On July 1-3, 2011, Marianne Williamson taught a workshop on A Course in Miracles in Los Angeles, California. The topic of the weekend was how miracles — shifts in thinking from fear to love — make all the difference in how we live and how we feel. Learning to think differently — to stand psychologically and emotionally on a different ground of being — is the spiritual journey from anxiety to inner peace.
This audio workshop by the New York Times best-selling author of A Return to Love, deals with practical issues such as: How do we make the switch from fear to love? What are the practical keys? What makes a miracle happen? What makes forgiveness more than just a word, what does it offer us, and how do we do it? Where do our relationships fit in? Why are they often painful, and how can they be miraculous instead? In what way is our relationship to God the key to our success in the world? How do we find inner peace, and help create peace in the world around us?
“Words can't express what the weekend meant to me."
"My life has been altered forever as a result of this weekend." - Workshop attendees
In this transcribed excerpt from the workshop, Williamson talks about how she came across A Course in Miracles, and the essence of what it's all about:
"The reason reading Volume 1 and Volume 2 simultaneously was great for me personally was because the theoretical foundation of Volume 1 was explaining to me what I was doing in Volume 2. Because what Volume 2 does, the Course (in Miracles) says, is it trains the mind to think along the lines that the text sets forth. So the text is this marvelous philosophy about how we should live but Volume 2, the workbook, is actually a training of our mental musculature, as it were, because our process here has to do with taking the abstract intellectual understanding of Volume 1 and making that, what the Course in Miracles calls “journey without distance from here to here”. It’s one thing to know that I should be forgiving. It is another thing to be able to forgive..."
