Helena Montelius
Founder of Look Within Institute
Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie
Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant
Welcome to the Institutes 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, like when my son's body died, 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 end inner suffering and to create inner peace and awakening in the world.
I would love to share The Work and/or co-create a sacred ceremony with you.

June15th, 2015!

Happy Summer!
I am in the midst of packing up for a month of travelling in Europe with my 15-year-old daughter. I am giving myself this precious gift of adventure and quality time with my girl, so I may be sporadic in responding to messages and e-mails. I will be back July 17th.
Come join us in Amorgos or for the Sierraville retreat in California in August.

The classes Look Within Institute offers are small and intimate (often 10-20 people) and gives you a real space for
looking deeper within, personalized support and a safe space to share with other participants struggling with and seeking healing with the same issues as you. The meditation and The Work inquiry are always deepened by ritual elements and ceremony to ground, honor and celebrate our inner shifts in our classes.
Welcome to this community of  truth lovers celebrating life!

Namaste & Blessings, Helena.
