" The Work is life-changing. The Innerland program provides a structure and community to support participants to dive deeply into these transformative processes. My relationship with my family, work and creative passions has transformed 180° over the past year due to this course and a beautiful part of this has been the fact that no one else in my life had to change for this transformation to happen. I've become clearer and more empowered and live with a greater sense of possibility and expansion that I had previously imagined for myself. The program is structured in a way that it could fit into my already very full schedule of parenting and career. Yet it had all the depth and the commitment one would wish from and immersion course. Tania is a gifted and brilliant facilitator and trainer. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to go deeper into The Work and discover and uncover their own freedom. "

Jacob Steele, Banyen Books Program Coordinator, 2014-2016 Coach Graduate

"Doing Inquiry is so uplifting, truthful and freeing and the method is so simple. Experiencing it with Tania, it becomes even more extraordinary. Her artful guidance blends fierce honesty, humour and humility and encourages us to move beyond the surface of our existence. Her lively and enlightened approach has helped me unpack mountains of interrelated, limiting beliefs and long-held behavioral patterns that weren’t serving me in my personal or professional life. I highly recommend Tania to individuals or groups who are ready to step toward a deeper engagement with life."

~ Jacob Steele, Banyen Books Program Coordinator, 2014-2016 Coach Graduate

" Innerland’s One Year Program is a master class in both The Work and the Self. The intimacy that grew within the group of people over the year, through partner work, in person, workshops, and teleclasses, was integral to the support needed to dive deep into ourselves. The highlight is certainly the graduation retreat, however, the experience wouldn't have been the same without the grounding of the year-long work. Tania and her Innerland team where unfailingly supportive and present for us. The curriculum provided was generously crafted to unhinge and loosen locked beliefs while also providing guidance on finding the way home to Self. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this program to those interested in immersing in The Work."

~ Debbie Bridge, ITW Candidate & Year-Long Graduate, 2015-2016

"I've just about finished the year long training in The Work of Byron Katie, and it has been literally life changing for me… and that's what I've been doing: The Work; the power of precise and sustained inquiry, and the difference between doing it once in a while, and being totally immersed in it, as we have been. I'm so grateful for the container that has held us."

~ Shayla Wright, Year-Long Graduate

"Doing The Work in the One Year Training Program has given me the tools to learn how to live with greater honesty, integrity, and with self-love. I came to this practice feeling at war with myself most days, unable to be aware and accept the many truths and aspects of my conditioning. The nature of The Work, the kindness, generosity and astuteness of group leader Tania Fierro, of the group as whole and of each individual within the group, has allowed me to share myself more fully and more openly with less fear and less shame than I have ever had. I have become more curious and often find humour to see what lies at the foot of my often-insane thinking. The support from our group and the continuous practice has allowed me to travel safely in recesses of my mind I might not have had the courage to explore on my own.  I strongly recommend this program; it has done so much for me. "

~ Lucie Lalumiere, Year-Long Graduate

"I find myself living in the present moment so much more since taking this training. My awareness is wider, expanding in a natural way. I feel increasingly capable in a peaceful curious manner to include more of life, more of myself and others.  I am softer and sharper ….meaning that I am alert, here, in a more open loving way than ever before. There is the capacity to have a more direct, honest experience of life.  I plan on continuing with this training as I love the immersion in The Work, there is no escape and I don’t want one!  The level of intimacy and connection that happens with the group  is a beautiful gift. Inquiry is becoming an inextricable part of me. I am being done!....  "

Guilt and regret are some of our most challenging and destructive emotions. These emotions particularly drain our lives and impede ourselves from connecting with others, while also moving us away form appreciating the true potential and beauty of the present moment. So JOIN US in finding what compassion and self-forgiveness actually mean and look like.

As we deeply realize that there is absolutely nothing that could possibly modify the past, we release our impossible expectations of having done or not done whatever we believe we should've done differently.

