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

16-25 October 2015
Los Angeles, California


Join us for the ultimate inner adventure. Spend nine days losing the fear-based stories you've innocently clung to all your life. At the School you'll discover that your stories are everyone's, and everyone's stories are yours. You'll be supported so you can be completely yourself without fear of judgment, perhaps for the first time in your life.

The School curriculum is a living, evolving process, changing with the needs of the participants and on the basis of past students' experiences. Katie is both your teacher and your student, sharing questions and answers with an openness rarely found among leaders of her stature. The exercises and activities are designed to mirror the transformation Katie went through after her awakening to reality. You will be supported in issues such as gender, body image, addiction, money, and relationships, only to discover that you are not alone and you have nothing to fear.

The School for The Work is an immersion experience—an immersion in freedom. Each day during the School you may find yourself feeling freer and happier than the day before. Old habits may fall away like outworn clothes. You may find yourself eager to get up in the morning so that you won't miss a moment of this unfolding challenge.

The School for The Work is presented English.
