What is theWork?

The Work, a process created by Byron Katie, is a simple and powerful means of inquiry that teaches us to identify the thoughts that cause our suffering (anger, fear, depression, addiction) and then question them. It is a way to understand what’s hurting you and to address the cause of your problems with clarity. It requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind.

When we want something to be different than it is, we’re fighting with reality and, ultimately, frustration and stress settle in.  The Work, as a practice, is a way of holding up our stressful thoughts to four questions and Turn Arounds (seeing how the opposite of a thought could also be true).  Once we introduce inquiry or The Work to our stressful thinking, our lives are never the same again.
