Scott Kiloby is coming to Nevada County, CA for a third time, joining Mihai Algiu for a 2.5-day immersive workshop where you’ll learn to deprogram your suffering and loosen your sense of separation.
This weekend immersion is a wonderful opportunity to work directly with Scott and Mihai in a group environment (40-person max capacity). You will receive personal assistance using the KI tools, as well as preparing the groundwork for level 2 KI, where we tackle the emotional repression driving chronic contractions, chronic pain, and addiction.
Over the weekend, you will learn how to utilize the Kiloby Inquiries tools within a reality-based, unconditionally loving environment (i.e., the New Model of Recovery) in which we will explore our subconscious imprints from childhood that no longer serve us, including wounded identities, deficiency stories, strategic adaptations, and patterns of beliefs and reactivity.
In this experiential retreat based on the principles, mechanics, and tools of the Kiloby Inquiries, Scott and Mihai will lead a series of talks and teachings followed by group discussion, one-on-one sessions, self-inquiry, and peer-support.
This event will take place on the following dates:

Mihai Algiu was born in Eastern Europe, Romania, during the communist totalitarian regime. Mihai started being interested in spirituality, truth, mind, and consciousness as a teenager. He spent over 25 years studying various Eastern teachings such as the Fourth Way, (the Gurdjieff ~Oupsensky system), Qi Qong, Zen, Vipassana, Non-Duality, Advaita Vedanta, and the Direct Path. Among the many influences that shaped his understanding of spirituality as well as his therapeutical orientation are: Gurdjieff-Ouspensky, The Fourth Way, David Hawkins, Thich Nhat Hanh, Adyashanti, Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, Rupert Spira, Isaac Shapiro, etc.
In 2015, Mihai met his current teachers, Francis Lucille and Laura Lucille, which became a turning point towards deepening into the study and application of the Non-Dual Direct Path. About the same time, Mihai became deeply interested in somatic awareness-based psychotherapy (Hakomi) and began leading shadow work groups for the Mankind Project in Sierra Foothills, California, and inside Folsom Prison for the Inside Circle Foundation. He is currently working with individuals, couples, groups as a psychotherapist. He also leads weekly Circle of Being Shadow Work groups, as well as intensives and retreats. He has been living in the Sierra foothills for the last 15 years where he enjoys nature, hot springs, archery, and music.
“I view psychotherapy as a useful tool and support towards our innate pursuit of happiness, contentment, and harmony. Whether recovering from years of addiction, healing from the aftermath of past wounds, navigating difficult relationship dynamics, dealing with trauma, loss, transition, uncovering old programmed limiting beliefs… our innate authentic self/spirit strives towards wholeness and being in harmony with all things. My approach is experiential, effective, and practical, influenced by Hakomi, Mindfulness-Based Somatic Psychotherapy, Shadow Work, Gestalt, Psychodrama, Attachment Theory, CBT, as well as a variety of Eastern spiritual teachings (Advaita, 4th Way). I have extensive experience working with men, women, and youth in crisis, as well as incarcerated men. I have a client-centered approach guiding the client back to their own innate inner wisdom, strengths, and authentic self. I consider mindfulness and self-inquiry as an important ingredient in the process of healing, freedom from unnecessary suffering, and being happy celebrating the miracle of life.”

Scott Kiloby is a noted international speaker, well-respected enlightenment (nonduality) teacher who has helped thousands of people all over the world, an entrepreneur, creative spirit, and a prolific author of seven books that simplify and demystify authentic spiritual awakening as it is taught in the East.
Scott has broken new ground in a number of areas, including being the co-founder and owner of the first two treatment centers in the U.S. to focus primarily on mindfulness and non-dual awareness as the central path to freedom in recovery, the Kiloby Center for Recovery (day treatment) and the Natural Rest House (24-hour care facility).
Scott is an innovator in the addiction field, which for decades has shamed, judged, punished, and instilled fear into clients to keep them clean (with a relatively low success rate). After studying that archaic model, Scott developed the New Model of Recovery which contains a zero-tolerance for shaming, judging, or punishing people whether they are using or not.
Instead, Scott focuses on showing people unconditional love and using the Kiloby Inquiries to heal their pain that drives the addiction in the first place. This has been the central key to the success of Scott’s work.
Scott’s work is in no way limited to addiction recovery. Scott is also the developer of several forms of inquiry that help people with a wide array of human suffering other than addiction such as trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, OCD, and general unhappiness with life by teaching them to live in the present moment instead of “in their heads.”
Scott’s work is considered to be on the innovative edge of enlightenment teachings and in the recovery and trauma world.
Dan McLintock is a Certified Facilitator, Trainer and the Co-Developer of the Kiloby Inquiries method/approach the New Model of Recovery along w Scott Kiloby.
A Jacksonville, Florida native, Dan graduated Flagler College in 2004 with B.A. in Theatre Arts and English Literature and has played music professionally in bands for over 20 years. But his true passion lies in sharing the context, possibility and practicality of healing, awakening and release.
Dan has worked one-on-one with clients in and out of the Kiloby Center since 2017 and has an unconditionally loving and earnest approach to healing trauma, dissolving the drivers of addiction/suffering and unhooking long-held toxic beliefs about ourselves, others and the world at large.
He’s also worked intensively, side-by-side with Scott Kiloby for the past three years to develop the transformative tools of the Kiloby Inquiries as well as the principles and approach of the “New Model of Recovery” rooted in unconditional love and non-judgment. Much of this approach was borne out of Scott and Dan’s work with each other on their own personal traumas as well as their work with clients at the Kiloby Center.
Scott and Dan have simplified, demystified and condensed some of the principles and practices of eastern/non-dual spirituality into an easily accessible set of tools most anyone can understand, learn and utilize to free themselves from their own suffering.

