CLASSES BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES
You may still feel plagued with fear, anger, resentment, self-doubt and guilt cropping up here and there. Intellectually you know better, but those old, subconscious tapes still seem to be around.
Self-image transformations means changing the way we perceive ourselves. To transform our self-image, we don't need to change what we do. We need to change who we think we are. What we do comes from who we think we are. In A Course in Miracles we are taught to remind ourselves frequently, "God is but Love, and therefore so am I," and "I am not a body, I am free. For I am still as God created me."
This course will provide practice in becoming aware of the trance formations that make us act like robots, controlled by unconscious, habitual ego belief systems. You will learn to retrain your mind to develop new mental habits while releasing those old tapes which are limiting and painful.
* Learn to feel more loved, accepted and loving.
* Feel more relaxed for a greater experience of wellness.
* Soften the grip of unwanted habits as your self-image changes.
* Build the habit of recognizing tension and guilt and letting it go.
* Open to greater possibilities and fulfillment as you move into your true spiritual purpose.
~Knowing Your True Purpose
As you open to understanding your true purpose, you enter a new time — a time of looking at the concepts you are holding about yourself and others and letting them be replaced by the awareness of your unlimited True Self.
• Understand how the veils of forgetfulness can be lifted to give you a new sense of life purpose. • Learn how to change your beliefs about time. • Learn to access long-held thought patterns you picked up as a child, and heal these limited thoughts with the help of the Light within you. • Find out why it is important to quiet your mind and listen to your Self, and how you can better serve your true identity as Spirit in this life.
• Receive insight on new choices, new ideas, and learn how you can extend the qualities of your true Self in your life. • Take an inward journey to a Haven of Greater Awareness to connect and identify with qualities of Spirit, such as universal Love, and feeling deep inner peace. • Transcend time and communicate with your unlimited Self. • Imagine seeing life differently in the years ahead as you dissolve blocks to the greater awareness of Love's Presence. • Practice seeing yourself knowing and expressing your true life purpose.
~Awakening to Your True Self
In this course you will look at core aspects of you personality which are holding onto ideas that do not come from your true Self. Some of the ways these aspects express themselves include self-righteousness, suffering, victimhood and projecting guilt and blame onto others. If you still find yourself sabotaging your innate happiness, this course will give you practice in identifying and healing those self-defeating aspects. You will learn how to quiet your mind to let your true Self lovingly transform your mind — your thoughts and feelings — to higher levels of awareness.
As you learn to quiet your mind and listen, you awaken to the real you • to your true Self. As you gradually welcome awakening to your inner Spirit, your experience changes to allow in more joy, love and the knowing that you are safe in God. Your true Self is your true nature, the essence of what you are. You will learn to allow in the awareness of your true Self more fully and receive helpful insight. Your true Self is your inner Teacher and will help you transform your thinking to see the outer world differently to live a happier and more purposeful life.
As your thinking increasingly comes from your true Self, you become more gentle with yourself and others. You are able to see past the fearful thinking and resulting behavior in yourself and others, to see the true reality of Love that lies behind all fear. You are able to make choices and decisions from a place of Wisdom and peace.
~The Transforming Power of Trust
This course will help you feel more confident about trusting your Inner Guidance, spiritual intuition and your ability to know what is right for you. Trust opens the door to living a purposeful life, following Spirit. Trust helps you experience the quiet peace that comes with letting go of fearful thinking. When you trust that your Source is working for you and with you, you relax and allow It to lead you.
Learn how to let go of the doubt that cuts you off from experiencing trust in areas of:
• Knowing your innate abundance
• Allowing loving relationships
• Becoming increasingly aware of quieting your mind to listen to Inner Wisdom.
Learn what pushes your buttons, causing you to lose your trust, and how to get back to trusting your true Self as your source of Guidance. Trusting your inner Teacher changes how you see everyone and everything. This trust allows you to see the world from a new perspective of oneness. As you place your trust in your true Self, you see through the false veils of ego thoughts of conflict, limitation and lack. You are unlimited Love and Light. The more you can trust in the Christ within, the more it will be reflected in your life.
~How to Be Loving and Be Loved
Within everyone is a desire to return to Love, our Source. In our search for Love, we may look to someone outside of ourselves to give it to us. In this stage we are not aware of the Love within. We don�t recognize our inner worth, our Light, our own perfection. As long as we continue to look outside ourselves to fill this sense of emptiness, we will feel unfulfilled.
When you realize that you have not found Love by looking for it from others, you are ready to go into a new stage of your life. You are ready to walk into an expanded awareness of Love. You are ready to consistently express your true unconditional loving nature. You are ready to wake up to What you are. In this course you will practice healing and releasing your barriers to Love. With the support of others, you will experience the depth of unconditional Love which lies within you. You will learn how to tap into this reservoir and bring Love to situations in your life which need healing.
You will learn to let go and let Love take over, seeing the world from a new perspective. You recognize that Love is giving, not getting. As Love extends from you, the sense of scarcity and lack gently falls away. Extending the Love that you are is your top priority. It is what you are here to learn and teach. You will focus on opening up to that Love and letting It shine through. Love is the healer. It will change your life.

