Byron Katie

Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through the powerful process of inquiry called The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs-about life, other people, or themselves- radically shift and their lives are changed forever. Based on Byron Katie’s direct experience of how suffering is created and ended, The Work is an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen and paper and an open mind. Through this process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and eliminate it there. Katie (as everyone calls her) not only shows us that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free. Katie is the author of three bestselling books: Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life (with Stephen Mitchell); I Need Your Love-Is That True?: How to Stop Seeking Love, Approval, and Appreciation and Start Finding Them Instead (with Michael Katz); and A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are (with Stephen Mitchell). Question Your Thinking, Change the World: Quotations from Byron Katie was published in 2007, and Katie’s latest book, Who Would You Be Without Your Story?, released October 15th, is now available. Byron Katie was a guest on the radio show “Healing the Grieving Heart “ talking about “Loving What Is.” To hear Byron being interviewed on this show by Dr. Gloria & Dr. Heidi Horsley, go to:
