• The Work+InterPlay

    Based on The Work of Byron Katie


The Work is a powerful process of inquiry developed by Byron Katie,that aims to bring about an awareness of one’s own thinking, and to free the mind from limitations It is, in essence, yoga for the mind.. InterPlay is a fun, body-awareness practice that was developed in Oakland, USA. The combination of the two will achieve a sense of harmony between the body and the mind.

This retreat is for adults of 18 and above. There is no maximum age limit! Prior knowledge of The Work or InterPlay is not required. This two-day workshop will give you the tools you need to work through your limitations, and discover a new way of positive thinking that can help you deal with the stress of everyday life. Freedom begins in the mind!

This retreat is the first time The Work and InterPlay have been combined for the first time. The aim is that the serious, inner exploration of The Work can be complimented by the fun, invigorating movement of InterPlay. You will be offered support post-workshop to keep The Work alive in yourlife through an online community. In the future, you can attend topic-based or longer intensives on The Work as and when they are held.
