Inner Vision Workout Using Principles of A Course in Miracles — Fall 2014
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
Drawing on the principles of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and lessons from the ACIM Workbook & other resources, we’ll practice meditation & creative visualization to develop our intuitive abilities and experientially explore some tasty questions!
What prevents us from being happy now?
Is there a better way to see ourselves and the world?
What is an Inner Teacher & how can we tune in?
What do we really want to do?
Discussion of these experiences and how to apply them to situations that come up in our lives is welcome, but we will aim to spend the majority of the time experiencing rather than trying to use our logical minds to understand and solve problems.
Students of the Course will appreciate this class as a lab for developing our ability to dialog with the Holy Spirit (the Course’s name for the inner voice or teacher who also speaks from the point of view of the thought system that recognizes that only love exists). That said, familiarity with the Course is not required. Believing in “God” or familiarity with the concept of an “inner voice” is not even required. All that is required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore and play.
Instructor Christopher Pelham is the Director and a co-founder of CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing). He balances his time between overseeing the growth and health of the CRS community, producing arts/cultural/educational events at the Center, and working as a CRS Healer and student and teacher of A Course in Miracles. He has previously also worked in educational publishing and as a web designer, writer/editor, actor (most notably for several seasons with Doris Duke Impact Award Winner Johnny Simons at the Hip Pocket Theatre in Ft. Worth, TX and with artists Richard Bach, Harold Lehmann, and Lake Simons in NYC), producer and videographer. He graduated from Duke University in 1991 with a degree in English. In addition to studying ACIM off and on with Yasuko Kasaki since 2003, he studied the Spiritual Psychology of Acting with London-based teacher John Osborne Hughes and Jay Johnstone-based Improvisation with the late Gloria Maddox.
