About Lisa

I am a teacher and healer.

I believe in the power of God combined with awareness of your own holiness (wholeness) to heal all things.

I teach and train people how to heal themselves and how to heal others, by practicing and living the ideas contained in the book A Course in Miracles. 

For most of my life, I struggled with fear, in all its forms: doubt, anger, sadness, worry, overwhelm, anxiety.

I searched in many ways for a way out of pain by reading lots of self-help books. I also tried to be a nice, positive, loving and optimistic person. I thought that if I really worked hard and did my best, I could have happiness and success but mostly this only made me feel more exhausted than ever.

I found A Course in Miracles in 1992 and had no idea what it was or who wrote it, but I felt constantly attracted to the book and repelled by it in equal measures. The Christian terminology made me nervous. On July 4, 2000, I committed my life to God and to A Course in Miracles. I stood in my living room and said: God, if you are there, I’m all yours. I want to work for you now.

It took all of 5 seconds to say it – to call on God – and my life changed forever. Ten days later I lost my job in NYC in publishing and I have been following intuition ever since that day, going wherever I am led.

At a certain point, I began to think about Jesus A LOT. I became curious about who he was as a man and as a teacher, and I began to see him as my teacher. I started to think that I was there with him 2000 years ago as one of his disciples and that he was with me now. I began to experiment with talking to him and asking for his help, and astonishing great things began to happen.

I created an online free course called the 40-Day Program which is based on my own personal theory that the fastest way to real change and results is to decide that you are going to live in a new way and then you start to consistently live in the new way.

I co-founded a non-profit organization called the Teachers of God Foundation, which supports, inspires and encourages individuals to go through the transformation from fear to love, using the principles of A Course in Miracles.

I highly recommend meeting Lisa LIVE in person if you can, she carries angels and the Christ within which is so powerful. Lisa’s guidance opened a flood of old hidden emotions to be healed in me and I truly feel so blessed to have met you Lisa 💜 Lisa is the best

Maggie Elliott:
Hello everyone! It’s a joy taking this journey with all of you! This is truly an amazing experience for me. Thank you Lisa. I have been aimlessly lost in a desert storm for about four years. This moment in the desert now with this mind training is clearing the sand clouds and so much truth is being revealed. I had to get myself to this point to start searching for another way and the windy road led me to this amazing 40 days.

From: Irene Mees:

Lisa !!! You truly are a gifted teacher. Your big beautiful smile & joy are a blessing to me and to so many others. Thank you . This is SO MUCH FUN ! You are so beautiful and you TOTALLY shine! THANK YOU deeply. For showing up every day. For caring so much. For sharing your journey & insights. WOW! This is tremendous. I am on the edge of my seat!

I’m the happiest I have been in 5 years, I feel all grievances falling away and seeing myself as love and light. It’s true people don’t come into ones life by accident. My room mate was also going through a healing process after much pain and suffering. I didn’t get caught up in her story, rather watched myself like a hawk, just practiced spontaneous healing, sending out love and surrendering my mind. Thank you Lisa. Love you.

Sandra Breininger:
Dear Lisa, your 40-day program has blessed me with purpose and inner joy. Your lessons cheer me on every morning with divine inspiration. You touch my soul with the clarity of your teachings, which you convey so eloquently through your written words, videos, pictures and inspirational messages. l am like a flower that has fully blossomed through total healing. I am the light of the world extending love. I am doing the program for the third time and continue to be amazed at the miraculous shifts I experience. Thank you for caring, sharing your genuine self, and beaming your love and light to all. I absolutely loved Gorgeous For God in which you so candidly share your own transformation. With Love and gratitude xo

Mieke Scheffers:

Dear Lisa,
I want to show you my gratitude for your encouraging and inspiring art of guiding us with your 40 day program. It helps me a lot to stay in tune to my true Self, to choose for Love and inner strengths. It helps me to get clear when I am confused and trapped in old limiting patterns. I love it that you help us recognize and trust our inner true teacher and how to easy switch from the ego to the truth inside. So that finally we can trust our inner teacher and not get dependent on somebody else. Thank you, I feel more confidence!! May many people be inspired by you. All the people that I recommended to follow your program are happy with it. ( Ha-ha, for me it is also the first time, but I trusted it!! We feel blessed.

