While away with friends someone brought Loving What Is along. They were excited and all talking about this book and The Work of Byron Katie. At first, I wanted nothing to do with it. One thing I have learned is where I feel resistance; there is something for me to look at. So I went home from this weekend away and promptly got on the Internet and watched every video I could find. I was hooked! I purchased and read all the books and attended my first School in June 2007. After the School I experienced peace of mind for the first time in my life. At first I joined the certification program just to do The Work on a regular basis with a partner.
Over the last 5 years my passion for The Work has grown. The Work is now a daily part of my life. I notice how I judge my children/co-workers/friends, etc. on paper and do The Work on the stressful thoughts of my story, and the relationships change as I change. It really feels like these people are nicer now. When I get into my story and I am ready to face the truth, I really know all I have to do is write my story on paper (Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet) and do The Work on it and the truth will be revealed. What has really changed for me is I used to believe I was right ALL the time, and now deep down I know I am not. By doing The Work it shows me where I am confused.
I experience less anxiety, no longer wake up at 2:30 a.m. with racing thoughts, no more anxiety attacks, less anger, overall I am much happier and more peaceful, and I attribute this to writing out my stressful thoughts and questioning them.
I am excited to be offering workshops in The Work, customized to your particular topic.
I look forward to sharing/facilitating The Work with anyone who is interested in a more peaceful life. I especially like to work with anxiety, depression, fear, PTSD, stress, etc.
I am particularly interested in bringing The Work into high schools, colleges, universities, and businesses.
My business is Listening Unlimited and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
