91: How Do We Forgive Ourselves?

Students of A Course in Miracles typically recognize that the Course’s main teaching is forgiveness. Yet many often assume that this is about forgiving ourselves. Even if we forgive others, don’t we need to forgive ourselves first? Robert and Emily talk about this question in this episode of Exploring A Course in Miracles. Is the Course talking mainly about forgiving other people or forgiving ourselves? What is the relation between them? And which one comes first? If you want to learn more about what the Course teaches on forgiveness, don’t miss this discussion.


We are here to help you with both the theory and application of what A Course In Miracles (ACIM) offers.
