Inspiration

When your body and your ego and your dreams are gone, you will know that you will last forever. Perhaps you think this is accomplished through death, but nothing is accomplished through death, because death is nothing. Everything is accomplished through life, and life is of the mind and in the mind. The body neither lives nor dies, because it cannot contain you who are life. (T-6.V(A)1:1-4)

Recent CCC Classes

Accepting the Atonement
Most Course students know that the sole responsibility of the miracle worker is to accept the Atonement. But what does it mean to do so? How do we accept the Atonement? New material in the Complete and Annotated Edition makes this both clear and doable.

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

Past wounds
It is commonly assumed that delving into one's past wounds is the key to understanding oneself and is the path to healing. What does A Course in Miracles say about this?

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

A Better Way

January/March Issue of A Better Way #139 In January, we released the Circle of Atonement's new Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles ("CE" for short). For this edition of A Better Way, we asked people who played some part in producing the CE how they are experiencing their reading of the new edition, now that it is the version of the Course that they are actually using day to day. We hope you enjoy reading the responses. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.
