Embrace the Power of Inquiry

Together, we will be delving into the depths of Byron Katie's transformative method, known as "The Work." Through guided meditations, self-reflection exercises, and group discussions, you'll gain the tools to question the stressful thoughts that often cloud your mind and hinder your happiness.

Uncover the Truth of Your Being

Explore chapters from "A Mind at Home with Itself" and unearth the profound truths that lie beneath the surface of your thoughts and beliefs. Discover that the source of your suffering doesn't reside in external circumstances but in the way you perceive them.

Inspired by the Diamond Sutra

Guided by the wisdom of the Diamond Sutra, our retreat integrates Eastern philosophy to enhance your self-discovery journey. Much like the sutra's emphasis on transcending illusions and understanding the nature of reality, our retreat encourages you to challenge limiting beliefs and perceive the truth of your being.

Discover the Stillness Within

Testimonials:

“This class is a gift to the community. You two have created something very special and impactful. I am incredibly glad I participated in this. It has shifted my awareness and made a difference in my daily life such as a calmer presence with friends and family, improvements with my marriage, and more access to feelings of love for no particular reason. I haven’t felt this way since I went to my first School for The Work. I am so grateful to you both and to all the participants for this experience. So much love to you. 🙏❤️” – TF  

“With thanks to Marty and Evie – excellent facilitators and a fantastic team together – I experienced how light-hearted and easy my life is without wanting anything, without seeking approval or appreciation and without expectations of others. And how painful it is to be in a state of mind of wanting more instead of noticing love and gratitude that is always present.” – JK
