Thank you for viewing this blog.

This blog considers A Course in Miracles (ACIM, channeled by Helen Schucman and William Thetford), and A Course of Love (ACOL, channeled by Mari Perron and viewed by some as a sequel to A Course in Miracles), and similar readings.

Celia Hales is the administrator and writer. I am a veteran student of A Course in Miracles, with more than 30 years of study; and A Course of Love, with more than 10 years of study. A former religion librarian at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities, I now live with my husband in Oxford, Mississippi.

A Course in Miracles

A Course in Miracles was first published in 1975, and a second edition came out in 1992. It was co-scribed by Helen Schucman and William (Bill) Thetford. There are three parts to the Course: a textbook, a workbook, and a manual for teachers. There is no prescribed order in which the parts must be read. A Course in Miracles is published by the Foundation for Inner Peace, and the Course is widely available in book stores internationally and on the Internet. It has been translated into a number of languages.

The notations to the Course for earlier postings are given as follows: T=Text, WB=Workbook, M=Manual. There are two supplementary readings, referenced as follows: PPP=Psychotherapy, SP=The Song of Prayer. The standard notations are frequently used instead.

A Course of Love

One reading of a similar nature is A Course of Love (c2014 in the combined edition, originally published 2001), channeled by Mari Perron and viewed by some to be a sequel to A Course in Miracles. Its publisher is Take Heart Publications, available on the Internet and in bookstores nationwide. This 3-in-1 volume should be read in order: A Course of Love (original volume); the Treatises of A Course of Love; and the Dialogues: Coming to Voice.


Online Books by Celia Hales



This book has short reflections that were inspired by A Course in Miracles. Because this book is based on my journal, it is more personally written than anything in “Miracles Each Day” The book identifies the relationship of self to Self, self to others, and self to God. The parts are described as follows: (1) identification of the self; (2) learning through relationships; and (3) returning to our Source.

All book chapters can be accessed individually through a sidebar that gives the chapter titles.



This book, also based on A Course in Miracles, gives a personal interpretation of ACIM that concentrates, in three parts, on the following: (1) the ego as defined by ACIM, (2) special vs. holy relationships, and (3) guidance through the Holy Spirit.

All book chapters can be accessed individually through a sidebar that gives the chapter titles.
