**Please note: MEETING LOCATION HAS CHANGED TO MY HOUSE**
Angie and Vicki are willing to be my backups. So, check the meetup the day of the meeting in case something has changed and/or ask for my cell phone number to ask me the day of where the meeting will be. ~ Lisa
From Sean Brown about A Course In Miracles:
My very first Meetup and my very first spiritual oriented group event was with the [url=http://www.meetup.com/a-course-in-miracles]Las Vegas A Course In Miracles Group.[/url] It set the bar for my future Meetup experiences and became the template from which I built the Awareness Group's meetings. Teresa and Joe are outstanding facilitators and they have opened up their incredible home for the Tuesday meetings. Not only do they know how to run a meeting but they are both extremely well versed in the Course as both of them have been students of the Course for many years. The group has a core group of members who include Niels, Ray, Lisa, Shane & Tai who are also very knowledgeable about the material and have a great way of explaining what the Course means to them. Whether you are a student of the Course yourself or are new to this outstanding spiritual paradigm, I would strongly encourage you to attend this well organized, warm, and friendly Meetup group. [url=http://www.meetup.com/AwarenessGroup/members/8114250/]Sean Brown[/url] [divider] [b]From the description about the meetup group:[/b] ([url=http://www.meetup.com/a-course-in-miracles]found here[/url]) Why meet in a group? We teach to learn. We speak from truth and process what we hear and read, allowing our inner guidance to reveal to us what is Truth. In this way, we help each other to clarify and purify our thoughts. "To teach is to demonstrate. There are only two thought systems, and you demonstrate that you believe one or the other is true all the time. From your demonstration others learn and so do you. The question is not whether you will teach, for in that there is no choice. The purpose of the course might be said to provide you with a means of choosing what you want to teach on the basis of what you want to learn. You cannot give to someone else, but only to yourself, and this you learn through teaching. Teaching is but a call to witnesses to attest to what you believe." (page 1 Manual for Teachers) "A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else's. Once he has done that, his road is established and his direction is sure. A light has entered the darkness. It may be a single light, but that is enough. He has entered an agreement with God even if he does not yet believe in Him." And so it is. If you feel like checking it out, don't worry about "joining". It is a very casual atmosphere only for those who wish to be there at a given moment. We aim to have a good time in the process and love to host social events, too! All paths respected. See you there!
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
