Pamela's Biography

 

Rev. Pamela Whitman tried to avoid being a minister since she was a young child. She did not like church and just wanted to be a flutist. Then she wanted to use her career as a flutist to teach peace. Eventually, A Course in Miracles took over her life. She succumbed and became a minister of A Course in Miracles who also plays the flute professionally. It was early 2013 when Whitman was finally ordained as A Course in Miracles Minister through the Community Miracles Center in San Francisco, CA. (Are you happy now, God?) Rev. Pamela is a member of the Course in Miracles Society and Facilitates the Daily National ACIM Workbook Conference Call and Weekly National "ACIM Happy Hour" Call. Pamela joyously leads a group of dedicated Course students at Unity by the Shore in Neptune, New Jersey. She is a guest speaker and soloist at New Thought Churches along the East Coast. She has made guest appearances with bestselling-authors Marianne Williamson (“A Return to Love”) and Don Jose Ruiz (“The Fifth Agreement”).

Rev. Pamela’s interfaith, intercultural productions for live, radio and television audiences have touched over 250 million people in over 113 countries through such diverse outlets as Nepal Television (NTV); Carnegie Hall in New York; The Himalayan Hard Rock Café; The House of Blues in Hollywood; Young Asia Television and at Indian Reservations, spiritual centers and performing arts centers.

As a broadcaster she has written, hosted and produced Course in Miracles radio programming (Miracles and The Miracle Revolution) in live, pre-recorded, webcast and remote live radio broadcast locations in Asia, Central America and The United States for ten years.  Whether broadcasting live from the Rainforest in Costa Rica on Unity.FM, over the air from the Himalayan Broadcasting Company in Kathmandu, Nepal or to weekly listeners on 91.7 FM WFLR Pomona in New Jersey, Pamela Whitman has shared a message of inner and outer peace, incorporating music, prayer, guided meditation and love.

Whitman created and directed the multi-cultural, world-rock band WorldColor which toured nationally for fourteen years as an artistic affirmation of a Native American peace prophecy. The band united musicians from the four directions of the earth and educated audiences about world cultures through traditional world music, visual arts and original rock with a message of world peace. Whitman led WorldColor in a three-year cultural exchange with the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. The project was the subject of a “Young Asia” (YATV) television documentary that aired in seventeen Asian countries. Whitman collaborated with Nepal TV, Nepal Forum for Environmental Journalists and Vista Entertainment in the creation of two environmentally themed music videos for Nepal. In 2002 Artists for a Better World honored Pamela in an international award ceremony in Hollywood for her humanitarian work as an artist.

Pamela earned her degree in Flute Performance from the University of Michigan. In the summers she enjoys playing classical favorites by the sea in the Ocean City Pops Orchestra in New Jersey, where she has been the Principal Flutist since 1989. She is a descendent of great American poet Walt Whitman.

 

Quotes

"For Pamela, music is a beautiful medium to reach God. She touches the human soul with her flute."

(New Generation Magazine, Nepal)

"Flutist Pamela Whitman is of that rare breed who can breathe life back into Bach, Debussy and Telemann, for those of us who can enjoy the great performances, but are left with polite acknowledgment for the vast majority of resurrected classical composition...Pamela's "Solo Flight" is an example of her ability to communicate formidable ideas."

(Music BIZ Magazine)

"Miss Whitman has found a way to consistently present new and unique musical visions, based on the sounds and styles of diverse and time honored indigenous cultures world wide."
