Recent CCC Classes

“The Fear of Redemption”
This section in Chapter 13 is one of the more powerful, stand-out sections in the Text. What we will focus on in this class is the practical application in the section, in which we uncover “the loving mind that thought it made [delusions] in anger.”

Note, you must be a CCC member in order to listen to these classes.

A Special Curriculum
“A Special Curriculum” (T-12.VII) stresses that we are not in a good position to be our own teacher and design our own curriculum. What implications does this have for how we learn the Course and for how we teach the Course?

Note, you must be a CCC Teacher in order to listen to these classes.

A Better Way

April/May Issue of A Better Way #140 The article in this issue is one by Greg entitled "From False Guiltlessness to True Guiltlessness: A Commentary on Helen's Concept of 'Healthy Guilt Feelings.'" In our Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles (CE), there is a curious line that says, "The concept of healthy guilt feelings has great merit" (T-5.V.6:1). Given the Course's teaching that we are guiltless, how can guilt feelings be healthy? Greg shows that there is in fact a continuum of sorts that runs from a false, ego-based form of "guiltlessness" all the way to the true guiltlessness that the Course regards as salvation. Learning more about this continuum can give us a very practical approach to our own feelings of guilt. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.

Should We Forgive the Ego? 
It seems to me that Course students are constantly condemning the ego and fighting against it. This seems to contradict the Course's teaching on forgiveness. Since the Course says we should forgive everyone, shouldn't we forgive the ego as well?  Read more or post a reply»
