I have started my journey with the Course and Efrat's teaching program a few years ago.
No other teachings have made me question my entire thought system, have shattered completely my familiar view of the world, have overthrown everything I'd ever believed – and simultaneously brought me more healing and deep transformation than the Course.
On this journey, while learning and living the Course, our personal world is the classroom in which we learn our individual lessons and teach them to each other.
Through all those hopes, fears, loves and hates, desperations,guilts, births and deaths I am gently, kindly and carefully guided by my teachers:
Jesus and Efrat, my lovely wordly one ! who lead me along with comfort , assurance and encouragement, never letting go of my hand, always seeing me differently and speaking for truth and love!
Without them and their constant reminder I would never be able to learn getting past the ego and that there is only one true healing force = FORGIVENESS!….and that separation is only illusion, there is really nothing to forgive at all.
Behind all our illusionary thinking and judging there is only one truth:
The all encompassing love which connects us all, in which we are all ONE and at home in GOD.
We are children of love. Not sin and guilt.
I always wanted to know, what it was like to learn from Jesus my brother. Here is my chance!
Thank you my dearest Efrat!
With lots of love to you all my fellow travellers! Doris Ben Dror

The Gods Teachers' Program with Efrat Sar-Shalom has been the most amazing, liberating and empowering program I have ever learned (and believe me, I have learned so much before with so many teachers around the world).
Efrat teaches the internal way with the Holy Spirit. She works with the course’s tools and demonstrates its ways of learning and teaching.
With her special way of teaching, she directs each student to his unique way of teaching and finding his own voice and gifts to the world.
I can say that by looking inwards and just asking for the Holy Spirit’s help, time and time again, with Efrat’s guidance, I have found my light. As I understand the massage of the course, this is the only way one can teach others, by walking through his shadows of fear and remove barrier after barrier against love.
After 5 years of learning Course in Miracles with Efrat I found that my life have changed for the better in so many ways. I have started teaching two groups of the course this year and it was such a tremendous joy to see how much I have already known, as if I was born to do exactly this. There is no doubt in my mind that she is my master and the fact that she lives by the course is the only reason I could let her lead me to implements my dream and mission in this life time, being an emissary of love.
You are starting your journey home with the one teacher that show you the way to your own true self, give in, believe and enjoy! You won’t be the same afterwards and you won’t regret it.
I wanted to become a teacher in A Course In Miracles.
The course Changes my life
I wanted to be able to help others with this amazing tool, to help them see there is another way to experience life, that we do not have to suffer. That there is a way out of this misery. That we can feel our greatness and stop feeling so small and guilty and powerless. That we have control over our lives. Life does not happen to me. I am the creator and I can change it. And – I am not alone.
It is one thing to live by it, and understand it, and it is a whole other thing to be able to teach these things that seem so strange and even "crazy" at first.
Learning how to teach with Efrat Sar-Shalom feels like going on a guided tour with the Holy Spirit. Her voice is soft and full of love and she teaches with a strong sense of presence and connection. You can feel the love in the air. The love that binds us and surrounds us and makes us who we are. The lesson evolves around the topics and around the students as if it is tailored specifically for the students in the room – and it is. The guidance in the lessons is so high that I do believe the Holy Spirit itself is there teaching us through Efrat.
These lessons are miracles in themselves. Efrat's way of teaching is unique and it works through the senses rather than through the mind. It is extremely strong and along the course you feel like you are building a spine that will enable you to comfortably meet every new person/ student and lead the way.
You learn how to approach people with distress and how to approach difficult topics of the course and how to leave your EGO behind and deeply understand that we are here to help. We are only a channel for the work of GOD to flow through.
I feel privileged to be learning with Efrat – the messenger of GOD and hope you will have this same privilege.
At the end of the day Efrat claims that it is all the work of god and it total is.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my whole heart. I started the journey with you in 2011, and since then I learned the meaning of true love and happiness. I remember the day that I came to purchase the Acim book from you, and with an endless gentleness you gave it to me, and from your eyes I knew I wanted to take the journey in. That moment was a holy instant and I knew deep inside that everything will change in my life. And it did. Every lesson and every gathering with the Acim teachers group was full of light and understanding. We read from the text, asked questions, worked in couples and in little groups, and listened deeply to our inner guide. Between every gathering, we continued to look at our feelings and our ego thoughts by practicing with the workbook and answering the inventory questions you gave us in the class. I can't describe in words how much happiness I received by studying from you and from working with the group of teachers. They are not just students or teachers, they are sisters for life. With all my love – Nilly
