Workshop Details

The Work of Byron Katie is a way to identify and question the thoughts that cause suffering in the world. The Work is astonishingly simple, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen and paper and a willingness to open the mind. In this workshop, Roxann Burroughs (Byron Katie’s daughter) will share her experiences in The Work and support you in finding practical ways to live the insights you find through inquiry.
When you do The Work, you see who you are by seeing who you think other people are. Eventually you come to see that everything outside you is a reflection of your own thinking. You will practice identifying your stressful thoughts and putting them on paper. You will do inquiry on the concepts you identify by using the four questions and “turnarounds”: 1. Is it true? 2. Can you absolutely know it is true? 3. How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought? 4. Who would you be without the thought? This workshop is open to everyone.
