Foundation for Inner Peace
Founded in 1972 by Judith Skutch and Robert Skutch "and chartered under the State of New York's nonprofit organization laws, the Foundation for Inner Peace was initially called Foundation for ParaSensory Investigation. This early name reflected the Foundation's educational interest and support of parapsychological research in academia at the time.
"On May 29, 1975, Judith Skutch met with 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."
