The Work of Byron Katie
About This Show
Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through the powerful process of inquiry she calls The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs—about life, other people, or themselves—radically shift and their lives are changed forever. Based on Byron Katie's direct experience of how suffering is created and ended, The Work is an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind. Through this process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and deal with it there. Katie (as everyone calls her) not only shows us that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free.

Interview—A Mind at Home with Itself—Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell
3 days ago
Lisa Natoli interviews Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell about their newly released book, "A Mind at Home with Itself." The book is structured around The Diamond Sutra, a Buddhist text whose main point is generosity. "The more you realize that there's no such thing as a self--that in reality there is no separation between self and other--the more naturally you become a generous human being," Stephen explains. Lisa reads briefly from the book: "How can we be generous, not just occasionally, but all the time--every day of our lives? It sounds impossible, but what if it's not? What if generosity can become as natural as breathing? This book shows you how." Katie adds, "No-self means selflessness, which is a fearless state of mind. Other than the thoughts we attach to, which cause fear, we are selfless." Lisa and Katie continue delving deeply into the process of breaking free from the trance that keeps us from reality--from our truly generous selves.
