Put Everything Aside for a Weekend to Focus on The Work

Virtual retreats give you a chance to go deeply into one issue, and to be held with compassion and understanding as you work your way through the stressful thoughts you wish to question. There is also room just to listen if that would serve you better.

Do you find yourself overwhelmed by certain stresses even when you do The Work on them? You may want a longer, more uninterrupted time in inquiry—and the support of others who do The Work—to address what is coming up from inside.

Or maybe you just want to dive a little deeper into your work. These retreats provide a container for that. You don’t have to be stressed out to get something out of The Work. The beauty of The Work of Byron Katie is that it meets you wherever you are and helps you take one more step towards inner balance and freedom.

Sometimes, working on old, childhood situations can be a great way to spend a weekend. And just as valuable can be a weekend spent doing The Work on the tiny rubs in daily life.

We’re Available All Day

During virtual retreats, we will be available all day and night to do The Work. For each retreat, the schedule starts at 4 PM Pacific Time on Friday and ends at 3 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, alternating 2-hour sessions with 1-hour breaks.

This allows for different time zones around the world to participate. You don’t need to participate in all of the sessions, just pick as many as you wish to join.

A retreat is an intensive way to gain momentum while working through a stressful issue. Each session offers the opportunity to go a little deeper. If you are new to The Work, this is also a great way to quickly learn how to do The Work.

Curriculum

We will do a combination of group work and partner work. For group work, we will lead you in a variety of activities including facilitating participants one at a time with the whole group, doing popcorn inquiry, answering questions, brainstorming for stressful thoughts to question, sharing experiences, and sharing ideas of how to do The Work.

For partner work, we will use the breakout rooms in Zoom to pair up to do The Work. My co-facilitators and I will include ourselves in the partnering, and we will be available to support anyone who needs assistance during the breakout sessions.

At the beginning of each session, we will give everyone the option to continue with the group session or begin partner work right away in the breakout rooms. In this way, those who already have experience doing The Work have the option to get in two full hours of partner work per session, while the rest of us will do a combination of group work and partner work each session. You can choose your preference each time. You can also ask for a breakout room just for doing written work.

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost for a 2-day retreat is $300 CAD (approx. $225 USD, €207 EUR, £182 GBP, $317 AUD).

Scholarships are available for virtual retreats. Please contact us if you need a scholarship application. Completed scholarship applications must be returned to us by the end of the workday on Thursday (the day before the retreat begins) to be considered.

Are You Ready For a weekend of the Work?

We look forward to diving into the amazing world of self-inquiry with you. What makes it amazing is the “discovery of yourself” that happens when you ask these questions and wait for your answers.

My first and definitely not my last virtual retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5
January 21, 2023

As I had never taken part in a retreat before, and didn’t know what to expect, I only blocked off time in my schedule for four sessions. Never again! I have no regrets (I’m avoiding such stressful thoughts!) but I definitely want to give myself the gift of as many sessions as I can stay awake for the next time ’round. Doing inquiry is, of course, always a valuable activity. What I hadn’t anticipated was how wonderful it would be to be in community with the rest of the participants. Before each session as I sat waiting to be let into the Zoom meeting room, I felt a giddy excited anticipation wondering who was going to be there when the room “opened”! What an amazing gift of the pandemic that it made this bringing together of people from all over the world something that is now part of so many people’s lives. I loved having both the group time together and the wonderful luxury of nearly two hours to do spoken work with a fellow inquiry devotee. I particularly loved spending time with other Inquiry Circle members I had never met before.

In addition to all this, I also did some amazing work. Even my less-than-amazing work led to wonderful gems of feedback from Todd. The perfect place to struggle in other words. I am very much looking forward to my next retreat!

Welcoming, flexible place to do the work

The Work works….and this is an amazing (and affordable) safe space to do the work online – with people face to face. Facilitating others is also available inter mixed with the flexible sessions.

Recommended if you are new to the work (because you can ask questions and basically opt in for whatever you want – flexible and easy) or if you are experienced (I met some people who had done the work a fair bit and got to do some 1 on 1 work with them and it was great).

Thank you to Todd, the hosts and the participants.

I didn’t feel like preparing by making worksheets. And I stepped into the retreat in the fourth session, which is my early morning 7 am. And there is freedom! We shared about the Work, we did the Work on Spoken Work, we played music and had fun, we meditated. We shape the session together. We used the tool of the Work, being save and freeing. Here I sit smiling, writing this review!!

I loved this retreat. The participants were generous with sharing their hearts and minds, and I felt comfortable and safe with them, and Todd, every moment. The deep Work that occurred within me as I participated feels so helpful and meaningful to my life. I look forward to future retreats!

Although this retreat was held online, I felt like I was in the room with all of the other participants. The level of trust that Todd sets up allows me to go deep into myself in a way that feels safe.

During this retreat I discovered some things about myself, about my patterns that I’m eager to explore further. I am leaving feeling energized.

Who These Retreats Are Designed For

These virtual retreats are especially suited for the following situations:

If you just want uninterrupted time doing The Work.

If you have trouble doing The Work on a regular basis and need an intensive dive into The Work.

If you have a bigger issue that needs uninterrupted focus for a few days.

If your mind tends to wander and you need extra support from a facilitator to hold you in The Work to slowly unpeel the layers.

If you are new to The Work and want to learn how to do it in a short amount of time (compared to taking The Work 101).

If you prefer learning by doing rather than a more systematic approach.

If you want a jump start or refresher course with The Work again.

If you just want to hang out with me and others for a few days doing The Work together.

Who These Retreats Are Not Designed For

If you don’t really enjoy doing The Work of Byron Katie (that’s all we will be doing).

If you are too easily distracted at home (you don’t have a quiet place where you can meet morning, afternoon, and evening).

If you are trying to balance too many responsibilities and can’t take enough time off for the retreat days.

If you are too tired (maybe just getting some rest would be more productive).

If you are looking for a teacher or coach. We only facilitate you in The Work, giving you space to find your own wisdom.
