This programme covers Volume I of The Solid Foundation of A Course in Miracles in learning the basic steps in expressing love to other people. Its materials include a reading schedule, topic papers to go with each week’s reading, recordings of weekly video sessions, and guided activities and practice for inner exploration.
There are no prerequisites for taking this programme. However, improved benefits will be achieved the greater your self-honesty and the more you take each activity and practice personally. An attitude of determination, certainty, and expectancy of substantial results will also greatly aid your learning.
The Solid Foundation Volume I: Learning goals
- To appreciate why The Solid Foundation is necessary.
- To strengthen our commitment to studying A Course in Miracles.
- To let go of our belief that we lack the intelligence to understand the Course.
- To apply the ideas and the Course’s means for a transformed experience of union and communication.
A suggested reading schedule is provided for each week, so that you can complete Volume I, which covers Chapter One of the Text of A Course in Miracles, in eight weeks plus a practice week. However, you can go slower than this if you prefer. We would not recommend going any faster, as we will be examining the material in great detail, and giving ourselves time to apply the ideas and suggestions to our self.
Online learning system
The intention is that a chapter of The Solid Foundation is completed each week. The online learning system, therefore, provides access to the subsequent chapters on a weekly schedule. In other words, you cannot gain access to the week beyond your current one until the due date.
The system forces you to mark a topic paper as complete before moving onto the next one. If you want to get to a later topic or practice before you read a particular topic, just mark it complete and you will have access to later material within that week’s schedule. However, please do remember to go back and read the missed topic paper later.
