We are so excited to gather July 8-11, 2017 all day Saturday – Tuesday in gorgeous Seattle, Washington to hold retreat with Byron Katie–while she is all the way in Switzerland!!
To sign up please click here.
With the joys of technology, Byron Katie will be streaming her program from a little village in Switzerland for the third year in a row, and we’ll be able to gather, watch, maintain silence, and share this inspiring time together.
We will hold total silence together during this time. For those of us commuting, you may choose to break silence when you leave our site, or remain in silence depending on your life situation. Our retreat house will be a silent zone.
The fee? $185 per person.
If you choose to sleep onsite, there are 4 lovely private rooms and space for 2 people to sleep on couches or mattresses for a reduced fee. Please see the fees for registration for lodging below. You will pay Grace Bell directly (the house is booked).
Saturday, July 8, 2017 Please arrive between 8:30-9:00 am. We’ll begin the first session at approximately 9:30 am. Saturday, July 8th will include THREE sessions, the orientation and introduction followed by two 3-hour sessions with Katie (approximate times): 9:30-11:00 am, 2:00-5:00 pm and 6:30-9:30 pm.
Sunday, July 9th and Monday,July 10th two sessions with Katie: 10 am – 1 pm, and 4 – 7 pm.
Tuesday July 11th THREE sessions: 10am-1pm and 2:30-5:30 pm and the beautiful closing session from 7-8:30 pm.
Please feel free to come and go as needed for your schedule. The fee is the same (and if you miss part of the retreat during our time together, you will be able to log-in and watch what you missed later via your computer for a limited time).
This will be a magnificent time to have a very low-cost experience with Byron Katie, and a group of inquirers dedicated to personal self-realization and awakening. People generally are unable to hold silence all alone in retreat in daily life–this gives an incredible support and power to the energy of silence in the group, allowing participants to keep silence throughout the 4 days together.
People will be able to individually log in to watch the recordings of this broadcast for select days throughout the month of August, and if you are interested, you’ll be able to upgrade with a small fee (around $45) to watch all of it as many times as you want to through the end of August. Everyone attending from ITW will receive 24 credits with Certified Facilitators (12 credits for Grace Bell, 12 credits with another CF who is attending) OR they can register for the same small upgrade at the end of the 4th day to receive special credit for attending retreat directly with Katie (also 24 credits) and unlimited watching of the sessions.
For those interested in lodging, we have 4 beautiful private rooms to choose from and 2.75 bathrooms in the house. Check in Friday 7/7, check out Weds 7/12:

The number of people in any one room is flexible, and the fee remains the same no matter who is sharing a room.
There is plenty of street parking, and room for 3 people to park in the alley, off-street.
If you are seriously interested in one of the rooms, please book it soon as these are expected to go fairly quickly. To book a room, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the booking link to pay in full. Your full room payment guarantees your spot will be saved. (When you write we can let you know what rooms are still available).
Can’t wait to join with you in the joy of silence and the wisdom of Katie and The Work.
