The podcast episode with Byron Katie, author of Loving What Is! Her work challenges people to confront their thoughts and ask yourself “Is this true?”
Byron shares how she has used the work to be able to forgive her past, people and the ego over how she saw things. How she has committed to a way of life and hasn’t looked back.
She invites people to look at others, point the finger, write those judgements down….. and then read those and question it, turn it around, and find a way to balance your mind.
How do you respond when you believe these things? What are ways that counteract your way of thinking? …… and who would you be WITHOUT this thought?
Byron Katie’s work gives you the opportunity to take control over a situation, to not allow yourself to fall victim to someone else’s actions. To stop SUFFERING. It can sound really wild to breakdown your thoughts to 4 simple steps. To let go of things, and find gentleness with not only others but yourself.
About my guest
In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Byron Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple yet powerful process of inquiry is called The Work.
The Work consists of four questions and the turnarounds, which are a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. When you question a thought, you see around it to the choices beyond suffering.
Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than thirty years. Her public events, weekend workshops, five-day intensives, nine-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House have brought freedom to people all over the world.
Byron Katie’s books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy, and A Mind at Home with Itself. For more information, visit thework.com.
