Free “A Course in Miracles” Event December 2

November 27th, 2017

Drake University in Des Moines hosts a program called The Comparison Project, which I think is one of the best things about this very fine university. The purpose is to introduce people to different faith and religious teachings so we can all learn from one another.

Each year they offer a lecture series and special events around a particular theme, and this year’s theme is Miracles.

As part of the series, we’re presenting a free half-day conference about A Course in Miracles at Drake December 2, and I really encourage you to attend. It’s free and open to the public, and it’ll give you several key teachings from the Course that you can put to use in your own life.

Here’s the info from The Comparison Project website, which gives all the details. It’ll be a great way to bring some Miracles into your holiday season, with opportunities to learn about creating peace and harmony in every part of your life. Hope to see you there!

12/2 Finding Peace through A Course in Miracles

Debra Landwehr Engle
Author of The Only Little Prayer You Need
With Randy Adams, Annabelle Nesbit and Dr. JoAnn Tully

Saturday, December 2, 9 a.m. to noon (registration at 8:30)
Meredith Hall, Drake University

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) includes a text, workbook and manual that have been described as “spiritual psychotherapy.” Designed as a self-study course, the Course was first published in 1975, has been translated into more than two dozen languages and is studied worldwide.

While the Course uses Christian language, it is metaphysical and ecumenical in nature. It teaches that we have two minds: one based in fear and the other based in love. By consciously choosing love, we undo guilt and heal our relationships with ourselves and others.

This half-day conference will explore key teachings of the Course, including healing the mind and body, dealing with anger and attack, choosing love over fear and gaining a new perspective on life events by making small changes in your thinking.

The event will include an introduction to the Course, breakout sessions and a plenary Q&A with the conference leaders and ACIM students.

Debra Landwehr Engle has studied A Course in Miracles for more than 30 years. She is the author of The Only Little Prayer You Need, which is based on Course principles and has been translated into four languages. Deb leads A Course in Miracles classes, workshops and study groups in person and online, and she offers one-on-one mentoring based on ACIM.

Randy Adams has studied A Course in Miracles since 1995. He owns his own accounting and tax preparation business and teaches classes to other tax preparers. Randy believes that sharing kindness and joy is a simple and effective way to extend the ACIM message.

Annabelle Nesbit is an ordained interfaith minister and student/teacher of A Course in Miracles. Twenty-five years ago, she began a committed meditation practice, which inspired a life of learning about and practicing spiritual philosophies. She shares the gifts of the Course through a weekly ACIM group.

Dr. JoAnn Tully, D.C., uses principles from A Course in Miracles to help her clients release negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs that are sabotaging their energy, health and life. She works with clients who have been struggling with chronic illness, unexplained or unresolved health issues, or who are dealing with everyday fatigue and overwhelm.

If you want to write a book that matters…

October 4th, 2017

Yesterday I spoke with a woman in Hawaii. She called because she’s reading The Only Little Prayer You Need, and she wanted to let me know how much she’s enjoying it.

That meant the world to me—not only because she took the time to call, but because it tells me that Spirit keeps spreading the book’s message wherever it’s supposed to go.

It’s like witnessing another light turning on. And that’s so important in a world that needs all the light it can get right now.

That’s what writing a book does. It reflects the light in you so you can share it with people you’ll never even meet.

And that’s why I developed two new writing courses to help you write a book that matters—one that can make a difference in the world.

I love these courses for a lot of reasons, and I think you will, too:

  • They’re totally self-paced. You can download all the modules and work through them on your own schedule. And all the materials are yours to keep.
  • They include my best advice on writing a book. These are the tools and techniques I teach at writing retreats and in one-on-one coaching, and now they’re yours to use as you develop your message.
  • They give you spiritual support as you write. Each module includes a guided visualization to help you receive wisdom and guidance and grow into your role as a writer.
  • You can preview the first module at no charge. Just click on the Free Preview button and start today.

If you’ve felt a call to write a book, this is your opportunity to take it from start to finish, with help every step of the way.

We need your voice, your message, and your light.

P.S. One of the courses is for starting your book, the other is for finishing it. Sign up for both courses together and get a 25% discount….plus six bonuses, too!

Let’s Meet in Maine!

July 21st, 2017

Sometimes it takes a little nudge to do what you really want to do.

So here’s that nudge:)

Come to Maine with me August 26-29 for a retreat that will get you away from the 24-hour news cycle and your never-ending To Do list and give you the break you deserve.

It’s called Only Love, which pretty much describes what you’ll experience.

In leading the retreat, I promise to create a safe and gentle environment for you. And at the same time, I’ll share some of the most life-changing principles from A Course in Miracles and The Only Little Prayer You Need so you can come home with practical tools you can use every day.

Plus, if you need some one-on-one time to talk through an issue in your life and gain a new perspective, I’ll meet you in the gardens or over a meal. That’s the kind of individual mentoring I can’t always provide at a retreat. But I’ll be there for one reason. And that reason is you.

That’s why you’ll probably experience lots of ah-ha moments.

They might happen when I’m leading you through a visualization … or we’re talking about your unique gifts … or you’re taking a walk along the beach … or you’re doing some journaling on the porch at the retreat center (think quintessential New England charm).

It’s the kind of retreat that, when you head home, you think, “Wow! I wasn’t gone that long. How did my life get so much better?”

It got better, of course, because you shifted. Remembered who you are. Opened your heart. Found new ways to have loving relationships. Let go of the stress and old wounds.

And experienced only love.

If you’re feeling ready for a deep rest, a greater connection with Spirit and something different in your life, this is the opening you’ve been waiting for.

If you have any questions about it, please get in touch. I’d love to talk through it with you.

Or you can go to the Ferry Beach Retreat Center site to register. There are lots of options for accommodations, which makes it really affordable.

Just picture it: Late summer on the beach in Maine, feeling the love.

I can see you there. Hope you can, too.
