Get Your Inner Work Done - With a Group

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

If stress is getting in your way, if it is preventing you from living the happy, free, loving life you deserve, then it’s time to do The Work. But if you’re like me, your mind will put it off. “Tomorrow, I’ll do my work,” it says, and tomorrow never comes. So the stress continues, even with the solution right at hand. Don’t let this be you!

Welcome to our ongoing practice group for The Work of Byron Katie. I call it “Inquiry Circle” because its sole purpose is for us to inquire into our stressful thinking together and to find our turnarounds with The Work. I especially like the term, “circle” here because we are all equals in this group like all points are equal on a circle. 

There are no gurus, teachers, or helpers, no co-dependence. We like to think of ourselves as independent researchers, each doing our own work but sharing it with each other and encouraging each other. 

A Community Makes A Difference

A group is like a magnet.

Once I join a group I feel a doubly strong pull to do my work.

I have the pull from The Work itself—my own motivation to find peace. But I also have an additional pull from the group. I want to move with the group. And I want to learn from what others are working too.

Because I’m motivated to keep coming back to the group, I end up doing my work consistently over time. And for me, consistency is what makes The Work come alive. Not only does the practice deepen over time, but with ongoing practice I have time to question many, many facets of my thinking.

It’s never overwhelming this way. I put less pressure on myself as I work. I just keep showing up, and my work keeps getting done. Occasionally I look back and notice that issues that used to be big for me no longer bother me. That’s the power of steady practice for me.

Welcome to Our Group

If you really want to do The Work, Inquiry Circle is where you can do it day after day, month after month, year after year.

Inside the Inquiry Circle forum, you will be a part of a group of people that is doing The Work together in written form and spoken form. It is open 24/7 for you to do your work in written form and to read what others are writing. And we have many opportunities for all time zones to do The Work in spoken form each week. 

Inquiry Circle is also a place where you can ask a question about The Work, or your process any time of day or night. This is where I do my work every day, and I read and comment on the work that others are doing.


Inquiry Circle Is All About The Work

Here are the main sub-forums of Inquiry Circle:

  1. The Work Forum – where we all do The Work in written form using templates provided.
  2. The Lounge – where all announcements and other sharing is posted
  3. Questions Forum – where you can ask your questions and deepen your understanding about anything related to The Work
  4. Private Areas – in case you want to do The Work privately (alone or with another person or small private group)
  5. Drop-in Sessions – where you can choose from regular Zoom sessions where we do The Work together (spoken sessions and silent sessions for written work together)
  6. The Breakfast Club – an optional program for setting a goal each month (doing The Work every day, 5 days a week, 3 days a week, 2 days a week, or once a week). Each month if you make your goal, your price goes down, and it goes up if you don’t. This can be a great incentive for building a steady practice. Byron Katie says, “Do The Work for Breakfast, and have a great life.” That’s what we do here.
  7. Monday Zoom Calls With Todd – Every Monday, I host a group call for 30 minutes where we share anything about Inquiry Circle, our work, ask questions, or I facilitate someone to do The Work.
  8. Inquiry Circle Monthly Seminars – Once a month, we meet on Zoom to go in depth into a particular subject to think about how to do The Work on it and then we use the breakout rooms to do The Work in pairs.
  9. Virtual Retreats – Inquiry Circle members get a special rate for our quarterly virtual retreats which are a great way to go more deeply into The Work over a weekend.
  10. Guidelines – we all agree to the guidelines, respect the confidentiality of our members, and keep the spirit of The Work.

Community-Based Courses Give Temporary Membership

My community-based courses take place in Inquiry Circle so you can benefit from the group environment during the course. There are currently two courses available: The Work 101 and The Work 102. The prerequisite for joining Inquiry Circle is completion of The Work 101 online course that I offer. No matter how much experience you have doing The Work, The Work 101 is the starting point for everyone joining Inquiry Circle.

During The Work 101 and The Work 102 courses, you will be a full member of Inquiry Circle for the weeks of the training. You can participate in everything in Inquiry Circle, just like a full member. If you want to want to continue after completing The Work 101, you will be welcome to continue here for years with us.

Membership Fee

The first month is a trial month. There is no cost for Inquiry Circle during your trial month. Your welcome guide is a volunteer and will be supporting you without charge. If you find that Inquiry Circle is a fit for you, then you can continue after one month by getting an annual membership.

Dues are paid annually with a recurring credit card subscription: $560/year, each year, around the time of your renewal date, you will get a chance to review your experience in Inquiry Circle and renew, or discontinue. You can always return to Inquiry Circle later if you decide to take a break.

As long as you continue in Inquiry Circle, your annual membership fee will remain locked in at the price when you signed up, even if the price increases for new members. If you discontinue Inquiry Circle and come back later, your rate when you return will be the current new member price. Prices go up on July 1, 2023 so sign up today.

Scholarships and payment plans are available for those who want to participate but are unable due to financial reasons. Please contact me if you would like to apply for a scholarship.


This Is Where I Do my Work

I have been doing my work here in Inquiry Circle since 2013. It has been a constant support for me to keep showing up day after day to do my work. As a participant, you are also welcome to read what I am working on, and you can ask for support from me or others in Inquiry Circle at any time.

This is not only a great place to practice The Work, but to be in a community of people who are practicing The Work of Byron Katie on a regular basis.

Inquiry Circle

Monthly Seminars

Each month at the beginning of the month, we hold a Zoom seminar just for Inquiry Circle members. During these sessions we discuss how to do The Work on a particular subject area. We also share “show and tell” any insights or new experiences from doing The Work over the past month.

We then break up into partner pairs within Zoom and do The Work in spoken form for an hour. Finally, we come back to share our experiences and answer any questions. These monthly seminars are a great way to share The Work together.

Inquiry Circle Virtual Retreats (Every Quarter)

Every quarter (winter, spring, summer, and fall), we hold a weekend virtual retreat just for Inquiry Circle members. These virtual retreats allow us to go deeper into The Work.

Each weekend has 6 two-hour sessions (total of 12 hours). And each session is offered twice. This allows people from different time zones to participate in all 6 sessions. In fact, you can attend all 24 hours if you really want to!

Topics vary. Most often we work on what is coming up for each of us, though sometimes there is a theme for the retreat. Some people rent a room for the weekend so they can make it a real retreat while connecting virtually to the group.

These virtual retreats cost $200. They are an optional part of Inquiry Circle, and the cost is not included in the Inquiry Circle annual membership. For those who need financial aid, we have a very generous scholarship program for Inquiry Circle members.


All members participate in a “confidentiality handshake” and agree not to share anything that they learn about the other person outside of Inquiry Circle. Everyone who participates is here to do their own work. I think you will find it to be a very supportive place to do inquiry.

You may request that your posts be deleted at any time.

It's Not a Fit for me Guarantee

If you’re interested in doing The Work on an ongoing basis, I encourage you to give Inquiry Circle a try. If it’s not a fit for you, you can discontinue at any time. And if you are dissatisfied in any way, just ask me for your money back and I’ll be happy to give it to you. Fell free to try it out with no risk.
