The “Workbook for Students” consists of lessons, an exercise for each day of the year. This one-year training program begins the process of changing the student’s mind and perception, though it is not intended to bring one’s learning to completion. As stated in the Preface to the Course, “At the end, the reader is left in the hands of his or her own Internal Teacher, Who will direct all subsequent learning as He sees fit.
The “Manual for Teachers” is written in question-and-answer form and provides answers to some of the more likely questions a student might ask. It also includes clarification of a number of terms the Course uses, explaining them within the theoretical framework of the Text and for their practical application through the Workbook.

It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time.
The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

Lists with This Book. Sep 19, Regina rated it it was amazing. I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles for 16 years. It teaches only love. I’m only just beginning, I’ve only scratched the surface. It’s a mediation, it’s a prayer, it’s a song of joy and peace. It comforts, inspires, blesses and motivates. It encourages reflection of belief and perception.
One of the few books I read and refer to again and again. Feb 09, Suze rated it really liked it Shelves: This course was a challenge for the part of me that wants to analyze and understand, and I realize ACIM is a process.
It is a spiral cycle that builds on itself, rather than linear. It leads us to change our mind and way of thinking, not to change the world. I balked at the archaic and paternalistic language, but it was worth the effort.
Jan 25, Suzanne Singman rated it did not like it. While the ideas in the book are consistent with what I believe to be true. I had an incredibly hard time getting past the male pronoun. There are only men, sons, brothers courde fathers. What kind of world is this?

I have probably began reading this miraces the fall ofcertainly by the spring ofand I just finished the first main helrn today 23Jan During this same time period, my wife read the entire thing AND completely went through the Workbook for Students, and has started going through it again!
I still have the Workbook for Students and the Manual for Teachers to go. What do I think? Well, I guess everyone needs something to believe in. Although I do not particula One page at a time. Although I do not particularly feel that need. Nevertheless, I mmiracles no harm here. Practicing these principles, as in the major tenets of all the main religions, would only benefit mankind–which needs plenty of help–and should also improve the individual.
As in the movies, once you offer up your willing suspension hflen disbelief, the rest is acceptable. I personally, however, have a difficult time with both belief and disbelief. Its good if miracls are seeking a way to live. Its OK in that its not an easy read. Some think it’s written this way to slow you down and make you think along the way. I found it cumbersome, causing me to re-read many many passages just to understand the point.
I guess I’ll give it 4 stars because I think it deserves to be acknowledged. I had a mere 29 pages left when I moved to Panama, leaving this book to be packed and shipped with everything later.
Here it sat on my bedside mjracles for well over a year before I picked it up again. I have hundreds of Post-It flags marking passages so I will have to return again to this tome to review those notes.
Sep 17, Rick Lenz rated it it was amazing. Of several books that changed my life, casting into long-ago history my experience with totalitarian religion, “A Course in Miracles” is the most important part of my spiritual re-education. It’s the perfect place to go to look for relief from the insanity of the world we live heldn, to discover a gentle approach to uncovering the love, peace, and joy life should be.

Aug 10, Wendy rated schucmann it was amazing Shelves: I have not completed the course yet, but I have been working on it for several months now. Already it has radically changed my perceptions. It proposes a way of saving ourselves and all those around us from the heaviness of our egos.
It miraclrs how to raise yourself out of ego perceptions, which is huge because as much as we might want to love our neighbor, we don’t exactly know how to do it.
This course teaches you a practical way to do that.
