Video: Byron Katie: The Work

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

In this piece explains how ‘The Work’ can be helpful and beneficial to people who are struggling as a result of their own negative thoughts.

Many people will be able to relate to some of the thought processes that are discussed in this video; helpless, lost and alone. People believe that their suffering is unique and that the world is how they themselves perceive it to be.

However, Katie explains that by engaging in a process called ‘turnaround’ a person will be able to see that their thoughts are often unfounded. This involves people taking each thought and turning it around to the opposite meaning.

Katie says: “The work is a way to identify thoughts that cause all the suffering and violence in the world. Anyone with an open mind can do it because it is so simple”.
