New Year's Mental Cleanse | The Work

New Year's Mental Cleanse

This event took place in the past. For a current list of upcoming events with Byron Katie, click here.

29 December-1 January 2017
Los Angeles, California


Start the New Year 2017 with greater clarity and freedom.

The New Year’s Mental Cleanse is a rare and wonderful opportunity to spend four days immersed in the power of The Work. Join Byron Katie as she does The Work all day long with participants from all over the world. Katie’s deep insight and humor, her total accessibility, and her untiring commitment to your freedom are some of the reasons it has become an eagerly anticipated annual tradition.

Unlike the School for The Work and the No-Body Intensive, the Mental Cleanse has no curriculum. Katie takes her seat at 9:30 a.m. and facilitates The Work with one person after another throughout the day (she also answers questions from the audience). The last session of the Cleanse, on New Year’s Day, ends at noon.
