This website is dedicated to Jesus’ devoted helper and our friend and teacher, Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D. His understanding and teachings on the Course are unparalleled in depth and breadth. His example of selflessness has inspired everyone who knew him.
School for A Course in Miracles Mission
The School for A Course in Miracles in Denver, Colorado, is committed to the education and application of the teachings of A Course in Miracles.Through learning and understanding the Course through the multitudinous teachings of the world renowned authority on the Course, Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, the School’s teachers present a unified and cohesive message. We offer students a consistent alternative to the many varied points of view about what the Course says and means.
Collectively our faculty of four have studied the Course for over 120 years with Dr. Wapnick and the extensive materials he provided his students to keep the Course “on course”. Through the use of his books, CDs, and DVDs, Dr. Wapnick’s influence is found in all the offerings of the School for A Course in Miracles.
As with any spiritual path there is a strong temptation by its followers to alter the original teaching to make it easier and more acceptable, and in so doing they dilute the teachings to the point of making them ineffective. The SFACIM, formerly School of Reason, was founded by three long-time Course students in 2007, who experienced this alteration and dilution as they visited Course groups throughout the country. They joined together to create a school in Denver to preserve the original teachings and offer them to others.
SFACIM is known for offering accelerated learning programs for students and aspiring teachers of A Course in Miracles. It presents a cohesive and consistent approach to a student’s education beginning with a thorough understanding of the Course’s simple yet nontraditional metaphysics. Once this is integrated by the student he can read the Text, Workbook and Manual and recognize the meaning very quickly. This is followed by application and acceleration of the change of mind the Course aims for and a recognition of the benefits by the student as he becomes a happy learner.
For the serious student, the Course presents a lifetime practice of healing and forgiveness. SFACIM offers classes and programs for every stage of the journey. A student can see a path of Course education before him and be assured of consistency in the message and a high quality of teaching and mentoring.

The Ark of Peace
School for A Course in Miracles is organized under the non-profit 501c3, Ark of Peace, which was founded in 1990 by school director, Lyn Corona, for the purpose of extending the message of peace through forgiveness as presented by A Course in Miracles. Since the inception of the Ark of Peace, it originally had a retreat center called Heaven on Earth in Pine, Colorado; a Miracles Center (1991) on South Pearl, which later moved to 924 Logan St.; The Pearl Street Abbey, a residential community for teaching and learning the Course; The Satsang Cafe, with an upper room for Course classes; and now the School for A Course in Miracles (formerly School of Reason) and the Ken Wapnick Memorial Library– all to fulfill its mission to extend the teachings of the Course.
The Rocky Mountain Miracle Center (RMMC)
The RMMC in Denver is a separate organization, apart from the School for ACIM. The RMMC, with its own governing board, runs the Center on Monroe Street. Not all RMMC teachers represent the School for ACIM, nor see the Course from the same perspective as SFACIM.
To protect its mission to preserve and extend the teachings of the Course, consistent with the guidance and direction of Kenneth Wapnick’s teachings on the Course, the SFACIM operates as a completely autonomous entity (separate from the RMMC), subject only to the School’s own board of trustees who are united in this single purpose. The School does however offer some of its classes and workshops at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center, and we are immensely grateful to the RMMC for that opportunity.
