About us

“Contained within the pages of A Course in Miracles are tools that will allow you to see the world in a completely different light.  You will discover a world of unchangeable love, and a world of unchangeable peace.  This world already exists deep within you, has always been, and shall always remain.  All it takes to enter that world is your willingness to reconsider, to challenge, every belief you now hold.  You will discover that your true nature is Spirit, an idea in the Mind of God.  As such, you are part of God and can never be separated from Him.  As part of God, you have been endowed with the creative power of the universe so there is nothing which you cannot do as you exercise that power.  The Course states quite clearly that you are the creator of your life and no happenings can come to you except by your own choice.  As you come to experience this truth it will be for you a doorway to freedom for tendencies to blame others disappears.   As you move into the experience of love and freedom, you will find yourself dwelling more and more in peace, freedom, joy, and a love which is beyond the measure of anything you can comprehend.” (acim-jbw)

Mondays, starting January 2nd –7:15 to 8:45pm. The focus of this class is the “Text.” What It Says: “Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” The Course makes a fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal; between knowledge and perception. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of Love or God. Truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. It can be unrecognized, but it cannot be changed. It applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real. It has no opposite; no beginning and no end. It merely is.  Facilitator/Contact person: Rita Johnson 415-328-5256 rita.johnson@acenterforinnerpeace.org

Tuesday, starting January 10th - 7:15 to 8:45pm The focus is the Course’s “Workbook for Students” for it provides the practical basis of the Course and includes 365 lessons, one for each day of the year.
