Coming Events

Kirsten’s gatherings are an opportunity to directly experience the Peace of God within, and explore how to live a spiritual life with every moment being honored as the pathway. She invokes awareness of how to listen and follow Inner Guidance more consistently,  and shares clarity on the two thought systems in the mind so that we can realized the power of our thoughts and choose to direct our attention from the ego to truth. 

Kirsten’s gentle presence allows for an exploration of the most relevant topics on the heart as an inroads to self-inquiry and deepening relationship with the Spirit, our Inner Guide. 

Her shorter gatherings are interactive, and are primarily in the form of spiritual discourse (satsang) where questions are welcome. She gives a clear metaphysical framework to clarify the difference between Truth and illusions. Longer gatherings and retreats involve an experiential / workshop component including deepening in direct communication and relationship with the “Still small Voice within”, the Voice for God – through Inner listening, journal writing (inner dialogue involving channeled writing), heart-opening music, meditations, silence, and/or metaphysical films.



“I love to travel around the world, meeting new friends and reconnecting with beloveds.

The invitation from the Heart is what we follow, it shows us the Way… brings us together for profound healing experiences… and deepens our relationship with God – with the truth of Who we are beyond all else. I am so grateful for this Life, and for sharing it with You. 

Some of these events fill up quickly and have limited spaces. If you feel inspired to host, or put your name on a waiting list for a retreat, feel welcome to contact me via email,

Everything works together for the good. “What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose if your good?” (ACIM, W-135) Present trust in Him leads to an experience of peace and joy. And a life lived in Trust and Guidance becomes a meaningful encounter with the truth.

Come join Kirsten Buxton and Frances Xu for a 9-day non-residential retreat this April in developing the trust and deepening the connection with the Spirit. We will go deeper together and explore the inner work of a life lived in present trust and meeting everything with love and forgiveness.

This retreat will involve teaching/Q&A, prayer, meditation, and experiential healing sessions for opening the heart and developing trust in the Spirit’s Guidance.

Dates and Times:
April 5-7   April 12-14   April 19-21
Fridays 2pm – 6.30pm
Saturdays 10.30am – 5.30pm
Sundays 10.30am – 3.30pm



A Course In Miracles Gathering
With Frances Xu and Kirsten Buxton

Join us for a 1 day gathering, followed by a day for one-to-one appointments in Hokkaido with modern-day mystics and ACIM teachers Kirsten Buxton and Frances Xu.

Having devoted their lives to forgiveness and awakening, Kirsten and Frances now experience a life of Divine Providence – of complete trust in Spirit – seeing everything working together for the highest good. They invite an exploration of the inner work of a life lived in present trust, meeting everything with love and forgiveness.

Their gatherings are practical, as they share how the spiritual principles of ACIM are applied in daily life, as a means for undoing the ego, healing the unconscious mind, and realizing our true Identity as Spirit. Questions on the heart are very welcome.






1 Day Gathering

This gathering in New Zealand feels like a Connection, a coming together of new and dear companions on the journey. The themes are Inner Listening and Guidance, and the backdrop for the gathering is a beautiful, tranquil property that is the perfect space for honoring our relationship with the Divine. 

To be Guided by the Spirit is to learn that we are not alone, that, in fact, the Presence and Love of God is with us always, and is available to take care of and guide every aspect of our lives. 

When you have learned how to decide with God, all decisions become as easy and as right as breathing. There is no effort, and you will be led as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path in summer.” (T-14.IV.)
