What is A Course in Miracles?

A Course in Miracles is a modern-day program for healing the Mind, removing all judgment, learning to trust the Higher Self/Holy Spirit/Intuition, and coming to consistent Peace of Mind.

David Hoffmeister

A Course in Miracles (ACIM, or “the Course”) is a complete spiritual thought system, which consists of a three-volume curriculum: a Text, a Workbook for Students, and a Manual for Teachers. It teaches that the way to experience inner peace and universal love—the remembrance of God—is by releasing guilt through forgiveness. The Course thus focuses on the healing of all our relationships—the ones we have with each other, with ourself, the world we perceive, and ultimately with God.  

ACIM also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.” Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles is therefore a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.

The Course was initially scribed and typed up during the years of 1965–1972 by two professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University: Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford. It was published on June 26, 1976 (by The Foundation for Inner Peace) and has gone on to sell over 3 million copies in more than 25 languages.
