School for The Work
WITH BYRON KATIE
The Center for The Work
The U.S.-based School for The Work is presented in English only.
The School Experience
The School provides a safe, loving, and supportive environment that meets you right where you are. The School for The Work isn’t for learning—it’s for unlearning. You’ll spend five days questioning the fear-based stories you’ve innocently clung to all your life. While immersed in inquiry, you’ll be free to explore life from an entirely new perspective that waits just beyond your stories.
At the School, participants and staff support one another as Byron Katie guides the group through a fascinating inward journey, free from the noise and distractions of everyday life. Often participants discover that the joy and peace found in their breakthroughs is matched and even strengthened by witnessing breakthroughs in others.
Many participants consider these to be the most important days they have ever spent. Insights and realizations continue long after the School has ended. People report that they experience life in a profoundly different way. For the first time they recognize that the universe is friendly, and they feel a powerful commitment to doing The Work as a daily practice.
The curriculum at the School is a living, evolving process, changing with the needs of the participants and on the basis of past students’ experiences. The exercises and activities are designed to mirror Byron Katie’s experience during the year after she woke up to reality in 1986.
You will work on your thoughts and difficulties about
- body image

The Morning Walk
Each day begins with a morning walk.
