Welcome to The Work of Byron Katie®!

Do you experience stressful thoughts around your kids, partner, mother, father, job, money,

health, or life in general?


Does life seem sometimes so overwhelming that you feel there's too much to do and you'll never get everything done? Do you feel you're running on empty as a result?


Or perhaps you feel so depressed at times that doing the simplest of tasks seem to require the greatest of efforts.

The Work® offers a Simple Way Out.


It allows you to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause all of your pain, anger,

frustration, overwhelm and depression.


The Work provides the opportunity to tap into your own wisdom, your own answers. It's your

answers that will set you free, not mine, or anyone else's out there.


Do The Work and you may find your life infused with a new peace and clarity. You may find

yourself moving through life with a lighter step. You may also experience a deep openness to

greeting all of life as it unfolds in front of you, the apparent good and the apparent bad.

I invite you to experience the power of The Work for yourself.

"You are the teacher you've been waiting for."

I attended this teleclass as a not native English speaker and I learned that doing The Work in English is not only possible but helpful for me. Brid and Joy were patient and calm with me and let me find my words and sentences at my own pace. In the beginning I hoped that I would find the thoughts that are lying under my addiction at of class. And by giving us many helpful questions every week I found a lot of thoughts and I started to see these thoughts and my addiction with an understanding grace during this teleclass. Doing The Work with Bríd four out of the six weeks was a great gift for me. Being facilitated by an experienced CF and facilitating her was a wonderful experience, because Brid and Joy did the homework with us during the teleclass. The openness of them both made it easy for me to open up as well.

I was really grateful for Brid and Joy's loving guidance during the Compulsive Mind teleclass this past April-May 2014.  I found I learned a lot from both of them on how to fill out my worksheets properly, to gain the most advantage in doing My Work.   I will be eternally grateful to both of them in sharing their knowledge with me.

An extraordinary journey. Is an amazing travel where you can see your body and illnesses with such clarity and understanding. You will face it with love and kindness. Like Katie said, it is more painful to not question thought than your actual pain.

The Compulsive Mind teleclass helped me identify the root causes of my addiction to food… my thoughts.  Brid and Joy’s teaching style is gentle and their guidance firm.  They do The Work right along with the rest of the class and I love that.  I've been able to apply many of the techniques to my daily life which has resulted in being much kinder to myself.  When I least expect it, an exercise we practiced during class or in homework pops up into my awareness and brings me relief from my compulsions.  It has been beneficial and I am glad I took this class. Blessings.

Cindy, USA (The Compulsive Mind Teleclass I)

The curriculum had a very good variety of exercises. Brilliant tools were given to use The Work in handling “stressful situations” in my life. The trainers were very easy, non-judgmental, non-pushy, confident, calm, supportive. I am not so afraid of my addictions. I feel ok with my addictions and less hopeless. I attack myself less. Also, I deepened into The Work. I got more confidence as a facilitator, more freedom to participate and share on the course. I realise after this course, that what I am hungry for is not a substance or experience, but a sense of connection, peace and love, that I can never get from a substance. At the root of it all I am addicted to improving on what is, my mind says: if I had something else/more I’d be happier. Thanks for a very insightful course.
