Traveling Minstrel

Sharing the teachings of "A Course in Miracles" through Music and Story


My name is Erik Archbold, and I'm originally from northern California. For many years, I've been a practitioner of A Course in Miracles, which is a profound spiritual path that's all about exposing the ego's tricks, practicing true forgiveness, and following the guidance of the Holy Spirit in order to remember God's Love. In 2009, I was inspired by my friend and teacher David Hoffmeister to leave behind my career (which happened to be in hypnotherapy) and become a "traveling minstrel"; to go where Spirit guides me and share my experiences through music and stories. Since then, my life has felt like a continually mind-opening adventure for which I am so grateful! With no home, no job nor career and very few possessions, I simply travel where I feel Called, and place all trust in Spirit to provide the means. Through this practice of inner trust, following my heart, and true forgiveness, my experience has become one of increasing closeness with God, and with everyone I meet. Fear is dissolving, and only Love remains.

Recently, I've been guided to go on an "Inner Listening" tour with my friend Tamra, offering gatherings for Awakening wherever invited. To learn more, click here or on the banner below.

Thank you for visiting me here! We are all in the same boat, awakening from this dream together, and no one is "higher" or "lower" than another. I look forward to meeting you along the "journey that never was"!

With love,

Over the years, many people have shared with me that it feels so helpful to express their fears, grievances, and other private thoughts to me... and to not be judged. It has been my greatest joy to hold the space for these private thoughts to be expressed, to release any judgments I may have about them, and then feel the healing occur in both of our minds. And that is what I wish to offer to everyone!

If you're struggling with private thoughts about anything at all, I encourage you to share them with me in order to be free of them! Once they are exposed to another human who can hand them to the Holy Spirit for you, you'll discover that they cease to hold as much weight as they did before. Of course, the ego will go crazy and put all sorts of fear thoughts in your mind, but if you look calmly at this fear with me, it will go at last.
