How I use the Devotional Format (6/16/21)

History of and Responses to the Devotional Format of the Pathwork Lectures — (an updated version of my article in the Pathwork Foundation’s In Connection — 3/30/16)

Devotional Format accessible on International Pathwork Foundation website as stated in this article in the May 2021 issue of INConnection

Note 1: Most users of this format do NOT print them out but rather view them on their computers, tablets, or other devices. The pdf file on these devices has several attractive features I use when reading the lectures — print size, page listing for rapid navigating, word search, and making and saving your own PDF file where you can do all of the above and highlight, copy sections, etc. Why ever print?

Note 2: The Devotional Format of the lectures I have completed are also available via a Dropbox folder. Devotional Format folder
