100: Rare Audio of Helen Schucman on Scribing A Course in Miracles

In this episode, Robert and Emily play the one recorded interview of Helen Schucman that we have. In this priceless archival recording, Helen is asked in detail about the process of hearing “the Voice” that dictated to her A Course in Miracles. And she answers with a clear attempt to describe exactly what she experienced, choosing her words carefully and making fine distinctions between what the Voice was and wasn’t like. It’s a real treat to hear Helen’s own voice here. Her personality comes through as someone strong and self-possessed, yet also conscientious, objective, and self-reflective. For all these reasons, Emily and Robert pause the recording frequently to draw out what Helen has just said or has communicated between the lines, and at times to challenge her assertions. This is a rare opportunity and we hope you will join us for this dive into the origins of A Course in Miracles in the mind of its scribe.
