What is The Work of Byron Katie?

A simple way to question the thoughts that create your stress, a method for you to find your smile again, if life or others disappoint you.

Byron Katie
“I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.” BYRON KATIE

“It is not what happens to us that causes stress, it is our thoughts about what happens.”


The Work of Byron Katie, also known as Inquiry-Based Stress Reduction (IBSR), is for those who seek peace, for those who know the answers lie within them and no longer want to seek outside themselves for that which is found within.

simple way for you to relate to yourself with loving kindness, ending the inner turmoil, which is so often the cause of stress. 

Learning to Do “The Work”

Doing What Works provides you with a facilitator – it is powerful to have a witness to what you have been thinking and believing. The simple structure of The Work’s four basic self-inquiry questions and it’s reversal technique, “the turnaround”, entrusts the process to the client, and with an experienced facilitator there is no imposing of the facilitator’s values or opinions.

Tammy first experienced The Work of Byron Katie in 2004, thanks to a workshop run by Rosie Stave called “Loving What Is”, which is also the name of Byron Katie’s book. At that time, Tammy attended the workshop to be more at peace with life’s circumstances:

“My circumstances did not change, however the way I was in those circumstances did. After I do The Work, on a particular situation or cause of stress, I experience a new me: more peaceful, more able, more willing.”
