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.
