  • A Course in Miracles Discussion Group @ 8:00 PM EST (CAN/US)

    Would you like to feel peaceful even in difficult circumstances? Would you like to feel more connected to your Source? In this online discussion we delve into how A Course in Miracles can enhance our spiritual journey and teach us peace in the midst of chaos. ABOUT A COURSE IN MIRACLES “It..aims...at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all encompassing can have no opposite. This Course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” (T-In.1:7-8,2:1-4) A Course In Miracles (ACIM) is a unique spiritual self-study program designed to awaken us to the truth of our oneness with God and Love. 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. ACIM also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.” The language of the Course is of traditional Christianity while it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. ACIM is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion. Access course material here: https://acim.org/workbook-lessons-overview/workbook-table-of-contents/ Hosted by AWAKENING SPIRITUALITY, an online community of seekers interested in personal development and spiritual exploration. www.awakeningspirituality.ca.
