A Benefit for the Spirit Rock Scholarship Fund and The Work Foundation Scholarship Fund

Byron Katie has one job — to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through her simple yet powerful process of inquiry, called The Work, they find again and again that their stressful beliefs about the world, other people, or themselves can no longer run their lives. Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now, says, “The Work is like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being.”

Join Katie in a workshop designed to take you on a journey of self-discovery. With her humor and lovingly incisive clarity, Katie will show you how to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause all the suffering and violence in the world. Anyone with an open mind can do The Work®. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and to do The Work with Katie®.

This program has sold out for several years running. Register early to ensure your space.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.

CARPOOLING is always requested, and due to the large number of people expected at this program, cars with less than 3 people will be asked to pay a $10 non-carpooling fee. Bring more if you can! Spirit Rock only charges this fee for events that will be very full as we have pledged to help keep traffic down on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. and we have limited onsite parking. You can find other people on our carpooling forum at our Online Bulletin Board For Ride Sharing. Folks who can OFFER a ride are usually needed.
