‘I don’t let go of concepts, I question them. Then they let go of me’ Byron Katie
What is your most painful, stressful thought that keeps replaying over and over again?
How would your life feel if that thought was gone…would you feel more joyful? More full of energy and connection and laughter? Who would you be without that thought?
The Work of Byron Katie is a radical approach that doesn’t have any answers – it has something better – the questions. People who use The Work experience extraordinary and lasting impact on their daily lives, in their relationships, career, with their health etc.
Time magazine called it “4 Questions to Inner Peace”
“An unquestioned mind is a world of suffering” Byron Katie
Instead of trying to suppress our judgments we have about others or life experiences we will use them as a starting point for self-realization. Doing so allows us to discover the real source of distress in life is only ever our thinking. As we cease trying desperately to get reality to match our stories of how it “should be” we start to experience the peace and happiness that comes when we stop wanting everything to be different than it is.
“When you argue with reality you lose, but only 100% of the time.” Byron Katie

“My own personal journey as a young child I would often lay on the ground in the dark, gaze at the night sky and look into the stars. I remember feeling that all was right in my world. I felt connected, at home, peaceful.
Then at the age of 8 my father died, suddenly. He drowned. Purposely, some suspect. As a child, I did not understand my father’s depression nor the mental illness that ran through his family, randomly carrying others on its tidal wave. I felt guilt, shame, not good enough and a deep sadness which became abiding unhappiness. I stopped looking at the sky. The stars went out.
From then on I lived my life on alert, looking for the next danger. I believed there was always something that could go wrong. I would try to control everything in my life and in the lives of others, particularly of those close to me. There was always something that might go wrong and I needed to manage it, control it, fix it. Nothing was ever right or good enough, including me! I used anger, criticism, and blame toward others and the world.
The Work helped me to unravel my learnt distrust. I learnt to notice when I’m on alert looking for the next danger and now find myself smiling at my old habits and need for control. It’s such a relief to understand that those long held beliefs and habits of anger, criticism, blame, and even self-loathing are simply reflections of a fearful mind”.
