46: What Does the Course Say about Boundaries?


We all know healthy boundaries are important. Long before boundaries were celebrated as an essential part of self-care, Robert Frost wrote, “Good fences make good neighbors.” And yet, as Course students, the topic of boundaries brings up many significant questions:

How do we reconcile boundaries with the spiritual teaching that we ultimately have no boundaries, that the lines between us are a fiction of the mind?

When does an emphasis on setting boundaries get in the way of the supreme value of love and forgiveness?

How would the Course advise us to enact a boundary or even to end a relationship?

In this podcast, Circle founder Robert Perry and executive director Emily Bennington share what the Course has to teach us on this very important topic.
