Our weekly A Course in Miracles class has been transformed into a weekly LivingMysticism Class. To use the book we suggist focusing on regular practice of the workbook lessons, and on understanding the experiences, both practical and mystical, that you encounter in this process.  The primary aim of 'The Course is to get to know Self in all its aspects, both in relation to the Divine and in relation to the world.  The Divine Source is calling on each one of you in a very personal way to choose to look at the world differently, setting you free from your past cultural, spiritual and scientific conditioning.


The Course seeks to break down your world views and your conditioned ways of thinking, and to open up in its place a new paradigm of life and human function, as well as a greater awareness of the Divine Source within.  Like all true spiritual disciplines it combines outer teachings with inner knowing or gnosis.  It teaches you to seek for your source of support within, through the discipline of regular practice of the lessons, through application of new ways of perceiving,   through inner focus and meditation.  It shows you how to find healing instead of suffering in your dealings with the world and the people in it.  It shows you how to replace fear and anger with understanding and love.  It teaches you to find miracles.

The primary aim of “A Course in Miracles”, as stated in the introduction, is to “remove the blocks to love’s presence”. This statement implies that love is always present in all things but you have chosen to separate from it. The Miracle is the discovery that love really is an inherent part of all relationships and all events in your life and the consequent experience of wholeness that comes with this discovery.  Thus the Course is not about changing the world you live in as much as changing your perception of that world. Strange and contradictory as that may seem, this new perception can itself totally change the world you experience. 

            A Course in Miracles is a 3 volume book of spiritual teaching and practice.

Book I “Text” outlines the theology and teaching upon which the course is based. It addresses the limited and conditioned thought patterns of our culture and its religions. It challenges the mind to question and look beyond many, if not all, of the assumptions of physical reality. It seeks to focus the human consciousness upon its divine inheritance.

Book II “Workbook for Studentsprovides a series of 365 lessons. Each lesson provides an experience in confronting the feelings and emotional patterns within your psyche which block your connection to your divine source and prevent you from seeing yourselves and the world differently. Daily practice of the lessons helps you to perceive the ever present and meaningful connection between your physical experience and your spiritual growth. It is not necessary to do a new lesson every day. It is important to allow sufficient time to connect with each lesson, experience its teaching and, in consequence, its “miracle”.

Book III “Manual for Teachers” is best described in its introduction. “The Course…. emphasizes that to teach is to learn, so that teacher and learner are the same.  It … emphasizes that teaching is a constant process; it goes on every moment of the day, and continues into sleeping thoughts as well.  To teach is to demonstrate…. From your demonstration others learn and so do you.”  Every moment of everyday you are teaching yourselves and those whom you interact with. The question is, do you live and teach spirituality and wholeness or do you live and teach anxiety and separation? Go to Top.
