NEW Workshop: June 28 – 30th, 2019

Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30
Facilitated by Renee Whatley

Based on Lecture  #155:  Fear of Self-Giving and Receiving.  In this workshop we will:

  • Let go of beliefs and misconceptions that limit our access to abundance, creativity and pleasure; and,
  • Experiment with “new ways of being” that open the doors to greater creativity and pleasure in our lives.

#155 Lecture Quotes:
To the degree you let go and give up a self-centered, selfish, self-pitying or self-destructive attitude, fear of self automatically decreases . . . The creative powers begin to function . . . the intense pleasure of following the natural movement will fill your being.

As long as you fail to let go of the self-imposed restrictions, you not only make giving impossible, you make receiving equally impossible.

Your refusal to let go of the negativity and the refusal to give of yourself makes you unable to receive pleasure, delight, happiness – often even material success.

Friday, June 28, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Pittsburgh Pathwork Workshop


A Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday Workshop

The aim and practice of the Pathwork is to savor life. To fully savor life, we need to meet it as it is experienced in the moment, in an undefended way. This means that in that moment, we have access to a full range of feelings in response to the pleasant and unpleasant situations that life delivers. Our feelings are the portal to our deeper True Self.

Most of us experience fear or other unwanted feelings of pain, rage, fear, loneliness or despair, and so we block this organic movement of the feeling body. This blocking not only limits our capacity to be fulfilled, but also attracts stronger and stronger doses of what we have denied and avoided.

Brian O’Donnell is one of the most in-demand Pathwork Helpers in the world. He resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan and regularly leads Pathwork workshops and advanced trainings all over the globe.

Don’t Fence Me In! But Who Built the Fence?!

Fences Pathwork WorkshopA One Day Pathwork Workshop

Saturday, Nov. 7 – Pittsburgh, PA

Pathwork Lecture #128 “Fences Man Puts Up Through Limited Illusory Alternatives”

Led by Philadelphia Pathwork Region Helpers Carol Day and Mary Elliott

  • Where do you feel helpless in creating what you want?
  • Where do you want to grow in your life?
  • Where do you want to grow in your Pathwork?
  • What’s next for you? How do you get there?

We will work with all this and more! Please join us in the process of taking down the illusory fences that limit our lives and enter new territory — by identifying resistances, images, vicious circles, and by connecting the dots between cause and effect, so that you can be the positive creator you actually are.
