Publisher's Summary

Dr. Hawkins elaborates on his personal growth, physical challenges, and the different aspects of self-healing available through the power of A Course in Miracles. He shares his personal experience with alcohol and his journey "out of hell". Elaborating on how we are subject to only what we hold in mind, he takes us through his fascinating journey of self-healing. "Ultimately," he says, "the Course leads us to a deep joy and peace in understanding that we are not separate. We are truly one and have always been so. From top to bottom, there is nothing that we can’t change by paying attention to the concepts of the Course."

Poor quality audio but Life Transforming Message

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I enjoyed this - recorded at an AA conference -- 1983? Other speakers too.

What other book might you compare Giving Up Illness Through 'A Course in Miracles' to and why?

Disappearance of Universe

Would you be willing to try another one of David R. Hawkins’s performances?

Yes, I am getting them all.

Could you see Giving Up Illness Through 'A Course in Miracles' being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Sure, this would be wonderful if the audio quality would be better. How about Alan Rickman and Michael Caine?

Any additional comments?

Some parts are very difficult to hear. This is like a trip back to 1983, lots of comments based on events happening at the time.

A Tie for My Favorite

What made the experience of listening to Giving Up Illness Through 'A Course in Miracles' the most enjoyable?

It's not a book, just some recorded seminars

Not what I expected! Audio quality is very poor. However, the content, especially the first 2/3 - 3/4 is outstanding. It made up for the poor quality.

Pros and Cons

I did not like Hawkin's reading of Power vs Force because he is just reading, and the monotone delivery made it hard to listen and stay focused. In this book, however, he speaks to a group, and this is where he really shines. There is a lot of great material here, some familiar ideas and events also given in his other books but spiritual gold and well worth repeating. Weaknesses of the book: 1) I couldn't hear any of the questions his audience asked, though I don't think too much was lost because the answers he gives are comprehensive. 2) The last forty minutes or so are taken by another person speaking and I did not find this inspiring or helpful. Still, I do recommend the book to anyone with an interest in ACIM or in Hawkin's work.

Really bad sound quality

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am a big fan of Hawkins and a course in miracles. The sound quality of this program is just bad. I could not understand any of the questions and it was difficult to understand the material because of quality issues

What other book might you compare Giving Up Illness Through 'A Course in Miracles' to and why?

NA

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David R. Hawkins MD?

There is no other person who should narrator this program

I'm not aware of print version of this recorded workshop

amazing story, first hand experiences/understanding based on ACIM principles

Did David R. Hawkins MD do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

loved Dr. Hawkins genuine self and the message he shares from experience

Good material

Good material but bad audio quality. If you hear this book for the first time and don't know what is about it's hard to follow due to the bad recording quality it has. I recommend you try another one first or look for another with better sound

Interesting content but poor sound quality

What would have made Giving Up Illness Through 'A Course in Miracles' better?

This was a recording of a talk to an audience and the sound quality was poor. I couldn't hear a lot of the questions and gave up before the end.

What did you like best about this story?

The content of the talk was extremely interesting. I wish Dr Hawkins would make a studio recording of this talk.

Did David R. Hawkins do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

It was a factual talk- not fiction.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I thought the subject matter was inspiring. But the sound quality was disappointing.

Any additional comments?

If Dr Hawkins did studio recordings of his talks, I would be very interested in listening to them, but this format didn't work for me.
