    Story

    Okay, I love Tolle, Dyer, Chodron, Chopra, Ruiz, Byron Katie, and many others, and that won't change. But for the clearest explanation of how to disregard that 'nut' running commentary in my head, this book wins hands down. It is funny, I mean oh so, 'oh my goodness of course' belly laugh funny, and sensible and simple. I love simple. If you really want to understand who 'you' are...the real you behind the insanity, this is a great book. I found the narrator to be fine, not perfect but I had no problem listening to him. Listened all the way through first day and started over.

    Story

    I actually didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I am, when I listened to the narration, I was not pleased with the voice. I thought it dry and unenthusiastic. But 10 hours in, I can say Mr. Stewart was an excellent choice. His pacing is excellent, his enunciation clear.

    The Course can be daunting, and I truly believe being able to listen as well as read will be helpful to any serious Course student.

    A Course in Miracles, also known as "the Course" or ACIM, was scribed by Dr. Helen Schucman. It is a self-study course that aims to assist listeners, readers, and students in achieving spiritual transformation. Book 1: Text is largely theoretical, and sets forth the concepts on which the Course's thought system is based. Its ideas contain the foundation for the lessons in Book 2, the Workbook for Students.

  • "lovely but abridged"

    Overall

    I loved the other Don Miguel Ruiz audios and they are transforming me... but I would not have ordered this one had I realized it was abridged. The others are not, so I didn't even check. With that said, I still gleaned a lot from the book but wanted to mention the abridgement in case that is important to other potential listeners.

    You will feel much more in touch with your real 'Self' after listening to Toltec wisdom.
