Byron Katie developed the powerful method of inquiry known as The Work, which helps people see their problems from an entirely different perspective, based on her direct experience of how suffering is created and ended. Since 1986, she has introduced The Work to hundreds of thousands of people in over 30 countries around the world. She has brought The Work into corporations, universities, schools, churches, prisons, and hospitals. Her book, Loving What Is, written with her husband Stephen Mitchell, has been translated into 16 languages and has been on bestseller lists at bookstores across the United States.

Author's Bio: 

Byron Katie became severely depressed while in her thirties and spent almost ten years in deep depression—rarely leaving her bed for the last two. Then one morning, in a sudden flash of insight, she realized that her problem was not the world around her but her beliefs about the world. “What I understood,” she says, “was that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but when I questioned my thoughts, I didn’t suffer.” Thus, The Work was born.

Since 1998, Katie has directed The School for The Work, a nine-day curriculum of exercises offered several times a year in America and Europe. She also hosts an annual New Year’s Mental Cleanse—a five-day program of continuous inquiry that takes place in Southern California—and weekend intensives in major cities around the world.
