PARTICIPATING COURSE TEACHERS (MESSENGERS)
Carolina Corada (Venezuela, Ibiza)
Carolina is modern-day mystic. After discovering A Course in Miracles in 1990 and throughout the next 15 years, she has become in one of the international well-known Course teachers in the Spanish-speaking world. She offers her teachings in conferences, workshops, regular sessions and with her self-inquiry method IntroDanza. Carolina’s honest healing impulse has touched the hearts of over 8,000 men, women and children at an international scale in Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, Sweden, Ireland, Denmark, UK, USA, Mexico and Brazil in her talks, retreats, conferences, charities, rehab centres, international companies and through the creation and organization of the first international festival for A Course in Miracles, the Ibiza Enlight Festival, where teachers and students celebrate together. Carolina visited and taught at CRS in 2016.
Rosa Claudia Gómez “Cacaya” (Colombia, USA)
“Life has given me wonderful gifts and talents. Since childhood I felt inclined to the arts until I finally became an artist and a teacher. Painful and difficult lessons I received and thanks to the work I’ve been doing with A Course in Miracles and Ho’oponopono — this work allowing me to clean the lens through which I see life — today I have been able to transform painting into a space of spontaneous expression that blooms from within with the absolute certainty that it is not ‘me’ who paints, but my hands being used as an instrument for God’s creation. When I began teaching the visually impaired, I understood more what the “spiritual cleansing” meant, and as I went deeper within, images reached me about how would it be to Paint with my eyes closed. Each painting becomes a unique moment in which her intention is to connect with those with whom false beliefs and painful memories are shared, so that these can be consciously or unconsciously released together. “If I am healed, we all heal. If you are healed, all of us are.”
Efrat Sar-Shalom (Israel)
In 1987 Efrat started studying the Course with Avi. She was convinced that the lessons were written especially for her. She began to teach the Course at the same time that Avi was translating the Course with Ruth Yasur. Ruth and Efrat would go over the translation in Hebrew and compare it with the English. Then Seffi Hanegbi and Efrat met in the year 2000. After they talked of God and the desert and peace work, they decided to create a centre for love and peace in the Judean desert in the spirit of A Course in Miracles. The name “Zman Midbar,” came immediately to their minds. Later, while Seffi worked on peace activities and journeys through the desert, Efrat taught A Course in Miracles whose essence is peace, and held resolution workshops between Arab and Jewish women. In 2009, Efrat published Peace-Salaam-Shalom, a book featuring quotations from A Course in Miracles about peace in Hebrew, English and Arabic. This is the first time ever that an Arabic reader can read (in Arabic) the ideas of the Course.
José Luís Molina (Madrid, Spain)
“I am the president of the Aurora Association for the Awakening (Asociación Aurora para el Despertar) conceived to extend A Course in Miracles. I am a student of more than 20 yrs. and follower of Rosa Mª Wynn, translator of the Spanish text. Five years ago I abandoned my profession to dedicate myself entirely to studying the Course. I started with a Study Group in Madrid; now there are three. I regularly visit about 10 groups around Spain and have also offered workshops in Switzerland and Venezuela. My written work includes several books about the Course including Chronicles from Japan (Crónica desde Jabón).
Luis Falçao (South Africa)
Lu was born a mystic and as young boy, he often conversed with Jesus and believed (regardless of what others tried to teach him) that there was more to the world than meets the eye. On the 10th November 2011, Lu experienced thirty days of Divine Revelations and in those thirty days he read the whole text of A Course in Miracles. The next day he started teaching as if he had done so his whole life. Lu has since then dedicated his life and voice to the Voice for God in the dream of illusions. Lu works as a CEO of a large multi-national company where he helps his employees, colleagues and clients give up the idea of sacrifice and scarcity, and to surrender to God the “fear of lack”. As a Teacher for God “disguised” as business leader, Lu helps all he meets in the “business world” develop a deeper sense of self-awareness, Christ Consciousness, and the Atonement with God.
