57: What is the Holy Spirit?

If you’re a Course student, you’ve likely approached the Holy Spirit many more times than you have approached a conversation with God.

“Ask the Holy Spirit.”

“Turn it over to the Holy Spirit.”

These are such common phrases in practice, but we still see a lot of confusion around who and what He (Holy Spirit) is.

In this episode of Exploring A Course In Miracles, Robert Perry and Emily Bennington discuss the basic questions to help viewers gain a more complete understanding of the Holy Spirit.

  • How did He come into being?
  • What does He do in our lives?
  • What is His relationship to God and Jesus?

We hope you enjoy the episode and strengthen your relationship with both the Holy Spirit and the Course itself.


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.
