The Work 101 in September + Scholarships for Private Sessions

Looking forward to fall.

I’m Happy to Announce Two Pieces of News

The first news is that scholarships are now available for private sessions. Until now, I did not offer scholarships for private sessions.

The logic I have used up until now is that I offer many other inexpensive and free ways to do The Work. So even if someone can’t afford to do a private session with me, they can take advantage of Open Sessions, The Work 101, Inquiry Circle, etc.

But I realize that there is a unique value in private sessions. Some people don’t do well in groups. Some people just prefer one-on-one privacy. Some people prefer a less structured way of working than in a classroom situation. And some people just like the support of working with an experienced facilitator privately.

So Why Exclude Anyone Based on Income?

As of now, I’m opening up this service to everyone. The cost of private sessions will remain at $100/hour. And those who would like to apply for scholarships can contact me personally.

Of course, scheduling will still be a limiting factor, as my calendar is quite full. But now money does not have to be a reason not to work with me. Also, payment plans are available on request.

You can sign up for private sessions here.

The Second Announcement Is The Work 101 Course in September

Earlier this summer, I announced that the next Work 101 course would not be until January. Since then, my schedule has changed and I am now offering the course starting the day after Labor Day, Sep 5.

The course is seven weeks in total, including the orientation week. The inclusive dates are Sep 5 – Oct 20, 2017.

The Work 101 Is Designed to Solidify Your Work

It has two purposes:

  1. To develop all of the skills needed to do The Work with confidence.
  2. To culture a habit of doing The Work on an almost daily basis.

If you are new to The Work, come learn The Work. If you are experienced with The Work, join me in going deeply into it.

The Work 101 is the prerequisite for joining Inquiry Circle, my ongoing practice group for doing The Work. Even if you have done The School for The Work, or are a Certified Facilitator of The Work, this is an opportunity to dive deeply with me into The Work of Byron Katie.

And it’s an opportunity to start a steady, ongoing practice of The Work.

Learn more about The Work 101 here. It is an online course that works in any time zone. I hope to see you soon.

Have a great week,

He also enjoys writing about The Work, and training others in the subtleties of this meditative process.
