Cottage Country Retreat

“The world is as you perceive it to be. For me, clarity is a word for beauty. It’s what I am. And when I’m clear, I see only beauty. Nothing else is possible.”
— Byron Katie

Please join us for a 4-day summer weekend of self-inquiry at a private and spacious country house

surrounded by beautiful fields, forests and walking trails. Several lakes for swimming are close by.


We will be doing a curriculum with exercises designed by Share and Kathryn to move you from fear, anxiety and ruminating thoughts about the future to the clear mind which sees the tremendous peace and beauty in the way of things, and in you. In other words, reality.

You are welcome to come as you are, with everything you think is wrong with you and your life. If you feel that you are failing at life or that life & others are failing you, you are welcome. There is nothing, in our experience, that inquiry cannot meet. We, too, have felt all these things, know what it is to suffer, and how to come out the other side.


There is great power in gathering as a group to inquire — in-person retreats are potent places to get our Work done and catapult us into expanded awareness. If you feel trepidation at imagining being vulnerable in person … you can feel reassured that that, too, is welcome. We are all in this together.

You can expect to leave the retreat with a new understanding of life and yourself and with it a peace and gratitude at the way of it all. You will be equipped with the ability to question anything stressful that arises in your ongoing life experience and to continue to transform your consciousness.

​About the Hosts:

Share has been a certified facilitator for 7 years and has held several retreats in The Work both in Ontario and internationally during this time. She brings her considerable experience as a counsellor in private practice for over 25 years and training in trauma & abuse group work and grief counselling. She holds a diploma in Addictions Studies from McMaster University. Share has been through her own addiction, abuse as a child, and the near-death of her daughter and The Work has met all of it with The Work.


From Share: “Life with The Work supports my personal freedom. The Work is a part of my life as much as breathing. It is an ongoing practice that I live and allows me content contact and connection with truth. It is my heart’s desire to move The Work forward in our world.”


Kathryn was certified as a facilitator in 2015 and has taught The Work in university classrooms, workshops and independent courses ever since. She loves designing exercises that are born out of her own path in self-inquiry, especially around fear, anxiety & PTSD, and self-esteem & confidence. Kathryn also works one-on-one with clients in one-month and three-month programs using The Work.


Her 2013 PhD dissertation focused on the nature of mind, consciousness, and self-inquiry and includes her experiences with The Work along with her other mystical, direct experiences. She is the author of the book Awake: Education for Enlightenment and is the single parent of a 20-year old daughter whom she raised with The Work.

From Kathryn: “Ever since I came across The Work, it has been at the centre of my life. Although I had researched the nature of self and the conditioned mind extensively before it, self-inquiry moved me from an intellectual-conceptual understanding to an experiential one. It is everything.”

What People Are Saying:

“Share's compassionate, humble, and wise facilitation makes participants feel safe and loved so they can tell the truth...and helps them feel brave enough to find out if what they believe might not be true. Therein lies the great delight - to discover right to the core that one's toxic thoughts are not real.”



“Share's wisdom & authenticity allowed her to create a setting safe enough for me to get my Work done! Her gentle, loving persistence allowed for me to explore unchartered territory and leave freer and more at peace. I definitely got what I came for and I will do all I can to come back again and again.” 


 I came to Kathryn's workshop expecting to learn some things I didn't already know but I did not expect the transformational experience that happened. It really helped me. I feel different after; I left feeling so happy, free, and light. Thank you, thank you so much.


“Having someone, like Kathryn, to witness and support me and my work has been valuable. Hearing insights echoed back and being able to read insights that Kathryn had written from our time together was incredibly validating and valuable. Some I hadn’t remembered until seeing them written down. Something about Kathryn just feels safe. I would recommend her to any family, friends, neighbours that are looking to do The Work. Can’t wait until she runs a retreat!!!!”
