Love waits on welcome, not on time, and the real world is but your welcome of what always was. Therefore the call of joy is in it, and your glad response is your awakening to what you have not lost.
As those who attended our retreat of the same name in March know, this is powerful and enriching material that will be presented in this class.
We awaken to joy by awakening to the good within ourselves. We don’t try hard to be joyful or happy, we allow our experience to be what it is while opening to the possibility of joy.
As you learn to be present in your life, to love yourself and others, to be kind to yourself in difficult times, to let go of what is not needed, to knowing blamelessness, and to allow compassion and gratefulness, all these will naturally lead to the Light of Joy dawning within.
I will be incorporating A Course in Miracles along with some material from an insightful book on mindfulness called: Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness.
Please note: The book is not necessary to attend the class as I will be sharing excerpts from the book that are in alignment with ACIM.
Together in this class, we will use ACIM readings, material from the book, visualizations, meditation, homework assignments, journaling, and weekly class sharing.
Attend via video conferencing or our self-study option.
Please note this is a 10-week class which is a longer commitment than our typical 6-week classes.

IMPORTANT NOTE — Be aware that there are daily assignments given in this class to assist you in deepening your study and practical application of the topic presented. These can be meditations, exercises, practices and ACIM readings. If you wish to sign up for the live sessions, be sure you are able to set aside a time each day to complete the assignments as they are the topic of discussion in each session in the breakout groups with other students. These assignments are designed to help you to deepen your study and practice.
SELF-STUDY — If you can’t make the class at the day and time when it is scheduled, there is also available a self-study class with the recordings from Rev. Deb’s teaching along with other handouts, videos, and materials. You can register below and you will be notified when the self-study class is available to you online. Additionally, you will have available to you a one-hour private session with Rev. Deb to discuss the class topic at any point during the six weeks.
If you opt for the self-study version, you will be given details when the first class recording is available to you online.
NOTE: The video conferencing is private. It is not broadcast. Only those in attendance are part of the video conference call. Recordings of the full class session are made for student’s private use (i.e. if student misses a class).
