ACIM & the World’s Spiritual Traditions: November 19, 2020
Guests: Dr. Robert Rosenthal and Dr. Roger Walsh
Many see A Course in Miracles as one of the world’s great spiritual teachings. This raises crucial questions about its relationship to other spiritual traditions.
- Are there certain doctrines and practices common to all spiritual paths, and to what extent does the Course include them?
- The Course is written in a distinctly Christian voice; what is ACIM’s relationship to modern-day Christianity?
- Dr. Bill Thetford often referred to ACIM as “the Christian Vedanta.” What did he mean by that?
- Hinduism suggests that spiritual paths can be divided into four kinds. Which one(s) does the Course fit into?
- Buddhism’s highest ideal is the Bodhisattva: a person aspiring to heal and awaken themselves so as to optimally heal and awaken others.
- Are students of A Course in Miracles potentially Bodhisattvas? Are there any spiritual practices or perspectives unique to ACIM?
