World Work Recordings

Joel gave several beautiful classes on world work and topics related to world work.  Since Joel’s recordings are still under copy protection, we have obtained permission to post some of these recordings in their entirety for your online or telephone listening.  Each recording will be available for one month from the time of posting for listening at any time.  There is a list of previously posted recordings at the bottom of this page.  

To hear the recording by telephone, call 1-641-715-3900, and enter the extension number 828754, followed by the pound sign (#).  After you enter the extension number, the introduction to the recording will begin, followed by the recording itself.  The telephone number and the extension number will always be the same, even as we change the recording each month.  Depending on your telephone calling plan, the call may or may not incur a charge, so it is a good idea to check whether your plan covers calls to the 641 area code.  Even if you usually participate in the tape group by computer, the telephone option is convenient when you would like to listen to the recording but for some reason do not have access to your computer.

Current Recording (Posted October 1, 2020)

The recording for this month is 118A, from the 1955 Kailua Study Group, titled “Seek – Knock – Ask.”  

While this recording does not directly address world work, the lessons presented surely will help those who do world work to fine tune their altitude and attitude.  Joel gives a superb lesson on the subtleties of healing work and the nature of error, and then ties that into the value of our united consciousness of oneness in and with God.  Toward the end of the lesson, Joel speaks about “the vision I have had from the beginning,” namely that “There will be a band, a circle of spiritual wisdom, of spiritual consciousness all around the entire globe. … Then, everybody in this world who seeks, asks and knocks for spiritual light will find that they are tuned in to this band around the world.”  This lesson is another one that is particularly appropriate for the times.

  • This recording is approximately one hour long.  It was used as source material for Chapter 18, “A Circle of Christhood,” in  The Art of Meditation and Chapter 11, “Gratitude,” in  The Heart of Mysticism, Volume 2 – The 1955 Infinite Way Letters.
  • The recording will be available for listening through October 31, 2020.

You can listen to this recording from the Sanctuary page, which is a visually serene environment.
