These include 2 pages of quotes from the primary lecture or source material plus worksheets, suggestions for further self-study, tips on observing Pathwork concepts in our personal lives. There is often a list of film suggestions, with links to to online clips or shorts that may illuminate the concepts. Those who wish to share are encouraged to read the full lecture plus the study guide, but participants are only asked to read the assigned 1-3 pages each week.
2014 topics will be selected from Eva Pierrakos' manuscript The Path to the Real Self (PRS)
. The 'voice' of Eva is easy to discern in the preface, where she describes the process of developing a relationship with the Pathwork Guide. The surviving 26 chapters seem to have been written by the Guide, and even have Q&A segments like the lectures.

like the lectures, there is a holistic quality to the PRS, where once you grasp a concept you will be able to hear it referenced in all of the lectures!
The Path to the Real Self (PRS) encourages a holographic understanding of the Pathwork lectures, bringing an overall perspective to concepts that may be touched upon in 20-30 different lectures. The copyright was part of John Pierrakos' personal estate so the International Pathwork Foundation was unable to sell copies until a few years ago. When I was training to be a Helper, the chapters were made available but were considered 'advanced material'. Yet today, many Pathwork teachings that seemed radically 'new age' in the '60s or 70s have been absorbed into everyday culture. The PRS can deepen our appreciation of the individual lectures by giving them a larger context.
