The Work of Byron Katie – Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand

The Work of Byron Katie – Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand

November 12-15, 2020

"If you have a problem, you must already have the solution. The question is: do you really want the solution, or do you want to perpetuate the problem? The solution is always there. The Work can help you find it." Byron Katie.

In This Weekend you will experience a simple, yet very powerful way of freeing the mind of the mental stories we carry. Believing these thoughts & stories causes our suffering. We live a life of being the victim of our thinking. Often without realizing. Questioning our stressful thoughts frees us from them. The Work works! You will go home with an understanding of how to use The Work for yourself. People who use The Work often experience a shift from fear, confusion, resentment and frustration, to joy, peace, clarity & freedom. Both beginners and those experienced in The Work are welcome.

“The weekend was well organized, the seaside venue stunning, the food healthy & delicious, and the people welcoming and friendly. But it's what came after that threw me! I gained so much CLARITY and LIGHTNESS around issues that had been frustrations, confusions and sadnesses for years. I've experienced so many old triggers this week and have felt the JOY and FREEDOM that comes from approaching these with my new strategies and understandings, learnt from The Work. Deeply grateful. I had no idea that so much could change from just a few days. Thank you, thank you, thank you xx” – Fiona, Nov 2018

“This year was the first time I attended a retreat on Waiheke, facilitated by Valli & Gramya and I highly recommend it! Once The Work came into my life, a definite shift in my thinking took place, but immersing myself in The Work for 3.5 days was a priceless experience. Their compassion and love for everyone and everything is unmistakable and they are truly passionate to help others end their suffering. Thank you for your love & energy.” – Annelize - Nov 2018

“I recently did your gorgeous and life changing course on Waiheke. After my session I found profound peace and understanding, and I couldn't stop laughing (at the absurdity of it all). I laughed all the way home. However this is where it gets better. On my return my ‘xx’ told me that he had decided to resume his relationship with his ex. All I felt was joy and happiness for him and really wanted all the love to go his way. Long way from thinking you schmuck...The feeling of freedom and lightness has not left me. Not to mention my outbursts of laughter in the middle of the shopping centre among other places. I just wanted to let you know that I am profoundly grateful and blessed that I was lead to The Work and you both.” - Participant – 

“Oh, thank you so much for the wonderful workshop. You have given me an amazing gift through your expertise and compassion. I am having an amazing time with my new life! I am doing the worksheets with more depth and meditation. I'm now feeling really great and more peaceful.” - Participant –
