Let me be still and listen to the truth.

A Heartfelt Request

Thank you so much for visiting our site. If you find our resources helpful, will you consider making a small donation?

We rely on voluntary contributions for more than half our income. Without them, we would not exist. Nor would all our materials — materials that add up to by far the largest A Course in Miracles resource-base in the world.

Any amount you are able to offer is hugely welcome. It will help sustain our work, and help ensure we can continue to be of maximum service to all who seek to follow, or simply know more about, the distinct and wonderful spiritual path laid out in the Course.


Support the Circle

The Circle is funded entirely through the sale of our publications and services and the generosity of those who share our purpose and value what we offer. Monetary donations are crucial to our existence. We are deeply grateful for all contributions—large and small.

We are very pleased to announce a new daily Text phone class for 2014, a one-hour evening class. We will also be continuing our morning Workbook phone class. These will be taught by Circle Course Community teachers, along with Robert Perry and Greg Mackie. For details, please go here.
