Inquiry Circle Annual Retreat

Participants at the First Annual Inquiry Circle Retreat in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, 2019.

Join Us for Deep Work and Togetherness

In 2019, we came together for the first time in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in the French Alps. We had been working together online in Inquiry Circle for years, so this was not a retreat of strangers. We all knew each other well from doing The Work on the Inquiry Circle forum, but many of us had never met in person.

When we came together it was love at first sight, and that love deepened as we shared together, cooked together, went on outings together, worked together, were vulnerable with each other, and did The Work on each other. We became closer and closer as the week went on and we didn’t want it to end.

Luckily it doesn’t end because we are all members of Inquiry Circle. So after the retreat we continue to deepen our work and our connection with each other as we live our lives around the globe.

The best!!! Hands down.

Hands down. The best work retreat I’ve ever attended. I feel like I finally got the missing pieces of the puzzle. The nuances of the work I finally found here. Just amazing.

The hospitality, Todd’s guidance, our hearts opening together, deep deep learning and connection. Such unexpected gifts. Truly transforming. My top Priority to attend next year.

like Turnaround House - but much more fun

It was just amazing. I have known Todd since 2013, when I was in Turnaround House and he was my facilitator. When I heard: Todd goes to the desert in 2016 - I followed. Now I did the same. Go and see Todd. And there was much more for me to find: Sophie's hospitality, comradeship, real sharing, deep learning, lots of laughter, real friendship, music, hiking in the high Alps, beauty everywhere, helping each other and trying to find out about the other.

We really came to trust each other to show up really vulnerable, did partner work together and Todd was always available, open and willing to help. Certainly my best event of all and much much better, than I expected.

And the price was unbeatable - as Todd cooked mainly, and we shared tidying the kitchen and all we had to pay for was the supermarket bill divided by 6.

I hope, you get hooked for next time and I will see you there.

To be with that small group in Chamonix was one of my deepest experiences in doing The Work.

I am still full of love and gratitude. What a great time we had together. I just can recommend this workshop (or any other with Todd).

And I want you to know: Not speaking English well is no problem and no obstacle to participate.

Todd is able to facilitate you in great depth – with no limits. He can go with you as far as you want.

Simply amazing

I can't recommend this retreat enough. Todd's gentle, friendly patience helped me find worksheets I'd been looking for for years. Meeting others from Inquiry Circle was incredible and has helped me deepen my daily practice and on top of all that, it was just fun - we shared so much warmth and laughter.

Amazing Retreat

The retreat was just amazing. Beyond my expectations: I was sure it would be fun and profound but it went beyond that, I really enjoyed it on many levels. It was such a privilege to be with 5 other members of Inquiry Circle, finally meeting them in person. They were already familiar but, there together, we met and shared what is hard to say through written words and even spoken work or open sessions. The magic of presence. The moments of silence, shared silence. It was the "real deal" as we joked about!!! And we joked about many things, many situations, on ourselves too. We saw our innocence and were able to share feedback. We did many facilitations as client and as facilitators and I learned tons.

I thank Todd for being always so available, for organizing the best possible retreat. I have the idea that the next one will be another wonderful one. I cannot wait to be there and cannot wait to meet you all: new participants and the one who couldn't come this time.

Join Us Next Year

In order to participate in the Inquiry Circle Annual Retreat, you must be a member of Inquiry Circle. And the prerequisite for joining Inquiry Circle is to take The Work 101 online course for learning and deepening The Work. So if you’re thinking of joining our amazing group of people who love to do The Work, start by taking The Work 101. Then join Inquiry Circle. Then you will be eligible to meet with us at this retreat each year.

The First Annual Inquiry Circle Retreat was the highlight of my year. And I can’t wait to do it again next year. And I’d love to have you with us.

More details will be added here as we plan for the next retreat. The next one will be in North America. We have not decided where yet, or when it will happen, but probably in the summer of 2020, so you’ve got time to complete The Work 101 and join Inquiry Circle before it comes around again.
