Counselling – THE WORK of Byron Katie

The Work of Byron Katie.

What is The Work?

The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. It's a way to understand what's hurting you, and to address your problems with clarity.
People who do The Work as an ongoing practice report life-changing results.

  • Reduced anger: Understand what makes you angry and resentful, and become less reactive, less often, with less intensity
  • Increased mental clarity: Live and work more intelligently and effectively, with integrity
  • More energy: Experience a new sense of ongoing vigor and well-being
  • More peace: Discover how to become "a lover of what is"

What others say of ‘The Work’ of Byron Katie

“Byron Katie is a spiritual innovator for the new millennium.”         TIME

“Katie's laser-like tough love burns away all illusions.”        The Times of London

 “Byron Katie’s Work is a great blessing for our planet. The root cause of suffering is identification with our thoughts, the ‘stories’ that are continuously running through our minds. The Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through that illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Joy, peace, and love emanate from it as your natural state.” Eckhart Tolle

“Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. She has been enormously
helpful to me personally. I love this very wise woman.”        Dr. Wayne W. Dyer author, Inspiration

“Byron Katie's teachings and everyday life are pure wisdom. Her Work shows us the way to inner peace, and she directs us there, fearlessly, relentlessly, and with utmost generosity.
I have rarely seen anyone—spiritual teachers included— embody wisdom as powerfully as Katie in her passionate embrace of each and every moment.”             Roshi Bernie Glassman

“Katie’s Work is a wonderful, transformative practice for anyone interested in spiritual growth.”
Lama Surya Das author, Awakening the Buddha Within

“Good Lord! Where did Byron Katie come from? She’s the real McCoy. Her Work is amazingly effective—a simple, straightforward antidote to the suffering we unnecessarily create for ourselves. She asks us to believe nothing, but provides a surprisingly effective and simple way to cut through the tangle of delusions we wrap ourselves in.”   David Chadwick - author, Crooked Cucumber: The Life and Zen Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki

“Suppose you could find a simple way to embrace your life with joy, stop arguing with reality, and achieve serenity in the midst of chaos. That is what Loving What Is offers. It is no less than a revolutionary way to live your life. The question is: are we brave enough to accept it?”
