Finding The Work

Dear Katie, I've come across The Work by chance, or so it seems. Was searching the web for something I completely forgot about afterwards (obviously wasn't important) and there was a link to your website. I was curious and went…

Letter: Saying Goodbye to Cigarettes

Another wonderful letter from a friend of The Work: I was thinking about the conversation that we had about my own experience with the School of You in L.A. last October . . . and about sharing a little of…

Peace on Earth

“I’m Alone in the World”—Is That True?

If this describes you during the holidays, it may help to know that you can call the HOTLINE service, offered at no charge by skilled facilitators who have completed the Nine-day School for The Work. These facilitators are available…

Inquiry—”I’m NOT Succeeding on My Own”

Participant: I’m mad at me because these days I don't succeed in earning my living on my own. Katie: Is that true? “You don't earn a living on your own”—is that true? Participant: I’m supported by my husband, and there's…

Letter: Doing The Work with Children

Here's a letter from a friend about her children doing The Work. If any of you have stories about your children doing The Work, I invite you to post them. Dear Katie, I wanted to tell you about how we…

True Charity

Do three kind and giving things every day. Don’t let anyone find out it is you. If they find out, start again!…

Dying on Time

Dying is just like living. It has its own way, and you can’t control it. People think, “I want to be conscious when I die.” That’s hopeless. Even wanting to be conscious ten minutes from now is hopeless. You can…

Hearing the Truth: Literal Listening

Practice listening to others in the most literal sense, believing exactly what they say without attaching a future to it, and do your best to resist falling into your own interpretations about the information they share with you. For example,…

Vanity

If you want to see who you are not, look in the mirror. Use the mirror once a day only. Who would you be without your mirror?…

Dealing with Fear and Terror

Practice reporting events to yourself as if a circumstance you find yourself in were actually a news story and you were the roving reporter. Announce exactly what your surroundings are and what’s happening “on the scene” at that very moment….

Taking Action in a Perfect World

The world is perfect. As you question your mind, this becomes more and more obvious. Mind changes, and as a result, the world changes. A clear mind heals everything that needs to be healed. It can never be fooled into…

Thank You

The School is over. But we know that it never ends. Thanks to everyone for coming—the participants, the volunteers, the staff. I love you all for the way you are. Remember, when you understand yourself, you understand the world….
