This workshop introduces you to the process which Byron Katie simply calls “The Work.” The Work is a simple and powerful technique of asking questions that help you analyse your thoughts and identify what is causing you stress. The process basically consists of four questions, your answers to them and turning around the thought you originally departed from. This workshop gives you the opportunity to explore and practice this technique. Byron Katie: "I discovered that I suffered when I believed what I thought, and that I didn’t suffer when I didn’t believe it, and that this truth applies to every single human being. Freedom is that simple.”
