Seminar Description

The decision-making mind, which Kenneth tells us is the “you” the Course is addressing on nearly every page, holds all power to make the only meaningful choice–for the miracle. This mind is outside time and space and has nothing to do with the brain, which Jesus tells us cannot think (W-92.3). It is not unusual, as these mind-confounding realizations sink in, that many students feel helpless and hopeless about ever learning what Jesus is trying to teach us—mindfulness—our power to choose either guilt or forgiveness. This program will explore, through readings and discussion, the Course’s teachings on awareness, consciousness, perception, and fantasy for the purpose of helping us first to be aware that we have and are a mind, and then to become aware of our real power to choose. The many pseudo-choices the world seems to offer in the mind’s “feverish imagination” (W-101.6:4) must be recognized as all the same foolish choice for the ego thought system, leaving only one meaningful decision that can be made. And in practical terms this means learning how we can mindfully develop the awareness that allows us to choose the Holy Spirit as our Teacher and Guide, rather than the ego, as we are confronted with the many challenges of living as bodies in the world.
