Byron Katie is an American speaker and author who's sole purpose lies in teaching people how to end their own suffering. Founder of a self-inquiry method known as "The Work," Byron Katie guides people through the powerful process of radically shifting their lives away from stressful beliefs. In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Katie woke up to a state of constant joy that never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she did not. This revelation inspired her to create "The Work," which is an astonishingly simple process that requires nothing more than an open mind. Through "The Work", people learn to trace unhappiness to its source in order to set ourselves free.
