Have favorite topics or interests? Here's a Google Search TiP:

In Google search: copy and paste the following sentence into the search box:

        "your phrase" site:pathwork.org/lectures 

Replace the words -- your phrase -- with the word or phrase you are searching for

(remember to keep the quotes)

Google will return a list of every lecture your word or phrase appears in.  
Too many?  Try again with a different phrase! 
This search format is useful because it reads every pdf that can be downloaded from a website. For instance, you could type in "124" site:janrigsby.com and find any reference to PL 124 in any of the study guides on this website. 

Being Present with Ourselves and Others 
Real-time interaction is necessary when exploring deeper levels of aversion or resistance to spiritual concepts. We speak truth more often than we may realize. In casual conversation, we can bury such revelations by changing topics or surrounding them with superficial, distracting details.  In written communication, we may immediately edit out or soften discrepancies, illogical rationalizations, and exaggeration.
When we speak in any group setting where there is a conscious, positive intention for self-development, we allow others to hear us on multiple levels: mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic (underlying currents that we may not be fully aware of). Words spoken within a safe, respectful container can echo back to us, so that we hear ourselves more clearly. It is harder to disguise judgment, negativity, desperation, and fear. It becomes easier to recognize positive intention and feel the divine spark within ourselves and others. The limitations of working solely through one sensory dimension (hearing) can help develop other senses. We manifest a positive intention to grow and transform.
By listening to others -- in any situation -- we can practice hearing multiple layers, notice discrepancies or contradictions, and feel into the universal experience of being an imperfect human being. It's not easy to 'just listen'! It takes self-discipline and practice. It can be a form of active meditation.
Individual Sessions, Group Teleconferences, Private Process Groups
Jan has been exploring distance learning since 1998.  During 2008-2010 she created audio and video presentations which may be downloaded, along with study guides and worksheets.  In 2012 she experimented with self-led formats based upon 12-step principles.  She has developed formats for online teleconference discussion groups and facilitates online private process groups, as well as offering individual sessions by phone or online.
Please see www.pathworksteps.org for current details, meeting outlines and notes,, study guides, and schedules for groups which are open to the public. These meetings are free for those who agree to attend regularly via teleconference phone lines. You may also access the US based landline via Skype premium, Google Voice, or VOIP software. Smaller process-based groups would be closed (members only) and fees would apply. Group video conferencing requires broadband access, and free software (such as Zoom) is not as easy to use as a teleconference line.
