What we find, with inquiry, is a new view, new possibilities, a wider horizon, or a shift in our perception of our situation. No situation is too great or too small for this inquiry.
“I did The Work, because I was in a hurry.” ~ Byron Katie
Come join us for a powerful, lazer-sharp way to use your incredible mind and your brilliant imagination to wonder about your beliefs, especially fear, sadness, loss, or anger. This process gives attention to the places we normally prefer NOT to look, and by this awareness and attention….the stress dissolves.
Mental health practitioners in the state of Washington earn 26 CEUs, candidates in the Institute for The Work earn 12 in-person credits. Everyone enrolled in Year of Inquiry will receive part of their credit towards one School for The Work equivalency.
Please see below for suggestions and ideas about where to stay. We enjoy potluck dinner together on Saturday night, along with a movie or special evening designed to share in The Work. Come meet wonderful friends, and connect with others who deeply love questioning their thoughts.
Lake Forest Park is a special little town north of Seattle bordering Lake Washington. The Burke Gilman trail which is a foot and bike path runs through it. A town center with many types of food and all items you would need during the day is walking distance from our location. A gorgeous area to spend your days in inquiry. Limited to 16 people.
This four day retreat is $485. Please, as always, ask about partial scholarship help and we’ll see what we can do. Write firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our beautiful retreat house is an oasis in Lake Forest Park, just north of Seattle. There is space for up to 12 to spend the night onsite. Some people will also commute from either nearby, or their own home. There are two king master bedrooms, one queen bedroom, one full-sized bedroom, a shared trundle bed/twin bed in the office, and ample space for mattresses-on-floor in the downstairs comfortable living room space. Please write to ask about the fee for each room. These will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are willing to share a king bed with someone else (they are so huge) then it’s totally fine to share a master bedroom and split the fee with your roommate.
You will leave with one important troubling issue investigated…and you will know your next steps, beyond the mind, beyond belief.
