Robert was born in San Antonio, Texas, into a devout Southern Baptist family. At the age of fourteen, he rebelled against what he saw as a fear-based teaching and began his spiritual search. In the early seventies, he went through intense transformational training with the Sunrise Ranch intentional community (Emissaries of Divine Light) near Loveland, Colorado. His training included energy healing, which he began practicing and teaching in 1973. But in a few years, he and his future wife, Amy, left the community.Robert spent the next thirty years raising a family and managing a paint contracting business, while continuing his spiritual search. In 2008 , he discovered A Course in Miracles and knew it was an effective “method” of practicing spiritual principles. And he had been looking for this.After attending Joy Schultz’s Course group, he knew he wanted to be more actively involved in the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center. He wanted to participate with other like-minded Course students and had found a spirit of welcome and friendship at the Center.Robert will be leading seminars on healing, with a focus on “hands on” learning, in conjunction with the study of Course material. email@example.com
Francis was born in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1948. In 1950, his family moved to southern Maryland and by 1961 he was one of 11 children. After a try at college, he moved to Canada to seek his fortune as a musician. His older brother introduced him to metaphysics through the writings of Edgar Cayce and Alice A. Bailey, and through astrology. After reading “The Re-Appearance of the Christ” by Alice Bailey, he studied with whatever New Age group he found in Montreal for 4 years. Upon returning to The United States in 1974, Francis joined Rev. Moon’s Unification Church, which became a hero’s journey for 25 years. Rev. Moon chose Wendy to be his wife and they were married, along with 2075 other couples, in Madison Square Garden in 1982. In 1998 they left the church together after discovering and beginning their study of “A Course in Miracles”, which they found on a bookshelf in the home of a friend. In 2004, Francis and Wendy came to Denver with their son Tolby and were introduced to The Rocky Mountain Miracle Center. Francis serves The Center as Vice President of the Board of Trustees, Building Manager and Rentals Coordinator. He is available every Tuesday morning from 9:30-11:30 to meet and chat with whoever happens to drop in. His favorite miracle reminders are, “I am here only to be truly helpful.”, and “Never forget to laugh!” You can contact Francis at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christine was born in a suburb of Lille, France and lived there during World War II. She is a war orphan whose father died for France at the beginning of the war when she was two. She has vivid memories of the war and France’s liberation. At seven she immigrated to the United States with her brother and mother and she still recalls the shock of losing her culture, family, and language.Raised Catholic, Christine clung to the Catholic Church as her only lifeline when she arrived in the U.S., hardly questioning its teachings until she married and became a mother. She then began to question the validity of the Christian god who was both loving and vengeful. This god demanded illogical obedience from his children and punished them for their ignorance and weaknesses–weaknesses he supposedly gave them to “test” them. She eventually fell away from the church and began her spiritual quest.In 1986, after much research and study, pain and misery, she stumbled onto A Course in Miracles. It resonated with her immediately. She studied the Text and worked through the Workbook three times before venturing into published interpretations, particularly Kenneth Wapnick’s work. She led groups in her home. Still, it was many more years before she understood she was trying to make the Course fit into the dualistic learning she had accumulated. Studying Ken Wapnick’s material helped her begin to comprehend the metaphysics of the Course as non-dualistic, just as the God of the Course is non-dualistic. Changing her concept of God made all the difference. Christine leads a group at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center on Friday afternoons. She leads on Sundays on a rotation basis, has served on the Board of Trustees, and is currently involved in developing The School For A Course In Miracles to benefit teachers and aspiring teachers of A Course in Miracles.

Whitney Walpole was introduced to A Course in Miracles in 2005, and she took up committed study in 2010. Raised as a Christian Scientist, practiced in metaphysics, after studying a wide spectrum of spiritual teachings and participating in many personal transformation programs, Whitney found a home with the Course in Miracles. Early in her study Whitney was introduced to Ken Wapnick’s teachings on the Course, and immediately they had a profound influence on her understanding and practice. When Lyn Corona and Chris Dixon of the School of Reason (now the School for A Course in Miracles) offered the Course Immersion Program for ACIM students, Whitney jumped in with enthusiasm to learn more about forgiveness and how to be a teacher of God. Whitney now shares her love of the Course through the School for A Course in Miracles and is honored to continue her learning and practice of forgiveness with the fellow students around her.
Meribeth was born in England and immigrated with her family to the United States in 1952. Her family was very involved with the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (now Community of Christ Church) with its headquarters in Independence , Missouri . In 1983, Meribeth and her young family moved to the Colorado mountains where nature and the beautiful outdoors became her main place of worship. In 2002, after a divorce and her two sons grown, she decided to move to Maine where her desire to find her spiritual path began to manifest. On her way to Maine she had prayed, “Help me find my way home…wherever that is anymore.” It was in Maine, where due to her own physical difficulties, she discovered Reiki and soon was lead toA Course in Miracles. Meribeth studied the Course on her own until she returned to Colorado in 2006. In 2007 she moved to Denver and saw a notice that Gary Renard was going to be speaking at Rocky Mountain Miracle Center and decided to check it out. It was the right time to find others with like minds to discuss the ideas and truths from ACIM which resonated within her. From the first time she stepped through the doors of RMMC, it felt like home to her.
Tim Wise was first introduced to the Course by a friend in Baltimore, Maryland in 1985. In August 1991, he began attending Ken Wapnick’s seminars at Ken’s foundation in Roscoe, New York. Since then he has gone to dozens of Ken’s seminars both in Roscoe and Temecula. He has also attended more than 1500 Course meetings all over the states, and has facilitated Course study groups in seven states.
At one point, before the Foundation’s move from New York to California in 2001, he owned and listened to (multiple times) hundreds of all the Foundation’s recordings. He believes the practice of forgiveness (as defined by the Course), in all his relationships, is the mission in this life. He sees his life’s “work” as extending the teachings of the Course in all situations, sometimes verbally, but primarily by demonstrating them. This includes sharing his Course experiences at meetings and seminars, and learning from the experience of others. He sees late Dr. Kenneth Wapnick as the number one teacher of the Course in his own life and worldwide. For years he has also studied and applied both the Enneagram system and has worked the 12 step recovery process. His experience in those areas has been, and continues to be, expanded and deepened by the application of the Course’s principles.He helped initiate and now manages the Ken Wapnick Memorial Library at the RMMC. He is tremendously excited to be part of RMMC and its mission of sharing the Course’s teachings with all those interested. In all of his many extensive travels, he considers the RMMC to be one of the two best places on the planet to learn and understand the Course, the first being Ken Wapnick’s Foundation for A Course in Miracles in Temecula, California.
