Carry your lessons with you on your Android phone or tablet!
Workbook for Students from A Course in Miracles now available on over 3,953 Android devices.
This app allows students and readers of A Course in Miracles (“the Course”) convenient access to their 365 daily lessons from its Workbook. While the app contains the complete Workbook for Students, it represents only part of the Course, a unique self-study metaphysical thought system. The Course’s teaching is based on the practice of forgiveness as the key to inner peace and the remembrance of God.
Published in one volume, A Course in Miracles consists of three separate sections: Text, Workbook for Students and Manual for Teachers. The Text of the Course sets forth the theoretical concepts of the Course's thought system and thus provides the necessary framework to clarify the meaning of the Workbook exercises. It is therefore important to undertake the lessons in this app in conjunction with the writings within A Course in Miracles.
A Course in Miracles was received in its entirety over a period of seven years by psychologist Dr. Helen Schucman through an inspired process she described as scribing. It was first published by the Foundation for Inner Peace in 1976.
The Workbook for Students, contained in this app, includes 365 lessons which are designed to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world. As stated in the Introduction to the Workbook: “The exercises are very simple. They do not require a great deal of time, and it does not matter where you do them. They need no preparation.” You are asked only not to undertake to do more than one exercise a day. You might however choose to remain with a particularly appealing lesson for more than one day.
