About Jill Loree

Jill Loree grew up in northern Wisconsin with parents who embraced their Norwegian, Swedish and German heritage. Foods like lutefisk, lefse and krumkaka were prepared every Christmas. And of course there was plenty of beer, bratwurst and cheese all year round. She would go on to throw pizzas and bartend while attending college at the University of Wisconsin, and then moved into a career in technical sales and marketing. She would settle in Atlanta in 1989 and discover that the sweet spot of her career would be in marketing communications. A true Gemini, she has a degree in chemistry and a flair for writing. One of Jill’s greatest passions in life has been her spiritual path. Raised in the Lutheran faith, she became a more deeply spiritual person in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) starting in 1989. In 1997, she was introduced to the wisdom of the Pathwork Guide, which she describes as “having walked through the doorway of a fourth step and found the whole library.” In 2007, she completed four years of training to become a Pathwork Helper, and stepped fully into her Helpership in 2011. In addition to offering individual and group sessions, she has been a teacher in the Transformation Program offered by Mid-Atlantic Pathwork. She also led marketing activities for Sevenoaks Retreat Center in Madison, Virginia and served on their Board of Trustees. In 2012, Jill completed four years of kabbalah training and became certified for hands-on healing using the energies embodied in the tree of life. She began dedicating her life to writing and teaching about personal self-development in 2014. Today, Jill is the proud mom of two adult children, Charlie and Jackson, and is delighted to be married to Scott Wisler. She’s had more than one last name along the way and now happily uses her middle name as her last. It’s pronounced loh-REE. In 2022, Scott joined her full time in their mission to spread the teachings of the Pathwork Guide far and wide.

Is the truth hard to find?

You could say that the search for untruth—and more importantly, for how to correct it— is the whole point of incarnating. But how? Where do we even start? Believe it or not, the most logical place to search for the truth is to look for the untruth. We start by facing ourselves as we are right now. Where are we struggling? What in our life hurts? Where is there disharmony, conflict, unhappiness? For these are not random, unfortunate fates we can’t control. Rather, they are the natural results of untruth. And we only need to turn and face into our difficulties to realize this.

What do you hate?

Hate is a very empowering feeling. It lights us up. The fact that it is so energized makes it very hard to just let go of our hate. But hate is never aligned with the truth of who we are. Since, at our core, we all shine the most beautiful rays of love. And we feel much, much better when love is what lights our fire. So if our goal is to feel love, we must get to the bottom of our hate.

Cracking open the Pathwork Q&As

If you’ve ever read a Pathwork lecture, you know that most of them end with a handful of Q&As, or questions and answers. What you may not realize is there are 155 more transcripts of Q&As that few have read. The Q&As are sometimes about particular lectures, but more often, they are an array of questions about life. What’s most unique, perhaps, is the Pathwork Guide’s ability to answer the questions in a way that applies to us all. In short, the Q&As are designed to help everyone.
