Byron Katie: Master Class with Interview (2011)

Available worldwide

After suffering through more than a decade of depression, Byron Katie woke up one morning, opened her eyes, and discovered that all of her problems came from believing her thoughts. She understood that when she believed her thoughts, she suffered, but when she was free from her thoughts she could experience the world directly and her suffering disappeared. In this intimate interview, Byron reveals the stories from her own life that led her to create The Work and the four simple questions and three “turnarounds” that can become a mantra to opening your heart and realizing your true nature of love. Lisa Garr, creator of radio’s The Aware Show, interviews Byron Katie for Gaiam Portraits of Inspiring Lives. Please take a moment to download the Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet and get ready to engage The Work offered in this extraordinarily life-changing program.

Byron gives us the tools to use to make life an exciting journey full of challenges rather than playing out the victim role which so many of us get stuck in before we come to realise how powerful we really are. If we could just silence the chattering monkies!

What she's really talking about is the conflict between ego and spirit. It's interesting she compared the mind to a "chattering monkey", Buddha said our mind is like a tree full of chattering monkeys. The first thing to do is to eliminate all the chatter- it can be a challanging thing to do! The spirit only wants to give. The ego only wants to take. They're both in all of us.

I have been doing The Work for a few years and this is a great overview for anyone interested. I also got a lot of new insights. Beautiful

The Work is a very valuable tool. This is a great way to get a better understanding through her telling of her story and walking through a session with her class. Thanks!!!
