Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a 10-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.
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.
Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. You'll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family. Many people have discovered The Work's power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible.

"With warm and nicely chosen interventions with audience members, the authors demonstrate the essentials of accepting realities in others we can't change. It's a hard-charging message, at times relentless, that will shake up any listeners whose lives are held up because of nagging blame or anger toward others." (AudioFile)
At first I was not class early understanding and almost stopped listening. so grateful I did not. powerful hard to not get something out of this program.
I make a living out of helping people plug into their sole power and reprogram brains into loving what it is. Katie's wonderful book can transform
A life of pain and blame, into a life of joyousness. It's not easy work, but it's worth the effort it takes!
Again, another author that should never read his/her own books. Made it more annoying. Poor advice, poor performance, and rehashing the same idea over and over again.
Many people love this author and her theories, but it's just not for me. I did like that you are basically a "fly on the wall" at several of her seminars and you are able to hear Byron Katie interact with actual seminar participants on various topics. Although I didn't usually agree with or "buy into" her advice or theories, I did like this format.
Excellent quality and service from Audible.
This is an amazing book and amazing work to do! I loved moments in it and at other times found myself wanting to throw my phone out the car window as I met resistance! That's how I know I need this work so much and that it holds a piece of peace for me! Thank you!
My daughter left today to move to another city in my state. This book and inquiry has helped me so much. I'm going to listen to more of her work. I thank her from the bottom of my heart.
Relieved to have the tools to change my inner world, to finally look and see what IS, and to finally be able to truly love my neighbor. Because I can finally love myself. ❤️
Inquiry has led me to the water of " Loving what Is", so much that I have committed myself to do "The Work" I start today listening to the whole book again and allow myself to experience what is .
It went beyond my expectation because I did not know what to expect. Which was very good.
Byron Katie is a loving reflection of what love is and I am grateful that she mirrors this love we all are.
Thank you Byron Katie of being the teacher.
