Practice Receiving Spiritual Guidance Using Principles of A Course in Miracles — Wednesdays in May
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
For the next 4 weeks let’s practice receiving and sharing spiritual guidance from the voice of love inside our minds.
We’ll begin each session with a guided meditation to prepare our minds to connect with our inner guide. Then we’ll practice asking for and receiving guidance for ourselves and one another.
There is a suggested donation of $20, and class may run past 9 pm depending on the number of people attending and amount of discussion.
Our primary goal is to learn to recognize the voice of love’s guidance that is always available to us — but which we usually block out! Slowly, we will re-train our eyes to see the world around us as one that is always presenting opportunities for us to give and receive love.
Feel free to bring in specific issues that you would like to receive guidance about!
This class is appropriate for beginners and for advanced students. It’s kind of like going to gym — no matter your fitness level, practice is the key to growth.
Familiarity with the Course or experience with meditation or improvisation is not required. All that is required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore and play!
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 guide 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.
