In 2009 a friend gave me a CD recording of Katie’s book Loving What Is. Every morning before going to work I spent fifteen minutes on my trampoline and instead of listening to music I listened to this reading. It all seemed a bit too simple. And yet, I noticed I went to work happier each day. I hadn’t even done The Work, I had just been given a glimpse of another way to deal with thoughts. Life suddenly seemed lighter—I was intrigued.
Learning to do inquiry myself and facilitating others took the experience to a whole different level. I began doing The Work on various topics of my life: relationships, family, the body, and my job as a teacher. On the outside, things didn’t change that much. What mostly changed was the way I experienced my daily routine. Conflicts were resolved more quickly and there was a new, positive curiosity about situations that had only seemed negative before.
To me The Work is an excellent tool to slow down the mind and to find your own answers from a calmer place. I love the openness and freedom that come with expressing our thoughts honestly on paper—and then questioning them. I love the humor that can appear when an old concept suddenly shifts.
As a facilitator I offer individual sessions in German and English via skype and in person as well as group workshops. Any topic is welcome.