~The Healing Bridge of Symbols and Rituals
Throughout history, mystics have used rituals to form connections between the consciousness world of form and the inner, spiritual world which is without form. We believe we live in a physical dimension of time and form. From the perspective of form, it is impossible to perceive the formless infinity of God All That Is. Symbols and rituals can be bridges to a deeper awareness of the reality of Love�s oneness.
This course will help you understand and use the power of rituals as pathways to experiences which transcend time and form. You will learn about potential pitfalls which may cause rituals to block the very spiritual awakening they were intended to assist. You will discover the root meaning and intent of thousand-year-old rituals. You will see how to transform old, lifeless rituals into empowering avenues to knowing the infinite Self. With this understanding, you will create your own inspired ritual to experience a transcendent awareness of your true inner Spirit.

~The Synergy of Intimate Relationships
All of us are searching for intimacy, companionship and nurturing. You may ask, Why have I had such difficulty with intimate relationships in my life? We find the keys in our own self-worth issues and our willingness to be intimate with ourselves.
Intimacy is a peak experience. We intuitively recognize that in-to-me-see is essential to growth and the enhancement of self-worth. In this course you will learn the answers to common questions such as: What is intimacy, and how do I recognize it? How do I know if I can handle a truly intimate relationship? How can I prepare for it?
In this course, you will see how we each draw to us the relationships we need to show us the beliefs and attitudes that are keeping us stuck, that are blocking our path to the Light within. You will look at the roadblocks you put in the way of intimacy and how to move past them.
With the help of experiential processes and meditations, you will look at troublesome situations in your life and see how to transform these situations with the help of the all powerful force of Love that is within you. You will see how it feels when you are playing the separation game by focusing on differences, and how to change that to the �Oneness game� by looking past differences to the innate goodness in others.
~Star Child – Seeing the Innocence Within
The Star Child is that childlike essence within you, that energy of Love which pierces through the confusion and brings clear vision into your life. Star Child lightly and gently helps you let go of struggle. It is your inner Comforter, your innocent Self.

Your Star Child will joyfully expand your awareness to be deceived no more, to wake up from your dream of separation.
~Adventure into the Sacred Life
Self-realization comes when we acknowledge our true purpose and have the courage to follow it. Many have found that when they help others, they help themselves. There is no greater act of self-empowerment than that of empowering another. A sacred life, dedicated to remembering the truth about ourselves and others, is the fast track to true, lasting happiness. The sacred life begins when you transcend the duality of me/you and no longer see yourself as separate from others.
This course examines the inner drive and motivations to serve the awakening. It will explore both the potential pitfalls and enormous personal rewards of choosing spiritual service as a pathway of return to your Source. The quality of your passage in the sacred life depends on the clarity of your intention. In the sacred life, you serve as a bridge which connects yourself and others with the All. You transcend your separate identity, reunite with your Self and act as a channel for God's healing.
