Mayte Boullosa Doval

Existe en mi una clara fascinación por la belleza.  Cada vez que paso frente a un vidrio roto, tengo un impulso tremendo de hacer algo para repararlo, de llevarlo a su estado original, de entenderlo y reconstruirlo, del mismo modo, aprecio mi mente cuando está quieta, si un pensamiento estresante aparece, tengo el impulso de someterlo a la indagación que The Work me ofrece. Ofrezco The Work como un puente que te llevará de regreso a ti mismo, a tu verdadero hogar y te hará experimentar el amor y la humildad necesarias para amar tu vida.  Haz The Work por un único motivo: hazlo por amor a la verdad. Puedes contactarme para hacer The Work o indagación filosófica!

Lynnene Lewis

Reading about The Work was interesting and powerful for me, but experiencing The Work through the teaching of Tania Fierro was life changing.  Watching Tania describe and share The Work with others inspired me like nothing ever had.  I was so motivated by Tania’s workshops that I was willing to face some pretty big fears and commit to the year long Immersion program.  At the end of the year, I wanted more and gave myself the gift of another year.  Through The Work I’ve become a lover of Truth.   It’s not that life is different; it’s that I can be OK with the ALL that life brings.  I’m not done by any means, but I strongly believe that this is the express route to freedom; I am so grateful.    I’d love to support your journey by facilitating your inquiry.
