About

Inquiry-Based Stress Reduction

Doing What Works was created to share an Inquiry-Based Stress Reduction process, known as The Work of Byron Katie. Tammy Reid, founder of Doing What Works, 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. I found I didn’t need to do anything for that to happen, no “to do lists”, rather I do The Work and I experience a new me: more peaceful, more able, more willing. This is why I continue to do The Work.”

“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 an Inquiry-Based Stress Reduction (IBSR) process.

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

When applied to different emotional, mental or physical difficulties, The Work of Byron Katie, which is a process of self-inquiry, can radically alter your perspective. The result is that you can be comfortable in your own skin, at peace with reality and able to live in harmony with the way things are.

The Work of Byron Katie is for those who want peace, for those who are tired of suffering, for those who know the answers lie within them and no longer want to seek outside themselves for that which is found within.

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.

“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.”
