events being offered.
Using exercises, sacred poetry, music, movement and group dynamics woven together to support us in honouring, seeing clearly, and stepping out of old paradigms that no longer serve us in loving Life as it unfolds.
Through The Work as meditation we can begin to bring everything within ourselves, heaven and hell, dark and light, into the “light” of conscious awareness and finally begin to meet it all with love and understanding.
These retreats are ideal for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners in The Work.
Discover for yourself how this Work can awaken an unconditionally kind and loving presence within you.

I have been attending Tom’s workshops for the last 10 years and no facilitator has impacted me more than Tom. Probably the most important learning for me was to realize that most of my stressful thoughts and beliefs are not actually true. They are stories I am telling myself to try and make sense of the world and to prevent me from feeling deep pain. In Tom’s workshops I have learned to question my beliefs and the judgements that come along with them. I realize that I am looking at life – big or small things – through my core beliefs around “right or wrong” and “good or bad”, rather than looking at reality and recognizing that things simply “are” – independent of what I think of them.
Besides using the tools of The Work by Byron Katie, Tom shares music and readings to underline his messages. This Rumi poem has become my favorite:
“Out beyond ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing lies a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.”
I am on the long journey to that field, on the journey to Love. When I asked Tom how to live without the concept of “right or wrong” guiding me, he suggested to tap into my heart, and to let Love guide me. I had no idea how to do that, or what that even means, until I remembered how I approached life when I was a young boy. I let my heart guide me to discover the things I loved to do, like building my Fort and climbing on top of things.
I am grateful that I continue to feel more peaceful and more loving and accepting of myself, others and of all the crazy things that happen in the world. Tom has been a major influence along the way: experiencing his honest, loving approach to help me identify and deal with my stories and beliefs, watching him work with others and their life stories, hearing about his own journey and the work he has put in to living his life fully and with joy.
