Volume Two

Thanks again to everyone who’s been following ‘Reflections on A Course in Miracles‘. The posts have added up, and again been made into a small volume. From the preface:

Surveying the contents of Volume One in this series, I noticed a couple of things that set this current volume apart. Firstly, the posts here are generally longer, and so there are fewer of them. (Perhaps settle down to read with a beverage of your choice before each post: you’re in for a relatively long haul but, I hope, a rewarding one.)

Secondly, several posts give quite a bit of time to psychological and sociological theory, synthesising thoughts from these disciplines with the principles of ‘A Course in Miracles’. This is just something I like to do: I find comparative approaches to the Course both stimulating and helpful.

So, who might you encounter within these pages? There’s a bit of Sigmund Freud (‘Of course there is!’) and his thoughts on aggression, a smidge of Martin Seligman and his Positive Psychology, loads of Émile Durkheim — the sociologist concerned with modern despair, a big nod to professor of psychology Lawrence Kohlberg and his experiments in morality, and a good dose of gratitude for Melanie Klein and her pioneering work with infants and children

And most importantly, I still refer to the odd television program…
