Miracles in Manhattan with Jon Mundy, Ph.D.: The Vedanta & A Course in Miracles
December 9, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm EST
CRS presents Miracles in Manhattan, lectures on the teachings of A Course in Miracles and related texts and topics, with Jon Mundy, Ph.D. and occasional guest lecturers.
The topic for December’s lecture is the Vedanta & A Course in Miracles. Guest David Brown will be joining Jon to discuss this rich topic. Advaita Vedanta is a classic Indian path to spiritual realization. The idea is that the soul (true Self) is at the highest metaphysical Reality (God). As with ACIM, followers of Vedanta seek spiritual liberation through acquiring Knowledge of one’s identity as the Self (Atman). Bill Thetford, Ph.D. Helen’s companion in the composition of the Course, once said that A Course in Miracles is the Christian Vedanta.

Dr. Jon Mundy met Dr. Helen Schucman, the scribe for A Course in Miracles, in 1973. Helen introduced Jon to the Course and served as his mentor and guide till she became ill in 1980. He is the author of Living A Course in Miracles. After Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, it is currently the best-selling book based on the teaching of A Course in Miracles. www.miraclesmagazine.org
During the 1980’s, following a deep awakening during Encounter Group therapy, David Brown spent nine months in India with Swami Chinmayanada, the founder of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide. David traveled all over India with Swamiji and received his teachings of Vedanta first hand. Subsequent to that life-changing experience, David has continued his studies of Vedanta with Vedanta scholars in the USA and he has led study groups in Advaita (non-dual) Vedanta for well over 20 years. Finding a connecting thread of Truth in all true spirituality, David also spent several years in Toronto as a student of Lama Namse, a Tibetan Buddhist Kargupya monk. Prior to Ken Wapnick’s passing, David and his partner, Lynne, spent three years studying A Course in Miracles with Ken.
“David is in his 80’s. He’s been at this work for quite a long while studying both Vedanta and ACIM. He’s quite a sincere gentleman.” – Jon Mundy
