“Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the world.” ~A Course in Miracles
You are about to embark on an exciting journey where you will learn and practice how to live A Course in Miracles (ACIM). Our team at La Casa de Milagros in Chapala, Mexico is now offering an Internship Program for those who have tech skills and want to use them for the Holy Spirit’s purpose of healing, forgiveness, and Awakening!
NOTE: Our internship program is available both for in-person interns as well as those who want to be part of the team remotely.
The Holy Spirit’s Use of Technology
Currently, we are looking for those with an interest and passion for developing AI (artificial intelligence) technology in ways that could benefit the Whole. Those who are accepted into our Internship Program will be part of our AI Team in collaboration with others already on the team who are devoted to the teachings of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) as taught by David Hoffmeister. ✨ 👩💻✨
Our Internship Program is for those who are willing and ready to immerse very deeply in a specialized curriculum of mind-training and forgiveness. It is for those who truly want to apply ACIM on a deeper level and apply it through helpful service; specifically by being in service to David’s internet ministry and online programs. Those who are accepted will be exploring and developing new ways to extend our teachings using AI technology, as well as how AI can help save time in general.
Please watch the three videos below in order in which David talks about the Holy Spirit’s use of AI and how it will help undo the ego by bringing us into an experience of singularity and simultaneity! 😍
What is an intern?
An intern is one that feels called to go inward to join with other like minded brothers. Hence, it is fitting that the word “intern” can also be pronounced “in turn”, for it is this turning inward for the Holy Spirit’s Vision and guidance that is our true vocation!
An intern who comes to live with us in person must come with an attitude of giving; with a willingness to learn, to listen, and to follow the Spirit through their brothers in order to undo the ego’s attachment to autonomy. This singular goal is held out in front as the guiding light for all that we do. Our mind set is always “I am here only to be truly helpful.” Through learning to give as God gives we will join in a collaborative, joyful, loving experience and learn through happy lessons.
“If you would be a happy learner, you must give everything you have learned to the Holy Spirit, to be unlearned for you. And then begin to learn the joyous lessons that come quickly on the firm foundation that truth is true.” (ACIM, T-14.II.6)

*Please understand that opportunities to join our Internship Program are limited due to the number of applications we receive. We review our applicants periodically, and reach out only as positions become available.
What will my day look like?
If accepted for an in-person Internship Program with us, you’ll be stepping into a mind-training program in which there is a helpful structure given for each day. (NOTE: Those who will be working with us remotely will not be given as much structure obviously, but will be asked to commit to working on the project a certain amount of time each week.)
For those living with us in person, everyone is generally asked to be up by 6:30 a.m. for silent prayer and meditation. This is a chance to do your ACIM workbook lesson/meditate in the beautiful grounds of La Casa, to have breakfast if desired, and to spend time with the Holy Spirit. This may be done individually or with the group, but we generally have a guideline of remaining in devotional silence for the first part of our morning.
Then, generally at 7:30, you will meet with the others on the property to receive updates about the day and how it will be spent. Your team leader will guide the meeting and make sure everyone is clear about the tasks and projects that are prioritized for the day.
After the morning meeting, everyone will move into their functions for the day. This time is for learning to be “Done Through” by the Spirit in the context of specific tech projects and collaborations with the team. In addition to tech/AI projects, you will also be assigned house-keeping tasks such as food preparation, cleaning, grounds maintenance, and whatever else may be helpful in service to the entire community (generally there are between 10 and 15 people living on the property at any given time).
We also generally come together as a team for lunch. This is a time for us to be together, pray, express any emotions or miracles we experienced. Other times, it may be a silent lunch, or we may simply listen to some music or audios with teachings from David.
The rest of the afternoon will generally be for continuing with computer projects and any other tasks that support the community. Evenings may include spontaneous joinings with a team leader and other interns, coming together to watch a movie and/or relaxing with meditative music.
Note that the above is just a rough schedule that may change day-to-day, depending on what feels truly helpful to the Internship Program overseer(s). In general, our days are quite spontaneous so the ability to be flexible and supportive will be important.
“Our function is to work together, because apart from each other we cannot function at all.” (ACIM, T-8.VI.8:4)
What are the sleeping arrangements?
You will generally be sleeping in either a men’s or women’s dormitory. These can be very healing times in sharing a room with others. You will be expected to keep your personal bed space clean and tidy, and to collaborate with your companions to clean the room on a regular basis.
How long does the Internship Program last?
We require new interns to make a commitment for 1–3-months, depending on when they come. The exact dates of your program will be discussed on a call once you’ve applied.
At any point during your Internship Program, if you decide you’d like to stay longer than your original commitment, please share this with the Internship Program Overseer. He or she will then join with you to pray about this possibility.
What is the cost?
The Internship Program is $1,500 per month for those who come in person.* This includes:
- Mind training and prayer support through group sessions
- Food and accommodation
- Free access to:
- Online events with David Hoffmeister and the Living Miracles Community
- Spontaneous gatherings and sessions
*We occasionally offer scholarship programs for those who have high tech skills. To determine eligibility, you will need to provide two recent bank statements. There is a space for this in our application that you’ll fill out below.
If you have further questions, you can check our FAQ page. There is also a space in the application where you can write down any additional questions you may have.
