It's been 60 years. On March 11, 1957, Eva Pierrakos (then Eva Broch) channeled the first Pathwork Guide Lecture, "The Sea of Life." Since then, the Pathwork has provided inspiration to spiritual seekers all over the world. Our Pathwork is a meeting of Eastern and Western spirituality. It stresses acceptance, and also action. It invites us into self-confrontation, of our negativity and destructiveness, but also invites us to celebrate the Divine Spark, the Godself within.

Our Next Event:
"Our Daily Review"
Lecture 17: The Call -- Daily Review on Wednesday, October 4, at 7pm.
In Lecture 17, the Pathwork Guide gave us a valuable tool to help us see the progress of our inner growth and perceptions: The Daily Review. Not a diary, it is a way to reflect on the events of the day.
From the Lecture: "The daily review should be conducted in the following manner: Let the whole day pass in front of your eyes and in your memory; think of everything that has happened and has given you, in some way, a disharmonious feeling or reaction. And no matter how wrong the other person may have been, the moment you have been negatively touched by it, there must be something wrong within you. Write down in a few words the occasions, your reactions and associations. If you follow this practice through for some time to come, and not just once or twice, but faithfully, you will see after a while a clear pattern emerging. At first, these disharmonious incidents will appear entirely unconnected and isolated; they will be meaningless for you. Later on you will begin to sense and, in time, clearly understand the pattern. This will help greatly. You should pray for enlightenment and guidance every time you conduct the daily review."

On October 13th, Join us for an exploration of Pathwork Lecture 248, "Three Principles of Evil."
With Pathworker and Core Therapist Aimee Falchuk.
Pathwork Lecture 248 explores three principles of the forces of evil.
The first principle is separation — the way we see ourselves as separate from one another — ways we say no to connection. The ways we divide ourselves up — not through recognizing and honoring our differences — but in a way that disconnects us from our collective humanness.
The second principle is materialism: Our extreme reliance on it, its use to distract us, and its potential for abuse of nature.
The third is a bit more nuanced. It describes evil as embodying or inflicting on others distortion, confusion and half-truths. The way in which we create a kind of haze so we do not have to take real responsibility.
Join us as we explore the concepts of this lecture and their impact on our personal and collective experience.

What is the Pathwork? Read Guide Lecture 204.
The Pathwork is a spiritual path of self-purification and self-transformation on all levels of consciousness. It emphasizes the importance of recognizing, accepting, learning to know and ultimately transforming our Lower Self or shadow side of our nature. Pathwork helps us understand that through honest self-examination, with carefully applied tools and practices, we can overcome and remove the inner obstacles that keep us from living fully from and in our Godself, our true nature.
The Pathwork is not dogmatic. It bridges psychology and spiritual practice. It places the greatest emphasis on freedom and self-responsibility. It does ask us to be willing to examine our beliefs, and to accept the inner authority of the Higher Self.
The Pathwork encourages us to develop a healthy, mature ego. For it is only when the ego is strengthened, and purified of its misconceptions about life and its own task, that we can go beyond it and understand that the ego that wills, plans, and controls is only a part of our greater self. By using the ego to transcend itself, we are afforded a way to become fully and consciously who we are: our Godself or higher self.
We all yearn for deeper, more loving relationships, and we all want more physical pleasure, vitality, and abundance. Ultimately, we want a sense of purpose for our lives that only comes with intimate contact with God.
The Pathwork is based in a collection of teachings (the Pathwork Lectures) that help us see and understand ourselves, enabling us to gradually remove the obstacles that keep us separate from others, separate from the source of our creativity and life energy, from our divine core.
