A Course of Love Groups
Many ACOL readers find it helpful to participate in a Sharing and Deepening Group, either in-person or via conference call or on-line. This information is provided to help you join with others in a shared purpose.
“The task of facilitators of such meetings of open hearts is to direct the reader away from ego mind and back to wholeheartedness or Christ-mind. “How do you feel?” is a more appropriate question than, “What do you think?” The sharing of experience is more appropriate than the sharing of interpretation. The sharing of process is more appropriate than the sharing of outcome. Facilitators will keep readers from attempting one correct interpretation, as the only correct interpretation is that which comes from each reader’s own internal guidance system.” A:15 If you are inclined to promote ACOL or to facilitate an ACOL group, please consider this.
The “Take Heart!” cards, a set of 180 cards with ACOL quotations, are excellent for use with groups — or by individuals. Go here to purchase.
There are many groups forming. On the map below, please ZOOM IN to see what’s available in your location. Suggestion: click on the full screen symbol in the upper right corner of the map. (Some group locations are close together geographically, so one map marker may “hide” behind another unless you ZOOM way in.)

|Kennewick, Washington||832 West 29th Place, Kennewick, WA 99337, USA||Contact: Petra Maxwell Phone: 360 608 9027 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Notes: I am forming an ACOL group. Those interested, please see the following info: I have been studying and practicing ACIM since 1992. Eventually I began to accept the difference between separation and Wholeness, aka Unity, and, amongst other things, what "a little willingness" means and what it can accomplish; To be still and allow what comes through me, rather than from me, lol. I knew nothing about Mari Perron and ACOL until about 6 months ago, when I acted on a strong urge to search for a follow up to ACIM. Googling, I came upon Mari's site. Happily I bought the book ACOL and have not stopped reading it since. Being a very private, non group oriented person, I was surprised when I suddenly felt that the most natural thing for me to do right now is to facilitate an ACOL group to deepen understanding and accepting wholeheartedness based on readings of ACOL. I am offering weekly meetings for up to 10 individuals here at my house. Therefore I am asking your As a retired mediator/restorative justice facilitator I have an idea about how to facilitate such a group in a safe, non judgemental environment. If interested, please contact me for further info. Sincerely, Petra|
