What if you can't be hurt?
When we're hurt, we naturally want to let other people know - especially those who we feel are responsible. A Course in Miracles offers a unique understanding of the unconscious psychology behind feeling unfairly treated. It promises that if we can understand what’s really going on inside of us, we can be free of hurt itself. In this episode, Robert and Emily explore this idea and discuss how we can stop showing people a damaged picture of ourselves and show them our healing instead.
BONUS: Teach Only Love: Rising to the Challenge of Our Time with A Course in Miracles
Times like these call us to be better people. They call us to be anchored within so that we can respond with love and helpfulness to the world outside. This may seem like a distant goal, but this is precisely where A Course in Miracles can help. The Course is known for its unique wisdom and its practical exercises, all of which are aimed at helping us meet a stormy world in a new and different way.
What does the Course say about hate?
A Course in Miracles doesn’t shy away from the word “hate” and its cognates, which appear over 200 times in the book. Accordingly, the Course is well equipped to help us heal the hate within us. In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, Robert and Emily offer practical tools for facing and rooting out the hate in our hearts so that we can heal it in our world.
Can We Choose Love in an Insane World?
As we look around at the world today, insanity appears to be everywhere. Will we adjust to a world that makes no sense, feeling that we must fit in? Or will we buck the system and choose to love like God loves? In this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles, Robert and Emily discuss how we can all stand for love in an insane world.
Your Brother's Holiness
Holiness is a hugely important concept in A Course in Miracles, which contains over a thousand references to “holy” and “holiness.” Yet we don’t talk much about holiness, do we? In this episode, Robert and Emily explore the power and significance of seeing our brothers as the Course would have us see them.
The Hidden Belief in Specialness
When it comes to the topic of specialness, the Course is challenging something in us that we have hoped to keep forever hidden and safely undisturbed. That said, the reason we all hide our quest for specialness, even from ourselves, is the very reason we need to give it up: Specialness puts us at war with all our brothers. In this episode, Robert and Emily discuss facing our addiction to being special and how we can let go of this need in recognition of our equal holiness and worth.

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!
Thank you Emily and Robert for this excellent podcast. Every time I think I have made a lot of progress with the Course, something gently reminds me to go back to the basics and really do the work. This podcast has given me the impetus to really really ask for guidance much more frequently and to really really follow it. I also reread Cameo 14. Jesus nails it! Who couldn’t see themselves in these various acts of miscreation! Such good examples of the power of mind-watching and the importance of kindness. What an inspiring podcast!
Wonderful Edition & Teachers
I had been tepidly exploring ACIM for many years. Listening to a number of teachers. It was not until I found The Circle of Atonement and the CE edition did I find a forum to really dive in and embrace the teachings. This podcast is a perfect complement.
