A Course In Miracles - Foundation for Inner Peace

I have noticed some groups in the Villages are taking this course and am curious as to what it is?

The link you posted to the article explains what it is and how it came to be offered- what is it that you are really wanting to know... if it is teaching that will ring true to your inner self? Teaching that will resonate to your core beliefs?
That is for you to discern.

If nothing else, it will broaden your perspective. I explored it many years ago.

Thanks for the information. I found this which explained it somewhat. I believe I will wait until I have quite a bit more life experiences. http://acimexplained.com/a-summary-o...e-in-miracles/

There is a discussion group for A Course In Miracles which meets weekly at Coconut Cove on Thursdays at 1:00

The group is abbreviated in the Rec. News as "ACIM"

Anyone can visit at any meeting.

Thanks for that information. It looks like your study into ACIM lasts at least 365 days??

When I visited, I think they rotated leaders and the sections for group reading and discussion were whatever the leader had chosen.

It was not sequential.

If you chose to do the workbook, however, it would be best to do it sequentially with time for reflection.

You can get the hardcover bound (3 books together) for as low as $5.46 on Amazon

Tal, try sending a PM to Hyacinth Bucket.
She knows all about ACIM.
She lives close to you.
I'm sure she'd take you to a meeting if you are interested.

I think your confusion stems from calling it "a course". I've never done ACIM, but in general try to live my life on a higher plane.

For me, it's not like Freshman English, more of a spiritual journey. It can't really be measured in time, it's an evolution that takes place over the course of a lifetime.

I'm so happy you brought up this topic, it made me realize how off course I have gotten in my life. It made me realize again how I got to where I am. I always believed in Simple Abundance, gratitude journals and the power of forgiveness.

When you're ready for it, you'll know it.
