Join Us To Do The Work of Byron Katie

  • Want more guidance with The Work?
  • Beating yourself up when doing The Work?
  • Tired of having to do The Work alone?
  • Too busy to do The Work?
  • Want to do The Work, but don’t know where to start?
  • Feeling overwhelmed with The Work?
  • Doing The Work but not seeing the results you want?
  • Stressing out about doing The Work?

Virtual retreats are a great way to get support with The Work of Byron Katie in a safe, supportive environment. No question goes unanswered. No doubt goes unaddressed. And you get first-hand experience practicing The Work on any topic that stresses you.

Four Virtual Retreats Each Year

We offer four virtual retreats every year, one for each season. Two of these retreats are for Inquiry Circle members only, and two are open to everyone. Join our Inquiry Circle group to attend all four virtual retreats each year. The prerequisite for joining Inquiry Circle is to complete The Work 101. You can join the Winter and Summer Virtual Retreats without taking The Work 101.

For each virtual retreat, we will be offering sessions around the clock for 48 hours so all time zones can participate. Check out the schedule below. It’s a total of 16 two-hour sessions to choose from day and night.

I will host eight sessions each day (Fri 4-6 PM, Sat 7 AM – 6 PM, Sun 7 AM – 3 PM), and members of Inquiry Circle, my ongoing practice group for The Work, will host eight sessions each night (7 PM – 6 AM).

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. $233 USD, €228 EUR, £193 GBP, $334 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.

Coming closer to yourself

Rated 5 out of 5
April 8, 2022

The Virtual Retreat is a chance to immerse yourself in the Work and the experience of coming closer to yourself. Everytime I attend the retreat I discover something different than I thought I would. Everytime it leaves me being more true to myself and who I am at the time, which can change, even per session. It brings out joy and it brings out stress which you can question or just share in the group. The group is such a safe place where you can show up just as you are now, joyful, sad, frustrated, insecure, anxious… You can choose to just listen or actively participate, you can do spoken work or written work, whatever feels good for you. That’s what I love mostly about these retreats, there are no requirements for how to be, which for me is the best environment to explore my inner world and feel a sense of it all being okay.

My First but not last Virtual Retreat

Rated 5 out of 5
January 11, 2022

…was a wonderful experience. I set aside time and space to fully immerse myself in the experience without distraction. It was nice to participate from home as I didn’t have to manage the time and expense of travel or care for my animals.
I have been doing the work for some time but had very little experience with facilitation. To work on things out loud with another person was cathartic and clarifying.
The structure of the retreat was very flexible, allowing people to work in groups of two, individually or as a group as was their need in each session.
Todd’s skill at managing timing, technology, etc gave the retreat a nice fluidity. His deep listening and compassion were evident to me and he supported my laughter and my tears with ease.
I had several new and impactful awarenesses arise over the weekend that brought me new peace and forgiveness for others and for myself. The Work works if you work it and here’s your chance to work it.

So much freedom

Rated 5 out of 5
January 11, 2022

I love Todd’s virtual retreats for many reasons. First there is a warm sense of welcoming, being part of a group of friendly people who all want to find more peace. There is also such a nice guidance to stick to the essence of the Work which enables each of us to find our own truth for our own situations. I had wonderful facilitators to do my Work which brought me freedom from my thoughts and a deep sense of openness. Listening to others, witnessing their Work is also always touching and so full of wisdom. It also makes me see how we are alike. It’s so good to be able to join when we want (we don’t have to take all the sessions) and from where we are, all around the world. The other hosts also were fantastic. I say a huge thank you to Everybody.

A Gift to Yourself

Rated 4 out of 5
January 11, 2022

A self-care weekend doing TW and really giving yourself time. Todd was very good at explaining things and it helped with making new distinctions and refining skills. He also demonstrated great sensitivity and support in facilitating. And a lot of opportunities for partnering and DOING TW. My favorite exercise was the shame/guilt inquiry.

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.
