    What Does the Course Say about Boundaries?

    What Does the Course Say about Boundaries?

    We all know healthy boundaries are important. Long before boundaries were celebrated as an essential part of self-care, Robert Frost wrote, “Good fences make good neighbors.” And yet, as Course students, the topic of boundaries brings up many significant questions: How do we reconcile boundaries with the spiritual teaching that we ultimately have no boundaries, that the lines between us are a fiction of the mind? When does an emphasis on setting boundaries get in the way of the supreme value of love and forgiveness?
    How would the Course advise us to enact a boundary or even to end a relationship?
    In this podcast, Circle founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington share what the Course has to teach us on this very important topic.

    The Course's Christmas Story

    The Course's Christmas Story

    We often think of Christmas as the celebration of Jesus' birth in the world. The Course has its own take, however, one that celebrates a holy birth within all of us. In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, Circle of Atonement founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington share an encapsulation of the Course's Christmas teachings and how we can all apply them to our lives.

    Our Vision for the Circle and for A Course in Miracles

    Our Vision for the Circle and for A Course in Miracles

    When it comes to spirituality, so much of the focus is on how we ourselves can benefit. Does this practice bring us peace, are we feeling healthier and more motivated, etc.
    As students of A Course in Miracles, we all have personal goals we hope to achieve through this path, but have we ever stopped to consider what the Course’s goals may be? Have we ever wondered whether the Course itself has a purpose to achieve in the world and how we can help it get there?
    At the Circle of Atonement, we hold a vision for the Course that is based on guidance Helen Schucman received just a few months before the book was originally published. In this video, Circle founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington share this guidance as well as the Circle’s plans for 2022. If you’d like to learn more about our vision for the Circle and the Course, we invite you to visit www.circleofa.org/vision.

    Should We Seek to Change the World? A Conversation with Marianne Williamson

    Should We Seek to Change the World? A Conversation with Marianne Williamson

    A Course in Miracles famously says “Seek not to change the world” and even declares “There is no world!” What, then, do we do as Course students about trying to save and heal the world? This question came vividly to the fore when bestselling author and Course teacher Marianne Williamson ran for President of the United States in 2019 and continues to strike a chord to this day.
    Within the Course community, some students see involvement in the world as an abandonment of Course principles while others feel it is an extension of them. But what does the Course itself teach? In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, Circle of Atonement founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington discuss this topic with Marianne herself.

    The Lost Section on Looking at Our Fear

    The Lost Section on Looking at Our Fear

    A Course in Miracles is a sacred text. Any edits or changes of any kind are not done so lightly. And so, the addition of the lost section, The Journey into Fear, is a significant thing and it's one we are excited to share with you.
    In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, join Circle founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington for a lively discussion on not only this new section of the Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles (CE) but also on a discovery Robert has recently made. Within the journals Course co-scribe Bill Thetford kept in 1966, there are connections with this new material.
    NOTE: Exploring A Course in Miracles podcasts are recorded live (typically every other Monday at 11 am Eastern) and then released on YouTube and various podcast outlets including iTunes and Spotify. Attending the live recording is free and all are invited. To receive the access link, please visit circleofa.org/events.

Great Teachers Light a Fire Under You!

So many so-so, meh, or uninspired podcasts about this book that has the power to transform lives, if read and practiced seriously. Emily and Robert bring just the right tone to this discussion, which makes you want to dig in and start reading and practicing the course. Great job, you two - please keep it up! God bless you for your service to the ACIM community, and to humanity as well. Peace and Love, and of Course, forgiveness always.

Disagree

Not feeling led to get a vaccine does not equal ‘everyone be damned’! The vaccine has no long term studies and the vaccinated can still get and spread Covid. Natural immunity is profoundly effective, as well. Maybe it’s fine both ways. That’s what feels most loving. The voice for God speaking to each soul should be respected, I would think. This podcast doesn’t give room for that and sounds slightly judgmental.

I am new to ACIM and new to this podcast. I am so moved by this beautiful discussion with Freedom. I feel Idabelle’s love and light and it’s beauty is felt deeply in my heart. Thank you!
