Date:  July 20, 2019
Time: 8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

Tape 102:  1954 Seattle Practitioner Class
Side 2:  “Flesh and Flesh”

In the course of this class, Joel provides answers to questions about the body.   These are not questions that are directly asked by students, but questions that we might have as we consider the topic of body:

*  Please explain further the “spiritual body” and “concept body.”
*  Where does the body fit into the spiritual scheme?
*  How do we interpret the word “flesh” and how does it fit in?
*  How does consciousness of truth affect the physical, or “concept” body?

This class is one of four used as source material for Chapter 9, “The Issues of Life Are in Consciousness” in Consciousness Is What I Am.  

Note:  We are using this recording instead of #113A, titled “Understanding the Body,” and a note of explanation is in order.  It would seem that a recording with the title “Understanding the Body” would be a natural for a series on the body.  However, if you are familiar with that class, you may recall that for a good portion of the class, Joel is reading—and reading so quickly that it is difficult to follow him.  With a bit of research, we discovered that he was reading from notes or a transcript of recording #102B.   We chose to use recording #102B instead of #113A so that we can hear the content as Joel originally gave it in his usual spontaneous manner.    

Date:  July 27, 2019
Time:  6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time

We will hear the same class that we heard on July 20.

Date:  August 3, 2019
Time:  8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time 

Tape 513:  1963 Princess Kaiulani Sunday Series
Side 2:  “Attaining Dominion through I”

In the course of this class, Joel provides answers to questions about the body.   These are not questions that are directly asked by students in the class, but questions that we might have as we consider the topic of body:

Once again, and in more detail: How can I experience myself as I truly am, and not as this physical body? (The Body Exercise – extended version)
*  What does it mean to say “You are not the body; you are INFINITE consciousness and your body is within your consciousness”?  Why don’t I experience this?
*  What does it mean to say that the body does not control life?  It seems that it does.
*  If it is true that I have dominion over the physical body, why do some bodily functions seem to operate on their own without my direction; for example, digestion, heartbeat, the production of enzymes, the growth of hair and nails, etc.?

This class is one of two used as source material for Chapter 8, “Attaining Dominion through ‘I'” in Awakening Mystical Consciousness.    

Date:  August 10, 2019
Time:  6:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time

We will hear the same class that we heard on August 3.


Our Current Study Program

On July 6, we began a study program on the topic of the body.   In one of his classes, Joel said, “Now then, the moment we realize that I am life eternal; that I am pure spirit, pure consciousness, we come to the next great thing: What about this body?  And there we find the mystery that has heretofore not been explained.”   In another class, he addresses the same persistent question:  “What about this body?  How does it fit into a spiritual universe?  Is this material body the Word made flesh?  Does the material body manifest God?”  And again, The question has come up more and more and more:  “What about this body?  This body bothers me.  What about this body?”

In this upcoming series of ten recordings,  Joel addresses the intriguing question of body.   We look forward to sharing these enlightening classes 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., so that participants in all time zones can hear the recording.  We post the schedule for these special sessions well in advance.
