What is A Course in Miracles?
A Course in Miracles® is a 500,000 word synthesis of the Universal Truths which underpin the world's great religions and philosophies. It contains 365 lessons which facilitate the practical application of these Truths to daily life. It is a self-study manual of spiritual psychotherapy, a course in mind training, how to know yourself, self-healing.

The aims of A Course in Miracles
A Course in Miracles aims at producing specific shifts in perception and conceptual thinking and shows how these shifts can lead to individual happiness and peace and will eventually lead to the salvation of the world and to our return to Heaven, which we have never truly left.

What does A Course in Miracles teach?

Course students don't learn to perform spectacular physical miracles. They learn to listen to their internal teacher - the Holy Spirit - the Voice for God. They learn to recognise the inner miracles of the mind that are performed, through themselves, by God's power.

The Course has profoundly affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Who wrote A Course in Miracles?

The book was scribed from an 'inner dictation' (Jesuits call this ‘locution’) between 1965 and 1972, by Dr Helen Schucman, Associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University. The text implies that Jesus is the author, but you must make up your own mind about this!

How does it relate to the Bible?
The teachings of A Course in Miracles harmonise well with the teachings of Jesus, as expressed in the Gospels, but they are more explicit and much more comprehensive. There are over 1000 references to the Old and New Testaments. But there are important differences from the teachings of the orthodox Christian Church.

What is its history?
A Course in Miracles was first published in the USA in 1975. The British edition of the Course was launched in May 1985, in the Jerusalem Chamber of Westminster Abbey, at the invitation of Lilian Carpenter, wife of the then Dean of Westminster. It is being translated into fourteen languages.

What is the connection between a Course in Miracles and Overton Studios Trust?
Overton Studios Trust is a UK registered charity which produces integrated, interdependent book+videotape sets which explore holistic healing within a Christian context. Our ideas are eclectic and garnered from a wide range of sources, but Course principles remain at the heart of our endeavours.

Our purpose is to encourage peace-of-mind in the viewer and thus to promote healing, both mental and physical. Even the orthodox medical profession has now demonstrated that peace-of-mind strengthens the immune system and promotes physical repair of the body.


"You are not sick and you cannot die, but you can confuse yourself with things that do"

"I am not a body - I am free - To be as God created me"
