The School for The Work and Certification Program
There is only one authorized School for The Work, and it is presented by Byron Katie, who invites you to this powerful opportunity to discover that freedom is possible in every moment. The following sites are authorized websites for The Work:
Any other website that presents a School for The Work or a certification program for The Work is illegitimate. There are many people on the Internet today advertising workshops, courses, or trainings in The Work. Please don’t be fooled if you should stumble onto unauthorized certification programs for The Work. Facilitators/trainers who are certified and therefore authorized through Byron Katie International will always have a Certified Facilitator for The Work logo on their website, assuring you that what they offer is legitimate. For your convenience and for official verification, we proudly list these websites and profiles and their contact information on our Certified Facilitators page.
