A Course in Miracles - A unique, universal, self-study spiritual thought system that teaches that the way to Love and Inner Peace is through Forgiveness.  As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.  The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy.  A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are "many thousands." Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality.  A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.
