Relationships - Our Path Home.
- finding peace and growth in the mirror of relationships 
A Course in Miracles Zoom workshop
In English with German translation

You can enrol for all or some of the 3 parts
Zoom allows for questions, sharings, 
meeting in virtual rooms for pair exercises and sharings.

By Michael Dawson

"When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter.
As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. 
As you think of him you will think of yourself. 
Never forget this, for in him  you will find yourself or lose yourself." 
from A Course in Miracles T-8.III.4.

Our relationships can become our daily classroom of forgiveness. "Relationships" does not just refer to our partners but everyone we meet. How we react to our family, colleagues, strangers, animals, people in the media mirrors what is contained in our minds. Daily we walk around in a hall of mirrors and when we lose our peace we are being shown something unhealed, unforgiven in our minds. 

The Course seeks to take our difficult relationships and change their direction towards the goal of holy relationships in which we practice honesty and forgiveness.

As we learn to look at ourselves and others without judgement (forgiveness) we gradually remove the obstacles to the love and peace within us. Judgement is gradually replaced by compassion, and instead of separation, true acceptance, friendship and genuine intimacy become possible.

The workshop will contain exercises to help understand and heal painful dynamics found in ego-based relationships, allowing our natural state of peace and joy to be uncovered. 

(No previous knowledge of the book A Course in Miracles is required.)

Beziehungen - Unser Weg nach Hause. 

- Frieden finden und Wachstum erleben im Spiegel von Beziehungen - Ein Seminar basierend auf „Ein Kurs in Wundern“ 

"Wenn du jemandem begegnest, so erinnere dich daran, dass es eine heilige Begegnung ist.
Wie du ihn siehst, wirst du dich selber sehen. Wie du ihn behandelst, wirst du dich selbst behandeln. Wie du über ihn denkst, wirst du über dich selbst denken. Vergiss dies nie, denn in ihm wirst du dich selbst finden oder verlieren."
Ein Kurs in Wundern T-8.III.4. 

Unsere Beziehungen können zu unserem täglichen Klassenzimmer der Vergebung werden. "Beziehungen" bezieht sich nicht nur auf unsere Partner, sondern auf jeden, dem wir begegnen. Wie wir auf unsere Familie, Kollegen, Fremde, Tiere, Menschen in den Medien reagieren, spiegelt das wider, was in unserem Verstand enthalten ist. Täglich laufen wir in einem Spiegelkabinett herum, und wenn wir unseren Frieden verlieren, wird uns etwas gezeigt, das in unserem Geist noch nicht geheilt, noch nicht vergeben ist. 

Der Kurs zielt darauf ab, unsere schwierigen Beziehungen in eine Richtung zu lenken, die zu heiligen Beziehungen führt, in denen wir Ehrlichkeit und Vergebung praktizieren. 

Wenn wir lernen, uns selbst und andere ohne Verurteilung (Vergebung) zu betrachten, beseitigen wir allmählich die Hindernisse, die der Liebe und dem Frieden in uns im Wege stehen. An die Stelle des Urteils tritt allmählich Mitgefühl, und anstelle von Trennung werden wahre Akzeptanz, Freundschaft und echte Intimität möglich. 

Der Workshop enthält Übungen, die helfen, schmerzhafte Dynamiken in Ego-Beziehungen zu verstehen und zu heilen, so dass unser natürlicher Zustand von Frieden und Freude sichtbar werden kann.

Requirements for Awakening
- from the perspective of A Course in Miracles

Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. 
The light is in them now. Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all. 
ACIM Lesson 188

To awaken to our spiritual reality - an eternal, formless  spirit - ACIM emphasises  the following:

•Desire Awakening Above All
The Fear of Redemption
Don't get in its way
I Do Not Know The Way To You
Realise You Know Nothing Of Importance.
Do Not Prepare Yourself.
Our Job.
I Need Do Nothing.
Ladder of Trust

Exercises will be used to apply forgiveness and will call on guidance for the problems in our minds, the only place true healing can occur.

No knowledge of A Course in Miracles is required.
The workshop will be in English with German translation.


2-Tages-Seminar: Voraussetzungen für das Erwachen - aus der Perspektive von EIN KURS IN WUNDERN

Warum auf den Himmel warten? Diejenigen, die das Licht suchen, verschließen nur ihre Augen. Das Licht ist jetzt in ihnen. Die Erleuchtung ist nur ein Erkennen, überhaupt keine Veränderung. EKiW-Lektion 188

Um zu unserer spirituellen Realität - einem ewigen, formlosen Geist - zu erwachen, betont EKiW das Folgende:

  -Erwachen über alles begehren
-Die Angst vor der Erlösung
-Stell dich ihr nicht in den Weg
-Ich kenne den Weg zu dir nicht
-Erkenne, dass du nichts Wichtiges weißt.
-Vorbereiten Sie sich nicht selbst.
-Unser Job.
-Ich brauche nichts zu tun.
-Leiter des Vertrauens

Mit Hilfe von Übungen werden wir Vergebung anwenden und die Führung für die Probleme in unserem Geist anrufen, dem einzigen Ort, an dem wahre Heilung stattfinden kann.

Es sind keine Kenntnisse von EIN KURS IN WUNDERN erforderlich.
Der Workshop findet in englischer Sprache mit deutscher Übersetzung statt.

Healing Ourselves and Others

from the perspective of A Course in Miracles
- Michael Dawson -

Health Is Inner Peace....Health is the result of relinquishing all attempts to use the body lovelessly. ACIM

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent him who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or do, 
because he who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever he wishes 
knowing he goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let him teach me to heal.
T-2.V.18:2-6   A Course in Miracles


Using the spiritual path of A Course in Miracles and its supplement - Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice - we will explore what true healing is: the return to our awareness of our spiritual identity. 

The cause of illness lies in the mind and not the body. By returning our awareness to the mind and forgiving the thought forms of judgement, attack and condemnation of ourselves and others we can return to a state of inner peace. The body will then return to a state of health.

To heal others, whether as a friend or as a psychotherapist, we need to learn to step aside and be guided in what to say and do . We need to remember “The Holy Spirit is the only Therapist.”

Practical exercises will be used to help understand the ego and its mechanisms of denial and projection. We will practise forgiveness and healing and turning within for guidance.

Topics also included:

Healing ourselves
• Reasons for Sickness
• Special Hate and Love relationships
• The Process of Illness
• How is Healing Accomplished
• Forgiveness
• Resistance to healing

Healing others (teachings for everyone who desires to relieve suffering in others)
• The A Course in Miracles approach to healing others
• The differences between the healed and unhealed healer 
• Purpose of Psychotherapy
• The Process of Psychotherapy
• Role of the Psychotherapist

An overview of the Course's metaphysical, psychological and spiritual teachings especially in regard to healing of the mind, body and relationships will be covered. 
No previous knowledge of the book A Course in Miracles is required.
