It is a great starting point for a newbie like me to ACIM; and great to receive guidance as to how to go about the course itself and where to focus my energies. A great, and I'd say pretty complete, info session on how to take off with confidence with the study of ACIM."~ Jonathan “Thank you so much for yesterday’s information session. It has intrigued me enough to start reading the book (I have to find it first). Oddly enough I bought it a few years ago and never read it. I guess I wasn’t ready. Now I seem to be ready, you were put on my path to ignite the beginning. I will start by reading it alone for a month or two, and in the spring I will join one of your discussion groups.” ~ Anita Description: This information session will introduce you to ACIM, orient you to ACIM materials, and prepare you for your own personal study and journey with ACIM.
