There is a way of knowing that can take you beyond where all your learning has taken you. It can take you to the truth of who you are. It is the way of the heart.


A Course of Love is a course for the heart. Remarkably, it bypasses the mind. It uses thought to go beyond thought. Those yearning to access the heart’s knowing will find help here. This is your invitation to live the purposeful, meaningful life of the new—the reality of heaven on earth.

A Course in Love and A Course in Miracles “work hand-in-hand”

A Course of Love is, in its own words, a “continuation of A Course in Miracles.” It was received telepathically, unexpectedly, from the same Source (Jesus). It builds upon the same thought system as ACIM. It came to Mari Perron over three years (1998-2000).

You are called to nothing short of creating a new heaven and a new earth. This does not, however, entail specificity any more than the miracle does. It does not entail choice. It is a way of being. When you are fully aware of your oneness of being and begin to create in unity and relationship, you will do so by simply being who you are being, just as you have ‘created’ during the time of your separation by being who you have thought yourself to be. — from ACOL.

Anyone yearning to access the heart’s knowing will find help here—whether or not they are familiar with ACIM.


“Love cannot be taught.” The explanation for why a new Course was needed is almost as simple as that.

This is the only reason for this continuation of the coursework provided in A Course in Miracles. While you continue to put effort into learning what cannot be learned, as you continue to see yourself as a student seeking to acquire what you do not yet have, you cannot recognize the unity in which you exist . . . (A.4)

A Course in Miracles attempted to dislodge the ego-mind that has provided you with an identity that you but think you are. A Course of Love then followed in order to reveal to you who you truly are. (T2:4.3)

Mari Perron, a devout Catholic living in St. Paul, Minnesota, discovered A Course in Miracles in 1996. Immediately she knew it was true, and read it seven times during the next two years. Then in 1997 she had a prophetic dream. She heard, “You can no longer sell your mind for money. Your mind now belongs to God.” After months of soul-searching she quit her job and wondered what to do next. Finally on December 1, 1998, after many months of uncertainty, she began to “hear” a Voice in her mind. The first words were: This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. The time for you to take it is now. You are ready and miracles are needed. (C:P.1)

“As soon as I heard the familiar voice of Jesus, not as I remembered it from my youth or the Bible, but as I remembered it from many readings of A Course in Miracles, I was awestruck by the task set before me. For the next three years, I dedicated myself to receiving the three books that combine to deliver this new message.”

A Course of Love Daily Quote
From A Course of Love, T3:21.4 The truth is not a concept. It is real. It is all that is real.


I have been a full-time A Course In Miracles teacher/facilitator/student for over 33 years and a teacher/student of A Course of Love for over 7 years. ACIM concludes by saying, “This course is a beginning, not an end.” In my opinion, A Course of Love is the natural next step. ACOL is MIND BLOWING and totally illuminating. It takes you to the next level of awakening. I highly, highly recommend it.

The Best Kept Secret… (that shouldn’t be!) To write a review of this book, of this series of books, is challenging in that it seems impossible to encapsulate a life-changing experience by writing a few words. Seemingly more difficult is it to express in words that which elevates you in spirit to the ultimate mountaintop experience. An experience so profound and exquisitely encompassing that my heart swells and my spirit soars 3 full years after being introduced to this work. The delay in writing the review stems from the personal struggle of finding the ‘right’ words to share so as to fully and accurately review that which is beyond words. How do I add to that which is already complete? And perhaps more importantly, how do I not detract from it? But this relentless desire to share my experience with A Course of Love has ultimately won out over my uncertainty of being able to write a review that gives due justice. I am not the author (at least no more than you) and I am not here to ‘sell’ the book. But it would be a great disservice for me to not share. If the person that shared it with me had not, I would have missed the most significant read of my life. Certainly you would expect a review to include or describe what the book is ‘about.’ And herein lies the difficulty. I find the process of trying to sum this book up in words completely frustrating. Now the words, or rather, the voice of the book comes through as clear and penetrating as the clarion sound of a well-tuned bell, ringing loud and true into the very heart of the reader. . .
