The Work

of Byron Katie

How to find power in acceptance.

Are you arguing with what is?

When the mind is perfectly clear, “what is” is what we want. But, if you really want reality to be different than it is, you might as well try to teach a cat to bark, a bird to swim, or a fish to run. No matter your effort, arguing with the basic nature of reality is hopeless. If you pay attention, you’ll notice you indulge in thoughts like this all day: “People should be kinder.” “Children should behave.” “My spouse should agree with me.” “I should be thinner, prettier, and more successful." These thoughts are ways of wanting reality to be different than it is, and they introduce pain into our lives. When we embrace and accept what is, we inevitably overflow with joy.

Byron Katie

Byron Katie became severely depressed while in her thirties. Over a ten-year period, her depression deepened, and for the last two years, Katie was seldom able to leave her bedroom. Then one morning, from the depths of despair, she experienced a life-changing realization. Katie saw that when she believed her thoughts, she suffered; when she didn’t believe her thoughts, she didn’t suffer. What had been causing her depression was not the world around her, but what she believed about the world around her. In a flash of insight, The Work was born.

Praise for the Work of Byron Katie

Dr. Wayne Dyer

"Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time."

Eckhart Tolle

"Byron Katie’s Work . . . acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being."

Elizabeth Gilbert

"Byron Katie has rocked my world and shaken loose my mind more thoroughly than any other spiritual teacher, living or dead."

Tony Robbins

"I think Byron Katie is just a real thing. She’s pure and her intent is only to serve—she brings people back to reality so quickly."

Time Magazine

A spiritual innovator for the new millennium.

Los Angeles Times

Her method can cut through years of self-delusion and rationalization.

Turn the situation around and find the perspective you’ve been seeking.

We learn from others when we are able to see how their negative thought patterns reflect our own. Through nine personal sessions, we explore how the individual issues may be different, but the solutions apply to us all.

Stop living outside of your lane.

"When I think, 'You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,' I am in your business.

When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation.

If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine?"
