La Jolla Branch
Gloria Wapnick and the Foundation staff wish to extend their profound gratitude and best wishes to Bob and Kathy Draper who will be retiring and closing the Foundation's La Jolla branch on August 1, 2014. Without all their help over the past 30 years, there would not have been a Foundation at all. We are deeply grateful to them. As the Course states, "Love is the way we walk in gratitude."

Foundation for Inner Peace
The Foundation for Inner Peace, our sister organization, is the publishing arm of the Foundation for A Course in Miracles. Its purpose is to print and distribute the only authorized manuscript of the A Course in Miracles, as appointed by its scribe, Dr. Helen Schucman. To date, the Foundation for Inner Peace has published nearly two and a half million volumes of A Course in Miracles which are in circulation worldwide. The Foundation for Inner Peace describes their function and work in these words:
"Along with the publication of the Course in English, the Foundation for Inner Peace has a Translation Program. In partnership with Dr. Kenneth Wapnick as teacher of the Course's content, FIP has shepherded the translation and publication of the Course into nineteen foreign languages. This includes translations published in Afrikaans, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovene, Spanish, and Swedish, with more to come. Together these translated editions, along with the original English version, allow about 90 percent of the world's population to study the Course, while those still in process, when published, will bring this figure to nearly 93 percent.
The popular website of the Foundation for Inner Peace contains basic information about what A Course in Miracles is, how it came into being, and what it says. It provides a firsthand, authentic account of what the Course is and the extraordinary story behind it, including its scribes, its purpose, what it offers, and the activities which have evolved and are evolving around it. Interactive "Online Lessons" are available, as well as the biographies of the various translators of the Course.
In addition, in partnership with the Foundation for A Course in Miracles, an archival site for the Course has been created. ACIM-Archives offers you original and authentic material from the Foundations' historical collection, most of which has never before been released."
