A Mind at Home with Itself



A Mind at Home with Itself

From Stephen:

“Katie and I are excited about the publication of A Mind at Home with Itself, which takes the reader to places that are deeper than anywhere Katie’s books have gone before. In addition, the book includes stories from Katie’s earlier years that have never been published before—stories that are dramatic, moving, sometimes hair-raising, and always illuminating. When you read it, you’ll see the world once again, even more clearly, through the eyes of someone radically awake to what is.

“Those of you who have attended the No-Body Intensive will recognize that A Mind at Home with Itself is parallel to that experience in the same way that A Thousand Names for Joy is parallel to the School for the Work.”

The Work in Russia

Dearest Katie,

Thank you for sharing The Work with the world.

I just came back from Russia, where we had the most joyful and wonderful Work event with 48 participants, and then there was a wonderful one in Kiev, Ukraine.

It is difficult to describe the joy, warmth, and love that were there, so many open hearts and so much connection. Thank you so much for all your blessings and support and for inviting the dear ones to the School.

With love and gratitude,


The Work in Russia

The Work and Mindfulness

Apart from my current job, I am taking a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher Training program to become one of the very first MBSR teachers in Croatia. I feel great appreciation for the MBSR program and the work of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and was sad to find none of it is familiar in Croatia - almost no MBSR courses are available here and mindfulness practice in schools, hospitals, business, etc. is very modest, if there is any. I therefore decided to do the training on my own and bring MBSR and mindfulness practice in general to my country, to start speaking up for its benefits. According to the current dynamic of my training, I would start teaching MBSR courses in January 2018. I have the same sense of gratitude for The Work of Byron Katie. Benefits that I have personally experienced from doing The Work in this short period of time since I found out about it are enormous, but I find a lot of "work" is here to be done and find the School would be the most efficient way to do it. I believe the experience of attending the School for the Work would be a valuable addition to my MBSR courses, both for my personal role as a teacher and for my students as well. From what I am learning about The Work, I believe MBSR participants would deepen their experience enormously by getting in touch with how they can approach their thoughts once they have recognized them as thoughts. It is my heart's desire that in my country as many people as possible will enroll with the MBSR courses and learn about The Work, and in that way, make their conscious steps towards living their lives free from mind's conditioning and suffering that it causes. As I see it, every single person that "comes home" in such a way stops spreading reflections of his or her imprisonment to the outer world, stops projecting the suffering to his or her beloved ones and becomes an inspiration for other people who cross his or her path, which creates a better world in an instant. Granting me a scholarship to attend the School for the Work would enable me to pursue this approach thoroughly.
