We are happy to announce this new activity – led by students – that will take place on Sunday evening during training modules: The Pathwork group. Pathwork is a spiritual and psychological path to self-knowledge and transformation through all levels of consciousness. The Pathwork lectures are an integral part of Core Energetics as they offer specific, practical tools for dissolving misconceptions, making the unconscious conscious, and activating the greater consciousness dwelling within every human soul. The intention is to connect with the content of the Pathwork lectures in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.
About Eva and Pathwork
Eva Broch Pierrakos (1915-1979) began channelling Pathwork lectures in a trance state in 1957, after years of developing herself and her gift. During her life, she channelled 258 lectures which were recorded and transcribed. The lectures can be found on pathwork.org. In 1966, John Pierrakos, a psychiatrist who developed Bioenergetics together with Alexander Lowen, came in contact with Pathwork lectures and strongly resonated with the content as he was in search of a deeper dimension of his work. He came to meet Eva and they immediately realised the compatibility between the two of them, as well as the compatibility between Pathwork and the body-oriented approach. Soon John and Eva started a loving relationship and got married. Together they developed Core Energetics, an evolutionary process that integrates Pathwork teachings with body-oriented psychotherapy.
In the preface of the book “The Path to the Real Self”, Eva shared her autobiography, writing about her first experiences of trance and how she came to the lectures. If you are drawn to know more, you can read it in full at the following link. For more information about Eva’s life through the eyes of people who knew her or who were touched by the lectures, we warmly recommend the newly published book ‘Honouring Eva’ (more information here).
About NICE Pathwork student group
In our NICE Pathwork student group, we would like to focus on the content of the lectures, their wisdom, and the meaningfulness of our personal processes. That means we will not discuss the origins of the lectures, and we respect everyone’s right to choose their beliefs (and non-beliefs). The focus is to be present for each other, without taking the therapist / Pathwork helper role. Everyone is welcome! At the moment, the organising team consists of Angela, Marcel, Sabine, and Antonela. If you want to join the organising team, let us know.
For participating in the student activity, it is needed to read a lecture beforehand and answer the questions in writing for yourself, in order to reflect on it. This time we will read and prepare lecture number 190 – Importance of experiencing all feelings, including fear – the dynamic state of laziness.
If you are struggling with understanding parts of the lecture, don’t be discouraged – just focus on what resonates with you.
Pathwork Lecture #190
- What are your methods to avoid feeling?
- Which emotions are you avoiding to feel? Which are easy to feel for you?
- How do you feel about feeling fear? Is there fear of feeling fear?
- In which aspects of your life do you recognise laziness? What could be the feelings that are unexpressed?
I want to free my life energy and my creativity.
I want to increase my potential to feel pleasure and joy.
I know that it is necessary to feel and experience all that is in me, and I am willing to do that.
I wish to become aware of my suppressed feelings, emotions, and images.
I trust my deeper wisdom that this will happen in a way I can handle.
I want to become aware of my defences, my specific ways of avoiding feelings.
I no longer want to deceive myself in any way, I want to face what is in me.
For all this, I ask my spiritual self for help and guidance.
