Critic Reviews

"Byron Katie is one of the most intriguing and endearing spiritual teachers I have encountered. The Work is a unique process of self-inquiry. It creates an opening for a person to discover for oneself the reality of any belief or issue." (John W. Parker, author of Dialogues with Emerging Spiritual Teachers)

Lifechanging Material

Byron Katie stands alone when it comes to self-help. For 30 years I have been reading what is available and many, many times the books explain the problem at great length but fall short in application. I was expecting the usual "Hmmm... another book, another way of saying the same stuff, maybe this one will have it" type of thinking when I originally approached this writer but, instead, I found myself lifted, inspired and injected with enthusiasm from her straight no nonsense approach.

It's ok to admit we have issues because we all do. All the books tell us what we shouldn't be thinking, suggesting that we stop the wrong habits of thought, but where do we send those thoughts, how can we just replace them with a new sentences that don't belong to us and yet are somehow expected to be the new success formulars for our circumstance. Do you know what,.....I have discovered that it is better to be found running towards something than running away from something. You see, if you were running for a bus/train and tripped, you would just get up, dust yourself off and keep going. Your mind would be on the destination because YOU WANT IT, you're running towards it.
But, if you were trying to run away from something, say bad thinking or another habit, and you slip up, you're more likely to beat up on yourself for slipping. We'd all look back then and see things like how little the distance we have made and feeling guilty and shameful & want to give up or whatever. There really is a big difference here.

Katie offers something exciting and substantial for us to run towards, something if taken seriously, can end the war within, which in turn, can only help end the war without, at least in our own circle and that's better than it was. Within her writings is a profound permission to re-invent yourself which can only fill your heart with a new adoration, love and gratitude to be here, alive, and able to pay it forward.
I sincerely recommend any of her writings..Christine Villa:)

download from her website

audible is WAY too expensive. You can download this from her website for 4.99. Audible is a rip off

live recording

I rrally wanted to like this but BKM's over-use of the term "sweetheart, sweetie, precious" when addressing the workshop participants came off as patronizing, condescending, and frankly lazy on the part of someone who couldn't be bothered to ask their names. There are also some uneven sound issues on this recording that make the listening experience uneven.

equisite

I have only seen the you tube videos of byron Katie prior to this book. the only difference is not having the video. I love her work and always feel uplifted and reminded of what is my truth.

Tried and True

I've listened to Byron Katie's work before and have found great wisdom and clarity in dismantling the ego through The Work and inquiry. This talk is a familiar format however with endless dimensions. Great to revisit again and again.

Consciousness made simple

l loved this experience of Byron Katie's The Work in action. I was enthused by her strong softness and the way she presents the Four Questions that dismantle the illusions we buy into.

This presentation was consciousness made simple.
