A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a psychological self study program encompassing universal spiritual themes through which one can learn to replace fearful and judgmental thoughts with loving and forgiving thoughts and thereby develop a peaceful and joyful mind. In this introductory lecture, we will describe how the Course came into existence, what its universal spiritual themes are, and how the Course structure and exercises are designed to achieve its intended results. If there is time, we will also practice a meditation exercise drawn from the Course to provide an experience of what doing the Course is actually like.
GnosticNYC exists to promote the practice of Gnostic spirituality in New York City by providing events, programs, and a place to meet and worship.
About the Speakers
Yasuko Kasaki, born in Tokyo, Japan, is a novelist, journalist, spiritual counselor and teacher of A Course in Miracles (ACIM). She began offering spiritual counseling, reading, instruction and healing based on ACIM to individuals and groups in 1999 and in 2004 opened CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing), a private community center in New York City’s East Village dedicated to the teaching and practice of ACIM and the healing and creative arts. Offering ACIM-based classes, meditation, energy healing and private counseling (as well as lectures, workshops, film screenings and performances) to the public seven days a week, CRS is the first and only school and center for ACIM in New York City. She has written 14 books on ACIM in Japanese, published by Natural Spirit Publishing Inc, as well as more than a dozen novels and collections of essays. Many of Ms. Kasaki’s students have also begun to offer psycho-spiritual healing and instruction at CRS and elsewhere, outside NYC and throughout Japan.
Christopher Pelham is Director and co-founder of CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing). He began studying A Course in Miracles with Yasuko Kasaki in 2003 and began offering spiritual healing this year. Something of a jack-of-all-trades, he has worked as an actor, a journalist and copy editor, a curator and producer, a videographer and editor, a director, a web designer…. He believes that we are fundamentally and essentially unlimited creative beings and that the purpose of the creative act is to share the experience of remembering this knowledge of who we really are. Therefore, he sees art and healing as having the same function but different forms. At CRS, he tries to facilitate both.
