Is the Course a self-study course?

The short answer, in our opinion, is no. Though the Course is often depicted as a "self-study" course by its students, the author of the Course never described it that way himself. He did, however, indicate in the pages of the Course itself how he intended it to be studied. Based on a careful examination of the Manual for Teachers, we believe that A Course in Miracles, rather than a self-study course, is intended to be a path one receives from one's teacher

We believe that the teacher-pupil relationship described in the Manual is the answer to the myriad problems Course students face in making sense of this massive, sophisticated, challenging book—problems that have been exacerbated by the idea that A Course in Miracles is a self-study Course. And so we believe it is time to seriously reconsider this idea.
