ABOUT:
Thanks for finding us here. We are focused on the journey of finding and becoming our higher selves and awakening from the dream. Eureka was coined as a word when Archimides exclaimed this sound, meaning "I have found it", while discovering a way to determine the purity of gold by applying the principle of specific gravity. We are discovering the "gold" within each of us as we uncover the blocks to that purity and innocence within all of us.

The word "miracle" comes from the latin verb "mirare", which means "to wonder or marvel". Once the mind experiences mystery and wonderment we become open to being miracle workers in our lives and the lives of others. Ultimately a miracle is a "shift in perception" moving from fear based thoughts to love based thoughts. "THINGS ARE NOT AS THEY SEEM; YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED WITHIN YOU". We practice this mind training with the study of "A Course In Miracles" (ACIM): a single volume 3 part book published in 1976 through the work of Helen Shucman and Bill Thetford, Professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in NYC.

MISSION STATEMENT:
Eureka’s mission is to support the study and practice of the principles of spiritual wisdom as expressed in “A Course In Miracles”. Together we focus toward a thought system of love, peace and joy. We teach an awareness of the mind’s tendency to move away from spirit through fear. Our curriculum of learning includes meditation practice, study groups and other programs to train each individual’s mind toward these teachings. Each of us learns that we have a choice in perception, and ultimately “thought itself” as to how we perceive ourselves, others and the world. The influence of these teachings permeates every area of one’s life and influences all those around us as well.

CLASSES:
We are here to serve those who come. The purpose being to aid participants in whatever way possible in their desire to learn and follow the principles of the “Course” and awaken from the dream

Our classes include reading Chapters and Lessons that weave the thought system of the “Course” to illuminate the mind to see spirit mind instead of ego mind. We pause during readings for questions and sharings to deepen the understanding of the message. Both miracles and fear based blocks to miracles are demonstrated. The Course distinguishes two worlds or “thought systems”: God and the ego, knowledge and perception, truth and illusion. The Study Groups enlighten the mind to differentiate these thought systems as they occur. A student learns to move more quickly away from ego thought and into spirit thought through “Course” study.

Advanced classes focus more on our beingness in the moment, with a deeper concentration in the text and theoretical teachings, while Beginner’s classes focus on the first Lessons in the Workbook to help loosen the “mind’s” fixed worldview and open to a worldview of acceptance. “I do not know what anything is for”.

NEWS:

Letter from a happy website user:

I just went to the website, oh my God...it was so peaceful there.  I was having a moment so deeply rooted in fear and just decided to visit the site.  The speaker reading was soothing to my soul and the voice literally changed my vibration. (Thank you Holy Spirit)  And then, after she spoke, one of my favorite Course excerpts was there for me to read...."How can you who are so Holy suffer..." thank you Jack for this wonderful service you provide to the world.
