QA214 QUESTION: In many of my groups and in a lot of my activities in the Pathwork, I noticed a predominance of women. And I wonder if you could comment on this. What is the reason for it?
ANSWER: The reason is really quite obvious in the sense that men feel more often a particular prejudice against the feeling side, the vulnerability, the spiritual side. Man’s self-esteem falsely seems to rest on the ego qualities, the control aspect, the intellectuality, the physical control, and the intellectual control of immediate life.
This is no longer as true now as it used to be. But it still holds true to a certain extent. But it is less and less true. Therefore, I would say it requires really more courage for many a man to go into such a path, because his own prejudices, his apparent and false self-esteem, have to be abandoned.
