THE WORK OF BYRON KATIE
The Work has been proven as an effective process to improve different areas in our life especially in intimate relationship.
As humans, we are naturally loving, our intimate relationships are the source of our joy and our frustration. They provide us with support, friendship and love, and yet it is also the cause of stress as it tests our patience, trust and good will.
But why so many people suffer from intimate relationship? In our intimate relationships, the fear, guilt and control rooted in our beliefs that cause pain and suffering are easily activated. And we easily stick to what we think our partner should be and our relationship should look like instead of appreciating for who our partner truly is and what we have in relationship.
Our mind is a powerful force; it is like it has a life of its own. It creates thoughts and it makes us believe that those thoughts are the reality. When we are unaware of our thoughts, one thought will lead to another and another. It has its own conversation and even dialogue with each other. When we are consumed by our thoughts and believe they are real, we are not able to be with our partner as they are, rather we see them from our lenses. We project what we believe. This is the source of our suffering.
Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach us how to end our own suffering. As she guides us through the powerful process of inquiry she calls The Work, we may find that our stressful beliefs—about life, other people, or ourselves radically shift and our lives are changed forever. Based on Byron Katie's direct experience of how suffering is created and ended, The Work is an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind.
During this program, we will dig deeper in to the blind spots that cause anger, self-pity and guilt and convert these emotional challenges in to opportunities to grow in your relationships and yourselves. We will work to bring about balance, peace and joy to your lives and to rejoice in all that we have, knowing once we do the world opens up to us. What we believe is all we can project out, as long as we believe it. After we question our beliefs, we can only project out what we know to be true, and thus our whole world changes. Through The Work process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and deal with it there at its root. It gives you the tool to open your minds and set yourselves free to enjoy loving relationship as it is.
