A Course in Miracles was born when Bill Thetford and Helen Schucman joined to demonstrate “a better way” in their psychology department, a way in which people could cooperate rather than compete. Thus, if A Course in Miracles was the answer to their desire for a better way, it implies it is a handbook for all of us in how to get along. In this episode of A Course in Miracles Radio, Robert Perry and Emily Bennington discuss ten Course-based teachings that can help us become a source of harmony in our daily interactions and in the world.

Episode overview:
