You are cordially invited to attend a weekly study group for A Course In Miracles (ACIM)!
We offer a weekly ACIM Discussion Group which facilitates understanding the practical application of using the teachings of the Course in our daily lives.
Suitable for beginners and advanced students.
You can visit our Yahoo Group site to meet other students of the Course online and share your thoughts and insights.
The weekly Group meeting is held from 6:30pm to 8:00 every Monday in the Gerber Clinic Movement Studio on the 2nd floor. Please come on time and bring your study material. Friends and drop-ins are always welcome.
Our primary text is A Course in Miracles, Third Edition. It is highly recommended that you get a copy for your own study purposes. Resources are also available for free online.

It is based on the acronym PAUSE, which defines five essential resource states that chart a Path to Wholeness through deeper levels of embodiment, personal awareness, physiological balance, spiritual guidance, and fulfillment.

In addition to teaching PAUSE and A Course in Miracles, Bud's spiritual life is greatly enhanced through the three-year Doctorate of Divinity program he is currently undertaking with All Faiths Seminary International. The focus of AFSI is to respectfully explore the deepest connections each Wisdom Tradition has with the Divine.

Bud’s Practice and Philosophy
I feel one of the biggest challenges facing humanity is the illusion of separation, which creates all pain, suffering, and victimhood in our lives. Learning that we all have the same basic goal - to give and receive Love - can greatly aid each of us in our physical, mental, spiritual growth, and in the overall healing of our perspective of the world.
The PAUSE Model™ is the result of synthesizing the best of multiple therapeutic modalities and holistic approaches to psychotherapy. PAUSE represents the distillation of the two author’s life’s work, and is based on removing all the obstacles to the awareness of Love’s endless presence, which is the birthright of everyone, everywhere.
