Interview: Uncovering Happiness Symposium

Video Description: 
Elisha Goldstein, author of Uncovering Happiness, The Now Effect, and Mindfulness Meditations for the Anxious Traveler interviews Byron Katie. His primary question is "How do we make the idea of happiness practical?" Katie explains the process of self-inquiry she calls The Work: The Four Questions of The Work of Byron Katie 1. Is it true? (Yes or no. If no, move to 3.) 2. Can you absolutely know that it's true? (Yes or no.) 3. How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought? 4. Who would you be without the thought? Elisha shares his understanding of questions two and three: "Asking the second question, you've allowed for a little more space between your awareness and the story itself. And question three seems to be more experiential as one meditates on, or brings some mindfulness to, what reaction occurs in the body and mind in response to believing a thought." Enjoy this rich exploration of The Work. "I questioned my thoughts and was left with what's already there: my true nature—the immovable." —Byron Katie
