A note about the chakras- In Sanskrit the term ‘Chakra’ means wheel or disk. There are seven main chakras in the body, these energy centres run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each of these energy centres governs parts of the body and consciousness. When a centre is blocked, we may feel physically, mentally of emotionally blocked and equally if an energy centre over-whelmed the corresponding area of our body or life will feel that way too.
Meditation and Reflections on A Course In Miracles, Thursday 27th June 7.15-8.30pm at The Chapel, Billingshurst-
In this self-contained session we will be looking at Lesson 80 of the course,
‘Let me recognise my problems have been solved.’
We think we have many problems when really we only have one and this is our separation from love/God. Any situation where we believe we are wholly to blame or to credit for the outcome is a situation where we have chosen separation over collaboration.
In this evening we'll explore our relationship to our 'problems' and look to re-define them.
A Course In Miracles is a spiritual and psychological text with the core belief that in any given moment we are in one of two states, love or fear.
The ‘course’ is set out in three parts, the text, the daily lessons and the manual for teachers. According to the text ‘this is a required course’. I take that to mean that the themes in it are the themes we all encounter and strive to understand- love, loss, fear, anger, abundance, lack, forgiveness, closed heartedness, jealousy, hatred, exuberance, peace- to name just a few. The course uses traditional Christian language but is not affiliated with any religion or belief system. I have been a student of the course for seven years and fall back on its principles as a way of understanding my own limiting beliefs, behaviours and thoughts and how to overcome them.
Akin to all serious spiritual and psychological paths there is no end to the course, every year we pass though the same lesson with (we hope) deeper understanding. No matter your experience with the course, beginner or seasoned student, there is value in visiting this material if you are called to.
I will also be offering ongoing support to anyone who is committing to practice the daily lessons of the course consistently in 2019.
This session will take place at The Chapel, Unitarian Church Hall, Billingshurst, RH14 9QS.
It's £10 for the evening which includes tea and coffee and notes to take home if you wish. To book you place please click below
If you are unable to attend for any reason I will be able to refund you if it's possible to find someone to take your space.
