Love. Courage. Wisdom.
This is your divine essence, who you really are beneath all the layers of mask, pretense, and defense.
Easy to say, but can you feel the truth of that? Or somewhere along the bumpy, twisting road of Life have you lost connection with your Real Self?
Instead, does your journey feel filled with dead ends, wrong turns, painful mishaps? Do you long for more purpose and meaning in your days? Would you like to share that most sacred and precious journey with kindred spirits?
I believe we are all continuously being called back home to our original brilliance. We are called to live life aligned with our integrity and our true power. We are here to discover and transform whatever stands in the way, and to offer our gifts to the world.
To do this we must embark on a journey below the surface of our consciousness, into the shadows of our psyche where the treasure that we are lies buried and waiting for re-discovery.
This is the place inside you that has never been wounded, broken, or tainted regardless of your life circumstances.
It’s there, shining in the shadows. Waiting for you to embrace what – on some level – you have known all along.
I am now accepting new members for the second module of this group — any adventurous souls who would dare to say “Yes!” to that call to return home to the Real Self. Together we will navigate the inner landscape of our psyche in the company of kindred spirits.
We’ll create an intimate container that will support and challenge us as we experience how the Pathwork teachings can help us peel back the layers of distortion, defense, and misconception to reveal our divine essence.
What will I find along the way?
- Uncover misconceptions from childhood that are at the root of your life’s creation.
- Gain clarity about the defenses and destructive strategies that are no longer useful.
- Strengthen your muscle to tolerate feeling and releasing painful, repressed emotions.
- Draw on spiritual support to align with your Highest Self.
- Discover the integrity and self-esteem that results from living aligned with truth.
How does the group work?
You’ll engage deeply with this material throughout the fall. You will receive 6 email teachings alternated with 6 video conference calls with Sucheta Jain, myself, and your group members.
In-between you can expect to spend approximately 1 to 2 hours a week on homework – reading, journaling, meditating, and other spiritual practices designed to facilitate an embodied understanding of the concepts.
Each email teaching will address a topic that you will have had time to read and work with privately, on your own schedule. The following week we will gather by video conference to share our insights and work further with the topic. Each week will build on previous concepts we’ve covered. Here’s what the schedule will look like:
Once you sign up, you’ll receive a welcome email with a reading assignment.
Sept 3rd: You’ll receive your first email teaching, What is the Path?
Sept 10th: We’ll join together for our first video conference call and dive deeper into this teaching. A second Lecture will be assigned at the end of the call.
Sept 24th: email teaching. The Masks We Show to the World.
Oct. 1st: video conference call.
Oct 15th: email teaching. The Pitfalls of Perfectionism.
Oct. 22nd: video conference call.
Oct. 29th: email teaching. Embracing the Inner Critic.
Nov. 5th: video conference call.
Nov. 12th: email teaching. Understanding Your Personality Type.
Nov. 19th: video conference call.
Nov. 26th: email teaching. Moving From Duality to Unity.
Dec. 3rd: final video-conference call.
All video conference calls will be held on Sundays from 2:30-4:30pm, Eastern Standard Time.
You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group where you can share what you’re learning, and receive insight, inspiration, and support from the group. Feel free to check in often, and offer your support to others as well!
Engaging in this work with others significantly increases the impact that these teachings can have in your life. Others serve as mirrors to the blind spots we just aren’t able to see, and model for us how to hold ourselves in love and compassion.
This format combines email teachings, which offer the flexibility of studying at your own pace, and video conference calls, which offer the benefit of interaction with others. The video conference calls will be recorded in case you have to miss one, but your presence is an important part of what unfolds organically on these calls, so you should set an intention to attend as many of these calls as possible. Both the emails and recorded video conference calls will be yours to keep and refer back to as you wish.
