Out of nowhere, like a breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice, comes Byron Katie and “The Work.” In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a ten-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now in Loving What Is you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is.

Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. You’ll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family. Many people have discovered The Work’s power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible.

If you continue to do The Work, you may discover, as many people have, that the questioning flows into every aspect of your life, effortlessly undoing the stressful thoughts that keep you from experiencing peace. Loving What Is offers everything you need to learn and live this remarkable process, and to find happines...

Byron Katie experienced what she calls “waking up to reality” in 1986, and since then she has introduced The Work to hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. In addition to her public events, she has introduced The Work into business settings, universities, schools, churches, prisons, and hospitals.

Stephen Mitchell’s many books include the best-selling Tao Te Ching, Bhagavad Gita, The Gospel According to Jesus, Meetings with the Archangel, and The Frog Prince.

  • facing reality

    Simple process easily learned to challenge one's routine self defeating thought process. To argue with reality is to lose 100% of the time, so face what is. I first watched a short online video of her helping people talk through problems which kick started my ability to use the thought analysis process. I was able to reap huge benefits within a couple hours, i.e. change habit to argue "my side" or blame a situation or person for my unhappiness into an ability to reverse my mental projections and find a deeper truth which results in a calming effect that is quite shocking. For the brave and those who want to learn to love deeply, it works. I expected to find the FLAW in her theory and instead found her work changing my life hourly. It is well written, easy to follow, the stories are funny, the way is light. Emergency help for personal relationships, long time help for dealing with Life. Yes, it is that simple.

  • Great book to work with yourself

    Byron Katie has developed a method of inquiry which you can use to find out what is true for you. This is an interesting read and a good referral book.

  • What a dissapointment!

    Out of all the 'self help' books that I have read, this one was by far the WORST book I have ever read (I did not even finished it all). I just thought that it was repetitive in its concepts and very poorly written; furthermore, i found the examples far-fetched and very unrealistic. HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!

  • Loving What Is

    Reality...stresses...life's challenges; all are dealt with in a 4-step process which guides one to acknowledge reality and leave behind the detrimental "thoughts or stories" one has been living over and over again . It is a very powerful technique clearly presented.

  • Loving What Is, by Byron Katie

    This is a great book to get, along with Ruiz' FOUR AGREEMENTS. Byron Katie turned her life around in one of those classic 'breakdown-as-breakthrough' experiences that some call shamanic healing crises. Perhaps she even became enlightened. She created four questions, and several others actually as well, for readers to evaluate their crises and issues, to defuse upset and eliminate the thinking errors that can spiral into anger, depression, fear, and inability to get along with others. This book can change your life.
