A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. It teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are "many thousands." Though it uses some of the terms and symbols of traditional Christianity, this implies no endorsement of any existing church or sect. A Course in Miracles is meant as a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.
