Welcome to the website for the School for A Course in Miracles, a school for helping interested students understand and apply the teachings of A Course in Miracles. Like any school we offer an opportunity to learn something that is considered to be of value. There the similarities end. Unlike most educational opportunities our curriculum does not seek to improve who you think you are or the world you seem to be living in.
Changing the way in which you see is the aim of A Course in Miracles. Most of humanity does not yet believe there is another way to see the world. Only by transforming the one looking is that change possible.
A student must first decide if he or she wants to become a learner in this way—a way that offers no particular gains to the personal self. Peace of mind is an effect of the transcendence of the personal. It benefits all because “mind” is singular. In this way we can experience that there is no separation.
If you feel called to make this kind of change you won’t be able to stop your Self from following that call although the “you” who thinks you are living in this world and likes it (sometimes) may resist. No teacher can give you this desire; you have it or you don’t. It often arises after you become disillusioned with your own ability to find lasting happiness.
“The invitation”, that calling to venture beyond the personal, goes on all the time. You choose when you are ready to hear it. “Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what to take at a given time.”
The curriculum is the miracle. “It is a required course”. The miracle happens through forgiveness, which brings “awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance.”
The Course undoes the blocks. “It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to…….” The Lessons, all three-hundred and sixty five, do the work in a realm that you may not be aware of, a non-place the Course calls the mind. You learn how not to interfere with , or block your awareness of your true self.
In 2007, a small enthusiastic group of teachers/learners in the way of the Course joined together to start a School for serious students who wanted to accelerate their learning. As a group, we had collectively logged well over 100 years of devotion to its teachings and the practice of forgiveness. We then called it the School of Reason.
As the Director of the School, I would like to share a word about the faculty. Each of the teachers has pursued their calling vigilantly, sometimes for more than thirty years. They have direct experience of the miracle that the required course promises so they can’t be fooled by the substitutes the personal self likes to claim. Each of them engaged in a two year process of unlearning so that they could be taught to see differently. They know what it takes to sincerely practice forgiveness and to receive the benefits of peace. They know how to help you make the best use of time.
If you are undecided about your spiritual goal and whether the SFACIM might help you attain it, you may find it valuable to attend an event sponsored by the School, or drop in to one of our teacher’s classes. You will find these events and classes posted on our website. You may also find a conversation with any one of the faculty helpful in clarifying your interest in attending.
We are here only to be truly helpful.
Sincerely and with love,
Director, School for A Course in Miracles
