Most people go through life without experiencing true joy and personal freedom, regardless of the success, status or other types of external security they may have.
Byron Katie knows this reality all too well. In the midst of a “normal and successful” life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a ten-year period sank further into rage and despair.
Then, one morning in 1986, out of the blue, she had a sudden, profound insight into how the mind works. As a result, a bedridden, suicidal woman became filled with love for everything life brings. Katie developed a simple yet powerful method of inquiry, called The Work, that helped make this transformation practical.
In this program, you will learn how to use The Work for yourself. You’ll discover that, contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once you have investigated it, the thought lets go of you. The Work’s four powerful questions and turnaround (which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe) have transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world.
In Your Inner Awakening Byron Katie will teach you this revolutionary process so that you can use it to question and undo any stressful thought that keeps you from experiencing mental clarity. Eventually you may find, as so many others have, that peace and joy flow into every area of your life.
As Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now, says, “Byron Katie’s Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusions and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being.”
“The Work of Byron Katie is the most powerful tool I have found to access my ability to live a happy life, no matter what happens. Using the four questions and turnaround I can investigate any thought that causes me stress and notice how I live my life when I believe this thought. For me, this frees me to see things from totally new perspectives and I am able to act in line with my own integrity and be an honest human being.
What I have noticed, in particular, is that I am more relaxed, more loving, more accepting of people and living a pretty enjoyable, stress-free life. I no longer fear things that used to worry me so much about my relationships with my children, my spouse or about other things like my health, the state of the world, etc. This doesn’t mean that I don’t care deeply about others; it just means that I can act from a place of clarity and this is so much more effective.
People seem to like being with me and are always commenting on how easy it is to be with me. I just can’t seem to find a problem any longer.
Love it!! I highly recommend Katie’s Inner Awakening – if it is happiness you are looking for.”
