Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a 10-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.



"With warm and nicely chosen interventions with audience members, the authors demonstrate the essentials of accepting realities in others we can't change. It's a hard-charging message, at times relentless, that will shake up any listeners whose lives are held up because of nagging blame or anger toward others." ( AudioFile)

The work im Original ist immer wieder gut!

Wer Byron Katie und Ihre Arbeit kennt, schätzt diese Buch und dieses Hörbuch ohnehin. Dennoch gibt es einen Unterschied zu den deutschen Übersetzungen.

Und das ist Byron Katie selbst. Es ist nur schwer zu übersetzen was sie in Ihren Gesprächen und Überprüfungen rüberbringt. Sie hat eine faszinierende Geduld, Spaß an ihrer Arbeit und eine große Liebe für die Menschen.
Das kommt im Original natürlich am Besten rüber. Ihre Aussprache ist ein wenig gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber das wird durch den Nutzen und den Spaß, den man durch die Originalgespräche hat, ausgeglichen. Gerade diese Gespräche schaffen es, dass man oft berührt wird. Manchmal hört man bei Ihren Gesprächspartnern fast den "Groschen fallen". Ich finde daher, dass das Original um Längen siegt!

Great psychology

As a clinical psychologist I was impressed by Byron Katies work and specifically by its recording style.
Hearing the practical cases is better than reading!Her '4QuestionsPLUSturnITaround-Approach' to deal with daily life problems is much easier than scientific paradigms like Freudian psychoanalysis or even standard Rogers therapy.