Kim Kings:

Dear Lisa, thank you so much for the 40 Day Program. Your program was exactly what I needed. I went through a miraculous transformation in 2005 and I knew the Truth right then and there. It was amazing. But somehow over the years, life, people, and ego managed to talk me out of what I knew to be True. Your program has helped me find my way back to the Truth. I am so grateful. Thank you. xo

Lorna Landry:

I read A Course in Miracles for the first time in 2007, and it seems I have been reading this book ever since. It is changing my life in the most miraculous way, and I am happy to say, I no longer look at the world the same way. Lisa Natoli and the 40 Day Program has been invaluable to me in helping me to see the message of ACIM come alive in my own personal experience. Her teaching is clear, genuine, loving, funny, and her joyous spirit reaches out to me to show me my joyous spirit in each of her videos. She has been a wonderful reminder for me to remember who I am and how to correctly look at the world I see. Lisa is the Light that is showing me I too am the Light, and I am eternally grateful to have found her.

Karen Montague:

Lisa I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles now for about 8 years. I’m so happy to have found your 40-day program. You make it all seem so easy. I look forward every morning to watching your video and following your practices. You are an awesome Teacher of God and I pray that Hay House realizes this. About a week ago I hurt my back shoveling snow. When my mind goes to the pain I quickly remind myself I am not a body and the pain disappears. I am using the healing prayer and all is well. Thank you for all you do. Sending love and blessings.

Ghislaine Timmermans:

Dear Lisa, your 40-day program is deeply touching me and making me stronger, more lovable to myself and others, it is very confronting but I get a big support from your video’s every day. My self-confidence and confidence in God grows every day with your program. I am so grateful and happy that you help me in my life. I love you x

Susie Foletta:

HI Lisa… I just want to let you know how absolutely extraordinary I am finding this 40 Day Program. I have been A Course In Miracles student off and on for over twenty years and have to admit, have found much of it ‘heavy going’…. hence the off and on nature of my studies!! What I am finding profound about this program and I am sure, all the other work you do which I am now becoming aware of, is how simple and clear you make it all. The work is not complicated but the ego wishes to make it so, but you bring us constantly back to Truth…gently, firmly, and lovingly…re-affirming
constantly the purity of the teachings with practical actions we can bring into our daily lives. I am really being the transformation…thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.

Marga Jansen:

Dear Lisa, Knowing and not knowing A Course in Miracles for quite some years, I have to say that I felt unable to live it. I was crying out for help, and the most beautiful message was posted on Facebook: The 40-Days Program from Lisa Natoli starts on January 1st, 2016. I checked out what kind of a Program it was and I felt so grateful for having noticed this, this was what I needed to feel more dedicated.
The way you explain, talk about your experiences and give explanation by pictures make me “feel” the lessons, the Course becomes vivid to me, as it was never before. I become more and more aware of where my mind is and that I now have so many tools to let my fears go and choose Love. I feel much more quiet and free inside. Your trust makes me feel safe and your guided Love really is to me a call for going home.
I have no words to express my gratitude, dear Lisa, for following your guidance to the call for this 40-Days Program. May everyone see and receive the Miracles in this.
I love you

Jolande Broeders:

This journey, the 40 days program, is really a journey, from not knowing to knowing, from not seeing to acknowledging, who I really Am. Not an easy journey for me, but it gives me so much, I love it! The first thing I do when I awake is listening to the next lesson.
Lisa you are a great teacher, with humor, integrity, and you have such a clear way of explaining. I am grateful for you offering this course. I thank you and I love you

Kathy Hyland Flett:

