Upcoming Events

Hello Everyone,

Thank you Everyone for your efforts to attend my Melbourne Florida Gary Renard 2020 event.   I am quite grateful to have talked with many of you and made some marvelous friends through the process!

Holy Spirit has guided me to cancel Gary’s 2020 Melbourne Florida event.  As a result I will be issuing refund checks to those who paid via a check and will be issuing refunds through PayPal for those who paid via PayPal less the fees that PayPal charged my business to transfer your money to it.  I do not know if PayPal charges you any fees to receive a refund or not.  

For those who paid with checks, please email me at glendacarlin1@gmail.com and give me your mailing address where I am to mail your refund check.

As you all know even though this is an illusion, we still do not put the body in harm’s way. This means we practice true forgiveness and the guidance of Holy Spirit as we follow our local, state and federal requirements about social distancing, isolation, etc. 

Love and Big Hugs to Everyone! Glenda 


Hello to all you wonderful A Course in Miracles Students and Renard Book Readers,

Monday, March 16th was an eventful day.  At 4:02 pm today, I received an email from Rev. Val at the Unity of Melbourne Church stating that they were closing the Church for 8 weeks due to the virus.  I sent an email to Gary who replied below stating he will be giving us a MAKEUP DATE in late spring or summer.  As soon as I know this date, I will send a follow up email out. Rev. Val assured me that we can still meet at the Church Sanctuary whenever we know our new date!

I want to thank each of you for your determination to come see and hear Gary Renard speak the truths of the Course, tell his jokes and share his life experiences in applying true forgiveness.

I will send you a follow up email as soon as I know the new Saturday date!

Love to you all,  Glenda

A Hesitant Announcement

Hi friends. I have to make an announcement I didn’t want to make, but hey, shit happens. The Unity Church in Melbourne, Florida, where we were going to have our workshop on Saturday, has said it is closing down for eight weeks, due to the corona beer virus. So even though I would have given my all to be there, you shouldn’t.  For those of you who are already registered, I hope you will assist our organizer and my dear friend Glenda by applying your tuition to the make-up date, which will probably be in the late spring or summer. As soon as we have the date I’ll make sure everybody knows. I’m going to write this weekend about my observations on all of this. For now, I think the Holy Spirit knows this can be a great opportunity for us, if we cease it.

I love you guys. Gary


Gary Renard
Special Melbourne Workshop
Letting Go of Fear
Through the Principles
Of A Course in Miracles

One Full Day Workshop –  Saturday, March 21, 2020 – POSTPONED DUE TO CHURCH CLOSING – NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED.   10 am to 5pm.  From 5:00 – 6:00 pm will be book signings & photo opportunities with Gary.  Bring your own books or CD’s, etc. to be signed or purchase books at the workshop.   At Unity of Melbourne: 2401 N Harbor City Blvd, Melbourne, FL 32935.

Join Gary  Renard as he takes you through the process of awakening from the dream of separation using the purely non-dualistic thought system of A Course in Miracles. Principles and practices of undoing the ego through true forgiveness will be discussed.

Gain a deeper understanding of how the mind works so you can take control of your thoughts and choose peace and oneness over conflict and separation. Learn how to heal all your relationships by changing your perception and interpretations, moving you further on the path of awakening to your reality as Spirit! This is an event you won’t want to miss.

Gary R. Renard is the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe, Your Immortal Reality, Love Has Forgotten No One and The Life Times When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each OtherHe 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.  His books are now in 22 languages and growing. 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.

FYI other Sponsors of Renard Workshops charge $125 for a one day event.  However I chose to charge only $95 per person (even though I am paying for his air fare from Los Angeles, hotel stay and the renting of the Unity of Melbourne sanctuary).   If any person wants to attend and cannot afford the $95, please call my cell and explain the circumstances and I will reduce the ticket price  accordingly.  I do not want the price of the ticket to deter anyone from hearing Gary speak as one nugget of information could change your entire perception and clarify A Course in Miracles truths!

Gary is scheduled to complete a one-day Saturday workshop March 21, 2020. I have rented the Unity of Melbourne Sanctuary. Unity’s address is 2401 N Harbor City Blvd, Melbourne, FL 32935  (FYI, Harbor City Blvd is also known as U.S. Highway 1).  Cindy is finishing a new book and will not be accompanying Gary.

Each time I see him, I am always comforted to know that he speaks from Jesus’s truth of pure non-dualism and am amazed at the amount of A Course in Miracles truths that he covers while sharing personal experiences and jokes!  HE DOES NOT WATER DOWN THE COURSE and covers steps on practicing true forgiveness during his talk.

Event specifics: The event will be from 10-5.  Gary will talk from 10 until lunch break.  After the lunch there will be a  question and answer period with book signing & photo taking from 5-6.  The workshop fee is $95 – USdollars.   If you want to register to reserve your attendance as the church sanctuary only holds around 100 people, please provide complete name for each person and your phone number and make a $50 deposit either through my business’s PayPal account – Great Ray Experience or mail a $50 check made out to Great Ray Experience and mail to Great Ray Experience.  Email Glenda to receive mailing address.  If you have trouble using the Paypal link, you can enter my email address glendacarlin1@gmail.com to find my account to make payments to.


Prior to March 21, 2020, if you want to pay the entire $95 fee or remaining balance with a credit card, please use my business’s PayPal account.  Or at the day of the event, you can pay the entire $95 fee or remaining balance via check made payable to Great Ray Experience at the church.  EXCITING NEWS, I JUST OBTAINED A PAYPAL CARD READER WHICH MEANS I CAN ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO USE A CREDIT CARD TO PURCHASE BOOKS OR TO PAY THE BALANCE ON THEIR TICKET!

There will be books to purchase at the event or you can bring your own Renard Books or CD’s for him to sign.  Not far from the church is a Subway and Italian Restaurant.  Historic Eau Gallie Arts District with restaurants is within three miles of the church.  Here is a link for Melbourne B&B’s.   Here is a link for local hotels.
