On May 29, 1975, Judith Skutch met Dr. Helen Schucman and Dr. William Thetford—scribes of A Course in Miracles—along with their friend Dr. Kenneth Wapnick in their office at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, where Helen and Bill were medical psychologists. After exploring common interests, Helen and Bill revealed to Judith their well-kept secret regarding a document they had scribed called A Course in Miracles—made up of a Text, a Workbook for Students, and a Manual for Teachers.
Over the next few weeks, the group became bound together by their common enthusiasm for this remarkable spiritual teaching and began meeting regularly to study and discuss it. Within months it became apparent to them that this document was meant to be shared with all who found it beneficial or of interest. And so the decision was made—collectively and internally guided—to publish A Course in Miracles through the existing Foundation.
