A Course of Love Online Group

If you would like to connect with other readers online, there are A Course of Love study groups that gather via Zoom Videoconferencing or via telephone.

What is Zoom Videoconferencing? Zoom is an easy-to-use online videoconference application that features high quality video, audio, and screen-sharing capabilities, resulting in an experience that comes close to an in-person meeting. You have the option to enable your camera, if you would like to be seen by other participants, or keep it off. You can join a Zoom meeting via computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) or mobile device (Android, iOS or BlackBerry).

Click the YouTube icon below to watch a sample session of a Zoom Group, with an introductory dialogue between a group facilitator and Mari Perron about their experiences with participating in online groups.
