Key Terms

Here is a glossary of key words and concepts featured throughout this website. Please feel free to send a request for a specific listing if there is something you’d like to see here.

pathwork
singular noun
Also called “shadow work” in the metaphysical community, this is looking at things that are less illuminated, or which are blocks known or unknown to us, within our conscious framework, for the purposes of transformation and soul growth.  It is deliberate work on what is needed to let go of in order to move forward in life.  This is our active participation in our own spiritual evolution through diving into the depths to come up with new appreciation for air.

esoterica
plural noun
Dictionary.com defines this term as, “things understood by or meant for a select few; recondite matters or items.”  For our purposes, we will keep this definition, with removal of any connotations of the word “meant” as “intented” in any deliberate way.  Let us say this refers to material which is profound and possibly abstruse in nature, and that certain individuals find themselves drawn to exploring in an experiential and/or scholarly pursuit.
