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:
"The God Image"
A Pathwork Fellowship and Discussion
On Friday, January 5, at 7pm.
The Guide asserts that a child's image of God is often formed by his/her early experiences of authority. A child who experiences authority as prohibitive or hostile; or as overindulging and permissive; or as unjust, severe or punishing may form such image of God – and by extension, life – respectively.
These formed images are important to bring to consciousness as they often play out throughout the lifespan and shape our understanding and experience of life and how we approach it.
This presentation is less theological and more an invitation for introspection about our images – our core beliefs – how they formed, whether they are indeed true, and the impact they have on our life.
Join us Friday, January 5th, 2018 at 7pm at Shetler Studios, 244 West 54th Street, 12th floor, NYC. Admission is free.
Aimee Falchuk, MPH, M.Ed. Is a Pathwork member, therapist and emergency services clinician. Aimee is the founder of Core Boston, The Falchuk Group, and a contributing writer for Goop. Join Core Boston on Facebook to be part of the discussion.

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.
