Thank you for viewing this blog.

This blog considers A Course in Miracles (ACIM, channeled by Helen Schucman and William Thetford), A Course of Love (ACOL, channeled by Mari Perron and viewed by some as a sequel to A Course in Miracles), The Way of Mastery (WOM, also known as The Christ Mind Trilogy, channeled by Jayem),  Choose Only Love (COL, channeled by Sebastian Blaksley), and Mirari (channeled by Mari Perron), plus other similar readings.

Celia Hales is the administrator and writer. I am a veteran student of A Course in Miracles, reading since 1981; and A Course of Love, reading since 2001.   I have also studied The Way of Mastery since 2016.  I am beginning my study of Choose Only Love and Mirari, which are only recently published.  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

Beginning January 19, 2018, this blog sometimes uses the complete and annotated edition of A Course in Miracles published by the Circle of Atonement in 2017.  I note in parenthesis after a quotation what edition I am using, because I also use the edition of the Foundation for Inner Peace.

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. A complete and annotated edition, based on the notebooks of Helen Schucman, has been published by the Circle of Atonement. A Course in Miracles 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.  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.

The Way of Mastery (The Christ Mind Trilogy)

The Way of Mastery is yet another work that has been receiving increased attention in recent years.  Channeled beginning in the late eighties by a man who prefers to be known as “Jayem,” The Way of Mastery is published by the Shanti Christo Foundation.  It is composed of The Way of the Heart, The Way of Transformation, and The Way of Knowing.   The work can be purchased on the Internet and also directly from the Shanti Christo Foundation.

Choose Only Love

The work is being received by Sebastian Blaksley, who lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  The book is presented as a contribution by angels, archangels, Jesus, and Mary.

This is to be a seven-volume series, three volumes of which have now been published.  The publisher is Take Heart Publications.  Available on Amazon, Barnesandnoble.com, and DeVorss Publications in print and e-book.

Reading the passages slowly and meditatively, part of a devotional, seems to me to be best.



Mirari was received by Mari Perron from Mary of Nazareth.  The first of three books in the series has now been published in 2020.   Mirari is available on Amazon.

This book builds on an idea first expressed in A Course of Love, that the feminine way of being will become ever more important as more and more people adopt the way of Mary, the way of being.  The feminine face of God will become ever more noticed.

Thank you for your visits.
