Our Current Study Program

On June 17, we began a new study program, which is described below the specific meeting dates.

Date:  July 29, 2017
Time: 8:00 a.m. AND 6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

July 29 is the fifth Saturday of the month.  We are happy to offer two tape group sessions on that day: one at 8:00 a.m. AND another at 6:00 p.m.  As usual, when we have “fifth Saturday” sessions, we do not advance in our current study book, so as not to get ahead of those who are unable to attend.  However, we choose a recording to hear that is related to our study.  Since the focus in our study book Realization of Oneness is the healing principles of The Infinite Way, we will hear one of Joel’s many beautiful classes that address the healing principles, but did not happen to be used as source material for that book.

Date:  August 5, 2017
Time:  8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

Tape 263:  1959 Hawaiian Village Closed Class
Tape 2, Side 1:  “Three Principles and Their Practice”

This class was used as source material for Chapter 2, “Release Man,” and Chapter 3, “Get Thee Hence, Satan,” in Realization of Oneness.   It is also one of the 20 classes (10 tapes, 2 sides each) given in 1959, in which Joel re-presented the healing principles of The Infinite Way.  He strongly recommended those classes for studying the healing work.  The transcripts for those 20 classes constitute the book The Foundation of Mysticism.  The transcript for this tape, “Three Principles and Their Practice,” is Chapter 11 in that book.

Date:  August 12, 2017
Time:  6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

We will hear the same recording that we heard on August 5.

Date:  August 17, 2017
Time:  8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

Tape 275:  1959 London Closed Class
Tape 2, Side 2:  “Treatment and Healing Work of The Infinite Way”

This class provided source material for Chapter 2, “Release Man,” in Realization of Oneness.

Date:  August 24, 2017
Time:  6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time

We will hear that same recording that we heard on August 17.


Our Current Study Program

On June 17, we began work with the book The Realization of Oneness:  The Practice of Spiritual Healing, which is the collection of the 1964 Infinite Way Letters.  While Joel made his transition in June of 1964, because of the lead time required to publish the monthly Letter, it seems that he had already prepared the copy for the July and August Letters and personally written the “Across the Desk” segment.  So the Letters from January through August are especially precious because they are the last ones that Joel himself reviewed and edited.  Lorraine Sinkler, who worked with Joel for years to prepare the Monthly Letter, was asked by Emma Goldsmith to complete the Letters for 1964.

At the beginning of 1964, Joel said this about the Letters to come that year:

“…The Infinite Way Monthly Letters of 1964 consist of an entire series devoted to spiritual healing in accord with the principles of The Infinite Way.  That may not be spiritual healing as somebody else understands it; that is only spiritual healing as it is practiced in the message of The Infinite Way.  This series will include both aspects of spiritual healing that are included in The Infinite Way; that is, the metaphysical and the mystical.

The mystical approach to spiritual healing cannot be accomplished by anyone until the metaphysical principles of The Infinite Way are so much a part of them that they have become like flesh and bones unto them.  In other words, the mystical consciousness is developed through the metaphysical, and more especially through Infinite Way metaphysical, because we do have specific, consistent principles which develop consciousness.  In other words, we do not have a system that says one day that your wrong thinking produced your troubles, and then the next day that your wrong thinking isn’t a cause.  We do not give you a treatment one day for muscles and brain and heart and the next day give you another kind of treatment for something else.

In other words, the metaphysical principles of The Infinite Way are absolutely consistent, and they are based on this: That God is Consciousness, the infinite Consciousness, and that man and the universe is this Consciousness formed, expressed, and therefore, since God is incorporeal Spirit, man and the universe is incorporeal spirituality.”[1]

So our realization of oneness is essential to the practice of spiritual healing.  The basis of Infinite Way healing work is “abiding in the realization of Oneone presence, God; one wisdom, God; one power, God; and no other powers.”[2]  Joel said that these 1964 Letters would “pound and hammer” at these specific principles, so that we may develop the consciousness of the message.  We look forward to sharing and studying this inspiring book and these marvelous recordings with you.

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. We post the schedule for these special sessions well in advance.
