Byron Katie: Master Class (2011)

Available worldwide

Byron Katie has one job: to teach people how to stop suffering. She created The Work, a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches us to identify and question the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. We believe our thoughts, rather than directly experiencing the world, and so become the source of our own sadness and fears – when we could be the source of our joy. Before you view this program, please download the Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet (go to and practice for yourself The Work’s four simple questions and three “turnarounds” that can free us from our stressful thoughts. When our thoughts lose their power over us, we learn to love “what is.” Byron Katie tell us that every time we do The Work we become kinder human beings, more loving and caring, the humans we have always wanted to be – and there’s no victim in that.

As I have watched the show I was feeling like doing the work myself. It is so clear and I could relate to every person who was speaking during this show. I am the cause of all my(!) suffering in my(!) life. What an amazing and releasing thought. I am responsible for me, and me only. My thoughts are the cause of all my suffering or my joy. I am free to be what I want and what i am.

Very powerful information! Her interactions with the group really make clear how the process works. The freedom and lightness that result from doing "the work" are evident as she works with participants.
