EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
NOTE: The third Sunday series of events are NOT in a typical study groups format, they are networking opportunities to connect in person with teachers and students of A Course In Miracles with other spiritual aspirants and with people of diverse backgrounds in the Washington D.C. area community. The 3rd Sunday events are part of a innovative approach to studying/practicing the principles of ACIM. Our program includes monthly community networking events to personally meet A Course In Miracles ("acim") teachers/students and others to share and to get to know each other better. Then we do daily online followup in Chatzy or through customized coaching arrangements.
We generally do not use the acim book during these face-to-face events. Attendees who sit at the spiritual networking table often discuss acim and other spiritual ideas and how they are applying them in their lives, see discussion message board. http://www.meetup.com/acim-spiritual/messag...
Once you meet the participants in person, you'll be able to connect the name and the face when you go online in our Chatzy rooms. This is an opportunity to perceive everybody as friends and allies and to practice forgiveness if anything or anyone does not meet your expectations, as you know, you and only you are responsible for your own expectations. We hope you will come with an intention to enjoy a happy experience, no matter what, accept "what is" and notice your "self-talk" "narrative" about "what is." We can assure you it will probably NOT be what you expect. Specifically currently our ACIM participants do NOT want to continue the traditional face-to-face study groups unless a volunteer team wishes to step up to make all the arrangements. The current DC program is preferred by active ACIM members in this group.
This could be an opportunity to practice principles of A Course In Miracles which include non-judgment, no condemnation, choosing to be happy no matter what, perceiving others as friends and allies who reflect the energy of Love and joy.
Some students of A Course In Miracles are also students of Dr. David R. Hawkins as well as many other spiritual books including Conversations with God. Come and share your spiritual insights with others in the community. You'll meet people from diverse backgrounds which is great for people who like people who are not only spiritual but also successful professionals, business owners, community leaders and nonprofit managers. (Please do NOT come if you are just looking for a traditional study group or have the expectation that we will be reading paragraphs in ACIM at the event because we do not do that at this event.)
WHO: THE THIRD SUNDAY COMMUNITY EVENTS ARE ORGANIZED BY ACIM STUDENTS and the Allies Team of volunteers and community builders FOR PEOPLE OF ALL BACKGROUND INTERESTED IN SPIRITUAL, ECONOMIC AND PERSONAL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.
WHEN: 12:30PM TO 2:30P ON THE THIRD SUNDAYS OF EACH MONTH.
WHAT YOU ORDER. (Please register and donate to help with expenses of organizing this event, there may be a happy surprise for those who do make a donation toward expenses.)

EACH ATTENDEE WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE POSITIVE ENERGY BY:
