The Healing Power of Kindness

By Ken Wapnick

Our Next Study for Our Study Groups

Our next series will start April 7th and we will be doing a book discussion with the book by Ken Wapnick, "The Healing Power of Kindness: Volume 1: Releasing Judgment." This is an excellent addition to our "Being Truly Helpful" theme for this year. We will only be studying Volume 1. It is available in print and on Kindle on Amazon. It is also available as an audiobook on FACIM.org.

Description: The book from Ken Wapnick, “The Healing Power of Kindness, Pt. 1 – Releasing Judgments” is devoted to the kindness of healing, in hopes of reinforcing Jesus’ message of undoing separation. Kindness reflects our inherent oneness with each other, while attack drives us still further apart in our awareness. In reviewing the principles of sickness and healing and some common misapplications, the discussion in this book helps us undo the sources of unkindness, so that in all our interactions we would reflect the Source of kindness.

Weekly Study Group Focus:
  • Week 1: What thoughts arise when you look at the title's words "The Healing Power of Kindness?" Read the Preface in study group and possibly begin "Section 1. The Kindness of Healing."

How to Prepare and Read the Book:

Each day you will be reading from the book, “The Healing Power of Kindness. When you read, you will be doing more than just “reading.” I strongly encourage you to set aside the time to do so. Try not to read ahead. Take the reading as it is assigned.
Use the following format:
  • Prepare your space to read and journal. Be sure it is quiet. Make this a sacred time, light a candle or put on meditation music.
  • Before you begin reading, meditate for at least 5-10 minutes to clear your mind and so you may be open to the wisdom.
  • After meditation, open your journal and place the date and a 1-2 sentence intention to Holy Spirit.
  • Read a few paragraphs or a page. (Be sure to spread the reading out through the week, perhaps one page a day, etc). As you read, you may wish to jot down questions, make notes or observations.
  • Close the book. Take time to reflect on what you have read. As you journal, you may wish to reflect on how you could use what you are learning in your daily life. Or, what information in the reading made an impact. You may wish to refer to your ACIM book as well.
  • The essence of your daily journaling will be shared in our sharing in each week’s class. It is important that you are focusing on how to use the material in your life and not so much the reading was “nice”, “beautiful”, or “inspiring.” A Course in Miracles needs to be applied in every aspect of our lives to make an impact. Even 10 minutes of journaling can be powerful.
