The Observer Self


Chapter 3 of The Undefended Self (US3) by Susan Thesenga.

The goal in developing an inner Observer Self is to awaken the inner teacher/healer who is ever-present and ready to guide us, using the tools of objectivity and detachment with love and compassion.

          The ability to observe ourselves objectively and compassionately is the single most important skill to develop in walking the spiritual path.  Distortion, false beliefs and negativity result in pain and disharmony.  

          If we blame ourselves, fear that we are inadequate, or label our imperfections as bad or evil we can lose the best witness we have -- our own inner knowing. 

          Feedback from others may contain distortions or feel threatening, causing us to hide behind our defenses instead of opening to the grain of truth in every human interaction. How can we discern the energy of the Observer Self as distinct from the Ego or other inner voices?

Individual Work With the Concepts - 2014 Sample Videos


         Individual sessions with a Pathwork Helper are unique to both Helper and Client. Sometimes, just a few sessions can help 'untangle' our positive intentions where they have become snarled or distorted by unconscious negativity, repressed needs, or false beliefs. I take notes and sometimes make suggestions for further study; these are scanned and emailed afterwards.  I use zoom.us teleconference software, which clients can access online or by phone.  At the client's discretion. the software permits both audio and video recordings which they can download onto their own computers to review later.

          In June 2014 I offered introductory sessions to several contacts who have studied the Pathwork lectures for several years on their own. In exchange, they agreed to allow the sessions to be recorded. After the volunteer reviewed them and gave permission, these sessions were uploaded on YouTube, starting with this Introduction:

        The purpose was to demonstrate how basic Pathwork concepts (such as the three listed below) might be applied to individual circumstances. Recordings may be removed at any time, at the discretion of the volunteer.
