A Course in Miracles is a spiritual path that helps to remove the blocks that keep one from experiencing God's Love.

As a result of practicing forgiveness with the guidance of their Internal Teacher, participants expect to experience more peace in their lives and are led to an ever-deepening understanding of the Course's principles.
