Questions and Answers

Suzannah from Egypt I feel that when I change my suffering because I feel it to be unbearable and/or wrong, I learn to embrace it and then I feel like I am sold the lie that 1) I was suffering in the first place, 2) I needed to change my suffering because suffering is bad…

The Work in Georgia

Hi dear Katie, This is Tina, the one from Georgia (the country between Russia and Turkey) who was granted a scholarship by you at the School for The Work–July 2016. First of all I would love to say thank you again for your generosity and for this transformational opportunity that has changed my life, forever……

Letter from Katie

Hello, dear, dear family of the world. I do hope that you benefit from this letter, and if those of you new to The Work hear something that seems a bit beyond (or way beyond) the ordinary perspective or usual way of thinking in regard to life, death, or anything else, that you feel the…

Video: What is the School for The Work?

The School for The Work is a nine-day experience.— the ultimate inner adventure. Unlike every other school on earth, this one isn’t for learning, —it’s for unlearning. Spend nine days losing the fear-based stories you’ve innocently clung to all your life. They might be stories like “I’m not good enough,” or “I need a partner,”…

Gratitude for The Work

I’ve been thinking of you and sitting in gratitude for all that seemed to come from my meeting you. This strong feeling arose this morning as I was speaking with my sister. She was telling me all the ways her daughter was not up to being a mother. As I listened what arose in my…

Questioning It All

Dear Beloved Katie, Listening to your webcast today, I suddenly woke up to an entire new level of enquiry that I had previously been asleep to. I have done two nine-day Schools with you, and in each one I kept looking for the point of pain, the point of suffering. Of course this still exists—I…

The Work in Russia

Surviving Sexual Assault

On April 29th I was attacked by five armed men with balaclavas. I was tied up, beaten, and sexually assaulted. I realized that night that I might be killed. I remembered Byron Katie’s words when she spoke of having a gun put to her belly. “If these were your last breaths, wouldn’t you want to…
