The Work of Byron Katie
The Work of Byron Katie is a powerful form of self-inquiry, renowned for its simplicity and depth. It involves four key questions and a turnaround process, designed to explore and dissolve limiting beliefs. By challenging the thoughts that hold us back, The Work opens us up to significant shifts in perspective, empowering us to embrace life with a deep sense of freedom. The Work is not just a practice, but a powerful tool for achieving mental clarity and emotional release, paving the way to genuine inner peace and self-acceptance.
Our retreat is designed for a cozy group, limited to just 28 participants. We warmly welcome both beginners and advanced practitioners, aiming to create a supportive and inclusive environment for all levels of exploration in The Work.

I loved how the work was present, not just certain hours of the day, but as a way of living throughout the whole retreat.
With his endless compassion, kindness, friendship and love Ernest encourages and inspires into authenticity and vulnerability, helping me see and believe that everything can be met with love and understanding.

Spending time with Ernest and the other participants at the retreat in Arild, Sweden, was so much fun for me. It was also very intense and filled with hard work (for my ego). Luckily, the extremely beautiful surroundings, the cute house we were in and the patience and warmth from Ernest and the other participants, made it so much easier to really work through what ever came up during the time we were together.
After I have returned home from the retreat, so much more have come bubbling to the surface, waiting to be looked upon with understanding and love. Ernest is a great guide into doing this, and I feel so blessed that I have learned to do The Work even better now.
The Work is such a great gift, and the retreat in Arild turned out to be one as well.
Anja Dalby, Denmark
I feel it as if, those days in the most adorable Swedish nature brought me to a new level of honesty. I am so grateful for that experience.
Thank you Ernest for opening so generously for yourself and for showing me this direction towards freedom. This retreat was intensively fantastic.
Anna Franciere, Denmark
Attending this 5 days retreat was the best gift I’ve given myself in a very long time; true to promise, Ernest’s skillful facilitation helped me identify some of the most insidious beliefs in my life and address them in a way that rendered them void or at least, seriously incapacitated… What a relief!
It was intense work, yet the magnificent location and truly loving group atmosphere created by Ernest’s thoughtful organization made it possible to relax and accept to really be vulnerable – while feeling supported and safe the whole way.
I came back the next day to what had these past months been a stressful professional situation, and felt freed from the negativity; while at the same time energized to do my work – as well as continue doing The Work.
I’m really looking forward to the next opportunity to step out of time and into self-enquiry in such a friendly and supportive setting.
Thanks Ernest and thanks to everyone in the group!

This retreat was an AMAZING experience all the way.
My heart was overwhelmed with love and gratitude to have the opportunity for the space and silence to listen to my heart and dive deep in meditation while doing The Work. One more time, I was in awe with the power of love and truth, in awe with the vastness of nature and beauty.
The magical setting and a very small intimate group of beautiful human beings was the perfect mix.
Andrea Cruz, Spain
The retreat was the best thing that could have happened to me in a very confusing period of my life. It was an eye-opening experience that challenged my ego and inner stories. The nature, The Work, Ernest, and each participant wonderfully contributed in their own way to my discoveries.
Thank you so much for being you, being so open and being part of my healing process.
With lots of love,
Iveta Hobain, Lithuania
I experienced the retreat as a journey towards myself - and at the same time a journey towards others.
Ernest's way of facilitating brought forth a new level of insights about myself, which has been so meaningful on so many levels. I have left the retreat with what feels like a calmer and more loving approach to the world and myself.
Bitten Fynsk, Denmark
I really enjoyed this time - especially the connection and presence with the other participants.
This practice for me was like a role model to implement The Work deeper and deeper in my life and make this state of me an everyday lifestyle. Ernests way to help me meet the real me, to help me face me, takes much courage, but at the same time it is so organic and natural, it feels like a second skin.
Irina Pētersone, Latvia
It is an amazing, transformative experience to be guidet by Ernest in The Work as we shed light on the hidden beliefs that rule you from below. It is an experience of digging deeply and landing softly.
Line Mortensen, Denmark
The way Ernest shows up and shares his work invites me to see my unconscious parts. Parts I have convinced myself to be unwelcome and unloveable. Through the loving and welcoming inquiry, which Ernest inspires me to, I can welcome those parts back home.
Lene Andersen, Denmark
The work is an intelligent process to get to know more of the subconscious. “The awareness of the subconscious” is the portal to inner and outer peace. Earnest is brilliantly holding and leading this process. Thanks!
