Jeff and Rosemarie continue to present Ken’s mind-healing message of forgiveness through the lens of their own forgiveness classrooms in their Foundation classes (live and streamed) http://www.facim.org/temecula-schedule.aspx, truly teaching, to paraphrase the Course; that he did not die by demonstrating that he lives in them, and every one of us. Jeff has also worked in various office roles since joining the Foundation for A Course in Miracles staff in November 1992.

  • Gloria Wapnick: an inspiration and guiding light  Husband and fellow Co-founder of the Foundation for A Course in Miracles in Temecula, California, Kenneth Wapnick, PhD, calls her the foundation’s “inspiration and guiding light.” In this first of a series of articles based on interviews with Gloria Wapnick she speaks candidly about her Catholic childhood, involvement in international affairs, living in Iran, finding A Course in Miracles, meeting and later marrying Ken, and creating the foundation. As always, I am indebted to the Wapnicks for faithfully and generously dedicating their lives to sharing the Course’s transformative message of true forgiveness for all. Growing up in the Bronx in the 1940s and 50s in an Italian, Catholic family, Gloria Wapnick always felt close to Mary, and often prayed to her for help in reconciling ambivalent feelings about a God that would sacrifice his Son to death on the cross. “It was frightening to go into church and see a crucifix ...

  • Talking with Gary Renard In The Disappearance of the Universe, bestselling author Gary Renard chronicles his extraordinary conversations with Arten and Pursah, two “ascended masters” who introduced him to the profound spiritual psychology A Course in Miracles. Eight years later, the book (along with his second book Your Immortal Reality) remains a portal to the Course for ever increasing numbers of spiritual seekers throughout the world, and a pivotal work in its own right. I recently talked with Gary about how his understanding and practice of A Course in Miracles’ central teaching of unique forgiveness has evolved since the publication of Disappearance. As always he was entertaining, forthright, and incredibly clear in his ability to articulate the Course’s uncompromising truth and transformative message. (I’m excited to be attending Gary’s upcoming workshop in Colorado Springs September 24. Go to Miracle Promotions for information and reservations.) You’ve been under siege a couple times by others in the ...
