Mystical Mind Training Program
Mystical Mind Training (MMT) is an online, advanced mind training program for those desiring an experiential way of healing the mind and undoing the ego completely. Spiritual Awakening texts, videos, music, audio files, and writings are woven together in a curriculum designed to heighten understanding of the metaphysics of A Course in Miracles, and transfer the training to everything that has been believed—without exception. Many of the spiritual teachings are from ACIM teacher David Hoffmeister. The MMT program also provides discussion forums where you can connect with other students for support and inspiration.
Details of the MMT Program
Who It Is ForMMT is for miracle-workers, teachers of God, and ACIM teachers and students who have advanced in the curriculum of forgiveness yet need additional structure in the practical application to experience a consistently peaceful state of mind. Topics Included in the ProgramTopics in the program include guidance, holy relationship, metaphysics, empathy, no private thoughts, trust and inspiration, the power of thought, special relationships, prayer, psychotherapy and teaching, discernment, mind-watching, enlightenment, forgiveness, and divine providence. AssignmentsAssignments are woven throughout the program for the purpose of inner inquiry and to develop a clear understanding of the teachings. This involves taking the ideas inward to question limiting beliefs, and applying the ideas to one's own thoughts and life situations. Some assignments involve only prayer and contemplation; others involve discussion with an MMT mind training partner. Most assignments involve using an online function to submit a written response, which may be read, graded, and given feedback on by one of our volunteer MMT teachers*.
Support for the Program
MMT is largely a self-study program, but it also offers opportunities to expand your mind through the use of relationships and other forms of support. This support can come in the following ways:
- A mind training partner is another MMT student with whom you'll be encouraged to communicate with as you go through the program. A mind training partner is a "mighty companion" that can be a valuable support in your continued progress and completion of each course.
- Occasional feedback on your assignments from volunteer teachers or tutors on our staff who have gone through the material themselves. They can help by clarifying the teachings and/or offering encouragement as inspired.*
- Other support, such as supplemental websites and resources are additional ways to help you integrate the teachings into your experience of daily life. Some examples of supplemental websites and resources are:
*We do not always have volunteer MMT teachers and tutors on our staff, and even when we do, they may not always be guided to read and grade every assignment. But when we do and they are available, they can be thought of as a helpful bonus—a loving reflection to your own mind's desire for Awakening!
- A consistent daily study practice, over a period of 12 months with a non-dualistic spiritual text that is in alignment with Living Miracles teachings, like A Course in Miracles.
- Involvement with Living Miracles, David Hoffmeister's teachings, and related study materials for a minimum of 3 months.
