Sunday, July 29th, 2018 Free Event!


Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: Serve Me Up a Slice of Grace, Please!

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.



In these challenging, divisive times, when everywhere we turn there is cruelty, hatred, and conflict, we need to stop periodically and anchor in the grace that is all around us. It’s not a gift for the privileged, or a dispensation for the chosen. Grace permeates everything that is, and awaits us in every moment. We need only be willing to receive.


Join Beth Hedquist for this month’s “A Taste of Pathwork” potluck dinner presentation, where we will make space to open to the sacred and the grace that is available to us at all times. We will also explore what prevents us from experiencing this truth.


We will be working with Pathwork Lecture 250: Inner Awareness of Grace. No previous experience with Pathwork is necessary, and it is not required that you read the Lecture ahead of time but you will get more out of the evening if you do.


After the presentation we will share a potluck meal. There is no charge for this event but if you will be staying for dinner please bring a dish to share.


Please RSVP to Beth at: bethhedquist@gmail.com




Local Pathwork Group Forming This Fall!


When: Every Other Monday, Sept. 10th – Dec. 17th, 2018

Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.

Cost: $200 if paid in full by Sep. 3rd / Late Registration: $250


At various times in Life it seems as if we have been handed a bunch of sour lemons. When we have the recipe for lemonade, we discover the sour and sweet mix together beautifully to create a refreshing taste that would never have been enjoyed had we kept them separate!


The Pathwork offers us a recipe of sorts, to accept and find compassion for all parts of ourselves. In welcoming whatever is present we find that the blending of all of these ingredients is the re-discovery of the whole – and we can fully savor the sweetness of Life!


I invite you to join me for this eight week adventure where we will explore the Pathwork journey to embracing and living from our wholeness. Through meditation, movement, discussion, and experiential exercises, we will create an intimate, supportive container that will facilitate deep transformation.


If you have been thirsting for a richer experience of life, this group is for you!


To register or to learn more, please contact me at: bethhedquist@gmail.com


Cost: $200 if full payment is received by Sept. 3rd. After that, $250.

A Sampling of Recent Events

Sunday, May 6th, 2018 Free Event! 

Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: All Fear Is Fear of the Self

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.



What is the story you tell yourself that justifies closing your heart?
What are you afraid of?

  • Rejection?
  • Abandonment?
  • Humiliation?
  • Being Controlled, Manipulated, or Used?

When you close your heart to prevent possible injury, you also close your heart to potential love and joy. And you can often miss the deeper meaning and key to the resolution of this fear, which lies within you rather than in someone or something else.


Join Beth Hedquist as we explore what the Pathwork can teach us about Fear, and how we can summon the courage to meet life – however it shows up – with love that knows boundaries, joy that is fearless, and a willingness to engage life with abundant vitality.
We will be working with Pathwork Lecture 155: Fear of Self. You aren’t required to read the Lecture ahead of time, but you will get more out of the evening if you do. We will follow the presentation with a potluck dinner, so if you are staying for the meal please bring a dish to share.

Sunday, Apr. 8th, 2018 Free Event! 

Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: Love: It’s Who You Are, Not What You Do

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.


The Pathwork Guide describes Love as a “spontaneous soul movement,” rather than an emotion or an action. When everything that stands in the way is cleared, Love is the unobstructed truth of who we are, and it naturally flows outward.

So what gets in the way? And what is the difference between real and unreal Love? Healthy and unhealthy anger? Where does fear and all of our other emotions fit in?

Join Beth Hedquist as we explore the Pathwork teachings that guide us through the maze of distortion and illusion to the depths of our true nature. We’ll be working with Lecture 133: Love: Not a Commandment, But Spontaneous Soul Movement of the Inner Self. Reading the Lecture ahead of time is not required, but you will get more out of the evening if you do.

Afterwards we’ll share a potluck dinner and continue the conversation. If you’ll be staying for the meal please bring a dish to share.

Sunday, Mar. 11th, 2018 Free Event!


Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: Connect With Your Deepest Longing

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.


  • What is your greatest longing on the spiritual journey?
  • What does your heart dare to dream of?
  • What is it that is calling you?

Often times we are thrust in to a spiritual journey because of a crisis, tragedy, or disharmonious circumstance in our lives. We are either in deep pain or deep emptiness. Walking a spiritual path can bring significant healing, comfort, and serenity. But is it possible there is something beyond contentment that is calling you? Do you feel drawn by something that cannot easily be put into words?

If so, you are not alone. Whatever your faith journey, and even if you don’t have an identified path at all, I invite you to gather with me to celebrate, share, and gain clarity around what is calling you to this unique spiritual adventure that your lifetime is.