"Pedro is a master of "educating" in the radical sense of the word, i.e., Latin “educo”: to draw out or bring forth that which is already within"

~ Richard Hay author of "Out of My Mind and Back to My Senses, The Object of Life Is To Find Out Who I Am"


"This is the real deal.  Dr. Cortina's words are so profound and true.  I'm grateful for his understanding of the mind and his great capacity to bring it to the world in a helpful way."  

 ~ Dr. Lara Patriquin, MD

A Masterful "One Stop Shop" of a Book!

By Richard Hay author of "Out of My Mind and Back to My Senses, The Object of Life Is To Find Out Who I Am Before Time Runs Out."

A masterful "One Stop Shop" for everything you'll ever need to know about the "nuts and bolts" of the "human condition," how to transcend the "self-inflicted wounds" it naturally engenders and, even more importantly, how to maximize an as yet untapped Limitless Potential to Be -- not through personal self-effort that only serves to reinforces ego, but through a direct experience of that "Self-Same Limitless Nature of Being."

On a more personal note, as those of us who love the "heartfelt insights" Dr. Cortina's ingenious questions on Face Book inevitably call forth know, Pedro is a master of "...educating in the radical sense, i.e., Latin “educo”: to draw out or bring forth (that which is already within)".

Buy this book -- you won't be disappointed!

Author of "Out of My Mind and Back to My Senses" and

Previous WEBINAR SESSIONS with Dr. Cortina


Here is some of the feedback and takeaways from previous sessions:

Thank you Pedro! its been profound and eye-opener, specially in regards to keeping an agenda, thank you.

My takeaway is to be fearless in my work without attachment to outcome.

Thank you. I am reminded of the importance of getting still with Self.

Thank you for the reminder to trust the process.

Loved going deep with the idea of turning around the TAs...and looking carefully for agendas!

Thank you everyone and Pedro. That was wonderful. Inspiring. Love the pointers. The main one for me is about agenda! And questioning the TAs :)

I loved the analogy of the cute bunny only coming out of its hole when it's safe, perfectly quiet.

I appreciated you highlighting the agenda that appears with a positive turnaround and needing to then hold this up. I would love to talk with you sometime about how this worked in the area of self esteem Thank you.

Surrender has to be complete or it's not surrender

I so appreciated that you spoke to your full experience of your 15 years of the work - hitting the “agenda WALL” and moving beyond it! SO helpful. I also very much appreciate how you articulate your deep experience. Your mind sensibilities were much easier for me to align with. Thank you Pedro!

Trusting, living the moment of no need to defend.

There is absolutely nothing to hold onto

Thank you very much! Understanding the situation or forgiveness agendas? I can see lots of worksheets coming :) Very thoughtful and helpful! Thank you!!!

Thank you so much for your generous sharing of your experience Pedro.

Awarness, alive thank you!!

Love, to everyone. Gracias. Gracias. Gracias.

Thank you!! I love you for offering this! What a great tool for when I can’t seem to find the thought. Is this experience true? BRILLIANT!

This was intense! Will take this with me. Thank you all for being!

Take away:  Gratitude for this: Integrity is not abandoning your self for anything or any one.  Abiding Yourself Wholly.

Thank you Pedro for the freedom of inquiring and find myself in the present moment

I take with me that it is okay to Be Centered...to not be wonderful or to not be horrible...to just Be Centered allowing life to come as it will. Thank you Pedro. I have had thoughts that collide in confusion about "doing".

”This awareness has no enemies“…taking that with me! Catching humble glimpses.
Thank you sooo much! Adore you Pedro and ALL of you!

Thank You Pedro beautiful awareness!

A loving energy streamed through my heart as you started talking. I just sat with its beauty. Thank you.

I am ready to do (or not do) whatever it takes to stabilize this experience.

Thank you for giving so much of yourself

Loved the metaphor of daily practice being like making a path in the woods. Thank you!!


See you then!
