On Friday, December 27th, 2013 our dear friend and teacher of A Course in Miracles, Kenneth Wapnick, made his transition into eternal life. Our prayers are with Ken and his family on his continuing journey. We are grateful for his presence in our lives and for his dedication to the Course. The following is the official announcement from his organization, The Foundation for A Course in Miracles:
It is with the utmost sorrow that we inform you of the death of Dr. Kenneth Wapnick on Friday December 27, 2013. He died peacefully at home with his beloved wife Gloria and family at his side. The family will have a private service.

Our Holy Encounter Weekends are designed to give people an opportunity to go deeper into the life-changing principles of A Course in Miracles. Lectures, discussions, group activities, meditations and music all combine to bring not just an understanding of the Course, but also an experience of it. We have been presenting these popular weekends across the country in answer to students’ desires for a more everyday understanding of the Course, and no one is better at simplifying the complex with humor and practicality than Beverly! A Friday evening joining will set the tone for the all-day Saturday holy encounter. We hope you will join us on April 4-5, 2014 in Dallas.
We are happy to welcome Serbia as the 71st country in our database of A Course in Miracles Study Groups around the world.
A message from Beverly Hutchinson McNeff
The Dalai Lama was once asked why he didn’t fight back against the Chinese when he was exiled from Tibet. He replied with his usual humor, “because war is obsolete, you know.” Then he paused and in a more serious tone said that the mind can always rationalize fighting back…but the heart will never understand it. We would then be divided in ourselves (the heart and the mind,) and the war would be inside us.
No matter which side you find yourself on regarding the issues that face us in Syria, Israel and Palestine, or in your own personal “wars,” it is now time for us to rise to the level of the answer and not stay in the conflict. A Course in Miracles wisely suggests that we rise above the battleground for a little while each day as we do our daily lessons or simply remember the presence of God (love). From that perspective a miracle can be born and that miracle can heal what seems insurmountable, for nothing is impossible in the face of love.
I am excited to present to you this video that is the brainchild of my dear friend and sound healing pioneer, Steven Halpern. Our thirty year friendship and collaboration has produced a series of seven recordings blending the timeless message of A Course in Miracles with his healing music. Now we have joined together to create this video as a gift of healing for our planet. With Steven’s inspired music for healing in the Middle East and the peace-filled words of the Course spoken in English, Hebrew, and Arabic, we hope to allow peace to rise foremost in our consciousness for all on our planet. I encourage you to freely share this video and let us know your comments.
