The Work on Relationships, The Work on Parents, and The Work on Money and Career.
In Loving What Is, best-selling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the mind. Now, I Need Your Love, Is That True? examines a universal, age-old source of anxiety: our relationships with others. In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love and approval. In doing this, you discover how to find genuine love and connection.
This program features Katie doing The Work at public events with people on the subject of our bodies. The first two pieces feature a woman on the size of her breasts, and a man on his tendency to lose his erection. In the third piece, a woman questions her belief that her overweight body is damaged and unattractive.
"Practical views to stop harsh thoughts"
The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, "It's not the problem that causes our suffering; it's our thinking about the problem." Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point we can truly love what is, just as it is.
"Go for the abridged version"
Katie does "The Work" with audience members on a wide variety of relationship issues, including jealousy, blame, sex, communication, judgment, parenting, abuse, closure, and much more.
The potential to attract money and create abundant wealth doesn't reside in your job, your circumstances, or even the economy. It resides within you. Your mind is equipped with the natural ability to attract as much money as you want and need - at anytime, anyplace, in any financial climate, without struggle. You just have to know how to trigger it.

"Practical Advice to Change Your Life"
Meet Stearlene, an African-American woman who sits bravely before a predominately white audience and states that she sees white people as the enemy.

"So I really have a mental illness when I think that my mom's mentally ill," Jim muses. Katie doesn't miss a beat. "I noticed that," she says. Jim's mother has manipulated him for so long that he doesn't think he can stand it anymore. Or has she?
Fall in love with Harry, a Native American who returns to innocence through inquiry. Harry comes to The Work uninitiated and depressed, and interacts with Katie from the audience on death, loneliness, and spiritual frustration.

"So many of us hold a deep belief that we were born unworthy," reflects Adyashanti, "inadequate, unlovable, and alone." But what if, in truth, we weren't put here to pay penance, change our karma, or "fix" ourselves? What if we chose to be here because we so loved the world that we poured ourselves into it - to make it whole again, to restore "the hidden divinity amid the disaster"? With Healing the Core Wound of Unworthiness, we're invited to entertain that possibility.
"Loved it! Topic not often dealt with directly."
Anger, contempt, fear, sadness - rich feelings sound through this pair of dialogues as Katie, with her gentle fearlessness, facilitates men doing The Work on their fathers. Both stories echo with painful themes of abandonment and alienation.
Relationships with partners and parents are an excellent source of freedom when taken to inquiry. The women in this audio program explore common core beliefs, such as "partners should be open and vulnerable" and "mothers should acknowledge and love their children." Includes live French translation.

Brilliant work (always!) Byron Katie is presenting. Only bit difficult to stay focused, because of the German translation the whole time. Side-effect: could learn some German.
