Miracle Choice offers two games, a Training Programme for Facilitators, coaching and workshops.
Both games can be played with any challenging real life situation. A frustration or a desire.
The Relationship, Identity, Body, Needs and Miracle cards were created for the games and allow you to have specific insights into your issues. If there is an unconscious choice that is causing you stress then the games will give you an opportunity to look at it.
The Choice and Real World cards (board game only) are simple and profund messages from A Course in Miracles. The Choice cards remind you that your Identity is that of a decision maker or chooser and that you are responsible for your thoughts and feelings
All game cards are designed to give individual insights either in a quiet inner listening moment or as part of a group sharing.
The games can be played by yourself or with up to 10 people and can even be adapted for larger groups.
Full version with 164 cards, board and two dice.
The game starts with a meditation to invite your inner Guide or Teacher to be present. You then decide on a playing intention so that the game insights are specific and relevant to what you are asking.
“I choose to take the hand of my inner Guide and join with Love.
With the help of my inner Guide I am ready to look beyond any non loving thoughts and
experience the truth about me.
I allow myself to celebrate choosing miracles.
I allow myself to experience the power of choice.”
The board game is played with a Certified Facilitator, whose presence is a reminder for you to listen deeply to your own inner wisdom. The support of a Facilitator holds the space for an often surprising and life changing transformation. For more information on how you can play a facilitated game click here.
Has 70 cards, a dice and a small instuction sheet.
It takes less time to play – in less than 30 minutes you can shift deeply held beliefs and habits.
The small box fits in your pocket so you can take it with you wherever you go.

James Kelly, Catia Vasconcelos and Kathy White are the Miracle Choice Management and Educational Team. We are always on the look out for new people to join the team as the game spreads to different countries. Dorota Owen on her travels is a wonderful ambassador for the game. Emma-Jane has joined us as a virtual PA. We have fun together as we follow what the Miracle Choice Game want to do in the world.
James has been dedicated to the spiritual path, A Course in Miracles, since the mid 90s and is fascinated by choice – the choice we have in every moment to choose miracles or fear.
He remembers just how powerful choice is when he recalls staying at a beautiful beach in Brazil called dolphin bay: “Despite swimming with dolphins I felt miserable and later I realised that no matter how beautiful the environment, I still have to choose to be happy!
James has been involved in experiential learning since deciding to live and work at the Findhorn Foundation nearly 20 years ago, an international spiritual community in NE Scotland. After years of intense learning in group environments, James went on to co-facilitate week long workshops for the Foundation. He then went on to present workshops in the UK as a certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication as well as for UNIPAZ (University of Peace) in Brazil. James also holds a diploma in Training and Development.
A call to deepen his work with A Course in Miracles combined with his desire to live choice in every moment led James to create a board game called Miracle Choice.
James got the idea of using a board game as a tool, after playing a financial board game that allowed players to make mistakes and learn about investing. The idea of using a game to teach by using real life situations, made James think about using a game to help people experience some of the teachings of A Course in Miracles by bringing their own real life situations into a game.
The game appeals to dedicated students of A Course in Miracles, people who have the book on the shelf but don’t know where to begin the Course, or anyone practising a spiritual path that recognises the importance of inner choice.
James is back living with his family and two cats in NE Scotland. he has recently given up his full time work as a veterinary surgeon to dedicate his energy full time to Miracle Choice.

In the process of testing the game and editing the cards many people have joined me in the project and I am grateful for their trust and support.
I was very touched when Greta Berman a friend and Course student offered to read and comment on the cards.
My particular thanks go to Sara Ingleby. Sara was not a Course student but her understanding of the game caught my attention: she had integrated the meaning of projection. When she offered to revise the cards we shared a deep journey of learning together.
I am thankful for the initial editing by Rhiannon Hanfman.
The insightful and gentle support of my wife Catia Vasconcelos allowed the final editing to be accomplished.
Avalon dos Santos, www.pistachiocreative.co.uk, was wonderfully creative with the graphics and very professional in her support.
Mark Anderson’s creation of the website and his words of wisdom are greatly appreciated.
I had excellent business coaching form Jane Rodgers www.wildwisdom.co.uk
I am also supported by Paul Harvey of www.market-that.com for his insightful digital marketing strategy.
Although we never met, I am very grateful to Kenneth Wapnick for his insights and teachings on the subject of choice and to David Hoffmeister for his demonstration on how to live the teachings of ACIM.