Dear Lisa,
Thank you so much for this amazing 40 day program. I found you “by accident” right at the start of the last 40 day program in the summer. I had received some very bad news in work and I had nowhere to turn. I had dabbled in Course in Miracle of and on for the past 15 years. I never quite got it. I never finished the lessons. That day when I went home, I typed in “Course in Miracles” on the Internet. Your name came up and your 40-day boot camp was starting the next day. It was truly “heaven sent” for me. I did the retreat @ Ferry Beach and I felt a peace I had not felt in years. Kathy Winslow and I bought your book, “Gorgeous for God” to share. She read it on the retreat and I took it home. I love how clear you make the teachings of a Course in Miracles. I loved today when I read a few pages and the theme was “Forget your brothers past today.” I am treating the book as a special treat and I read a few pages at a time. It is like a wonderful meal, or a beautiful piece of music. I am savoring it. I do that with books that I don’t want to end. It is a classic, as are you and your husband Bill. I am finding this year’s 40 days even more special and thought out than last. You are a wonderful teacher. You truly are the light of the world.

Martha Aida De Ochoa:

To Lisa!
I am a student and facilitator of a course of miracles from 10 years ago,
On the way I’ve met some wonderful teachers, and if someone has inspired me is this Program from 40 days of Lisa. I even took the wonderful task of translating it into Spanish for that to reach more people and could benefit from the simplicity and practicality of the same. Lisa has the ability to bring these lessons to the plane of everyday life and succeeded in landing concepts that might be so complex viewed from another place, which is very easy to put them into practice.Thank you Lisa, on behalf of the Spanish-speaking community we bless you and we thank you!!!

Yvonne Magee:

Lisa, just getting in touch to tell you how miraculous your 40-day course is. What an exciting and life-changing 40 days we are now in the midst of, with ups and downs, but real, deep, lasting healing, ‘getting’ the life-changing thought system of A Course in Miracles as never before. Each day, I can’t wait to listen to your voice and learn how new miracles will unfold in my life on that day! You MUST get this important, life-changing work out to more people. It will change the world!
……………………………………………………………..
Jackie Sue Holt:
I am half way through the 40-day program. Wow what a beautiful journey this is. So many great things to say to you, Lisa, about the way you are presenting these lovely messages, the thoughtful way you have put this program together and the personal attention you give everyone. You are a true expression of Love. I don’t recognize myself right now. I am peaceful, playful, full of joy, finding my voice and trusting my inner guidance. Jackie, the victim that was either scared of everyone or ready to attack them, is fading before my very eyes. Thank you so much. I Love you Lisa.

Sara Blake:
Lisa, About 6 years ago, a friend of mine told me a little about A Course In Miracles and suggested I read your book Gorgeous for God as a starting place. Reading ACIM, listening to your podcasts and radio show (The Max & Lisa Show), reading your emails, doing the Workbook Lessons in ACIM, and taking your 40-Day online transformation programs have changed me spiritually more than anything else I have ever tried. It was your teaching and sharing of your experiences that played a HUGE role in my spiritual path. I believe one day you will be on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and millions will have the opportunity to experience the same transformation I and many others have experienced. The change I experienced after the first 40-Day Program was so powerful, I wasn’t sure it came about from that. I told a co-worker about it and she participated in the next 40-Day Program. She had the same experience and that was proof enough for me. For anyone who needs a God with skin, you are it. I love you, Lisa.

Laura Powers:
Lisa, I thank you from my soul for the 40-day program, it introduced me to A Course In Miracles and absolutely changed my life and my thinking in a way nothing could! I have done it 4 times now, and also the 6 month program, and friends who saw the amazing change in me and my thinking, also signed on for the 40 days when it came back around, and they’re friends saw remarkable changes in them and they signed on, so Jesus is definitely getting his light workers, teachers of God carrying the message to others, and that is because of your generous, selfless work you do to carry the messages to others, you are truly an amazing representative of God and I thank you from my soul! Your sister in the Christ mind, Laura.

Kimberly Eaton:
Thank you for the 40-day program. I have been working through A Course in Miracles (ACIM) for about 6 months now. I feel it has changed my life and lead me to a peace that I have never known. I wanted to understand it better and your program has helped me to experience ACIM in a deeper way. I have gained a better understanding of the material and I feel so much happier. You are truly a gift. I hope you find more ways to get your message out to others who are also searching for peach and joy in their lives. God bless you.

