ACIMblog bulletin for January 2013:
New websites for students of ACIM
Check out 3 newly updated websites by avid and insightful students/teachers of ACIM, Susan Dugan and Lyn Corona. Susan’s Forays In Forgiveness blog is a treasure-trove of interviews (with Kenneth Wapnick and Gary Renard), audio and superb weekly posts, each quickly leading from her highly relatable personal forgiveness classroom to the generalized insights from the Inner Teacher of Kindness we all share. Lyn Corona, also deeply inspired by Kenneth Wapnick’s insight’s about ACIM, established the School of Reason, and also shares additional eloquent wisdom on her personal blog, Becoming Learners Together. All highly recommended! (If you would like help with an ACIM (or related) website, please contact me, since I love creating, updating and maintaining sites like these. 🙂
New daily post updates option
I just added a way to quickly and easily subscribe to automated post updates to the ACIMblog.com website. Just enter your email below where it says the “ACIMblog.com post updates by email” on the upper right hand corner of any page, and click the “Subscribe” button. You’ll automatically get an email containing any new posts to ACIMblog.com made the previous day. Of course, if you prefer just getting one email a month, the bulletin you’re reading now (if you’re reading this in your email program) will still continue to provide that service.

New class in Boulder Colorado by Doug Sparks
Topic: Obstacles to Peace
When: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 till 12:00 – February 5 through March 26, 2013; also Tuesday evenings, 6:30 till 8:30 – February 5 through March 26, 2013
Where: Doug’s home in Boulder – (will give directions)
Register: Please call Nieca Sparks: 303-570-7737 or email nsparks indra com
Details: This eight week series will focus on the very core of the thought system of A Course In Miracles. The subsections contained within the “Obstacles to Peace” explore all the most important themes in this Course. They thus lay bare the entirety of the ego’s defensive strategy and its shabby repertoire of tricks. Our purpose will be to learn to use forgiveness as the means for undoing our attraction to these mistakes.
Doug Sparks has been a student of Ken Wapnick since the early days of ACIM; here’s an audio of a presentation entitled “A Garden Ephipany” he gave last year at Rocky Mountain Miracle Center (RMMC).
Online ACIM study groups and presentations
“Spiritual Bypassing” was the topic of a hangout session just recorded in a live (google+) ACIM hangout today; the 7 of us had a lively conversation about the linked article and how we can use everything that arises (including catching our resistance to shift our identity from special interests to shared interests, thus bypassing the (ego’s) bypass; details here soon.
Kenneth Bok, José Lorenzo Rodríguez, Michael Ordoña, Maureen Muldoon, several others (including a new group forming in Germany) and myself have been collaborating and expanding online (Google+) ACIM Hangout study groups and meetings; here’s a link to the ACIMExplained YouTube Channel (which has LOTS of wonderful videos) including weekly Saturday presentations/meetings. Enjoy, and join in if you feel inspired to share in the fun. Check back regularly on the calendar of upcoming online ACIM Hangouts for new events to participate ‘live’ in, and/or watch later.
New additions to the “Gary and Cindy” (Gary Renard and Cindy Lora-Renard) section of ACIMblog Favorites
The ACIMblog Favorites (Amazon “aStore”) now has new additions, resulting in a more complete selection of books, Kindle versions of Gary’s books (and related ones), audios by Gary, plus solo music by Cindy and audio programs by Cindy and Gary together and video titles by, or including Gary.
While we’re on the subject of ACIM-related books, videos, audios, Kindle and other media, I’ve recently added lots of new ACIM titles on the Amazon ACIMblog Favorites page and will keep adding more.
If there are books, videos, audios or Kindle selections you recommend, but don’t see here, please let me know what you find truly helpful so I can add them to the lists.
New reviews of The Geometry Code
Thanks to Susan Dugan, Mike Lemieux, and Marianne O’Sheeran for their new, kind reviews of The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation. Yet another fellow author, Jonathan Joshua, wrote the first review – Thanks, Jonathan! – last year. Huge thanks also to Gary Renard, Cindy-Lora Renard and Roberta Grace for adding The Geometry Code book (with a Foreward by Gary) to the “Gary recommends” book list on Gary’s website.
The Kindle version of the book became available last September. Many thanks to all who have encouraged me to complete it, and all your support … so very appreciated! 🙂 BTW, if you prefer a ‘treeware’ (paperback) version, you can order it here. Here are abundant details about the book – which really IS an ACIM-studies book, despite the prominent appearance of the word ‘geometry’ in the title.
BTW, even if you don’t have a Kindle, there are lots of other platforms you can read the Kindle version (or any Kindle book) on, including smartphones such as iPhone and iTouch, Android, Windows Phone 7, Blackberry, Windows and Macintosh computers, and tablets like iPad and Android tablet. Enjoy! 🙂
Recent Radio/Webcast Interviews/Podcasts/Videos
The GeometryCode Events page has upcoming, ongoing, and past radio and internet interviews, presentations, and more. (The majority of the content I share in these events is about non-dual metaphysics, and becoming ever more so.)
Among the recent past interviews I’ve participated in (with free audio archives online that you can listen to) are:
- Your Soul Guidance show interview by Saskia Roell. Click here to listen to a replay of the interview.
- A second interview by Wendy Joy on her Bringing the Light Internet Talk Radio show.
- Awakening in Austin Internet Talk Radio show; interview by Sara Pencil Blumenfeld, Wed., 18 July 2012 9-9:30 AM MDT on Blog Talk Radio
- Kenneth Bok of ACIMexplained.com recorded a fun interview with me in video split-screen format on 17Jul2012
- Awakening to Conscious Co-Creation: interview by Peter Tongue
- New Realities: internet/radio interview by Alan Steinfeld
… and many more on the Events page.
I always enjoy talking about the non-dual Metaphysics, Psychology, Symbolism, Philosophy and more contained within the book “The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation” which is available here.
