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 she calls 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, paper, and an open mind. Through this process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and deal with 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.

    Byron Katie Live from Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Episode Two

    Byron Katie Live from Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Episode Two

    This episode of The Work of Byron Katie podcast is a continuation from last week's episode, recorded live from Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.
    To begin, participants at the event ask questions following an inquiry between Byron Katie and an event participant (available in last week's episode). Byron Katie offers her experience to participants who have various questions about The Work, including how to do the Turnarounds. Next, Byron Katie and a participant practice inquiry on a powerful list of complaints.
    __
    The Work is meditation. It is a method of inquiry born directly out of Byron Katie's experience. This practice allows you to access the wisdom that always exists within you.
    As we do The Work of Byron Katie, not only do we remain alert to our stressful thoughts--the ones that cause all the anger, sadness, and frustration in our world--but we question them, and through that questioning, the thoughts lose their power over us. Great spiritual texts describe the what--what it means to be free. The Work is the how. It shows you exactly how to identify and question any thought that would keep you from that freedom.
    Everything you need to do The Work is available free of charge at byronkatie.com.
    This is Episode Two of Four. Please tune in next week for the next episode.

    Byron Katie Live from Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Episode One

    Byron Katie Live from Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Episode One

    This episode featuring The Work was recorded at an event with Byron Katie at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA. In this episode, we hear Byron Katie's opening remarks and an introduction to her "I complain about" exercise. In this exercise, you are invited to make a list of complaints by completing the phrase:
    I complain about (write a person's name) because (write your reason).
    For example, I complain about my mother because she lied to me.
    Next, Byron Katie moves into The Work, which is a simple, yet powerful process of questioning our stressful beliefs. A participant in the audience reads her complaint, "I complain about my son's disease because it causes him to suffer." Byron Katie then facilitates this participant on the thought, "My son's disease causes him to suffer." This is Episode One of Three.
    Please tune in next week for the next episode.
    Everything you need to do The Work is available free at byronkatie.com.
