Byron Katie Presents The Work for Parents, Family Members, Friends, and Caregivers of Children with Special Needs

The Work of Byron Katie is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the anger, fear, depression, addiction, and violence in the world.”

Byron Katie - The Work

I find The Work not just profoundly inspiring but also straightforward and incredibly effective. An inevitable part of a child having special needs is that the parents, family members, friends, and caregivers are challenged to find ways to help the child. And often times, they experience fear, confusion, helplessness, and even guilt in this process.

The Work is a remarkably effective way to shift beliefs and organize our relationships to our experience in ways that lift suffering and bring peace and greater joy in practically all circumstances.

Byron Katie recently came to the ABM Center to present an afternoon session specifically for parents and caregivers of children with special needs. We videotaped this event and it is now available.

This incredible two-hour session with Byron Katie is a small sample ofThe Work.

For just $4.99, you can get access to the video of this event: Streaming Video of Byron Katie and Anat Baniel on the Special Needs Child.

All proceeds from this video go to the ABM Foundation and The Work Foundation, Inc.

We invite you to check out our ABM Foundation website, mission, and the breakthrough outcomes that children with special needs have been getting with the Anat Baniel Method.

Byron Katie at Anat Baniel Center – A Joint Benefit

We are excited to announce that Byron Katie is coming to the Anat Baniel Method Center in San Rafael, CA, on August 29, 2014. This event is recommended for parents, caregivers, professionals, family members of children with challenges, and anyone interested. Proceeds will go to The Work Foundation and the Anat Baniel Method Foundation.

In working with children with special needs, I observed a missing link—attention to the parent’s experience. No one is prepared to have a child with challenges. Parents are flooded with fear, guilt, confusion, anger, loss, and often hopelessness. These feelings are to be expected and can lead to profound suffering. In Byron Katie, I found an exceptional teacher that helps people transform suffering into well-being.

In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple yet powerful process of inquiry is called The Work.

Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than 25 years and has brought freedom to people all over the world.

Byron Katie’s six books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True? and A Thousand Names for Joy. For more information, visit

Loving What Is—The Work can free parents, caregivers, family members, and professionals to love and help their child in even more powerful ways. Everyone is welcome.
