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

by Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.

"This is a course in miracles, please take notes."

This is how the scribing of A Course in Miracles began, in October 1965. For the next seven years Helen Schucman, a clinical psychologist in New York City, heard the voice of Jesus dictate to her the three volumes that comprise one of the most significant spiritual messages of our time. Absence from Felicity is the story of this dictation, set in the context of Helen's lifetime search for God, and the conflict between her spiritual nature and her ego. The author writes that this conflict

symbolized both sides of Helen's personality, and reflected the same ambivalence we all share regarding our relationship with God and with the person of Jesus.... In chronicling the development of this personal conflict, and its ultimate resolution, I thus am writing everyone's story.

Kenneth Wapnick, drawing upon his intimate relationship with Helen that spanned the last eight years of her life, highlights in detail Helen's scribing of the Course, her experiences of Jesus, and her relationship with William Thetford, close friend, colleague, and collaborator in the scribing of the Course material. The book includes extensive excerpts from Helen's own recollections, her dreams and letters, and the personal messages and instructional material she received from Jesus that was an integral part of the original dictation of the Course — all never before in print.

Above all, Absence of Felicity is a book of love. As the author's preface closes:

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."