For most of my life I’ve wondered who I am and why I am here. As I was growing up, no one else seemed to be talking about these things, or even thinking about them, so I buried it deep inside and tried my best to fit in the way I was “supposed” to, all the while feeling like there was something desperately wrong with me and that I needed to fix it.
In my early thirties, the death of a young relative left me feeling hopeless and helpless, wondering what is the point of life if we’re all just going to die anyway? This launched me on a search. I didn’t even know what I was looking for, I just knew that there was a longing – a desperate longing for something that actually made sense about life. I learned several alternative spiritual and healing techniques. I meditated. I read books and watched videos. I eventually learned of non-duality teachings, and I read more books, watched more videos, and even sat with several ‘awakened’ teachers. Yet I was still searching, something still felt missing. I was looking for the key that would unlock the mystery of me and of life.
In my early forties, I developed a chronic health condition that left me unable to work for several years, and most days barely able to get out of bed due to extreme fatigue, brain fog and pain. I lost my banking job, and eventually lost my home. I saw a multitude of doctors to try to find out what was wrong with me, and used every tool in my metaphysical and alternative medicine toolkit to try to heal myself. My seeking became even more intense, and I was looking for a way to escape my pain.
In 2009, I met Scott Kiloby. Since I started working with him and doing the Living Inquiries, the seeking for enlightenment has stopped, and the question of ‘who am I’ is no longer relevant. My victim stories around my health started falling away. Once I started looking at my experience through inquiry, everything changed. I stopped chasing something ‘out there.’ I no longer seek some future state of happiness or peace. This is not to say that I don’t have problems, or ever experience pain. Quite the contrary. I still use the inquiries regularly, and now there is much less avoidance or resistance to what I’m experiencing. I experience more and more freedom in the present moment, exactly as it appears.
Having trained with Scott, I was one of the first to be certified as a Senior Living Inquiries Facilitator and Trainer in early 2012. In 2014, I moved to CA and became a business partner with Scott at The Kiloby Center for Recovery, where we worked with people suffering from addiction, anxiety, depression and more for the next 8 years.
I can’t imagine my life without these inquiries. They saved me from myself. If you are still suffering, searching, longing… I encourage you to give this a try.
As a young child I saw a picture of Jesus gazing lovingly at some children around his feet. I immediately longed for the unconditional love I saw in his gaze. At the same time, I was being read fairy tales, like Cinderella, and came to believe that romantic love would satisfy that longing for love.
So, I married my handsome prince at age 19. But then, by age 29, I found myself alone, as a single mother, with four young children. I was devastated and convinced that something was terribly wrong with me, to have ended up in such a predicament.
I had learned to love and please others, but not how to love and respect myself. I was a “good girl,” and repressed my urges to have my own needs acknowledged and met. A wise teacher later told me, “We need to love everyone, including ourselves.” This was an amazing revelation for me!
Learning to meditate helped immensely to bring moments of peace, while I was sitting still, though I was still being triggered regularly in my relationships. Finally, the Kiloby Inquiries taught me how to turn my attention inside in daily life – towards the trapped thoughts and emotions I’d been running from – so that I could face and release them. It was like some tender, lost children began coming home, to take their rightful place in my inner world.
I am honored and excited to be able to facilitate these wonderful inquiries for others.
