Kenneth Wapnick Tributes
After much contemplation and discussion, Gloria Wapnick and the Foundation Staff have decided that a public memorial would not be in keeping with Kenneth's wishes. Those of you who knew him well know that he was a very unassuming man. He would want people's focus to be on living and practicing A Course in Miracles rather than on memorializing him. In addition, the Foundation is restricted in the number of people it can accommodate, so limiting attendance or holding the memorial at a location other than Kenneth's "home" is unthinkable.
At the same time, we understand the need a person has to be able to express their gratitude and respect to someone they admired and loved. To this end, we invite you to write a tribute to Kenneth in your own way, with the express understanding that all or part of your tribute may be printed in the March 2014 Lighthouse newsletter and/or posted on an upcoming Kenneth Wapnick Tributes page on our Website. If you do not want to be named as the author of your tribute, please indicate so in your typed letter.
In order to meet our publishing deadline, please have your letters mailed (no emails, please) to the Foundation no later than February 14, 2014. You may send your tribute (typed only) to:
Kenneth Wapnick Tributes • Foundation for A Course in Miracles • 41397 Buecking Dr • Temecula CA 92590-5668
Due to the untimely death of Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, the Foundation is in the midst of planning its future. All currently scheduled classes will be presented by the Foundation Staff. For those who previously registered for programs with the sole expectation of being taught only by Kenneth, you may contact our office for a full refund (951.296.6261, ext 26). The Foundation will remain fully operational with its programs and continued availability of Kenneth's teaching material. We plan on making many of his unpublished materials available in the future as well.
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 and plans are being made for a forthcoming public memorial.
"There is no death. The Son of God
is free." (W-pI.163)

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."
