The Work of Byron KatieThe Work™ of Byron Katie is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause all the suffering in your life. It's a way to understand and be aware of yourself, to find what's hurting you and begin to end your stress and suffering.

The Work of Byron Katie to experience your true natureDo any of these thoughts sound familiar?
“I need to know what to do.”
“Life isn’t fair.”
“There’s not enough time.”
“I know what you need.”
“There’s too much to do.”
“S/He rejected me.”
“There’s something wrong with me.”
“I am too fat, too old, too sick, too short, too tall, too… too… too…”

The more we begin to learn about our own mind, the more we discover how we all share the same thoughts and beliefs. We begin to realize that our inner world, our perceptions, judgments and stories are the source of our suffering. Once we identify the stressful thought, we ask ourselves four questions and see if we can discover how the opposite could just as true if not truer than the original belief.

  • The weekend was very powerful and I feel renewed and ready to do The Work consistently, and meditate more. I meditated this morning with your meditation CD and it was very peaceful. I think I will carry it through the day.–Lynn, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

  • Thanks again for amazing weekend. It was a real gift to myself. You are a natural leader of such experiences. It is obvious that The Work is your passion. Everyone seemed to get what they needed.–Terri, The Work Eco-retreat

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...the weekend made a significant impression on my ability to look at life.I am going to be able more present. I have a feeling that The Work is something I will never let go of. I enjoyed your company and thanks for being you!–Chrystal, The Work Eco-Retreat

  • Jen, Tender work today, thank you... So exciting to imagine a world where our deepest shame can be beheld by another, mirrored back, and in that moment of inquiry be delivered into a sweet, sacred, experience of unconditional love...for ourselves! Grace as oxygen.–MLB, Michigan

  • The Work™ is amazing. I was ready to not talk to my sister for a very long time. I had a lot of thoughts that were separating me from her. Jen took me through one session and it just turned everything around IN ME. My sister didn't change, but it doesn't make any difference because the thoughts and emotions of pain and hurt are gone.–SJW, Kansas City

  • The School for The Work™ is unlike any other school on earth - instead of focusing on learning, students unlearn the fearful stories we have innocently attached to. Graduates are prepared to facilitate this transformative and simple method in unleashing stressful thoughts and beliefs that cause internal pain and suffering. Being free doesn't come from learning new concepts. It is who you already are once your limiting beliefs have been met with understanding.–Byron Katie
