Professional Journey Bio:

Grace Bell first encountered a need to heal from very painful thinking when still a teenager. This started a journey of self-discovery, seeking, riding a roller-coaster of emotions and thoughts, and studying.

She visited her first therapist in 1981 and entered group therapy in 1988. She completed “est” training twice in 1985 and 1986 and discovered the beauty of the 12 Steps and the power of sharing the road with others.

Grace completed “Facilitator Training” at People House in Denver, Colorado, a year long personal exploration program, in 1987, and also an in-patient treatment program for eating disorders and addictions at Porter Memorial Hospital in Denver that same year. She joined a Course In Miracles study group in 1988 and finished the daily workbook in 2008 (yes, 20 years later). She learned Transcendental Meditation in 1992 in a beginners class.

In 1997 Grace graduated with her master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University (LIOS), opened a part-time counseling practice in Seattle and served as Assistant Therapist to two therapy groups using modalities of gestalt therapy, corrective parenting, psychodrama, Rogerian therapy, and transactional analysis.

In 2008 Grace graduated from both the Certification Program for The Work of Byron Katie with The Institute for The Work after many hours of training and attendance over three years, and Accomplishment Coaching, a one-year Life Coach Certification program.

Grace has attended many one week long meditation retreats and intensives with Adyashanti, one of her favorite spiritual teachers, two intensive meditation Qi Gong retreats with Ming Tang, a Chinese Qi Gong practitioner, and is an avid reader of mystic poets, the Tao de Ching, Michael Singer, Eckhart Tolle, Pema Chodron, and adores new books exploring life. She also graduated from Mama Gena’s School for Womanly Arts in 2011.

Grace has worked with people from all over the world including Japan, Australia, Tasmania, England, Holland, Spain, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Namibia, South Africa, Lebanon, Canada, Egypt, Ireland, Peru, Mexico, China, and the United States.

Grace has been interviewed about her work on the radio programs “The Secrets of Dating and Relationship Success” produced by Sharon Marks, “The Great Parenting Radio Show” with Jacqueline Green in Toronto, Canada and “Intuition To Income” with Abby Gooch.

Grace’s service to this inquiry process has taken her to lead workshops around the world at Unity Church, Breitenbush Hotsprings Oregon, New York, London, England, Hospice and Hospital Staff in Washington state, and multiple classes in Seattle, Washington, her home.

With humor, gentleness, acceptance and sincerity, Grace has helped thousands of people (and most importantly, her own mind) to discover freedom, peace and joy by encouraging them to clearly identify their most painful beliefs and then asking them questions.

Let peace begin with me.

  1. Of course, I’m happy to meet for a session about business instead of The Work. You can find options on my solo sessions page with the fees for 1, 2, or 3 hours (under Programs). When you’re ready, send me an email to and we’ll set the time.–Much love, Grace

  2. Hi Grace.

    I thought of you recently and was hoping we could possibly set up an hour for me to consult with you. I am wanting to expand into more workshop offerings online as I am changing my therapy practice. I know you’ve had great success with your online work. Would you be willing to offer some coaching to me over skype or Facetime? I would really appreciate it.

  3. Hi there,
    I’m doing a serial for my blog at called My Byron Katie Detox: One Year of Questioning Everything I Believe. Are you open to guest posts on your site and if so, is a personal story about The Work something you’d consider?
    Thanks so much for letting me know either way.
