The Work is like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. —Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

In this annual, sold-out event, Byron Katie will begin the day with a workshop designed to take attendees on a journey of self-discovery through her meditative practice of inquiry called The Work. With her wonderful humor and clarity, Katie will guide all participants, onsite and online, to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause their particular day-to-day struggles. Onsite participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and to do The Work with Katie. Using The Work, people find again and again that their stressful beliefs—about the world, other people, or themselves—can no longer run their lives.

After lunch, Katie's husband, Stephen Mitchell, will read briefly from his bestselling Tao Te Ching and The Second Book of the Tao, and will follow the reading by a talk about the relation between the Dharma and The Work, followed by questions and answers. Katie will join him on stage for the last hour.
