Join your fellow Pathworkers as we meet to discuss Lecture 101, "The Defense." In this Lecture, the Pathwork Guide explains how many of us are in a constant state of defensiveness due to the erroneous idea that we are under attack. We react to our environment from fear, limiting our options and our perceptions.
From the Lecture: "Yet a defense mechanism, by its very nature, is a process of warding off danger. When the process is used for actual danger, it is meaningful; when it is not,your entire system is put out of balance. Your faculties are limited to a degree you cannot fully comprehend as yet. In other words, your instinct of self-preservation is at work when not required.Whenever instincts which were originally destined to meet a specific danger are used in other situations, the human psyche is distorted and put out of balance."
