Thank you, Katie, for such an amazing experience." --Nate Klemp, Ph D, Co-Founder of LIFE XT, Co-Author of Start Here: Mastering the Lifelong Habit of Wellbeing “I have done a lot of work on conflict resolution with young Serbians and Albanians in Kosovo and on conflict resolution in general, on resilience empowerment with teachers, parents, and vulnerable groups.Before I came to the School, I knew it was going to be a very valuable experience and that I would benefit from it, as would all the people I work with, but I had no idea…You'll facilitate your classmates' Work as they open up to themselves.
Throughout the School, I had a living feeling that I was being invited into greatness.There were times when it was hard, when I felt I was wrestling with an invisible force that was causing me excruciating pain, but nevertheless, the feeling never left me—that I had come across something so valuable and so precious and that I had an opportunity to partake in the greatness of that which IS and of which I am a part.I went into the retreat feeling some pretty intense stress.I left feeling a sense of freedom, seeing that my mind was creating all sorts of drama that could be released through The Work."On the first evening of the School, I often ask the participants what they want to take home from the School.
They say things like “I want peace of mind” or “I want to be a more loving person” or “I want to be happy with or without my partner.” By the end of the School, I hear again and again that they have found what they were looking for.
The School for The Work begins the first day at p.m. The exercises and activities are designed to mirror the transformation Katie herself went through after she woke up to reality in 1986.
You will work on issues such as gender, sex, fear, body image, addiction, money, and relationships of every kind.
You'll spend nine days losing the fear-based stories you've innocently clung to all your life.
They might be stories like “I'm not good enough” or “I need a partner” or “I'll never get over it” or “I have to be in control.” Who would you be without those stressful stories?
I loved the feeling of being stretched to the very limits of my emotional capacity, all the while knowing that, if I needed it, I had a ton of support.
