The Mission of the Philadelphia Pathwork Region The Philadelphia Pathwork Region is part of a worldwide spiritual community whose purpose is to embody the principles and practices contained in the Pathwork Guide lectures. We offer a spiritual discipline for comprehensive self-transformation through classes, process work, individual sessions and training. The Pathwork becomes a living force within that supports the unfolding soul. It is a spiritual way of being that encompasses self-exploration, self-love and evokes the light hidden within the dark aspects of consciousness.
