The Practice of the Holy Instant: A Course in Miracles often refers to the "holy instant." But what is this holy instant? And how can we experience it? This illustration offers a simple overview.
Undoing the Lacking/Getting Cycle: When we feel disconnected from God's Love, our tendency is to search externally for ways to be "filled up." But the only real solution is to look within.
Correcting the Separation Perception: In this world, it's easy to lose sight of our spiritual connection. We often see each other as disconnected entities. But we can learn to "look past" that perception, and focus on our spiritual union.

Worksheets by Dan Joseph
Inner Guidance: In this worksheet, you list out your perceptions, plans, and desires regarding a particular issue. Then you become willing to release those perceptions, plans, and desires in order to make room for divine guidance.
Flip-Side Forgiveness: A Course in Miracles teaches that as we see other people, we will see ourselves. In this worksheet, you take a step toward self-forgiveness by forgiving someone else. Or you move toward forgiving someone else by forgiving yourself.
The Three Step Process: This worksheet incorporates the "three step process" from Dan Joseph's Inner Healing. In this process, you take ownership of your feelings and perceptions. Then you become willing to exchange them for a more loving perspective.
Reversing the Search: In Reversing the Search, you begin by listing out a worldly thing that you want. Then you identify the inner experience that you associate with that worldly thing. Finally, you open directly to that experience, and become willing to share it.
