47: The Wall Within

A Pathwork lesson built upon Pathwork Lecture 47 The Wall Within. It can be used by individuals or in groups.

189: Self-Identification Determined Through Stages of Consciousness

197: Energy and Consciousness in Distortion: Evil

This lecture shows how our NO to the Life Force derails our life, leading to suffering and un-fulfillment.  Crises that are necessary to resolve these YES and NO inner forces in our life are part of our evolutionary development.  (9/21/2010)

199: The Meaning of the Ego and Its Transcendence

This lecture shows how, as in the trauma of birth, we move through stages of growth that include feelings of safety, trauma, rebirth, and freedom.  Our healthy ego is necessary for this process to move smoothly.  (9/21/2010)

201 Demagnetizing Negative Force Fields

Created 7/23/08

203: Practical Ways of Dealing with Conflict

These concepts from Pathwork Lecture 203 are very useful for dealing with conflict, especially going into situations where one anticipates conflict. How could your patterns of pride, self-will, and fear come up? How could you choose to respond differently and thereby arrive at a new creative approach to a problematic and conflictual situation?

This final part of Lecture 257 speaks to the importance of openly sharing our inner feelings and our lower-self shortcomings and faults.  It also speaks to the beautiful energy that flows out of connections where this deep sharing happens.  (9/21/2010)
