The Work of Byron Katie (Inquiry Based Stress Reduction) is a simple tool comprised of four questions and a turn-around. It is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the fear and suffering in the world. Experience the happiness of undoing those thoughts through “The Work”, and allow your mind to return to it’s true awakened, peaceful, creative nature.
The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that assists you in understanding what’s hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity. With this inquiry process you are able to get to the core of any issue fast and find peace.
The Questions for inquiring into any stressful thought are:
- Is it true?
- Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
- How do you react when you believe this thought?
- Who would you be without the thought or Who are you without the thought? then… Turn the thought around and find opposites…
