HELEN SCHUCMAN, BILL THETFORD, PAUL NORMAN TUTTLE
COURSE IN MIRACLES (ACIM)
Raj/Jesus (as Jesus) originally "channeled" (spoke) through Helen Schucman, who was a professor of psychology at the Columbia School of Medicine in New York City. Raj/Jesus was the Voice who dictated the URTEXT of A Course In Miracles (ACIM) through Helen, who took it down in shorthand. Helen began taking this dictation in 1965. Her University boss, Professor Bill Thetford, first typed up the original URTEXT from Helen's shorthand. This URTEXT included three volumes: ACIM TEXT, ACIM WORKBOOK and ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS. (The Clarification of Terms was dictated and typed much later, approximately in 1976.)
on Jesus' instructions, Bill typed an edited HLC ("Hugh Lynn Cayce")
version of the Course. In the Fall 1972, this version was given to Hugh Lynn
Cayce (son of Edgar
Cayce), who was Bill's friend, for his "evaluation."
In September 1975, a version called the Criswell Edition was widely distributed to hundreds of people. The Criswell Edition did not contain the Introduction or Clarification of Terms.
The HLC version, which included the Text, the Workbook and Manual for Teachers, was further edited by Helen Schucman and another psychologist, Kenneth Wapnick. The First Edition of ACIM was published in June 1976. The Second Edition of ACIM was published in 1985.
Late in 2004, the Criswell Edition of ACIM (which did not include the Introduction or Clarification of Terms) was declared (in New York by Judge Sweet) to be in the public domain because the original 1975 copyright was invalidated on the basis of extensive, prior-to-copyright, un-copyrighted, free distribution of the Criswell Edition.
By now (2007), millions of copies of A Course In Miracles (both First and Second Editions) have been sold around the world in lots of languages.
Helen died in 1981 and Bill in 1988.
The HLC Text has now been included in two privately published versions of the Course:
(1) The Sparkly Book includes the ACIM HLC Text, ACIM Workbook and ACIM Teacher's Manual.
(2) Jesus' Course in Miracles (JCIM) contains only the HLC Text (not the Workbook or Manual for Teachers).
ON RAJ/JESUS/PAUL TUTTLE MATERIALS
1982 Jesus has "channeled" (spoken) through Paul Tuttle (who
lives in Kingston, WA) because very, very few of us can communicate with Jesus directly,
at least on an open two-way basis. Jesus initially called himself Rajpur
because Paul would never have believed he was communicating with Jesus, and the
name, which Paul had abbreviated to Raj, has stuck. However, Raj has identified
himself as Jesus many times and he has given detailed accounts of his life on
earth, including his birth 2000 years ago, the crucifixion and the resurrection.
This material from Jesus is spiritually profound.
2002 Raj/Jesus, as the author of ACIM, has been
illuminating and commenting on the Text of ACIM.
Known as the ACIM Study Group with Raj, these audio
sessions are broadcast on the internet to people in 35 countries on
Saturday or Sunday evenings, Pacific Time (go to: www.nwffacim.org
). Most of this material is
now also available (free) as audio MP3s, and/or as Transcripts from the
NORTHWEST FOUNDATION FOR "A COURSE IN MIRACLES" website at:
www.nwffacim.org or from www.rajdownloads.com
Pamela Parnell (see below and Q3A), Sun-Rose, Janis and others have also helped with these Transcripts.
you heard of Paul Norman Tuttle and Raj? Paul channels Raj who is actually
Jesus, and this channeling has been in progress since 1982. The Organization is
the Northwest Foundation for A Course in Miracles (NWFFACIM), located in
Kingston, Washington. Once you hear this channeled information you will know it
is every bit as profound as A Course in Miracles [ACIM].
There are hundreds of tapes of Raj/Jesus speaking, which are also available in the condensed MP3 audio CD format. Much of this audio material is also in transcript form.
and Paul used to have two kinds of meetings. The RAJ GATHERINGS, which went on
for about two decades, were always in a "Question and Answer" format.
Both Janis and I have asked Raj/Jesus questions at Gatherings and received his
answers. If you want to hear or download the pre-1997 Gatherings in MP3 audio
format (MP3s made from audio tapes by Janis) visit Dave Angwin's Website (see below).
Post 1997 Gatherings are available for listening or download on Paul Tuttle's
NWFFACIM Website (see below).
current kind of Raj Meetings are on the internet on Saturday or
Sunday evenings. These are the A COURSE IN MIRACLES STUDY GROUPS during which Raj
explains and interprets the TEXT of ACIM. You can listen to these ACIM Study
Groups by joining the Raj-cast Live on the internet on Saturday or Sunday evenings
beginning around 7—9pm Pacific time, at the NWFFACIM site listed below. There
is also a video format for those with fast computers and DSL or Cable. A streamed
audio recording of these ACIM TEXT Study Group Meetings can be found on
the internet NWFFACIM Site all through the following week.
The MP3 files from the Foundation website (see next paragraph)
can be downloaded and put on CDs. Sixty or so tapes fit on one MP3 CD-ROM, so there is a
great economy of time and materials here if you play them on your computer
and/or invest in an MP3 CD-ROM player available in many stores. On these tapes
(done at Raj/Jesus Gatherings and Meetings since the 1980's) and in his
"Raj" books, Raj/Jesus talks about everything under the sun from
Atlantis to the crucifixion, from dinosaurs to dolphins!
Tuttle's own site is: http://www.NWFFACIM.org
Much of the material is only on audio, which means you have to sit at the
computer to listen. Of course, you can download the audio and listen to
can also download a selection of VIDEOS and Audios of the Raj ACIM Study
Group Meetings at: http://www.rajdownloads.com
This site belongs to Dave Angwin. Dave
also has all Janis's Audio MP3s of most of the pre-1997 Raj Gatherings available
for listening or for downloading. Of course "dial-up" download is
slow, so it is best with DSL or Cable connections. Janis's Digs (a wide
variety of Raj
transcript specific word searches) are also available on Dave's website.
Yet another website is: http://pamelaparnell.homestead.com/index.html Pamela is a Raj/Tuttle fan and her website also has two Raj/Jesus/Paul books on it -- as well as many old Conversations, Newsletters and Gathering transcripts, etc.
All this material is free and, although copyrighted to prevent
alteration, anyone can copy it and distribute it without charge.
If you use any of the Raj/Jesus materials it would be very kind to send a
regular monthly donation to:
Norman Tuttle, NWFFACIM, P.O. Box 1490, Kingston, WA 98346
reason is that the Northwest Foundation for A Course in Miracles depends entirely
on loving donations for all its income—which is needed to keep all the
Raj/Jesus materials freely flowing to everyone.
