Next Virtual Retreat – June 26-27, 2021

Sign up using the calendar at the bottom of the page for three days of self-inquiry.

I will be available for 20 hours (7 AM – 9 PM each day) over two days. Sessions are available that will work in almost every time zone. Check out the scheduling calendar below to sign up. Next retreat will not be until the end of December.

Put Everything Aside for a Couple of Days 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 that hold you back.

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 a facilitator—to address what is coming up from inside.

I’m Available All Day

During virtual retreats, I will be available all day to do The Work. The schedule starts at 7 AM and ends at 9 PM Pacific Time, 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. I will be there for all of them.

A retreat is an intensive way to gain momentum working though 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 learn how to do The Work.


We will do a combination of group work and partner work. For group work, I will lead us 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. I will include myself in the partnering, and I will be available to support anyone who needs assistance during the breakout sessions.

At the beginning of each session, I will give everyone the option to join the group session or begin partner work right away. Those who already have experience doing The Work have the option to get in two 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 Canadian (approx. $241 USD, €203 EUR, £174 GBP, $322 AUD). We need a minimum of 6 people (the minimum has been met for June 26-27).

Once you sign up for sessions using the calendar below, you will receive a payment link by email.

Scholarships are now available for virtual retreats. Please contact me if you need a scholarship application. Completed scholarship applications must be returned to me before 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Monday, June 21, 2021 to be considered (see the time in your time zone here).

massively powerful, super affordable

I am so very pleased with my results from the intensive. I had no desire to be on yet ONE MORE zoom call, I do it all day in my work. However, the intimacy, the healing, the transformations that I watched, and experienced, were truly nothing short of amazing

Also, I have been meditating for a while, and was not unfamiliar with the various technigues of dealing with troubling thoughts and the suffering that comes with them. So, I was truly moved when I realized that this was sort of a connector for me, it gave me the in-real-time ability to manifest what I knew from meditation - My thoughts, when I am fused/fixated on/with them create suffering. Learning to engage and de-fang my negative and problematic self-referential thinking, again, in REAL TIME, is a meditative action, a calm respite in a sea of emotion and intensity. I never thought I would be able to get to that. It is not perfect for me, I do still struggle some and have dipped back into old habits now and again (that's why we call them habits, right). But, overall, the money and time invested here will pay dividends for a lifetime.

I decided to continue doing the work and will be in the next session, probably like 3 or 4 months, starting end of january......could not reasonably ask for me.

Greatest bang for the buck I have ever experienced

I have been practicing this modality for 3-4 months now, by myself and with various facilitators, so I didn’t think I would get a ton out of this 3-days of doing the work in this retreat. In fact, the thought of spending 10-hour a day, for 3-days in front of Zoom filled me with dread.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Not only did I not have Zoom Fatigue, but I felt exhilarated for the breaks to end and jump into the next session.

Having someone with that level of experience fill in the gaps for me via Q&A, tips, watching me do my work, and the power of group sessions felt like I went from fumbling around to a level of mastery of the technique. The support from the group sessions once left me deeply impacted and moved.

I now know that I really can control my moods, my behavior, my attitude, and therefore my day-to-day life by using inquiry to challenge my stressful thoughts at the source. I even learned a 5-min shortcut for when I don’t have the 10-20 min for the full process.

Now I truly understand the depth of this method. It is a FAST, anywhere, anytime methodology to implement many of the things I have learned over the last 20-year of working on myself.

From CBT, ACT, Jungian Projection, the writing of the great stoics like Marcus Arillus, to the teaching of Siddhartha Gautama, it is all in there. As Jung would teach, if you don’t integrate your shadows, they will control you via projections, but being able to implement this concept is a whole different story. My 20-years of work never helped me actually implement much of what I learned, much less do it from anywhere, by myself, and in less than 15-20 min.

This was the greatest bang for the buck I have ever experienced. Even at 10x the price, it was like years’ worth of learning, growth, and most of all, implementation.

Ideal Initial Opportunity to do the Work

I just found the Work of BK a month ago. Since then I’ve watched a dozen videos and now read Loving What Is and 1000 Names for Joy. I’m drawn to the Work as moth to flame, my beliefs so ready to be shed. I entered this retreat with high hopes and the retreat delivered oodles beyond what I imagined. We were a wily group and he held each of us in a kind and thoughtful manner. Allowing What Is and gently guiding each of us into our own held space of Inquiry. This is Todd’s gift. I’ve signed up for the 101 Course and look forward to personal sessions and the Inquiry Circle. If you want to invite authenticity into your true Reality, consider working with Todd as a portal.
Blessings upon blessings, Stacy

A sense of peace

The retreat with Todd was delightful. He is a superb listener, skilled at speaking to people at all levels of familiarity with The Work. The structure of the retreat was flexible so that everyone, both those new to The Work and people with more practice, could sate their desire for experience.
I’m always impressed by Todd’s brilliant, yet quiet, intelligence, as well as his ability to help me laugh at myself. I believe you can’t go wrong if you sign up to do The Work with him.
I joined the retreat with the desire for healing company with whom to end the year. As always, doing The Work with Todd and the others on the retreat brought me closer to a sense of peace and a comfort within my own skin.

My 1st Virtual Retreat was amazing!

This was my first time being introduced to The Work. I had gone online and did some research about the workshops. Todd was an amazing facilitator during our 3 days. The process was so easy and we all were ready to engage and start The Work. What I really enjoyed was the ease that you were able to get The Work done in a safe space. Everyone who attended and participated were each in their own way very understanding and compassionate. I enjoyed the break out sessions and how Todd was able to pair us together and work with us. If you are interested in exploring The Work, I highly recommend Todd’s virtual program.

Many blessings and Happy New Year Todd,

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 want to spend the time that you are isolated at home doing The Work.
  • If you get overwhelmed by doing The Work on your own and could use the support of a facilitator.
  • If you want a jump start 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 (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. I am neither. I only facilitate you in The Work, giving you space to find your own wisdom.
  • If the times don’t work in your time zone.
