Please See Comments/Conversation Posted Below this partial description where with ample time prior to each week's gathering, David will post the Topic/Focus
After over 30 years on the spiritual path, David still finds A Course In Miracles as a way to reach the deepest parts of your spiritual being and bring them into every day consciousness.
There is no experience level needed to take this course. Brand new people on the path will find it beneficial as well as those who have had a lifetime of spiritual practice.
You may find more about it on the official website at http://acim.org/ or write to David at dspetner [@] beachnet [.] com ([masked])
The group meets weekly on Wednesday evening. Please note that although the word "Course" is in the title, you do not have to sign up for a series. Each meeting is an entity unto its own, so please come join us at any time. While signing up and making the commitment to attend regularly is of compounding benefit that you will experience as you do so. At the very same time, drop-ins are absolutely welcome.
A Course in Miracles is based on the book of the same name, although it's not necessary to get it to attend this course. You can find the book at the library or order it from the website or any bookstore.

"The world you see is not the real world. The real world is a joyous place inside you, a way to cope with the outside world and a way to discover God in everything. You are here for a purpose and you will discover that purpose in this course. It creates a new way of thinking and experiencing the world."

Housekeeping Notes from Host Location, The GATEWAY:
* Thank you for honoring No Food or Eating or Drinks other than water in containers with lids inside the offices or workshop space of The GATEWAY.
* Cell phones silenced as you enter The GATEWAY Quiet Zones please. Thank you.
* The GATEWAY Portal practices and asks you, its attendees to join us in upholding a no perfume policy as possible. We also practice and ask all to adhere to a no candle and no incense burning policy for those sensitive to synthetic smells as well as for lessening our harmful carbon footprint impact on the environment. Please note that practitioners are permitted to burn a naturally sun dried herb called sage to clean the space energetically. & lastly where candles are part of a sacred ritual, safe, non-scented candles are permitted to be burned upon expressed consent by GATEWAY's operating director. If you have any further questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
* Also, in as much as we LOVE animals outside humans, no animals other than humans are permitted inside The GATEWAY. Blessedly this does not eliminate our Practitioners here at GATEWAY from being able to do work on them, as often they work remotely and/or with photos or props. We thank the universe for Quantum on that. Where necessary, the Practitioner may set up chairs and a portable divider to makeshift a little private area outside near our patio to do hands on work with animals. Thank you so much for your understanding and co-operation.
