Our Current Study Program

On March 17, 2018, we began a study of the “eight most important chapters” that Joel recommended from The Infinite Way writings.  In Chapter 10 of The Contemplative Life, Joel named eight specific chapters for serious study saying, “In order to build a consciousness of truth, all Infinite Way students should know the following passages as well as they know their own names.”  Later he said that these chapters are of paramount importance to the serious student because they contain the answers to almost every individual problem that can be brought to us, including family relations, illness, and supply. “If you work with those specific writings;” Joel said, “apply them to the problems of life that come to you in your own experience or that of your family or your patients; if you work with them over and over, they will develop fourth dimensional consciousness.”

The eight chapters are:

  1. “The New Horizon,” in The Infinite Way
  2. Chapter 4, “God Is One,” in Living the Infinite Way
  3. “Protection,” the March 1955 Infinite Way Letter, in The Heart of Mysticism (Note that The 1955 Letters is no longer published as a separate book.  The 1955 through 1959 Letters have been consolidated into The Heart of Mysticism.)
  4. “Break the Fetters That Bind You,” the October 1958 Infinite Way Letter, in The Heart of Mysticism (Note:  The 1958 Letters is no longer published as a separate book.  The 1955 through 1959 Letters have been consolidated into The Heart of Mysticism.)
  5. Chapter 8, “Contemplation Develops the Beholder,” in The Contemplative Life
  6. “Introduction,” in Practicing the Presence
  7. Chapter 5, “Love Thy Neighbor,” in Practicing the Presence
  8. Chapter 11, “The Relationship of Oneness,” in The Art of Spiritual Healing

General Schedule Information

The Online Tape Group meets on the first four Saturdays of every month. We meet at different times on alternate Saturdays in order to serve the various time zones around the world. Participants can join the meetings by using a computer, a telephone, or a mobile device.

On the first and third Saturdays of each month, the group meets at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time. This provides access at convenient times from North America eastward across South America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

On the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, the group meets at 6:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific Time. This provides access to the tape group at convenient times from North America westward across the Pacific to Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

We will play the same tape for two consecutive weeks so that both time zone groups can hear it. In other words, the tape that we play on the first Saturday at 8:00 a.m. will be played again on the second Saturday at 6:00 p.m. The tape that we play on the third Saturday at 8:00 a.m. will be repeated on the fourth Saturday at 6:00 p.m.

When a month has five Saturdays, we do not proceed with our regular study program on the fifth Saturday, but may schedule special sessions and hear recordings relating to a current holiday or to another timely topic. If we hold sessions on the fifth Saturday, we hold them at both 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., so that participants in all time zones can hear the recording.  We post the schedule for these special sessions well in advance.
