Our Teachers and Staff

Photo of Robert Robert Perry brings to A Course in Miracles many years of private study and public teaching. He began teaching at Miracle Distribution Center in 1986, and has since then taught throughout North America and around the world. His teaching grows out of his dedication to the Course as his own path and his desire to assist others on this path. Over the years he has become a respected voice in Course circles and has written for many Course newsletters and magazines. Robert is the founder of the Circle of Atonement and the author of numerous books and booklets based on the Course. Among these are the popular An Introduction to ‘A Course in Miracles,’ and his updated introduction to the Course, entitled Path of Light: Stepping into Peace with ‘A Course in Miracles.’

Greg Greg Mackie has been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1991. He studied the Course intensively with Robert Perry at the Circle of Atonement for two years, and began teaching for the Circle in 1999. He is now writing articles for the Circle’s newsletter, A Better Way, and is the teacher in residence on the Circle’s website. On the website, he maintains a Course Q and A page where he answers questions about the Course submitted to him by Course students from around the world.

Allen retired in June of 2006, but continues to write Text commentaries for the Circle and teach his local class.
