Byron Katie’s ‘Work’ is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question the thoughts that cause your suffering in the world. It is a way to understand what’s hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity.

I attended Byron Katie’s ‘School’ in 2009 and it literally changed my life.  I had been a Reiki teacher for over a decade already but the pace of my personal growth was definitely stinted by my stubborn holding on to many destructive or unhelpful belief systems.  The Work of Byron Katie is a tool to help you see that nothing (and I mean nothing) that you believe is actually true.  This is a tough one to truly understand, but in the beginning you simply need to open to the possibility and start with the ‘bad stuff’.

Start by working on the stuff that is limiting you – and by that I mean any thought that creates stress or anxiety in your life.  The Work is a very simple tool but quite hard to fully grasp, this is why it is often useful to start in an introduction workshop or private session.

Please note: I am not a Facilitator of the Work and only share based on my own years of experience and personal understanding

Katie has lots of wonderful videos on YouTube, and her website resources including her Little Book is very well worth reading, all these are free resources.
