The Message of A Course
In the mid-1970s A Course in Miracles
was published. It is a self-study course designed
to help you undo your conscious and unconscious
beliefs that you are separate from God so that
you can return to your natural State of Boundless
Love, Peace, and Joy.
Since then it has become the guide
for over a million people worldwide who have experienced
a loving transformation to a more peaceful life.
But the Course, though beautifully written, is
in dense and difficult figurative language that
can be hard to understand. It can take many years
to pierce through how it says what it says to
understand its loving means for returning to an
awareness of your Eternal Oneness with God.
The Message of A Course in Miracles
is a paragraph-by-paragraph translation of the
Course into plain, everyday language, which brings
its message to the surface so that you can attain
a deeper understanding of it faster. It is for
anyone seeking a simple and clear means for attaining
lasting inner peace.

Free from OCD
Most children with obsessive-compulsive
disorder (OCD) are diagnosed between the ages
of ten and twelve-right on the cusp of their adolescent
years. Yet, until now, there have been no resources

teens and parents work together to assess the
severity of the symptoms and offer teens cognitive
behavioural skills to overcome them. Teen readers
learn essential information about the biology
and dynamics of OCD, then discover a multitude
of skills for moving beyond the most common types

fear of harm to self or family, fear of germs
or diseases, fearing of losing something valuable,

prevention exercises are included to help teens
with OCD make dramatic gains in symptom management

From Workplace to Playspace
From Workplace to Playspace is about
visionary, courageous, innovative, and persistent
organizations that challenge long-held preconceptions
about the incompatibility of workplace and playspace.

and with wide-ranging missions are discovering

create every day at work if they are to think
creatively, question old assumptions, respond
effectively to the unexpected, and engage all
to work at the top of their talent.
Filled with case examples from such
organizations as Learning Curve International,
Google, Chicago Public Schools, Umpqua Bank, and
Threadless, the author provides both the conceptual
framework and the principles to guide practitioners
to create playspace for innovating, learning and
changing in their organizations.
