The great classic work, A Course in Miracles, is devoted to teachings about who we are, our relationships to God and with each other, and the actually mental nature of our bodies and the world. There are three constituent parts to the Course: The Text, a Workbook for Students, and the Manual for Teachers. The Text lays out the theoretical foundation for the metaphysical system of the Course. The Workbook contains a series of 365 Lessons to be practiced daily for the purpose of retraining the mind and healing our perception. Finally, the Manual contains information for and about advanced teachers of God. A Course in Miracles is also about miracles, which students understand to be, in part, a shift in perception to healed vision. But miracles are more than a shift in perception, because the shift has consequences in the world as we see it. The conversational tone of this Original Edition invites the novice student into conversation with the Author, and even advanced students of A Course in Miracles have found a new clarity and a deeper understanding from their study of the Original Edition of the Course. The restoration of the previously lost material and presentation of the text in its original sequence enlivens the conversation with the Author and gives him a presence that some feel is lacking in the later editions. When encountering Schucman and Thetford's original edition, students frequently find fresh clarity as they read its wording or new understanding. Surely study of the Original Edition is essential to your curriculum.
A Course Miracles
I started reading the course probably around 2012. I am not sure exactly when but It has transformed my life for the good. I was raised as a fundamental, evangelical, charismatic Chrisianity. I took my relegiong very seriously and I was very devout but I was not very happy. A Course in MIracles showed my how to find happiness and peace on a daily basis. It is not for everyone it fit me very well and I am so grateful to have discoverd the course. If you decide to try the course out, I recommend doing the workbook just exactly like it tells you to do it. I have done the workbook 3 times. The first 2 times I read it more for content, the last time I used it as a spiritual practice following it as closely as I could. The workbook is a mind training course and I found that my mind responded much better when I followed the workbook instructions exactly as instructed. Needles to say I highly recommend this book.

A Course in Miracles
Each of us are God's Creation and we are all on a Spiritual Journey whether we accept that fact or not. This Text, Student Workbook and Teacher's Manual are beyond anything I have ever had the privilege to read before and I have read copiously on this subject matter. My husband and I found this book through others. We really liked how certain authors, associates and friends viewed the world around them...the love and peace in their thoughts. When each was asked, they were all students of A Course in Miracles and that is how we also became students of this course.
