The Path to the Real Self (PRS)

Chapters from Eva Pierrakos' book The Path to the Real Self  (PRS) will be featured during 2014 along with supporting lectures, additional materials, and links to online short films and clips that illustrate Pathwork Principles.

The PRS was written in 1965 and gives an overview of the concepts covered in the first 140 lectures. Eva's 5-year preparation for becoming the medium for the anonymous entity known as the Pathwork Guide is described in the Preface (download below). Over 258 lectures were delivered between 1956 and Eva's death in 1979.

PRS study guides are on the 'Add'l Materials' page.

 Where the PRS has a corresponding PL reference, the study guide is also on the PL pages.

Since weekly online meetings encourage discussion and sharing instead of presentations, I film short presentations to highlight portions of the study guide. For the June topic, I used scenes from a film to illustrate the concepts.

Special Videos

Volunteers permitted recordings of first-time sessions 2014 

     Individual sessions with a Pathwork Helper are unique to both Helper and Client. Sometimes, just a few sessions can help 'untangle' our positive intentions where they have become snarled or distorted by unconscious negativity, repressed needs, or false beliefs. I take notes and sometimes make suggestions for further study; these are scanned and emailed afterwards.  I use zoom.us teleconference software, which clients can access online or by phone.  At the client's discretion. the software permits both audio and video recordings which they can download onto their own computers to review later.

     In June 2014 I offered introductory sessions to several contacts who have studied the Pathwork lectures for several years on their own. In exchange, they agreed to allow the sessions to be recorded. After the volunteer reviewed them and gave permission, these sessions were uploaded on YouTube, starting with this Introduction:

The purpose is to demonstrate how basic Pathwork concepts (such as the three listed below) might be applied to individual circumstances. Recordings may be removed at any time, at the discretion of the volunteer.
