Helena Montelius
Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie
Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant
Welcome to my website!
I am grateful and honored to share the two loves of my
life, Inquiry & Ceremony, the Buddha & the rose petals,
with you.
The Work Inquiry has been, and continues to be, the most powerful practice I have found for spiritual awakening.
The Work held me through the darkest nights of my soul
and helps me transform everyday frustrations, like those
dirty dishes in the sink!
Ceremony is not only a way to celebrate uplifting life transitions, like births and weddings, ceremony is also a way to healing, forgiveness, finding deeper meaning and moving forward during heart breaking life passages.
I work to support inner peace and awakening in the world.
I would love to share The Work and/or co-create a sacred ceremony with you.

Dear Friends,
fall is here...such a sweet break from the California heat!
I love how fall and winter offers the opportunity to look within and meditate more and I hope you will join me for some of the classes I offer this fall.
Whether you are new to inquiry or more experienced it is always sweet to have a beginners mind and allow yourself to be open to new places in your inquiry. Joining an on-line class offers a great way to stay in the practice, have support for questions and a sangha (community) to share your insights with.

Fall and winter also offers so many opportunities for sacred ceremonies; candle lightings, fire circles, harvesting rituals, decorating together etc... 
Hope you are loving it as much as I do...
Namaste & Blessings, Helena
