Helen Schucman and William Thetford in 1975 and was close to them for the rest of their lives. In addition, Tam was a beloved friend and confidant of Helen’s husband, Louis, and was chosen by him to interview thirty of Helen’s close family members and associates. With an educational background at Tufts University in writing, Greek & Roman Classics, and Comparative Religion, Tam traveled extensively in Nepal and India participating in the daily lives and practices of Buddhists and Hindus. In addition to over thirty years of service to FIP, Tam was the Editor-in-Chief and also VP of Programs for YouthNoise, a web-based non-profit organization for youth activists.

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. Over forty 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 in June, 1976 and there he met the two scribes. He became a close friend and protégé of Bill Thetford’s. In 1993 he joined the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Inner Peace. He and Tam Morgan have known each other since they were both teens and he values the many gifts she brings to her role as co-president. 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 (G&D Media, 2019), the first volume of a five book series devoted to explaining the principles of A Course in Miracles in helpful new ways. He is also the author of From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit (Hay House, 2012), which reinterprets the biblical story of Moses and Pharaoh through the lens of ACIM as a parable of the spiritual journey back to God.
Before accepting his position with the Foundation, Dr. Bob was a practicing, board-certified psychiatrist and psychotherapist with over thirty years’ experience helping individuals and couples. He is also a novelist and screenwriter, with seven feature screenplays, two options and an unproduced TV pilot to his credit.
