The Work is a simple process, developed and taught by a Californian woman, Byron Katie, since her awakening in 1987.
It is a series of 4 questions that can be used to address any situation in your life that is frustrating, stressful or painful. It is a way to find peace with whatever is happening in your life.
The Work can be applied to any upsetting situation, regardless of intensity. You can use it for everyday annoyances with children, spouses, bosses, parents or co-workers. Or you can use The Work to deal with the big crises in your life such as divorce, death of a loved one, broken relationships, serious health issues or traumas from abuse or violence. The Work is helpful regardless of the nature of the situation that is causing stress.

"Peace comes by invitation, the invitation from yourself, and it that's your goal, welcome the inquiry. The great spiritual texts give you the what - what it means to be free. The Work is the how. It gives you a direct entrance into the awakened mind. some people spend years trying to figure out what's the matter with them. When you come to The Work, you don't have to figure it out. You already know what's the matter with you: you're believing your stressful thoughts. You don't even have to know which thought. You just pick the first one that occurs, and that is what's the matter with you. And when you question your thoughts, the thing that was the matter with you begins to show up as nothing,"
