I discovered there actually was a documentary film made as to how A Course in Miracles came about.
I love that book. I love the story as to how it came about. I've read pretty much everything there is to read as to that development, but it was great to actually hear and see the people involved as presented in this documentary.
Helen Schucman was an amazing psychic. Reading the story, if you have any psychic gifts at all, will validate your experiences.
She was fore-mostly an academic, a scientist, and her own psychic gifts appalled her. The fact that a voice spoke to her, had her take down the Course, that she was a channel was scandalizing to her. She struggled her whole life with being a channel for the Course, with that entire side of her being.
All this was taking place in New York in the early 60s, a time when very little existed in the general public about clairvoyance, the paranormal or any of the psychology we have today. It's tough being at the front of a new wave of consciousness.
This is a great documentary about the entire experience and the content of the book.
