What is Miracle Share?
Miracle Share is the social network for students and teachers of A Course in Miracles (ACIM). A Course in Miracles is one pathway of a “universal course” in which we are guided to remember that all that we seek for can be found within ourselves - we are guiltless, whole, and already home. Miracle Share is a place where we can talk, connect, and support one another in living the Course. Miracle Share warmly welcomes all students of ACIM, regardless of the edition of the book they study.
What does it mean to be a student versus a teacher of ACIM?
A Course in Miracles “emphasizes that to teach is to learn, so that teacher and learner are the same" (From the Manual for Teachers, "Introduction"). According to ACIM "A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one." The qualification is only that at some point the teacher has made the decision to "not see his interests as apart from someone else's" (Manual for Teachers, "Who are God's Teachers?"). Teaching within an ACIM framework also means that the Teacher of God will have completed the Workbook (Manual for Teachers, "How should the teacher of God spend his day?").
