Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) April 24, 2012

“Illumination through Forgiveness: This is A Course In Miracles” is the title of John Gaffney's much anticipated workshop to be held at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI, as part of the ten-day celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14 – 23, 2012), confirmed Event Coordinator, Clare Lamanna.

Illuminate Teacher of God, John Gaffney, is known for his experiential and deeply transformative workshops, based largely on the key sentence from A Course In Miracles, “I will forgive and this will disappear.”

In his announcement of the September workshop, Gaffney states, “'It is as sure that those who hold grievances will forget who they are, as it is certain that those who forgive will remember...' is one of the most fundamental tenets of A Course in Miracles. It is time, through a direct experience of light in the action of forgiveness, for you to awaken to the reality of Universal Mind.”

Gaffney goes on to say that he “will be demonstrating directly the teachings of Jesus Christ's unearthly manuscript “A Course In Miracles,” wherein it is very plainly stated, that illumination, or escape from the bondage of space and time is the single greatest requirement of the limited human consciousness.

“What a joyous event!” added Gaffney spiritedly, “How remarkable it is, that in this gathering the true meaning of forgiveness will be revealed and experienced.”

“Here is the fundamental truth of the matter,” explained Gaffney, “Forgiveness does not make real and then attempt to pardon. Forgiveness looks beyond error to the truth that lies beyond all illusions. Allow this revolutionary idea into your thinking and then watch out! Because you have begun to open your mind to a new perspective, a new vision given you from beyond this world.”

Gaffney continued, “It could not be better said than is expressed in Lesson 193 of the Workbook of A Course In Miracles, 'All things are lessons God would have me learn,' which reads: 'This is the lesson God would have you learn: There is a way to look on everything that lets it be to you another step to Him, and to salvation of the world. To all that speaks of terror, answer thus: I will forgive, and this will disappear.

'To every apprehension, every care and every form of suffering, repeat these selfsame words. And then you hold the key that opens Heaven’s gate, and brings the Love of God the Father down to earth at last, to raise it up to Heaven. God will take this final step Himself. Do not deny the little steps He asks you take to Him.'”

International Forgiveness Week and the Weekend of Perfect Peace will be observed worldwide on September 14 – 23, 2012.

A Course In Miracles International will hold special celebration events at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI, and in affiliate centers around the world.
