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

Byron Katie, Founder of The Work

"A spiritual innovator for the new millennium." —Time magazine

Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through the powerful process of inquiry she calls The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs—about life, other people, or themselves—radically shift and their lives are changed forever. Based on Byron Katie's direct experience of how suffering is created and ended, The Work is an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind.

Through this process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and deal with it there. Katie (as everyone calls her) not only shows us that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free.

What is The Work?

The Work is a way to identify and question the thoughts that cause all your suffering. It is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to understand what’s hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity. In its most basic form, The Work consists of four questions and the turnarounds.

The Lead with Love Aspen Retreat Celebrates “The Aspen Idea”


aspen-trees.jpg

“Aspen is a place where the human spirit can flourish”.

The legendary and visionary founder of modern-day Aspen, Walter Paepcke claimed, “Aspen is a place where the human spirit can flourish”. He knew what a special place this was when he and his wife Elizabeth came here in the 1940s and decided to create a cultural mecca in the middle of the mountains with skiing, music and high ideals contemplating what makes “a good society.” Since the early years, Aspen was a place where people could connect to their heads through a plethora of cultural and intellectual stimulation, but also as their hearts as a sense of community and connection to place has always been important here. Paepcke coined the phrase “The Aspen Idea” back in the 1940’s when he and his wife Elizabeth founded “The Aspen Institute”. Since that time, the Institute has drawn a steady stream of brilliant minds adding to this incredibly rich landscape where people live “The Aspen Idea” every day. This idea, according to historical lore, is that Aspen is a place where one can nourish and connect mind, body, and spirit.

In the fall, the iconic Aspen trees of Aspen turn from bright green to yellow and red creating a breathtaking blanket of gold that mesmerizes the senses. “The Aspen Retreat” will be held Sept 12-15 in the peak period of fall colors to showcase this magical time of year often called “secret season” in Aspen.
