“A book that is destined to be one of the most significant contributions to spiritual literature in this century. The message in Gary Renard’s The Disappearance of the Universe is of great importance to the healing of ourselves and our planet.”
"Love Has Forgotten No One is not really a book. Rather it's a portal, a transport system, a re-arranging of the mind. When you've finished reading it, I believe you'll be closer to knowing your True Nature. All that, and Gary's funny too!"
"These are great books."
The Official Website of Best-Selling Author Gary R. Renard
"Most people familiar with A Course in Miracles learned of it through Marianne Williamson and, more recently, Gary R. Renard, both best-selling authors of spiritual books. "The Colorado Gazette
The Combined Volume, Third Edition of A Course in Miracles is the only edition that contains in one place all the writing that Dr. Helen Schucman, its Scribe, authorized to be printed. It is published solely by The Foundation for Inner Peace, the organization chosen by Dr. Schucman in 1975 for this purpose.
This Combined Volume also includes the Supplements to A Course in Miracles: "Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice" and "The Song of Prayer." These sections are extensions of the Course principles, which were dictated to Dr. Schucman shortly after she completed A Course in Miracles.
Gary's Opinion of the Urtext
Dr. Kenneth Wapnick and Gary Renard during Gary's first trip to California in 2004. Ken and Gary met in Roscoe, New York in 1998 and were friends until Ken's transition in 2013. When he was asked during a class about The Disappearance of the Universe, Ken said in public, "The book does not alter the meaning of the Course, and it has helped a lot of people." That is the only time Ken ever commented publicly about another Course teacher's work. In order to not show favoritism, it has always been the policy of both The Foundation for A Course in Miracles and The Foundation for Inner Peace, publishers of the Course, that they do not endorse anyone else's books. So Ken's public comment was surprising.
Here Today, Gone to Maui...
I'm very excited to tell you about our next Retreat this coming July in my beloved Hawaii. This Retreat is different than anything we've ever done before. It's taking place on the incredible Island of Maui, the first Retreat that we've done there. I've been to five of the Hawaiian Islands, and I have to agree with what some of the Hawaiians say, "Maui no ka oi," which means "Maui is the best." This exotic locale is truly one of the most beautiful places in the dream, and we're having the Retreat at a great venue, the Wailea Marriott Resort and Spa, which is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the Island, and right on the ocean, with great beaches and panoramic views of the neighboring islands.
The Retreat is from Friday, July 10 to Sunday, July 12. There will also be an optional, and wonderful Dolphin Discovery and Snorkel Adventure Cruise on Monday, the 13th, and of course you have the option of staying before or after the Retreat. Two great teachers will be doing the Retreat with us, our friends Michael and Raphaelle Tamura. Michael is a best- selling author and psychic, and both he and Raphaelle are Reverends. In fact, they actually performed Cindy and I's wedding ceremony! (It just so happens that Cindy and I's 6th wedding anniversary is that Saturday, the 11th. Yes, 7-11 has always been a lucky day for us.) Michael is actually a "split" of mine, which is something we'll discuss at the Retreat.
I really think this is going to be our greatest Retreat ever. You can see all of the details of what is going to be taught and what is included at the link below. Plus we'll be available to answer your questions about the Course, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about Maui, which I know pretty well. The official title of the Retreat is, "Awakening to Love's Presence: Purpose, Process and Practice," but I'm just calling it the "Here today, gone to Maui" Retreat. I hope you'll join us for this exciting adventure! To register, please contact Michael and Raphaelle's office at tel: 530-926-2650.

May the Light of Truth illuminate every step of your way home and the Love of God guide you in your every act.

What a well known student/teacher of A Course in Miracles says about
The Disappearance of the Universe:
"As a long time spiritual seeker as well as an experienced student and teacher of A Course in Miracles I must say that this is easily the best book ever written about the Course. There's one test that says it all. People have been reading other books about the Course for 30 years. Then they go back to reading and studying the Course themselves or at their study groups and they still don't understand it. I know. I've seen them and been one of them. But then this book comes along and people are excited and reinvigorated about the Course because after reading it they go back and read the Course or go to their study groups and they really understand it! That's NEVER happened before. Not with Marianne Williamson's or Robert Perry's books or anyone else's. Plus new students are coming to the Course with excitement and understanding. Thanks, Gary Renard, whoever you are, and your Teachers. With The Disappearance of the Universe ACIM is a whole new ball game. And a lot more fun!" ~ Rachel Azorre
What Another Long Time Student of A Course in Miracles says about, The Disappearance of the Universe
For me, Gary's books helped me understand ACIM more than anything else I'd ever read. I was introduced to ACIM 15 or 16 years ago and tried to do a study group, but I didn't understand a lot of it. I read Marianne Williamson's books and Jampolsky's book and enjoyed them, but they didn't really explain the course. Finding Gary's first book was so synchronistic for me, it was amazing. Then everything in it resonated with me so much, and I had so many "aha" moments while reading. There were so many times where I was able to see, "Oh, that's what that means." Gary's books inspired me to pick up ACIM again after 15/16 years, and now it really makes sense. I feel it in my soul. I am eternally grateful for that" ~ Julie Davis

About Gary R. Renard
Gary R. Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality, and Love Has Forgotten No One 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 1990s, 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.
During the last few years Gary has been busy teaching (and sometimes introducing) A Course in Miracles in 26 countries and 44 states, with multiple visits to many of those countries and states; He’s done hundreds of radio and print interviews, appeared in 7 documentary movies, recorded 50 podcasts, won the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award, had at least 30 videos at Youtube, recorded 3 audio CDs for Sounds True, (one of them 7 plus hours which was unedited) plus a music CD and a Meditation CD with Cindy Lora-Renard, filmed several DVDs, gotten divorced, moved from Maine to California, and gotten married again; created a TV Series based on his books, wrote the pilot script for the TV Series (along with Eylisa Skye) plus a 5 year Treatment, answered thousands of e-mails, written the Forewords for 7 books, developed the largest A Course in Miracles study group in the world (The DU Discussion Group at Yahoo), had his book published in 22 languages, including on Mainland China, where he’ll be traveling to speak soon, and also began to make more time for writing. Gary's third book, Love Has Forgotten No One, was published by Hay House in October of 2013.
