New: Who Was Eva Pierrakos?
Pathworker Paul Paquette, at the International Pathwork Conference in Rio last month, presents his painstaking research about Eva Pierrakos, who channeled the Pathwork Guide. What do we know about Eva, before she gave the first lecture in 1958? Paul sums it up:
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.

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.
