Description


“The gift of Eva Pierrakos’s Pathwork has been with me for twenty years. It is the deepest and most effective spiritual work I have found, and it has helped me realize my dreams. Each time I read it, I am amazed at the depth and breadth of wisdom and love it teaches. It is a practical way of truth that will change your life.”—Barbara Ann Brennan, author of Hands of Light

For more than twenty years, Eva Pierrakos was the channel for a spirit entity known only as the Guide. Combining rare psychological insight with an inspiring  ision of human possibility, the Guide's teachings, known as the Pathwork, have influenced many key New Age thinkers who have studied at Pathwork centers in the United States and abroad. Now, the core teachings of the guide have been collected in one volume synthesizing the essential wisdom of the Pathwork.

Under such headings as “The Idealized Self-Image,” “The Forces of Love, Eros, and Sex,” “Emotional Growth and Its Function,” “Real and False Needs,” and “The Spiritual Meaning of Crisis,” the Pathwork outlines the entire process of personal spiritual development. Unlike many over-idealized philosophies, the Pathwork confronts our devils as well as our anges, our all-too-human failings and petty ego concerns as well as our divine strengths. It shows us how to accept ourselves fully as we are now, and then ot move beyond the negativity, or “lower self,” that blocks our personal and spiritual evolution. It offers a practical, rational, and honest way to reach our deepest creative identity.

“I would advise that this book be read with a willingness to take time to digest what the Guide says. This is not ‘light’ reading, thought it is Light reading, I assure you. I find an enormous compatibility between these lectures and Emmanuel's teachings. What a wonderful gift to a wonderful world.”—Pat Rodegast, author of Emmanuel’s Book

About the Author


Eva Pierrakos was born Eva Wassermann in Austria in 1915. She grew up in Vienna during the political unrest of the post–World War I years while the darkness that was about to descend and culminate in World War II was gathering over Europe. However, Eva loved life, nature, animals, the pleasures of dancing and skiing and of friendship. She was able to leave Austria and lived for a while in Switzerland before settling down in New York. During this time she became the channel for a highly developed spirit guide who gave the series of lectures from which this volume was compiled. Hers is the perennial story of transmitters of spiritual truth: first, astonishment at the manifestation of the gift, then reluctance to accepting it, finally, humbly taking on the task with total commitment. Quietly, she drew to herself an ever-growing number of people who became attracted to the path of self-transformation taught by the Guide. From the materials of these lectures Eva Pierrakos developed The Pathwork, a psychological method which leads to the Godself through facing and transforming the lower self.Eva died in 1979, leaving behind her the rich legacy of 258 Guide lectures, two flourishing Pathwork centers, and thousands of students and followers of the teachings which she transmitted with such devotion for twenty-five years.
