There are a number of ways to access the spiritual wisdom of these teachings. Here is a brief explanation about each.
What is the REAL. CLEAR. Series?
This series of seven books offers a fresh approach to timeless spiritual teachings by way of easier-to-read language. Each book is a compilation of teachings that have been rewritten for clarity and infused with a bit of levity, because as Mary Poppins put it, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.”
What is HOLY MOLY (Book One)?
This is a remake of some of the most profound teachings about the origin of everything, including Christ’s role in all of it.
What is FINDING GOLD (Book Two)?
This is a remake of the most powerful teachings about the journey to finding ourselves.
What is BIBLE ME THIS (Book Three)?
This is a remake of Q&As regarding the Bible.
What is THE PULL (Book Four)?
This is a remake of the many teachings about the power and importance of relationships.
What is PEARLS (Book Five)?
This is a remake of 17 stand-alone teachings, each offering a unique reflection on something special.
What is GEMS (Book Six)?
This is a remake of 16 spiritual teachings selected from the final 50 or so lectures.
What is BONES (Book Seven)?
This is a remake of 19 fundamental teachings that are the foundation for doing the work of healing.
What is NUTSHELLS?
This is a collection of snippets taken from Bones, Gems and Pearls, hitting just the high points.
What is Phoenesse? What is www.phoenesse.com?
The wisdom I share is from this body of spiritual teachings, but the words are my own. To avoid copyright confusion (for example, all the information on www.theguidespeaks.org is copyrighted by the Pathwork Foundation), I created this separate website at www.phoenesse.com for sharing my own work. Phoenesse LLC—pronounced finesse—is the name of the business I have founded for publishing my books.
What is the SELF. HELP. Series?
At approximately ten pages each, the 244 lectures that collectively form this body of work create a very large amount of material—not to mention the many Q&As. It can be hard to get your arms around it all, even for people who have been studying it for awhile.
In my four years of training to become a Pathwork Helper—which is someone who works with others in applying these teachings to their life—I had the good fortune to be taught by several great teachers who had synthesized these teachings over several decades. In my own years of working with these teachings, I have developed an even deeper understanding of the bigger picture of what the Guide is presenting.
Spilling the Script: A Concise Guide to Self-Knowing is an overview that helps a person see the full scope of the journey on this spiritual path, based on what I have learned. Healing the Hurt: How to Help Using Spiritual Guidance is a summary about how to apply this material in helping others. Doing the Work: Healing our Body, Mind & Spirit by Getting to Know the Self is a broad-brush look at what it really looks like to do this work of healing ourselves through self-knowing.
What is the Pathwork®? What is www.pathwork.org?
The Pathwork Foundation holds the copyright on the collection of lectures and Q&As provided by the Guide, which are teachings about spiritual self-development. The original lectures, which were spoken by Eva Pierrakos over a period of 22 years, are available for free at www.pathwork.org. You can also find a comprehensive list of the lectures in the order they were given (with links to the lectures on the Pathwork website) here on Phoenesse.
At the end of most lectures, the Guide answered questions from people about the lecture. He also invited people to ask questions about their personal issues and about life in general. In between monthly lectures, Eva (the woman speaking the Guide’s words) also held monthly question-and-answer (Q&A) sessions during which participants could ask even more questions.
Transcripts from fourteen Q&A sessions became part of the main list of lectures because Eva sent them out to her mailing list in place of lectures when she went on vacation. The other 100 have been included on the Pathwork CD that is offered for sale in the Pathwork website store.
What is The Guide Speaks? What is www.theguidespeaks.org?
I undertook a task to read, sort and clean up all the thousands of Q&As offered on the Pathwork CD. I arranged them by topic and then I created a website for all these Q&As at www.theguidespeaks.org. It includes a Table of Contents of all the topics, with links to each topic using the right sidebar on each page. Or you can select Next Topic at the bottom of each page to read through them. Throughout the Q&As, whenever a lecture was referenced, I included a link to that lecture.
This is a lot of information, so in an effort to provide a more manageable-sized bite, I created a “Best Of” collection of the most fascinating Q&As, which creates a beautiful new perspective on spirituality. Asked and answered are hard-hitting questions about religion, Jesus, the Bible, reincarnation, the Spirit World, death, prayer & meditation, God and so much more.
And that, my friends, is what’s what.
