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.

Pathwork Lecture 242: The Spiritual Meaning of Political Systems

Plato’s ‘anthropological principle’ viewed Politics as an expression of the human soul. Rather than analyze the city as a structure arising out of the interactions of men, or as an external and lifeless entity which men inhabit, Plato analyzes the soul of the city with the same tools that are applied to an analysis of the souls of men. Wherever virtues and vices are found in the city, they can be traced back to the men who dwell therein and can then be understood on both the larger and smaller scales. (

If we look at politics today through the lens of Plato’s principle then we too have the opportunity to examine how our politics reflects our own internal world. If, for example, we look at our politics as the expression of human struggle – our urges and impulses – our conflicts and ambivalence – our power and powerlessness – our fears – our idealized self-image, our shadow and our highest self — then we create greater opportunities for improved political dialogue and real systemic change.

Read the Lecture here:

Lecture 242 embraces Plato’s premise through the exploration of different political systems – in their intended and distorted forms, and how each of these systems – in virtue and distortion – exists within us.

Join us for a discussion of Lecture 242 on Friday June 21, 2019, at Shetler Studios, 244 West 54th Street, 12 Floor, in Manhattan. We meet in Penthouse 2. at 7:00 PM.

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.

The New York Region Pathwork

Our page is to help people who are interested in the Pathwork Guide Lectures, and this path of self-knowledge and self-purification, to connect and share. The Pathwork is a melding of spirituality and psychology. It is non dogmatic, and we invite people to read the lectures and determine if they speak to you. People get together to study the lectures informally in small groups, and also work with Pathwork Helpers and with each other. People are invited to get together with other students of this path and work to find images, or wrong conclusions about life, when are often formed in early childhood and which exercise an undue influence over our lives as we grow older. The image of the stream on our Facebook page is an important metaphor for the Pathwork (the work on your path). That metaphor is that flowing life energy (the water) is obstructed by negativity, by blocks, by images, which hinder the free flowing of that creative and loving energy. The work we share is to remove the branches and boulders in the stream so that our lives can be filled with the flowing energy of love, creativity, and understanding.

Aimee Falchuk on her upcoming presentation this Friday on "The Spiritual Meaning of Political Systems"

Dependency and exaggerated independence
Identity and belonging
Materialism and Separateness
Self Rule and Personal responsibility
Fairness and equality
self expression and exceptionalism
Abuse of power
Fear, greed, envy

All of these concepts and characteristics exist in our political systems in truth and distortion be it socialism, capitalistic democracy or others.

And all of these exist in our internal realities. They live within us.

Exploring them within ourselves is a way of understanding them in our systems of government and may allow us to better understand where we can do better both personally and collectively.

Hope you will join us June 21st for a discussion of the spiritual meaning of political systems.

Address: Shelter Studios 244 West 54th. 12th floor. NY, NY. Please RSVP as space is limited. $10 donation appreciated
