"A Course In Love" Study Group - Room 129 - Conference Room
Join this book study group that meets every Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. Together, they read and discuss this book, A Course of Love by Mari Perron.
A Course of Love (ACOL) is not about adding to one’s life but about un-doing the ties that bind us to what it calls the "house of illusion." In ACOL we are gently guided to awaken, step by loving step. We find ourselves in the unlimited, eternal field of our own awareness, laughing and crying at the glory of what is.There is a way of knowing that can take you beyond where all your learning has taken you. It is the way of direct experience of Truth. It is the way of the heart.
It may be astonishing to hear that there is a continuation of A Course in Miracles, but it is true. Forty years ago Jesus dictated ACIM to the scribe Helen Schucman. More recently, over three years, he similarly dictated A Course of Love to Mari Perron. Students of ACIM will recognize the Voice. Students of truth, whatever their background, will find that ACOL resonates with the heart.
In A Course of Love Jesus says: "This time we take a direct approach, an approach that seems at first to leave behind abstract learning and the complex mechanisms of the mind that so betray you. We take a step away from intellect, the pride of the ego, and approach this final learning through the realm of the heart. This is why, to end confusion, we call this course A Course of Love." (Prelude.44)
ACIM and ACOL are complementary. The same Voice, more accessible. The same thought system, expanded.

A Course in Miracles Study Group - Friendship Hall
Cost: Love Offering
Join together with fellow students of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) as we share and discuss the timeless truths contained in this miraculous book. We start by listening to a meditative song to calm our minds followed by an opening prayer. We share recent successes in applying the truths we are learning and then read and discuss the text of ACIM. We read a few paragraphs and then discuss what we have read. Lather, rinse, repeat! Even long-time students of the Course get more out of it when the collective insight of a dozen fellow souls sheds new light on the simple truths that we have simply forgotten amidst our busy lives and complex world.
We'll be using the 2nd Edition or later of A Course in Miracles published by The Foundation for Inner Peace. A Course in Miracles: Combined Volume If you have any questions, call or email Neil Feiereisel at 512-918-9273 CourseInMiracles@feiereisel.com
