What is ACIM?

A Course in Miracles is a unique, spiritual curriculum designed to gently help you remember what you really are and what the true nature is of your relationship with God. It consists of three books published in a single volume: a Text, a Workbook for Students, and a Manual for Teachers. It was first published in 1976.

Here are just a few of the key teachings in the Course:

- The term “Son of God” includes not only Jesus but every single one of us.

- Atonement means that our so-called “sins” never occurred in the first place and the rift with God never happened (at-one-ment).

- The physical dimension and our physical bodies are an illusion we created in an attempt to separate ourselves from God.

- Since our physical bodies are an illusion, death is an illusion. We are, in fact, eternal spiritual beings.

- We are asleep in Heaven, dreaming that we are having a physical experience. We never really left Heaven.

- We are not, and never have been, separate from God or each other. The belief that we are separate is the origin of all human ills.

- The ego -- the “I” that you think you are -- is the creator of all of your false perceptions. The ego does not want you to learn the truth because, if you do, it will lose its stranglehold on you.

- Forgiveness means giving up your false perceptions. This is the single-most important teaching contained in the Course.

ACIM will completely change the way you perceive the world.
