About The Event

Byron Katie gives you the how of enlightenment. – Eckhart Tolle

Join us in a dialogue with CCARE’s founder and director, Dr. James Doty, who will ask Katie about her life’s amazing work and how compassion has played a role. This evening will begin with a short conversation, followed by The Work with Katie, and end with a book signing, which will be available for purchase by the Stanford Bookstore at the event.

Step into an evening of radical self-inquiry with Byron Katie, as she launches her new book, A Mind at Home with Itself. The book weaves the brilliant clarity of the Diamond Sutra with the power of The Work, her method of self-inquiry. Katie will engage participants, using The Work, which is so sharp that it can cut through the most obstinate stressful thought and lead you to the freedom that is your birthright.

About Byron Katie

In 1986, Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. In that moment beyond time, 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.

Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than 30 years. Her webcasts, weekend workshops, 5-day intensives, 9-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House have brought the beginning of the end of suffering to people all over the world.

When the mind understands its true nature, it becomes an unceasing flow of delight. – Byron Katie, from A Mind at Home with Itself
