A member of the Writers Guild of America West, Tamara is also a screenplay writer and has a soon-to-be-released book of interviews with Helen Schucman’s closest friends.
It is through deep guidance and inner directive that Tamara has been asked, and has accepted, to step into her current position of co-president of the Foundation for Inner Peace. She and co-president Dr. Robert Rosenthal have known each other as friends and colleagues for over forty years, since 1974.
Dr. Bob Rosenthal was introduced to A Course in Miracles on Christmas Eve, 1975 at the age of 20 by Judith Skutch Whitson. Forty-five years later, he remains an avid student and teacher of the Course, offering creative perspectives to help students deepen their understanding of the material. He was living in the Skutch’s New York home when the first hardbound edition of the Course was printed and there he met the two scribes. He became a close friend and protégé of
Bill Thetford’s. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Inner Peace since 1993. He and Tam Morgan have known each other since they were both teens. His guidance is very clear that the heart of the Foundation should rest upon a holy relationship such as theirs.
Dr. Bob is the author of From Never-Mind to Ever-Mind: Transforming the Self to Embrace Miracles and From Loving One to One Love: Transforming Relationships through A Course in Miracles. They are the first two books of a series: The Principles of A Course in Miracles. His first book, From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit reinterprets the biblical tale of Moses and Pharaoh through the lens of the Course as a parable of the spiritual journey back to God. He has written many articles on different aspects of the Course and is a popular speaker at Course-related events and online forums. He currently offers a monthly webinar on ACIM topics through the Foundation (see Events). For more information about his books and interviews please see his author website: DrBob-Author.com.
