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. Blessings.

January 14, 2014:
Dear Friends,
feeling deep gratitude for the amazing events and seminars of 2013 and excited for this up-coming year 2014 of offerings. The class I am teaching with Cindy Ross on our beliefs about teachers is my first class I teach through ITW (Institute for the Work)!
The first Ending the war Within class was so powerful that the participant asked for an extension, so now I am presenting it in the new 8-week format. It was profoundly moving to go so deep together and heal places of shame, self-hate and comparison.
The dolphins have been calling me to come back to Hawaii, so I am returning and hope you can come to this potently, powerful and fun combination of letting go of our stories as we play with the dolphins.

Namaste & Blessings, Helena
