The Path Beneath Our Feet

pathwork.jpg

To be honest, I’ve not read any of Eva Pierrakos’ books, but when I worked at a metaphysical bookstore during the 90’s and early 00’s, several of my favorite customers swore by her stuff. Stumbling around the Internet just now, I found that the complete Pathwork lectures are now available in .pdf format, and thought I’d forward the info here.

What is Pathwork? Read on:

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 a collection of teachings that helps 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.

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 has no required belief system and does not ask that we abandon religious practices or beliefs that nurture and support us. It does ask us to be willing to examine our beliefs, and to accept the ultimate authority of the true Self. Pathwork also 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 it can look beyond itself and recognize that it is only a part-albeit a vital 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 Real Self, our Godself.

If any of you have experience with Pathworking, please give us a report in comments!

    No experience! But I find it interesting that contemplative practice through meditation, journaling, prayer and guided imagery is attracting people of all ages. I just received a brochure from the New Mexico Conference of Churches featuring a “conscious aging” movement inspired largely by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi whose book, Aging to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older, captures the vision.

    Reinforced by resources coming from all directions, I think I will check out the Pathwork material.

    Oh. I forgot to mention a web site:www.sage-ingguild.org .

    Thanks for the link, Hawk.

    Zalman Schachter-Shalomi teaches here in Boulder at Naropa University, which was co-founded by Chogyam Trungpa and Allen Ginsberg. Several of my teachers during the past 15 years either teach there or have done so in the past. If it wasn’t so expensive (there goes my “scarcity consciousness” again!), I’d have long ago sought an advanced degree from there.

    Mike: I just checked out available books by Pierrakos and found a couple of them now being translated into Spanish. I ordered Encontrando a Dios en mi interior: Pathwork en el lenguaje del alma, and Del miedo al amor: El Metodo Pathwork para transformar la relacion de pareja.

    Excellent, Hawk! Let us know what you think of her work. Like I said, I’ve heard great things about it….
