cindy's music, meditations, and coaching are right at the leading edge, acting as a bridge to take us into this new way of living. For those who feel drawn to this vision, please join her in an inspiring journey!
