104: How to Talk About A Course In Miracles With Friends & Family

Have you ever been asked about A Course in Miracles by a friend or family member and been completely tied up in knots trying to explain it? In this episode, Robert and Emily talk about how to share the Course without being embarrassed or overly evangelical, and how to respond to concerns from friends and family members who are anti-Course (because they think it’s dangerous, culty, or heretical) and, also, how to respond to concerns from those who are open to learning more about the Course but take issue with its language being too Christian or too masculine, its complexity, and so on. If you’re ready to come out of “the Course closet” and talk about the Course as your path, you won’t want to miss this conversation.

Since 1993, our purpose has been to help with both the theory and practical application of A Course in Miracles. We are the publisher of the Complete and Annotated Edition of the Course (known as the “CE”), which is available as a paperback*ebook*, and via Audible.

Our work grows out of our commitment to be as faithful as possible to what A Course in Miracles says,  years of dedication to walking this path ourselves, and a desire to see the Course’s purpose realized in the lives of students and in the world.
