Omega Institute
Loving What Is: The Work with Byron Katie
2-4 June 2017
Rhinebeck, New York


For almost a decade, Byron Katie suffered from constant thoughts of suicide. Then one morning in 1986, she experienced a life-changing realization. “In that instant of no-time,” she says, “I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being.”

From this realization came The Work, an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, that requires nothing more than a pen and paper, and an open mind. The Work is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. As Katie guides you with her humor and lovingly incisive clarity, you will find that your stressful beliefs begin to radically shift.

Experience the freedom of undoing whatever makes you unhappy, and allow your mind to return to its true, awakened, peaceful, creative nature.

This workshop is also appropriate for professional counselors and life coaches who wish to use the information and techniques in their practice.
