The Work began on a February morning in 1986, when Byron Katie woke up on the floor of a halfway house, at a complete dead end in her life, and began to laugh. She had woken up without any concept of who, where, or what she was. She awoke to the fundamental, luminous state of being that is without any separation, that experiences itself as pure love. Like great spiritual masters from many traditions, she knew she had reached the end of confusion and suffering. That was the moment she burst into laughter. Determined to give people a way to discover for themselves what she had realized, Katie developed a simple method of self-enquiry that she called The Work, a life-transforming system for discarding the stories we tell ourselves, which are the source of suffering, and replacing them with the truth ("what is") and a life of total joy. She began teaching The Work wherever she was invited - at first in small, informal gatherings and eventually to packed workshops around the world. The Work consists of only four simple questions that you can apply to any problem. It is so easy and practical - but also profound in its application.

We all have a lot to learn in this upside down world that's presently presenting many facets of trials and demanding endeavors. Economics is driving women and men to be emotional in some form and fashion. Today women and men are faced with many emotional encounters of sadness and madness. This emotional darkness is causing many of us to give little thought to our present issues, and react without thinking of the consequences that are very costly. Marriages and relationships are not lasting like the days of our grandparents, due to many catastrophic environmental and personal changes. Kids are lost because of the parents' issues of emotional stresses and emotional blindness. Parents are stressing and blaming the politicians for playing political games of power. Something has to be done about this topsy-turvy world of chaos! Only a few of us know that order comes out of chaos, but times has shown us that we have gone too far to turn back the stages of destruction! Or can we?
“A treat for any book lover, happily mated or cheerfully single” (USA TODAY)—two popular journalists give hilarious relationship advice borrowed from the most famous characters in literature. Finding love should be easier than ever before, given all the freedoms we enjoy. But as it turns out, the more options we have, the more difficult attaining romantic bliss becomes. We wonder: Should we put all our energy into online dating, or hang out in bars to find someone new? Should we settle for a friendship-with-benefits, or refuse to stop looking until we happen upon true love? And if we do manage to achieve the impossible and find a perfect match—soul mate, sexual dynamo, and best buddy all in one—how can we beat the relationship doldrums when they come, as they’re bound to in this hyperactive society? In our quest to reach romantic nirvana, we turn to self-help manuals, magazines, talk shows, friends, relatives, and shrinks. But we’ve overlooked the true font of wisdom: the timeless stories written by great novelists. That’s where Much Ado About Loving comes in. In its pages, two book lovers who are also advice columnists—Maura Kelly and Jack Murnighan—relay the lessons in life and love that they’ve learned from reading more classic novels than your English teacher, while having far more romantic conundrums than all of Jane Austen’s characters combined. They’ve done the heavy reading—and the recovering from heartbreak—for you. Now all you need is this book.
Bestselling author Byron Katie and accomplished, award-winning illustrator Hans Wilhelm team up for a modern retelling of the classic folk tale The Sky Is Falling—reimagined through the lens of Byron Katie's world-famous philosophy for living known as "The Work." Written for adults and children alike, in the form of a full-color, illustrated book, the wisdom contained in this beautiful work can have a profound effect on readers young and old.
‘Very illuminating...on the cutting edge of current biological research’ Jon Kabat-Zinn In A Mind At Home With Itself (her first full-length book since 2007), Byron Katie explains that emotions such as sadness, anger and resentment come from believing our stressful thoughts. When we learn to question the thoughts, they lose their power. And when this happens, our minds are free to turn towards others, and ourselves, with a spirit of generosity. Byron Katie gives approximately 25 hugely popular workshops every year, all over the world. In addition she speaks at such organisations as Facebook and Stanford University and is also involved with a programme for cancer patients. Charismatic and compassionate, there’s good reason why The Times has called her events ‘riveting’, and Time magazine has named her ‘a spiritual innovator for the new millennium.
