A Virtual Summer Retreat which explores the aftermath of Covid 19.
*The Ninth Wave - painting by Ivan Aivazovsky (1850)
The ninth wave is an old sailor’s expression that refers to a wave that is so massive and
unexpected that it can devastate any ship and its crew. The choice of this title and painting is a nod to the Pathwork Guide’s first lecture, The Sea of Life, in which he poses the question: what kind of captain are you? What better question to ask ourselves during this time.
We are in the midst of a pandemic, witnessing civil unrest and experiencing a wobbling economy. The only thing certain is uncertainty. We are in liminal space, neither in our old world nor yet in a new one. We are living through the prediction the Pathwork Guide offered us decades ago. He foretold a great influx of Divine energy coming to our planet bringing the potential for greater consciousness and love. He warned that wherever individuals and institutions were not aligned with this new energy they would experience crisis and perhaps even crumble. Are we not watching this unfold before our eyes? Certainly, we need to buckle up because this ride is not over.
In this four-day Zoom retreat we will gather as a tribe of intrepid truth seekers to explore where we are; how to make use of these precarious days; and to dive into ourselves with these questions: Who am I now? Where do I want to go? We could also pose it this way: Who are we now? Where do we want to go?
We will use teaching, process work, meditation, singing, praying, and ritual to delve into our anxieties, doubts, wildness, and stillness. Within the privacy of the Zoom platform, we will have breaks and breakouts and plenty of participation. Together we will provide comfort and wisdom for each other.
In preparation, please read the following Pathwork lectures:
Please prepare for yourself a comfortable seat, bring a pen, notebook, and a glass, plenty of water, and a change of underwear (just kidding on the last one).

Pathwork Vermont has offerings in two locations! Take a look below.
During the last year of the Helpership Development Program we will explore the deeper meaning of commitment in the Pathwork, enlisting what the Guide names as the "Force" to release stagnant negativity. A big part of the program consists of giving and receiving supervision for practice sessions to a worker and building a practice as a Pathwork Helper.
We will look at the stages of the work and how to tune into where the worker is on their soul's journey. For that we will integrate concepts from clinical psychology that a Helper needs to know about.
In addition to working with individuals we learn about the psychodynamic, energetic and spiritual aspects of working with the Pathwork in groups.
During the year students will contemplate their own unique ray of helpership, their own unique contributions to Pathwork Helpership and write about it in their senior project.This project is designed to apply the Pathwork teachings to an area of special interest or Eros in the student's life.
Leadership Skills developed in year 4:
~ Ability to assess ego-strength ~ Dreamwork ~ Ability to recognize psychological disorders and personality disorders ~ Knowing when and where to refer clients ~ Trauma work ~ Ethics and code of conduct in the counseling profession ~ Successful interviewing techniques ~ Setting healthy inner and outer boundaries.
We will gather once per month for nine months ( October - June) to inquire into the question " Who am I" and discover the wisdom and power of the Pathwork teachings.
