“It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the ‘I Am,’ our real presence, can awaken.”

G.I. Gurdjieff  

During this 5 hour program, Brenda will introduce you to and guide you through the transformative process of the Dyad Self Inquiry: an age old practice which is an opportunity to inquire deeply into one’s True nature and to communicate from that place of presence.

It is also an opportunity to hone our listening and presence skills as we support others through our deep attention and space-holding.

As great challenge and change swirls around us in the outer world, it seems more vital than ever before to return to the wisdom of the heart; to access our powerful ability to affect change within our own Being and therefore in the world.

Join Brenda for a day where we tend to our own inner transformation and support others as they tend to theirs.


Dyad self-inquiry can support us in cultivating a more accessible and clear line of communication with our deeper knowing; a reconnection with our True essence.


In the process of Dyad Self-Inquiry (developed by Charles and Ava Berner in the 1960’s) we sit across from another person, taking turns being the “listener” and the “speaker”.

Various inquiry questions are contemplated by the speaking partner while the listening partner holds non-judgemental, silent, deep listening space. After a 5 minute bell sounds, the partners switch roles.

The afternoon will also be sprinkled with mantra singing, inspiring sharing and meditation.

The retreat day will have a maximum of 12 participants, so be sure to register early.



The benefits are numerous – here are just a few:

  • an opportunity to see past our habitual identifications and deepen into our essential nature
  • A feeling of connection within oneself and with others
  • A sense of well-being and a lessening of stress
  • Develop our listening skills
  • The possibility of directly experiencing the source of one’s beingness and beginning to live from that place

This remarkable process allows for a clearing of the mind and an opening of space within.
