Manual Reading Program for A Course in Miracles

Purpose of the Class

The Manual is often taken to be a kind of Q&A afterthought to the Course. Yet it is far more important than that. It can lift to a new level our understanding of what the Course is. It can show us that the Course wants to leave the realm of the purely mental and stride into our external lives. This program will lead you step by step through each section of the Manual, allowing you to grasp the real purpose of this final volume and process its implications for your life.

Class Format

This is a 17-week class designed to take you through the Manual with Robert Perry. Each week you will receive two sets of class notes by e-mail, and will have access to one pre-recorded telephone class led by Robert Perry on that week's class material.

1. The Readings

Sunday and Thursday mornings, you will receive, via e-mail, your reading material for that week. This reading will usually be one or two sections from the Manual, accompanied by commentary after each paragraph, written by Robert Perry.

2. Class Recordings

Each week there is a one-hour class recording in which you can hear Robert and Greg Mackie review the major themes of the prior two readings. Robert and Greg also field questions on those readings. 

3. Related Readings

Additionally, you will receive a number of extra, optional readings to fill out your understanding of particular Manual sections.

4. Archive of Manual Commentaries and Class Recordings

You will be given a page on our website which contains an archive of all the commentaries that have been sent to you, the related readings, and all the class recordings. Once you have completed the class, this page will be your permanent archive of the class materials. From this page, you also have the ability to “pause” the e-mails coming to you. This means that you won't fall behind if you go away for a few days—you simply pause the program, and restart it when you return!


The Manual class is $95. We believe this is an incredible value for a program that will guide you in an in-depth study of the Manual for Teachers.

Please Note: These commentaries are a paid subscription service. If you would like to use them in a study group, or have interested friends or family members, we ask that these individuals sign up for the program directly, rather than copies being distributed to them free of charge. We do offer a group discount of 30% off for three or more people. Interested parties can contact us for details. We try to be very generous with our materials, but our livelihood does depend on sales of materials like the commentaries.
Thank you for your consideration.


Your first commentary will be emailed to you the Monday after you place your order.

Regarding the &qupt;Manual for Teachers," I had honestly never expected to read it because, for me, it was a foregone conclusion that I did not want to be and never would be a Teacher. Needless to say, I've learned just how mistaken and off-the-mark that particular viewpoint was! Studying the "Manual" with Robert Perry and Greg Mackie has been a very rewarding experience. I recommend this program highly.

Dear Greg and Robert

Just wanted to express my gratitude for the wonderful work you did with the presentation of the Manual For Teachers. You added a wealth of insight through your commentary that I had not grasped in previous readings and likely would not have with multiple future readings. While I was not able to participate in the teleconferences I did enjoy listening to the recordings. As winter approaches and the days become shorter and the evenings longer I look forward to studying your presentation once more. Somehow it seems that when we deepen our understanding of any part of the Course our entire understanding of the Course is enhanced at the same time.

I would like to express again my gratitude for the work you did with the text in 2006. What you gave me was immeasurable. What you gave me was a love for the reading of the text. I have been going back through the text and commentaries again this year at the same pace and continue to increase my understanding and appreciation of the Course. I know that your effort has placed my understanding years ahead of where I could have taken it on my efforts alone. Where I had struggled before I can now hear the beauty.

Is there any chance that a similar work with The Song of Prayer might be in the future? Such a beautiful little booklet!
Once again
Thank you.
Peace and Blessings,

I eagerly looked forward to receiving and reading the commentary on the manual, which Robert sent us twice a week. He writes so well and illuminates the manual with ease. That is no easy task. I am already missing his emails.

The Manual Reading Program was amazing! I had read and studied the Course and was proceeding through the Workbook. I was doing this all on my own. Somewhere I had read that the Course was a self-study program. However I was having problems grasping a number of the Course's concepts so I signed up for the Manual Reading Program. It was very enlightening. Robert is a truly remarkable teacher of God. His knowledge and understanding of the Course is unsurpassed. I highly recommend it

I cannot speak highly enough of this course as simply reading the materials gave me more insights and enlightenment than I could ever have imagined possible. I can truthfully say that it created many "miracles" as my perceptions were constantly challenged and I opened to, as the Course says, "new ways of seeing things". I highly recommend this course of sharing and study.

I took Robert's class on the Manual and found it very helpful. Robert has a real knack at putting complex ideas into simple, easy to understand terms. His questions and examples are always thought provoking.

Dear Greg and Robert

My experience with the study lessons from The Manual for Teachers benefited me in a much deeper understanding of my role in God's Plan. Though I am by no means a Teacher or Healer I can see the path to becoming one much clearer.

Robert and Greg are excellent facilitators who may deny having all the attributes of Teachers of God, but most certainly have a great many of them.

Thank You both.

As Robert and Greg did on the Text study course, the commentary and telephone discussions on the Manual For Teachers were illuminating. Their broad and deep understanding of the Course opens up new meanings and understanding for their students. Highly recommended!

Hi, it has been an absolutely marvellous experince to study the Manual with the Manual Reading Program as a guide. It gave me a new "version" of the Manual.It is now much more accesible, much more understandable and much nearer to my heart.

I'm so grateful.
Love, Ulla from Sweden

Dear Greg and Robert

Just wanted to let you know how much your Manual class was appreciated. These last several months have been a real blessing. Thank you so much. I was inspired by attending your March workshop at the Villages in Florida. After some 20 years of dipping into the Course, I have now resolved to "get serious." (Am currently on the second review of the Workbook)

Once, again, thank you so very much. I have appreciated your sharing of the Course more than I can express.
Peace, Love, and Joy to you,
—Suzanne Gallogly

Dear Robert.

Thank YOU so much for providing this for us, Robert. It's wonderful to have the option of attending such a class regularly for wise guidance, warm fellowship, and peaceful meditations. It is/has made a tangible difference to me. I do see more clearly and love more easily than a year ago. I now truly do believe that even I might 'make it' someday; perhaps I also appreciate that I am 'making it' right now. I give thanks for my Mighty Companions; Dear One, I give thanks for you.
God's blessings

Dear Robert.

Just a note to thank you for the time, effort and thoughtfulness you put into the Manual program. It has been a component of the Course with which I have struggled and as a consequence, largely ignored. However, your program has enabled me to enter another phase of my journey, that being a better understanding of my relationship with Jesus. In fact, I have known no greater peace, since reading and re-reading the section of "Jesus — Christ". For this I thank you.
Kindest regards.

Nancy on 06/10/2009 12:00am

Dear Robert,

Thanks to you and Greg for being our teachers. It was a revelation to find all the treasures in the Manual. I feel my understanding and appreciation of the Course have expanded tremendously. Thank you for the inspiration you give to grow in the teachings and their applications.

Pam on 06/10/2009 12:00am

Dear Robert,

I would like to thank you again for this course of study. I printed off all the commentaries and found the last ones so moving that I could scarcely read for weeping. I have definitely been inspired to spend even more time with the Course and look forward to bigger changes in my life.
Thank you again and very best wishes.
