Living and Working without Stress.


An Introduction to The Work of Byron Katie

Please return for dates and offerings of this workshop in 2018 or sign up for my newsletter

The Work of Byron Katie ( is a simple, yet profound way of identifying and questioning our stressful thoughts. 

When we believe our stressful thoughts, we suffer.  

When we question them, we don’t suffer.  

This is true for every human being.

We all have wonderful moments of joy, happiness, connection and peace.  And it's these moments which inspire us to seek a greater connection to experience happiness, joy and peace from where ever an in whatever type of situation we find ourselves.

Welcome to The Work, or self inquiry.

Byron Katie's insight into the mind is consistent with leading-edge research in cognitive neuroscience, and The Work has been compared to the Socratic dialogue, Buddhist teachings, and twelve-step programs. But Katie developed her method without any knowledge of religion or psychology. The Work is based purely on one woman’s direct experience of how suffering is created and ended. It is astonishingly simple, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen and paper and a willingness to open the mind.

I, Pete, found The Work over 10 years ago.  Having attended the 9-day “School for The Work” with Byron Katie, I’m well practiced in this personal inquiry and in facilitating others through leading individual, group and workshop sessions.  I am currently enrolled in the official certification process for The Work with Institute for The Work.

Having applied The Work to finances, health, family & personal relationships, pain and depression and much more, I’m open to bringing any stressful thought and any suffering to inquiry.

Ultimately, it is in the wisdom and truth you find within yourself that will set you free.

For a few hours, sit in the powerful inquiry that is The Work of Byron Katie.   We will learn the mechanics of this tool and by the end of the workshop, each participant will be able to effectively apply it to any stressful situation.   Through a combination of group and personal time, explore and experience The Work via: simple practice and supportive dynamic group experiences.