Trish Hedine:
Hi Lisa, your 40-day Course of Miracles program has changed my life. I have taken it a few different times along with your Living in Purpose. It has had such a profound effect on me. So many people have noticed this change more than anything else including my therapist who I have been seeing for a few years. I love this program and have told others about it who also are taking this course too. It has really opened me up to so much, especially the way I perceive everything now. Thank you for your love and dedication to doing these courses.

Holly Morency Gleason:
Lisa Natoli is an inspirational and loving leader and teacher. I have taken her 40-Day Program in A Course in Miracles and I have attended her weekly study group on A Course in Miracles. I cannot express clearly enough how Lisa’s love and knowledge has set me free from so many obstacles. I come from a dysfunctional family unit and I had created a lot of safety techniques to help me feel safe. With Lisa’s guidance, I am free of the internal tapes that limited me so much. I used to think they were helping me and it took Lisa’s lessons and love to help me see that they were limiting me. Thank you Lisa for all you give and for all the love you share. Blessings to you always. Holly Gleason

Susan Nelson Stover:
Lisa~ There are not enough words to tell or explain how much you mean to me. From the very first Skype chat years ago to now with another 40-day program. I have studied A Course in Miracles since 1992 when my Social Services office was attacked by a person with a gym bag full of ammunition and a 9mm gun. He killed four of my coworkers. I missed being shot by him by listening to the small voice I heard that told me to go back to my office. The man walked right into me as if I were invisible. The Holy Spirit saved me that day; and you began to teach me how to understand, listen, and always to pause and hear that small voice.
Throughout these years, from the book ” Gorgeous for God”, the 365 lessons, and numerous 40-day programs you have encouraged and taught me so much. Your simple explanations of the text have helped me understand and grow with each video or MP3 file. I love you sister, as much as any blood sister could or would. You are an inspiration. Thank you just isn’t enough.

Jeni Brooks:
This 40-Day course has been life changing Lisa, you are truly are an inspiration. You have opened my eyes in such a beautiful way, for years I have been searching, but you have got through to me! This course is truly life changing, everyone should do it.

Caroline Lennon-Nally:

The 40 day program sought me out in a way that felt nothing other than miraculous. It’s enabled me to find my way out of the maze. Lisa’s dedication to living in the light is positively contagious. I’ve just purchased ‘ Gorgeous for God’ now. Thank you!!!!

Nancy Gray:

Your 40 day course has lead me to a place of greater peace than I thought possible. “Watching like a hawk” has proven to be the key I needed to unlock the meanings in prior ACIM studies and the recently completed year with James Twyman’s musical version. Thank you so much for sharing the light Lisa
………………………………………………………………….
Ora Goldin:

My life is changing before my eyes as I participate in her 40 day program, a true gift to myself and so many others. Shedding illusions and connecting to my essence as pure love and divinity, she is guiding me to my true self. A place I have been too afraid to live. A self where I know I am whole and healed, light and love, worthy and abundant and divinity manifested. Even though we have never met she has made herself so available and accessible through her videos and Facebook responses I feel like she is talking right to me. I am truly grateful that my path led me to her and my light continues to strengthen every day from her teachings and approach to ACIM. In gratitude and love, Ora Goldin

Jean Eger:

