Location: Sevenoaks Retreat Center, Madison VA
Led by: Jac Conaway, Pathwork Helper & Core Therapist
Cost: $690 for the weekend (includes room, meals and program)
The Pathwork Lectures we will focus on in this Module 2 weekend will be :
L 240 Aspects of the Anatomy of Love: Self-Love, Structure, Freedom
L 244 “Be In the World But Not Of the World” – The Evil of Inertia
Being in the World, not of it. Then why are we here? What did I do to deserve this? What am I supposed to do now? What really is ‘the world’? What is reality in it’s ‘ﬁnest’ level? Being in the World but not of it is facilitated by being as clear as possible about what the World actually is.
The Guide reminds us that as incarnate humans, we ﬁnd it diﬃcult to fully perceive the world/reality as it truly is with our human senses [see Lectures. 10, 71, 115, 128, 139, etc.] and this goes even beyond our mental distortions to the realm of the limitations of our physical senses. Most physicists will tell you the same thing [even without referring to our mental state]. Even the most cursory introduction to Relativity [Speciﬁc and General] as opened up by Albert Einstein and Quantum Mechanics as opened up by the giants of physics in the early part of the 20th century can be baﬄing as to what constitutes physical reality.
While the admonition to be in the world but not of it requires us to focus on what we can perceive of reality. we must also open to new ways of understanding what ‘The World’ really is. This pulls us to ﬁnd entirely new ways to relate to that age old question of thoughtful beings; What is reality and how do I best approach ‘knowing’ it?
