Byron Katie

Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. When Katie appears, lives change. As she guides people through her simple and powerful process of inquiry, called The Work, they find again and again that their stressful beliefsabout life, other people, or themselvesradically shift. Through this process, anyone can learn to identify and question the thoughts that cause them pain. Katie not only teaches that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free.

It has been her heart's desire and tireless privilege to Work with hundreds of thousands of people at free public events, in prisons, hospitals, churches, corporations, universities, and schools. Participants at her weekend workshops and her unparalleled nine-day School for The Work report profound experiences and lasting transformations. Katies events are riveting to watch, the Times of London reported. Eckhart Tolle calls The Work a blessing for our planet. And Time magazine named Katie a spiritual innovator for the new millennium.

Byron Katie is the author of the bestselling books Loving What Is, I Need Your LoveIs That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are, and Question Your Thinking, Change the World. On her website,, you will find her blog, a list of upcoming events, a network of facilitators, a free hotline, audio and video clips, articles, and basic information about Katie and The Work, including free materials to download.
