A Course In Miracles Teacher

What if you knew of a way to let A Course in Miracles become truly alive in you?

My name is Bastiaan Berende. Five years ago, I recognized a desire in myself to true up to what the Course had given me. I wanted to become a consistent expression of it. With that in mind I explored the manner in which I was to teach A Course in Miracles. Ever since I have developed an effective program to learn and teach A Course in Miracles.

 
In my soon to be published book I wrote: "Without criticism or competition, I witnessed each teacher grow in style and stature. I learned to be patient and tolerant. I learned to appreciate each teaching style as much as the next. I learned that each teacher has something equally beautiful and whole to offer the class; the newcomer just as much as the advanced teacher. Where convention placed one teacher before a room full of students, the format of Time to Teach produced a room full of honest, uncompromising teachers. 

I invite you to:

•    Be truly alive and happy.
•    Take in the contents of A Course in Miracles through a vital and thematic curriculum.
•    Strengthen your commitment to a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual awakening.
•    Move from a mere conceptual understanding to an integrated spiritual experience.
•    Share revelatory moments in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.
•    Voice your inner most conviction of the truth in all power and simplicity.
•    Express God's light and love.
•    Engage others in the blessed act of teaching A Course in Miracles.

I will to empower thousands of individuals to practice and teach A Course in Miracles. To implement Time to Teach A Course in Miracles on a world wide scale, I developed three program extensions: 'Seminar' weeks or weekends to introduce the class format; 'On Location' classes to keep them going; and 'Distance Learning' courses to participate regardless of where you are.  With this writing I invite you to participate in the latter.

Distance Learning
Time to Teach A Course in Miracles 'Distance Learning' is my online program. The platform I chose for it is 'Moodle', a website for distance learning education. This program revolves around weekly online classes, four-weekly essay writing assignments, quarterly publishing assignments and a special skills training.

Featured in the distance learning is the abundance of personal and spiritual support you receive from teachers and class facilitators who are spiritually awake and committed to help you recognize your innocence and realize your perfection as God created you.

The distance learning is personal on the one hand and interactive on the other. You spend quality time with yourself when you prepare for your classes, write your essays, complete additional tasks and speak to your facilitator in private phone calls. These times of quiet then are interspersed with dynamic activities like the weekly Skype Class and the periodic Teleseminars and Conference calls.

To lend motivational and technical support I created tutorials and personal video-introductions on the Moodle homepage. To interact with classmates I set up a forum and a chat room. To tap into a variety of resources you can use the online notebook I set up to keep track of your research and writing, you can visit the library to find related articles and book suggestions, and you can use the publishing database to publish your essays and other written, audio or video materials.

Time to Teach 'Distance Learning' enables you to:
•    Participate from the privacy of your home.
•    Fulfill tasks at your own time and convenience.
•    Meet fellow teachers and from different parts of the country and the world.
•    Teach 5-15 minutes in a Skype online class each week.
•    Receive personal feedback on your essays.
•    Post your essays and read your classmates' essays on a forum.
•    Publish selected essays on the internet through a publishing database.
•    Chat with others in your class.
•    Share and evaluate your experiences with the distance learning in conference calls.
•    Watch free video introductions and tutorials.
•    Use a free reference library with suggested reading through booklists and web-links.
•    Receive personal guidance through a periodic One on One phone-call with a facilitator.
•    Become certified as a facilitator of your own Time to Teach A Course in Miracles online or on location classes.
