About the Author

Mari Perron first knew she wanted to be a writer when she was in fifth grade at St. Matthew’s School on the West Side of St. Paul, Minnesota. She continued to live in St. Paul and to write through all the major events of her life. As a returning adult student with three children, she won the Jean Keller-Bouvier Award for literary accomplishment at the University of Minnesota, and began to believe she could achieve her dream of writing mystery novels. Yet a change in the direction of that dream began to reveal itself in this volume. A decade later, her husband, Donny, built her a cabin in the woods behind their yard. She has described what she does there as giving herself space to express the inexpressible. Her published books, including A Course of Love, The Given Self, and Creation of the New, give evidence to this expression.

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. It has been the most effecting book! It can not be described as a `how to¿ manual but maybe as a `guide¿. Not as a guide in the sense of pointing the way, but rather a GUIDE as in one who walks with you (the journey without distance). It is somehow a companion more `real¿ than a physical personality. I have read many books that have had a positive effect in my life. Most have given a gentle lift while some were quite memorable. Then there are books like A Course in Miracles where you enter into a relationship with the work and find yourself engaged in something much greater than a `book¿. In fact, it was during an intense year-long study group of A Course in Miracles that I was introduced to ACOL. Think of ACOL as being for the HEART what ACIM is for the mind, with the concordant shift in Reality. If you have been a student of A Course in Miracles, then you must¿¿ I mean, MUST look into A Course of Love. You will find that the same loving `voice¿ moves from `out there¿ to in here and then you will see that it was Your voice all along. The effect of spending time with A Course of Love (series) has been experienced as a complete and total shift in consciousness. Uncertainty has been replaced with certainty and an internal compass of peace and joy guides me quietly through my days. If I can give you but one gift, this is it! I have received so much from ACOL that I simply can not hold it to myself. Please look beyond the inadequate words of this review and introduce your Self to this work.

This is not a Course. It is a relationship that you willingly enter into. It is an eternal relationship which, after you open your heart, will end all struggle and effort, and will never leave you comfortless. Heralding the end of the time of learning, this book is not to be studied, but to be imbibed, absorbed, and allowed entry into the heart and mind joined in wholeheartedness. It is truly the Journey Without Distance.
