Thetford, 42, Professor of Medical Psychology at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City as well as Director of the Psychology Department at the Presbyterian Hospital, and Helen Schucman, 56, a psychologist in the department..."

I heard about then attended a music concert in Seattle that introduced a new Symphoney entitled: Journey Without Distance.

SERIOUS READERS, I do believe:
JOURNEY WITHOUT DISTANCE is a required reading for ANYONE interested in seriously reading ACIM.
