The Course in Miracles is a teaching of spiritual psychology and philosophy with inner peace as its goal. Designed to strengthen awareness of the presence of love and the capacity to receive inner guidance, the course offers practical and theoretical tools to repattern thoughts and release guilt, fear, anger and disease. It reminds the student that there are no accidents and that the outer world we perceive is but a reflection of the inner mind. Although Christian terminology is used, the Course encompasses universal themes and embraces peoples of all faiths.