We’ll explore what the Pathwork has to offer in realizing this longing. If you are new to Pathwork, this is a great introduction. If you have been studying the Pathwork for awhile, I challenge you to show up with beginners mind and discover what your cutting edge is today.

Realize your deepest longing. Answer the call of your heart!

Sunday, Jan. 21st, 2018 Free Event!

Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: The Spiritual Significance of Relationship

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen


While most of us are familiar with the benefits of relationship — intimacy, companionship, support, etc. — we don’t always recognize the spiritual significance of our relationships, whether they are romantic, friendship, or business relationships.

Acknowledging and honoring the opportunities for spiritual growth that are available in all relationships can open up a new way for us to engage with one another. Join me as we explore Pathwork Lecture 180: The Spiritual Significance of Human Relationship. What better way to dive into this topic than together, in relationship?

The presentation will be followed by a potluck dinner, so if you are staying for the meal please bring a dish to share.

Join me for a three week Online Pathwork Course!

Date: Jan. 29th through Feb. 18th, 2018

Event: Saying “Yes” to Your “No:” Four Steps to Overcoming Negativity




Our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and attitudes are multi-layered and multi-faceted. Often opposing motives and desires lay hidden in the unconscious. Without a thorough, intentional exploration of everything that lives in us, we may be contributing to the negative creation of our life experiences without realizing it.


This three week online course will be a deep exploration of Pathwork Lecture 176: Overcoming Negativity. You will receive three email teachings and we will come together for three video-conference calls.

Saturday, Feb. 10th, 2018 FREE Event!


Time: 5:30pm – 9:00pm

Event: Giving and Receiving: An Act of Love

Location: Mechanicsville, Va. Directions given with RSVP




The greatest gift we have to offer others is the gift of our undefended, authentic selves. When we relate to others with an open heart, we experience no separation between giving and receiving, and we see the beauty of our Divine Nature reflected in the other.

You are warmly invited to join Julia Jensen and myself for a mid-winter celebration of Love. Whatever your faith journey, let us come together in community to activate our intention to embody the Love and Light we are called to bring to this world.

We will begin with a potluck dinner, followed by a Pathwork program. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes as part of the evening will be spent outside (weather permitting).

This is a free event; it is our gift to you in gratitude for all we have received from living the Pathwork principles. No prior experience with Pathwork is necessary.

The Sacred Dimensions of the Pathwork workshop series

Date: Thursday, Jan. 11th – Sunday, Jan. 14th, 2018

Event: From Being Guided by Ego to Dancing in the Mystery

Location: Sevenoaks Retreat Center, Madison, Va.



I’m excited to announce that I have the honor of assisting Erena Bramos in this powerful workshop exploring the Sacred Dimensions of the Pathwork. I’d love to have you join us!

From Erena:

In this module we will be exploring the two distinct pulls that underlie most of our conscious experiences… the pull of the longing to be in oneness with the Divine on one hand, and the pull of the demands of being an embodied entity on the other.

Please join us as we come together to question how we can surrender to the unavoidable reality that these two forces will always coexist as long as we are alive, and how, honoring the wisdom of both, we can come out of the struggle of seeking perfection to live our lives in forgiveness of our humanness.

Sunday, Aug. 6th, 2017  FREE Event!


Time: 5:00pm – 7:30pm

Event: What is Your Relationship with Relationship?

Location: 5028 Park Commons Loop, Glen Allen, Va.

“The greatest struggle for human beings is between their desire to overcome isolation and loneliness and  their simultaneous fear of close, intimate contact with another human being. Often the desire and fear are equally strong, so that people are pulled and pushed in opposite directions.”  ~ Pathwork Lecture 138


  • Do you avoid intimacy and deep connection?
  • Do you dive in head first without testing the waters?
  • Maybe you alternate between the two?

In order to deeply meet another, we must deeply meet ourselves. In order to be loved, we have to be willing to be seen in our entirety. If you are interested in a more fulfilling relationship with yourself, others, and Life in general, you are warmly invited to join me as we explore this challenging and yet deeply rewarding endeavor. We will be working with Pathwork Lecture 138: The Human Predicament of Desire for and Fear of Closeness.

All are welcome, and you are not required to read the Lecture ahead of time, but you will get more out of the evening if you do. We will follow the presentation with a potluck dinner and socializing. There is no fee for this event but please bring a dish to share if you will be staying for dinner.

Contact me for more information about events. I hope to explore the Pathwork with you!
