OCTOBER THEME
Resistance and Willingness
Helen Schucman,
Scribe of A Course in Miracles
Her Struggle as Our Struggle

Kenneth’s intimate relationship with Helen Schucman, during the eight years following her scribing of the Course until her death, gave Kenneth a unique awareness of her ongoing struggle with the source of the material, Jesus, as well as with the Course’s personally challenging message of forgiveness. Ken over the years has written and spoken in great depth about Helen’s ambivalent relationship with both Jesus and the Course as she fluctuated between resistance to Jesus and his message and willingness to be his scribe and student.

Kenneth’s sharing of personal details of Helen’s relationships is never simply to tell a story, but rather to illustrate dynamics of the process with the Course that can help its students recognize that Helen’s struggle parallels our struggle between the wrong mind and the right mind—even though the forms of our lives may look quite different from hers. The content of the struggle remains the same. And so we too can learn from her experience to accept that Jesus’ love for all of us is not conditional, but is reflected in a patience and understanding that transcends any worldly love.

A number of Kenneth’s publications on this powerful and personally compelling theme—Resistance and Willingness—are on sale for the month for October at 25% off:

Absence from Felicity: 
The Story of Helen Schucman and Her Scribing of
A Course in Miracles

Helen and I shared a deep love for one another, and for Jesus in whose love we knew we were joined, and on behalf of whose Course we had come together. It is my prayer that I am able to convey that love in these pages. In the words that Beethoven inscribed over the opening measures of his choral masterpiece MISSA SOLEMNIS: "From the heart, may it go to the heart." (From the Preface)

Helen Schucman: A Gift of God

This workshop on Helen Schucman focused on Kenneth Wapnick's intimate relationship with the scribe of A Course in Miracles for the last eight years of her life. A major part of the discussion centered on the importance of accepting people's choices for themselves, without seeking to impose our own values or belief systems on them. Only then can we see past what appear to be clouds of darkness to the light of Christ that shines so brightly in each of us. This allows us to recognize, as was so demonstrable in Helen, the universality of the split mind—wrong and right minds, and the decision maker—and the Mind of Christ.

"The Gifts of God": The Poetry of Helen Schucman

This workshop, which replaces an earlier one on Helen's poetry (1986), presents many of Helen's inspired poems in the context of their setting, their relationship with A Course in Miracles, and with Kenneth. Also included are many of Kenneth's personal reminiscences of Helen, culminating in a discussion of her death, along with a reading of her poem, “Requiem.” Of particular interest are the poems that reflect Helen's love-hate relationship with Jesus, as well as those written for special occasions such as Christmas and Easter. Every one of Helen's poems reflects the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and thus the poetry offers students another presentation of its message of undoing the ego's guilt and hate through forgiveness and love. The set also includes a separate reading by Kenneth of all the poems discussed in the workshop. 


     Peace cover you, within without the same,
     In shining silence and in peace so deep
     No dream of sin and evil can come near
     Your quiet mind. And then in stillness wake.

Forgiving Jesus: "Stranger on the Road"

The theme of this workshop is our need to forgive Jesus because he is right and we are wrong about who we truly are. This theme is discussed in the context of Helen Schucman's poem, "Stranger on the Road," which expresses her experiences of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, and reflects her conflict of despair and hope, death and life, fear and love, a conflict which practically all students of A Course in Miracles share in developing a relationship with Jesus.

Love: Dark Night and Living Flame

Drawing upon the inspired poetry of St. John of the Cross and Helen Schucman, the workshop depicts our spiritual journey from the despair of darkness to the hope-filled light of love's presence. As Jesus is the central figure on this path, we observe our projections onto him, recognizing that our guilt and anger are but thin veils that cannot truly hide our burning love for him. He is indeed our Lord, our Love, our Life, and so we pray to him:


     Come now, my Love, and save me from despair.
     The Way, the Truth, the Life are with me then.
     The journey is forgotten in the joy
     Of endless quiet and your kiss of peace.

The Gift of The Ego: Fear — The Gift of God: Love

The focus of this workshop is the prose poem, "The Gifts of God," Helen Schucman's last scribing from Jesus. This material movingly and expressively provides a summary of the core teachings of A Course in Miracles. Its primary emphasis is on allowing Jesus to help us with our fear, which seems to be connected with something in the world. In this line-by-line commentary, the cause of all fear is explained in the context of our dreaming that we have separated from God and believe we deserve to be punished as a result. The ego's gift of fear is thus ended in the acceptance of Jesus' gift of love, which leads us out of the dream and back to God.
