  • A Course in Miracles Discussion Group @ 3:00 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/ ABOUT THE FACILITATOR Johan Koeslag has searched for meaning, direction, sanctuary, himself, a soul journey, peace from the time he first questioned the status quo through traditional church, family life, work and now. That search led him to A Course in Miracles and it has been a focus of his life for many years. His mentors and students have been invaluable fellow travelers. By sharing and teaching the course its application comes to life. Johan’s gentle approach to discussing the principles and essentials of ACIM, as well as its concepts and meaning, empowers fellow seekers to look at things differently. Johan Koeslag has 15 years of experience working with A Course in Miracles. He finds it truly life changing.

  • Awakening Spirituality: Seekers Discussion @ 7 PM

    Online event

    You are invited to explore lots of fun spiritual topics in an evening session of open and casual discussion about all aspects of spirituality. The night will flow wherever people want to go with their perspectives and questions. Please feel free to make suggestions for topics that will be discussed. Bring all your questions. We love questions!! Sessions will be facilitated by Tina Heathers. Spirituality has always been a part of her life. Tina loved growing up in a traditional Christian church until it was time to let go of church and develop her attraction to energy healing and meditation. With increased intuition and emotional sensitivity, she also discovered the great peace that comes with solitude and silence. Studying many different therapies and traveling great distances to attend courses and workshops have been defining parts of her life-long journey. Other topics that fascinate this certified meditation instructor, minister and reiki master include the powers of the mind, spiritual enlightenment, personal freedom, and mental and emotional imprinting. Tina loves to talk about inner peace, spiritual healing, meditation, the metaphysics of personal reality, card readings, A Course in Miracles, Goddess and the Divine feminine. At present, her world revolves around meditation and discovering the deeper and deeper layers of metaphysics and the nature of our personal reality. RULES OF PLAY - Openly share your thoughts and perspective - Accept that others will have different thoughts - Watch for your own internal resistance to ideas that are different than yours - Self reflect on how your mind prefers your own opinion - Practice listening without judgment of right or wrong - Have fun and help to create a supportive and accepting environment DATE/TIME: Every second Tuesday @ 7:00 PM EST (CAN/US) ZOOM ONLINE: From the comfort of your own space, click the link under "Online event" to the right (after you've RSVPed) to join the video conference on your phone, tablet or PC.
