Our “Integrating ACIM” Sunday Session is a time of listening and reflection. We join in silent communion with the Holy Spirit during our opening 20-minute meditation. We then listen to the topic being presented by Revs. Deb or Paul Phelps (or Guest Speaker). After the Teaching Message, we enter into our Sharing Circle. In the Circle, we practice self-reflection by tuning in to how we can apply the concepts in our daily lives and listen to how others are doing the same. At times, Reflection Questions are given for this purpose. The Sharing Circle allows us to share as we reflect on the given topic.

Anyone is welcome to join our Sharing Circle, you do not need to be present at our Madison, Wisconsin center to participate. We offer video conferencing and a phone-in option. See below for details.

Simple Guidelines 

  • The Sharing Circle allows us to come together in equality and helps to build a sense of ‘community’.
  • The facilitator will begin the sharing and then will move clockwise around the circle.
  • You may pass on your turn if you do not feel guided to speak.
  • When sharing, take responsibility for yourself. This is your opportunity to speak your truth, be heard and express who you are.
  • Be open. There is always something to learn or see anew.
  • Focus your attention on the person sharing.
  • Release the need to evaluate, judge, compare or offer advice.
  • Be engaged with the speaker. Refrain from cross talk or interrupting when someone is sharing.
  • When you are complete in your sharing, indicate that you are finished by saying “I’m done” or something similar so the next person in the circle may take their turn.
  • We honor confidentiality of what is shared here today.

To join our Sunday Sharing Circle, you must register each week in advance of the Sunday session. Please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Early Sunday morning we will email the link to the Sharing Circle conference room.

******************

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
