The Text is the foundation of A Course in Miracles. Doing the Course is simply a process of learning and internalizing its thought system, and the Text is where that thought system is laid out. It is an unparalleled spiritual tour de force. Careful study of it will change your outlook in ways that perhaps nothing else can.
Many students, however, find the Text to be very hard going, and wish they had a deeper grasp of what they were reading. For this reason, we have created programs such as the Text Reading Program and books such as the Illuminated Text series to help students deepen their understanding of the Text. The 2015 Text Study Program, building on the foundation of these earlier works, aims to take us even deeper into the heart of this spiritual masterpiece.
In this program, we will read five Text sections during the week. Then, we will have a live class once a week. In this class, led by a team of teachers from the Circle Course Community, we will review each of the five sections studied that week, discuss them together, ask and answer questions, puzzle out difficult passages, and-most importantly-have multiple opportunities to apply what we're reading to our daily lives. As the Text itself says,"This is not a course in the play of ideas, but in their practical application" (T-11.VIII.5:3).
This program will be taught by Text Reading Program and Illuminated Text co-creator Greg Mackie and experienced Circle Course Community teachers Martha Fitzgerald, Ken Froessel, Barb Hembling, Judy Robb, George Porter, and Linda Snow.
The 2015 Text Study Program will offer you the opportunity to study the Text, benefit from the insights of skilled teachers, join with your fellow students, and apply what you're learning to your own life as never before. It will help you get the most out of the bottomless treasure trove that is the Text of A Course in Miracles.
