An invitation to inquire.

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 and stories causes our suffering. Often without realising, we live a life of being the victim of our thinking. 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, and freedom. Both beginners and those experienced in The Work are welcome.

Valli and Gramya are both Certified Facilitators who have used The Work as a tool for their own freedom and peace for the last 19 years. They love The Work because it works.

Please complete the registration form, or contact us and we will supply you with payment details.
