I have given my whole life to God. In return I have received practical miracles that fill me with joy. This joy inspired joining and we have come together under the team name MakeShfyt R.D.A. We have many projects in our pipeline, all of which build on the other and share in a purpose to help the world undo past conflict and realign with a new goal. I Will to share, in as many ways possible the power that forgiveness brings. I am inspired about extending the word of God from my heart and demonstrating its application in my life. I wish nothing more then to share what I have learned and to give as I have received to everyone. May we all remember our inner voice of Reason and accept the holiness and perfection of what we are.

Bruce Rawles was drawn to metaphysics and anything that spoke to the principle of intrinsic interconnectedness in high school; he did the ’spiritual buffet line’ for many years before finally opening A Course In Miracles in 1984. Shortly after, he had an ‘off the chart’ year in terms of external events – his father, grandfather, uncle and a fellow ACIM student all passed on, he went through a divorce, changed where he worked, lived, etc. Finding deep comfort and solace in the poetic language of ACIM, he was involved in several ACIM study groups in northern Calif. before putting the Course on ‘back burner’ status for a few years. In 2007, while housesitting for a friend, he discovered Gary Renard’s Disappearance of the Universe book, which totally re-kindled his interest in ACIM with new insights – “How did I miss that!?!” – that somehow were overlooked in prior readings, and lead to enthusiastic on-going study of Kenneth Wapnick’s prodigious and brilliant work. His second book, The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation, is an ACIM-studies book, available in paperback and Kindle. His weekly ACIM activities include an ’in-person’ study group in Castle Rock, Colorado, an online study group, and sharing on Awakening Together radio.

Being a student/teacher of ACIM since 1977, I have felt perfectly guided by the Holy Spirit, even though I thought I was doing it myself. Apparently I am not the doer. It is Perfect! Willingness, commitment, and developing trust in Spirit has been a blessing wherever I look. Seeing the Course as a way to see what’s valuable and what is not, I step back and let Him lead the way. Trust, Forgiveness, Kindness, Happiness & Perception are thoughts given me. This is what I share. Putting Spirit in charge at my request has given me everything to fulfill the function I came here for. Currently, I am a Minister at Awakening Together Sanctuary and speak every 3rd Sunday Morning. I am on the Board of Directors of both the Teachers of God Foundation and Awakening Together. I am a Co-Founder of ONEMIND Foundation, whose mission is to empower people to empower themselves. I am also the author of The Open Mind, Loving Your Self, and Into ONEness, Thoughts & Prayers Along the Way. I am always available for you.

A single unexpected moment in John Mark’s mid 20’s left him with a vast and dark sense of emptiness. He would spend the next 15 years immersed in feverish worldly activity, trying in vain to fill this emptiness. His “normal” life of businessman, husband, and father had all the hallmarks of great success. But finally, in 2007, he was compelled by some greater force to sell his business and begin the inward search for the peace and happiness that had always eluded him. Almost immediately he was swept up in a tidal wave of Grace. For a man used to control and responsibility, it was particularly unsettling that these miracles began to move and direct his life into uncharted waters. In 2009, he was guided to “A Course in Miracles” and in 2010 “The Way of Mastery”. Instinctively, he knew this was what he had been searching for. It was as though both pathways had been written just for him. The Course and The Way led him to the direct experience of God’s limitless Love and Peace. That experience of Awakening from the dream of separation to the ever present, perfect awareness of God finally brought the causeless Joy and eternal Happiness for which John Mark sought. With great Joy, he now shares that Limitless Love with all as One.

I am a spiritual vixen; think Chelsea Handler meets Joel Osteen. I believe in miracles and the healing power of a good belly laugh. I am a storytelling, a minister, and a potty mouth mommy. I use provocative HUMOR and resourceful WISDOM. I tell the truth. You can all handle the truth. I have a sweet spot for supporting/grooming spiritual leaders. I’ve started and support over 50 sacred circles, Sangha groups and A Course In Miracles study groups across the country. I work one-on-one with the developing artist and teacher as well as internationally recognized names. I’ve presented to groups across the country as large as 8000 members and I am quite cozy at intimate kitchen tables. I draw on my creative background in Hollywood as an award winning writer, producer and actress in TV and film. My presentations are completely entertaining, educationally edgy, and entirely empowering experiences.

It was in 1996 when Robyn Busfield began to recognize the Voice within and the Wisdom we each carry with us. Robyn quickly began to follow the Voice, which soon led her to pick up her life in Sydney Australia and relocate to the United States. It was in California in 1998 where Robyn became a student of Abraham-Hicks and followed their teachings closely for 10 years. During this time she found her loving devotion to the Voice within, and her first book was birthed called It’s Time to Get Selfish. In 2007 she became a student of A Course in Miracles. During her first year of the Workbook lessons of A Course in Miracles, she was inspired to document her personal journey through the Workbook lessons. She shares this personal journey in her book, Forgiveness is the Home of Miracles. In May of 2014 Robyn began her studies in A Course of Love and The Way of Mastery, and heard the call rather quickly to also teach and share from this material.