Lisa I am in complete amazement. I have taken this program three times before. I always loved it and derived so much joy from it (along with the bumps of ego recognition) but this time it is as if I never heard it, a completely new course. It has affected me in beautiful ways that I could never have imagined and given me an even deeper understanding of A Course in Miracles, a more spontaneous living it, being it. You are such a blessing and I thank you from my GOD-filled heart. I would say God bless you but that has already taken place.
……………………………..
Lorri Coburn:
Thank you for this program, Lisa Natoli! So much stuff is coming up and is releasing very quickly. I made a list of all the shifts in consciousness and they are numerous! The ego wants us to keep focusing on what has not yet changed, so this list really helped. Some of the seemingly hardest stuff came up yesterday and today around my family’s disapproval. Instead of melting down, as the old self would have, I loved myself through it and released wanting approval.
…………………………………..
Kristina Kalman:
I love this program and it has given me so much peace even if life has dealt me some blows lately. By thinking about the things I learn here I have been able to bounce back to peace much faster than before and I know that I will be able to stay in peace from now on.
……………………………………………………
Allison Bigbie:
A sweet return into freedom is what this program has done for me. It truly is revolutionary. I did not know how much I was suffering until the shift occurred. It all seems very simple to me now. I LOVE that I get to choose to “lay down the sword” and that usually is followed by internal laughter at the silliness of the stories I’m battling with in my head. I had a vision during my few minutes with God before getting out of bed in the morning two days ago. It was a silhouette of Jesus (but a knowing that it was me too because we are one) and he was raising his hands letting go over and over again in front of a movie screen (illusions). This may not make a lot of sense, but I received it in total clarity. I feel such a sense of relief AND release. It’s so amazingly awesome to return home to love. I truly love you all!! I can 100% honestly say today with NO reservations:
I LOVE MY LIFE!

From: Julie Scheiber

Today my heart is so full of gratitude for you and all that you bring to these daily ACIM workbook lessons. They can seem so short and dry (especially the 200/300s). Somehow your own flavor brought them alive and gave them depth. I know it’s really all there in those lines, but, for me, I needed and appreciated your interpretation. Sooooo very helpful. Your passion and glee and love of this message is palpable. It becomes life itself. The transmission of Love and Truth. I’m so thankful that the script brought you along with it. You’re the Companion that comes with every blue book. It’s like I got the bonus package deal. The gold edition. I want to say than you for choosing to be in your function but in this moment it truly feels like it was not Possible, Ever, for you to have been anywhere else but in this function as Light of the World. I look forward to 2016 with You in it. I just signed up for the 40 days just so I could hear someone out there talk passionately about the Truth. Good news for a change. Bless you Beloved for sharing the Joy. I love you. jewels xx Happy New Year. May it bring all the love we deserve.

…………………………………….

Dear Lisa, God bless you! I was home alone this afternoon and started to have a MAJOR panic attack – I was afraid of fainting and laid down on the couch. Because of what I’ve already learned I asked God what to do and He reminded I am pure love, I have everything and I am eternally safe. I immediately relaxed, got up, made myself dinner and finished putting away the Christmas decorations. We haven’t even started and I’ve already received a miracle. Peace, Love and Joy, Machelle

……………………………………..
From: Karis Townsend: Cannot thank you enough for the gift that you are giving my husband and I each day right now. We love how beautifully, simply, invitingly, and most of all lovingly you put things for us. Blessings Abound… Our Love, Karis and Greg Townsend Richmond, VA.

Dearest Lisa, I really have no words to describe how miraculous this 40-day program is already. Its only Day 3 !!! But time is the problem so I won’t hark on. I AM in the Holy Instant. Sat still in the circle of stillness is like I gave the mind 100% permission to slow it all down and STOP. Just stop. Just like you said. And everything is seen. It’s in super sharp focus mode. Today I uncovered what I would call the Separation Anxiety and I literally threw up it was so strong. But I just followed your guidance and 1 hour later I am sat in the bathtub in Love and Joy and Gratitude. So Thankful for You and this Program.

From Deb:

Lisa You are such a gift to me and the world. It’s like waking up on Christmas morning every day now as I go to bed in anticipation of receiving your messages (gifts) when I awaken. Thanks Santa With love Deb Fortuna

From: Helga Dunn

Hi, I know you are receiving lots of emails from many people. I’m doing your 40 day course and I wanted to tell you I’m so grateful and humbled and excited at the same time that I’m actually find this course! It was meant to be for me! You are so wonderful, mornings I’m very excited to open my email and do your lessons, my mornings start with meditation since a long time but the lessons from you pushed me in a way that I feel much more confident on my journey. I was always interested in a course in miracles but could not connect, you made it happen! I’m so grateful for you, I learned a lot even this short period of time. Thank you again! Helga
