This is the edition of A Course in Miracles that its two scribes, Drs. Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, authorized for publication by the Foundation for Inner Peace in 1975. It is now available in translation in 27 languages and is widely used by students in thousands of Course study groups around the world.
A Course in Miracles is a unique spiritual self-study program—a course in mind-training—designed to undo the illusion that you are separate in any way from God or your fellow humans. At the level of the mind we are all united as one. When we learn to live this truth consistently, fear, anger and guilt give way to a profound sense of inner peace. The Course systematically leads you to experience God’s Love in all your relationships through the practice of forgiveness (releasing the past), the willingness to receive and follow higher guidance, and the cultivation of miracle-mindedness. Happiness, peace, joy, and love are the natural outcomes of the Course’s teaching.
A Course in Miracles consists of three separate volumes: Text, Workbook for Students and Manual for Teachers. The Text presents the theory of the Course, laying out its central ideas in a holistic, symphonic-like progression. The Workbook for Students provides 365 lessons, one for each day of the year. It begins the process of changing the student’s mind and perception. The Manual for Teachers is written in question-and-answer form to address many of the most important and practical Course topics. Also included in this Combined edition only are two valuable Supplements to the Course: Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice and the beautiful and inspiring Song of Prayer.
