“The Work” as Katie calls it, is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world.
It’s a way of understanding what’s hurting you so you can address the cause of your problems with clarity. “The work” is a straightforward practice of asking yourself 4 questions and turnarounds. That’s it.
People who do “The Work” as an ongoing practice commonly report:
Alleviation of Depression
Find resolution, even happiness, in situations that were once debilitating.
Learn how to live with less anxiety or fear.
Experience a deeper connection and intimacy with your partner, your parents, your friends, your children and yourself.
Understand what makes you angry and resentful, and become less reactive, less often, with less intensity.
Increase Mental Clarity
Live and work more intelligently and effectively, with integrity.
Experience a sense of ongoing vigour and well-being.
“I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone always” – Byron Katie
