The FOUNDATION FOR INNER PEACE, original publisher of "A Course in Miracles," has joined with CDE Solutions to produce this app as an aid to those working on their daily lessons from the Workbook of the Course. -- As a student of the Course have you ever spent time studying your lesson in the morning only to forget to review it at the suggested time intervals during the day? Have you ever wished that you had reminders, preset at the required time intervals, to jog your memory? Have you ever remembered to review a lesson but forgot what words to use? If so, then this app is for you!
In addition to providing convenient access to the full text of the 365 daily lessons from the Course's "Workbook for Students," THIS APP HAS BUILT-IN REMINDER ALERTS which have been preset with specific text to be remembered for the day and the time intervals as suggested within the lessons of the Workbook. For lessons that have no suggested time intervals, you can select a time interval of your choice. You can even override Course specified intervals to time intervals of your choice that fit in with your daily schedule. The app is simple to use. To begin you would select the lesson you are currently working on from a rotating "wheel," then when the wheel stops on your lesson of the day you click on "Full Text" and you are presented with the full text of the lesson. Once your beginning lesson has been selected you will be presented with the same lesson when you return the next day. This allows you review the previous lesson, or move on to your daily lesson. The complete Workbook, including Introductions, can be accessed from the wheel. During the day, shortened text (the words suggested within the Workbook lesson to be used as the reminder that day) is presented when the reminder alert is sounded. These words can be changed to whatever words you would prefer to use instead. In addition, you can choose what sound you’d like to hear as a reminder, when you want the reminder to start, and when you want it to end.
You purchase the app ONLY ONCE for all devices.
About "A Course in Miracles":
The Course’s teaching is based on the practice of forgiveness as the key to inner peace and the remembrance of God. While the app contains the text of the complete "Workbook for Students", it represents only part of the Course, a unique self-study metaphysical thought system.
Published in one volume, "A Course in Miracles" consists of three separate sections: "Text", "Workbook for Students" and the "Manual for Teachers". The "Text" section of the Course sets forth the theoretical concepts of the Course's thought system and thus provides the necessary framework to clarify the meaning of the "Workbook" exercises. It is therefore important to undertake the lessons in this app in conjunction with the writings within "A Course in Miracles".
"A Course in Miracles" was received in its entirety over a period of seven years by psychologist Dr. Helen Schucman through an inspired process she described as scribing. In 1975 the Foundation for Inner Peace, co-publisher of this app, was chosen by Dr. Schucman to be the publisher of the only original edition of "A Course in Miracles".
The "Workbook for Students", contained in this app, includes 365 lessons which are designed to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world. As stated in the Introduction to the Workbook: “The exercises are very simple. They do not require a great deal of time, and it does not matter where you do them. They need no preparation.” You are asked only not to undertake to do more than one exercise a day. You might however choose to remain with a particularly appealing lesson for more than one day.

3) App has been localized so date and times will show up in the format for the region selected in the user's device.
4) Some minor fixes to reminder text.
5) An issue that has been preventing the app from running on iPods has been corrected.
Works great with Apple Watch
The app is very helpful, and with the right attitude it can help you experience the ACIM workbook at a deep level. I started last year and didn't like the app and didn't get very far in the workbook. A new, more reverent attitude, and it is perfect :-). In the morning I set mylesson and my alerts on, and do my first exercuse using the reminder text and the timer on the top right of that page. I love how the reminders go straight to my watch. I still open the phone and use the reminder text and the timer on that page for each session, but having the reminder go to my watch is hugely helpful. Great job; thanks.
ACIM Reminder App
ACIM app with reminders makes it so easy to keep up with the lessons. I tried to do ACIM last year with just the workbook and eBook text, but it was so hard to stay consistent.
This app makes it so easy. My phone is the first item I grab for in the morning. I look at the next lesson right when I get up in the morning. Set my reminders and the lesson pops up at predetermined intervals. I love it! Day 21!
Now I never miss a lesson
I belong to a study group and we read the lesson for the day and discuss it. During the week I would be able to get to two or three. Now with the app I am able to read one everyday and read it several times through the day😍
