Dr. Ken Wapnick: A Course In Miracle’s First Teacher

Dr. Kenneth Wapnick (PhD Psychology) was A Course In Miracle's first teacher. He met Helen Schucman and William Thetford in 1972, and became Helen’s close personal friend.  Further, he helped her prepare the manuscript for its first publication.

During that time Helen even asked him to explain for her some of the passages in the Course.   So Ken, on one or two occasions, taught Jesus’ concepts to the scribe.  Helen used the content of the Course in her teaching and contact with some of her psychiatry patients. 
 
The complete story of Helen’s life, the events that led up to her scribing of the Course and her relationship to Ken Wapnick can be found in his book, Absent From Felicity: The Story Of Helen Schucman And Her Scribing Of A Course in Miracles.

After Helen and Bill passed on Ken and his wife, Gloria, founded the Foundation for A Course in Miracles (FACIM), now located in Temecula, California.  Ken has now been teaching the Course for over 35 years, and has written many books about A Course In Miracles (ACIM) which are available at the Foundation For A Course In Miracles.
