The reading assignment for this class is ACIM text book, Chapter 13, Section 6 "Finding the Present". (http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/A_Course_in_Miracles/Text/Chapter_13)
Open Level Class Taught in English by Yasuko Kasaki
Know your life purpose and the meaning of your current situation clearly. Communicate with your Inner Teacher. Heal yourself and others.
This is an ongoing class on A Course in Miracles (ACIM). This 90-minute class strongly focuses on mind training designed to help you to experience the lessons and wisdom of ACIM. Each class contains some lecture from the ACIM Textbook and/or Urtext, some discussion and Q&A, and typically 20 – 30 minutes of meditation and creative visualization practice in order to experience mind change.
Our primary goal of this class is that all of the students can listen to the guidance of Holy Spirit and can live his/her life with certainty and peace. Slowly, you will re-train your eyes to see the world around you without judgment. You will learn to communicate with your holy spirit.
From May 9, 2011 we again began working our way through the ACIM Textbook from chapter one and progress at an easy pace with the perfect mind-training curriculum of ACIM. Each class, we will announce the reading for the following week. It is OK to attend without having done the reading, but we highly encourage you to do the reading (and the workbook lessons on your own) if you can! This course is meant to be experienced rather than simply talked about. You can find the text online here (http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/A_Course_in_Miracles), among other places.
If you are a total beginner, this class would be appropriate for you. While the class does progress through the book, it is OK to join at any time. If you have been studying the Course for many years, this class would be even better.
