The Foundation for the Awakening Mind is established for the purpose of teaching and learning true forgiveness as taught in A Course In Miracles (ACIM), laying aside all grievances, and living and extending Inner Peace. First and foremost, we shall encourage prayer and meditation and the laying aside of judgment as the means of achieving the learning goal and experiencing the Christ, or Oneness with God.

In the world's terminology, the foundation is a nonprofit corporation organized for religious and educational purposes. It is understood that true forgiveness as taught by A Course In Miracles is Divinely inspired and must be thoroughly taught and learned and accepted to be experienced. The concepts of teaching or learning may be most accurately described as the unlearning of the ego (the belief in separation from God), which clears the mind of all idols so that the Eternal Truth-the Divine Mind of God and Christ-may be remembered. All internet teaching and learning materials produced by the foundation are made available to the public free of charge. Donations are accepted to help further the Holy Spirit's Purpose of Atonement, or complete forgiveness.

Value What is Forever Free!

We are a foundation organized and operated for religious purposes, sharing the Purpose of Christ as the Living Church. We offer religious teachings based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and join in gatherings around the world in a convention of those experiencing the Awakening of Christ's Love in our hearts.  We operate as a religious school on the move all over the world, sharing teachings and demonstrating the Divine Love of Christ everywhere we travel and gather.  Our missionary work has included trips throughout North America, to Europe, to New Zealand and Australia, and to Argentina, Venezuela, & Colombia in South America.
