This is a concentrated “short” course to acquaint you with the principles of “A Course In Miracles” (ACIM). It will enable you to get started and, most important, it will help you as you walk along this important spiritual path.
ACIM may be the most influential spiritual course in North America today. Hollywood has certainly fallen in love with ACIM; which is why its lessons are found in many movies and TV shows. Consequently, the ACIM "jargon" is now part of our English language. In addition, well over 1,000 books have been published based on ACIM. Many of those books have become best sellers, altogether, influencing the spiritual development of many millions of people throughout the world.
But ACIM is a difficult study. This short course will provide you with the basic fundamentals that will enable you to move forward. In addition, we will borrow from Advaita, Buddhism, "Seth", "Emmanuel" and other spiritual paths to illustrate and simplify the concepts.
ACIM is not just meant to be read. It is meant to be practiced. You will be shown the ACIM meditation techniques and you will practice at every session.
You will be provided with extensive notes and, most important, you will be guided along by someone who has done this all before. Specifically, we are offering this ACIM course for the 21st time over a 20 year period.
6 Thursdays; Feb. 23 - March 30, 2017

Sorry; no drop-in. You must register for all 6 evenings. Continuity is important because each evening will build on the foundation developed during previous evenings.
You can register at any Vancouver community center or on line at: https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search?ActivityCenterID=43&IsSearch=true
Prerequisites: You should purchase a copy of "A Course in Miracles" published by the "Foundation for Inner Peace". Begin slowly. It doesn't matter where. Many begin with the Workbook exercises. Look at the 1st few exercises and "feel them". What did it say? What did it mean? In addition, we recommend that you purchase a copy of "Emmanuel's Book" - A manual for living comfortably in the cosmos (Emmanuel's Book 1) by Pat Rodegast. Emmanuel's Book covers the same material as ACIM but in a more poetic fashion. Be aware, though, that Emmanuel's Book is written Spirit to Spirit. Read a section. Read it again. Feel it. It will change you.
