With Caitlin Frost, Certified Coach and Facilitator of The Work. Caitlin has trained and worked with Byron Katie, founder of The Work. She works globally with leaders, performers, coaches, facilitators, change makers, entrepreneurs, parents and anyone who is wanting to shift stuck patterns, open space for more possibility, and engage more fully and effectively in their life and work.

  • What thoughts keep you from experiencing joy in your life, relationships and work?
  • What fears keep you from compassionate, decisive action?
  • What beliefs stop you from seeing the abundance of options that are available to you?

We can spend our whole lives trying to change other people and the world, thinking things should be different than they are and living out of beliefs that we have never stopped to really question for ourselves.

Stressful thinking, unresolved issues, limiting beliefs and fears can keep us from fully engaging in our lives, our relationships and our work in the world.

Join us for an engaging, powerful and nourishing experience where we will work with the beliefs and patterns that keep you stuck and hold you back.

This retreat is for women and men who want to take some time to work effectively and compassionately with the places you are finding yourself stressed or stuck, and find more freedom, clear thinking and peace for yourself. You will learn how to use an accessible and effective tool, known as The Work, for both yourself and in working with others.

The Work is a simple yet powerful self-inquiry tool for working directly with your own thinking and limiting beliefs in the places you get stuck and experience stress. As a practice it enables you to resolve issues, shift underlying patterns and access more possibility thinking, peace, clarity and wise action in your life, relationships and work.

“I don’t let go of my thoughts, I meet them with understanding and they let go of me.

— Byron Katie

During this workshop you will learn the The Work, and have ample time to apply the practice to your own stuck places in both personal and professional life. Through group, partner and individual exercises, as well as personal coaching, we work together to:

IDENTIFY and shift underlying beliefs

ENGAGE with fears that keep you stuck

TRANSFORM conflict and relationship challenges

RECONNECT with your own clarity and intelligence

In this free 90-minute evening workshop, registered clinical counsellor Sherry Scheideman will help you learn ways to improve your relationship with your child so you can manage challenging behaviour, keep your child on track, and be a parent your child wants to turn to.

This workshop is based on developmental psychologist Gordon Neufeld’s Six Stages of Attachment, and renowned Family Therapist Susan Stiffelman’s methods of applying these stages to our own parenting.

This workshop is suitable for parents of any age of children -- babies, school kids, teens, or even adults. You will simply gain tools to improve your relationship.

Exploring Anger Group


Registered clinical counsellor Sherry Scheideman co-facilitates this group, which is for people who have difficulty either expressing or controlling their anger. Through experiential and educational exercises, handouts, and discussions, we explore how we experience, respond to, feel about, and are aware of our anger, and how it manifests itself. Group members look at emotions that underlie, affect, and suppress our anger. We examine our beliefs about what anger is, and what it isn't. Communication skills are practiced as a means of expressing anger respectfully, and practical tools are offered as an aid to exploring and dealing with our anger.
