On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

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. He then moves through a powerful written inquiry on his ex-wife, which explores alcoholism, racism, child custody, parenting, and relationships.

"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?

Join Katie as she helps us break down the thoughts that keep us from more deeply appreciating the gifts that our mothers - without exception - have given us.

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. 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.

Byron Katie can smash the self lies we tell ourselves faster than years of therapy. This creates freedom and room to live in the truth of reality. Inquiring into untruthful thoughts changes the experience of now, love it!

  • Learning to Stay Present

We reinforce addictions by giving into them, but what is there to do when we get that "itchy" feeling? Learning to Stay Present shares insights for peacefully refraining from the "urge to scratch." In this recording from a live event with Pema Chodron, she discusses the ineffable quality known in the Buddhist tradition as shenpam a pre-emotional feeling that arises in us, brings discomfort, and often leads to unskillful, habitual reactions.

What if the full sense of our aliveness were only to be found amidst our most challenging times and difficult experiences? In pain and crisis, teaches Pema Chödrön, there lies a hidden doorway to freedom that appears to us only when we're sure that there is no way out. In these intimate audio learning sessions, Pema Chödrön helps us distinguish the triggers or external events that we blame for our suffering from the deeper habitual patterns that feed our anger, fear, or sadness.
