A Course in Miracles

A Course in Miracles is a modern-day program for healing the Mind, removing all judgment, learning to trust the Higher Self/Holy Spirit/Intuition, and coming to consistent Peace of Mind.”
–David Hoffmeister

The Course was initially scribed and typed up during the years of 1965–1972 by two professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University: Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford. With the aid of Ken Wapnick, Robert Skutch, Judith Skutch Whitson, and philanthropist Reed Erickson, “the Course” was published on June 26, 1976 (by the Foundation for Inner Peace) and has gone on to sell over 3 million copies in 25+ languages.

ACIM is a self-study program with a unique approach, designed to bring a consistent state of happiness and peace to the student through the application of its principles. These principles can seem radical and “not of this world.” However, this uncompromising approach is very effective for those looking to heal abandonment, victimhood, and any other seeming lifelong issues.

Following the intentional and careful structure laid out in A Course in Miracles leads inevitably to an experience beyond words. As the Course states, “A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary. It is this experience toward which the course is directed.” C-in.2:5-6 The simplicity of this statement becomes evident through the study of the Course.

The practice of A Course in Miracles can be like climbing a ladder. Each rung represents a new realm of understanding where beautiful pearls of wisdom have more depth the higher one climbs. Another simple, yet profound theme, from the introduction of ACIM:

“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
.” In-2

A Course in Miracles is comprised of three books: the Text, the Workbook for Students, and the Manual for Teachers. It also includes a glossary-style “Clarification of Terms” and two pamphlets (supplements).


A Course of Love

A Course of Love is a living course that empowers us to recognize, through our felt experience, the truth of who we are as human and divine beings—a truth much more magnificent than we could previously imagine.


Reveals a way of direct knowing of truth. It takes us beyond learning as Jesus nurtures our inner unity by inviting “wholeheartedness,” the union of mind and heart.

Brings to light the essential oneness of all, experienced through holy relationship with everything

Fosters radical forgiveness, and goes beyond forgiveness to “active acceptance.”

Readies us to be “the second coming of Christ” and to create “a new world.”

Was received by Mari Perron over three years (1998-2001) in the same manner and from the same Source as A Course in Miracles

Renews the revelation begun in A Course in Miracles. The relationship between the two courses is described this way: “A Course in Miracles attempted to dislodge the ego-mind that has provided you with an identity that you but think you are. A Course of Love then followed in order to reveal to you who you truly are.” (T2:4.3)

Stands on its own without need for readers to be familiar with A Course in Miracles.

Gently guides the reader from the experience of separation to the experience of union, which is also to experience the power of God and the force of love.