Michel Gaymard (Mexico)
Michel Gaymard began his journey of learning and practicing through A Course in Miracles in 2008. When he finished his studies within a group located in the Roma Colonia neighborhood of Mexico city in 2009, he began teaching sessions based on the book, in prisons and hospitals, and later went on to open study groups in several places of the city. Michel later hosted an online radio program and then an online TV program based on the Course on canalG.com. He was then invited to teach in Spain, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Paraguay, Peru, Costa Rica, Italy, Austria and Panamá will be the destinations for 2017 as well as Ibiza and the Enlight Festival. Michel Gaymard has a YouTube channel with over 900 videos and is known for teaching in a fun and entertaining way inspired by his training in the performing arts and comedy.
Patricia Besada (Argentina)
Patricia is one of the founders of “Milagros en Red” (Miracles on the web), a center for the study of A Course In Miracles that since 2001 offers learning resources for all Spanish speaking students. She also manages the website for “Milagros en Red,” a site that has been visited by thousands and thousands of students coming from all parts in Latin America. This site also offers teaching materials from more than 25 different authors, who gave her permission to translate them and make them freely available to the Spanish speaking ACIM community. She also participated in the International ACIM conferences held in Los Angeles (2003) and Salt Lake City (2005). She was one of the translation reviewers for Gary Renard’s book that became a milestone for all ACIM students: The Disappearance of the Universe. Her translation work has also spanned the works of Jon Mundy’s Discovering A Course in Miracles and Accept the Gift by Doctors Frances Vaughn and Roger Walsh. She is the director of the book collection “De los Milagros,” where she has published Inspired by Miracles by Dan Joseph and the second edition of Discovering A Course in Miracles, an exclusive edition for the Latin American market. In June, 2013 she published her first book, The Book of Miracles. Currently she teachers the Course in various important cities in Argentina, Spain, Mexico, Peru and Chile.
Steve Thompson (UK, Ibiza)
Steve became interested in spirituality after experiencing a Tony Robbins event called “Unleash the Power Within” in 2007. A whole new world opened up before him: Reiki, Quantum Physics, NLP and Eastern philosophies. It was in London, 2008 When Steve was presented with The Disappearance of the Universe and A Course in Miracles. Since then, his book has remained open. Steve has attended many ACIM gatherings and talks within the UK, Australia, Denmark, Hawaii, USA and Ireland with teachers and students. He has been running a successful Facebook Group called True Love & Forgiveness based on ACIM for the past 8 years. He says he began his honest transformation upon his arrival to Ibiza where he started with Carolina, the co-organization of the Enlight Festival.
Yasuko Kasaki (NYC, Japan)
Yasuko Kasaki is an internationally beloved spiritual writer, counselor, healer, lecturer and translator from Tokyo. She is widely recognized as the person most responsible for the spread of A Course in Miracles throughout Japan. In 2004 she founded CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing), the first and only spiritual center devoted to the teaching and practice of A Course in Miracles in New York City. She has taught and worked with thousands of people from around the world to help resolve their mental and physical issues and witness miracles. She presents at the CMC’s annual ACIM Conferences in the U.S., and several times a year she gives large seminars throughout Japan. Yasuko has authored 15 of books in Japanese about the Course, as well as numerous novels, short stories, essays and collections of photographs. Her translations of the ACIM Workbook and of books by Course teachers Jon Mundy, Gabrielle Bernstein and David Hoffmeister have also been published in Japan. Yasuko’s spiritual writing and lectures are celebrated for their clearly stated explanations of complex concepts illustrated by captivating personal stories of struggle and triumph, drawn from her long career as a writer, motorcyclist, and spiritual counselor.
Xavi Demelo (Barcelona, Spain)
Xavi’s Journey with A Course in Miracles began in Argentina, in 2004. He was there to present a theater play as an author. His background is found in the world of the performing arts where he has been an author, a story teller, an actor, an entertainer, and a stand-up comedian. In 2008, whilst participating in a yoga festival, he bought the book and began the lessons. He is currently dedicated to online training although he does occasionally offer workshops in person. He has created an online school called “Academia Nos Gustamos” (We like ourselves Academy), which is comprised of six monographic courses, one online workshop, Miracles Workers, and an online membership club called “Nos Gustamos” (We like ourselves). He has students in every Spanish-speaking country and is very grateful for this to the Holy Spirit. He loves public speaking as much as writing. He has published eight books and has another eight already written and waiting to be published. He uses quite a bit of humor in his communication and in the transmission of The Course. Thus he defines himself as a “therapeutic humorist.” (His editor came up with this expression and he loves it.)
