The Work of Byron Katie as meditation ~ Love is the Power

The Work of Byron Katie as meditation ~ Love is the Power

September 14-21, 2019

Come and discover the truth that lives underneath our frightening thoughts—your truth—the one that sets you free to live and love without fear. Your truth, self-realization, gives way to a fearless life, a life lived fully in the light, with nothing to hide and nothing to protect. 

“Love is the power we have been looking for, humility the way.” ~ Tom Compton

We will gather for guided meditation, contemplative walks, inquiry, group & partner work, poetry, music and stretch breaks. We will nourish ourselves with healthy and delicious vegetarian food prepared onsite and enjoy the mid-day and evening breaks to rest or explore the acres of fields, forest and swimming pond.

This retreat is designed for you to drop into the heart of The Work of Byron Katie, to experience it as a deep meditation; meeting any parts of ourselves that have been previously unwelcome. This is a space to come and be as you are, an ideal retreat for both beginners & advanced practitioners of The Work.

Typical daily Schedule:
9am morning walk meditation
9:30/10-12:30 morning session*
12:30-2:30 lunch
2:30-5:30 afternoon session*
*including both group work and pairing, meditation, question and answers, poetry, music, stretch/dance breaks and more

“I always appreciate and love Tom's ability to hold space in The Work to allow me to travel to the furthest recesses of my inner life. Tom has an amazing gift in traveling with others into their deepest parts. I gladly go into the worst of it with him because I know he’s right there with me and not only supports me in my process, but completely understands it. Tom is a wonderful, wonderful being.”

"Tom is a Master of running a large group; he was amazing working with so many and holding their attention when they did not know anything about the Work before coming. I cannot praise him enough. Several things came up for me that I did not expect and were resolved. Thank you for putting together such an amazing retreat to raise consciousness on the planet."
– E.L

"I feel like I have been given a secret formula to recognize destructive thinking and process thoughts so they are not in control of me. It’s funny the way we live compromising how good we can be simply because we haven’t taken the time to find an alternative. This retreat showed me a new way."
