Un-Learning & Awakening
Most of us are living without a clear view of reality; we're living through a veil of beliefs about ourselves, others & life. And because of the way the ego-mind works in trying to protect us, these beliefs are always stressful.
This is the cause of all confusion & suffering.
In other words, it is not who we or others are or how our lives are that can ever be the problem, it is only what we think about all of this that causes our pain. This is good news. It means we can do something about it.
The Work of Byron Katie is a form of self-inquiry where we use simple questions to take us beyond the mind. If you're like me, and you've tried to meditate without success, this distinct process easily supports the mind to still by engaging the intellect, allowing the vast, intuitive wisdom of your transcendent mind to step forward.
Everything you need or could ever want is found here.

The Buddha famously said that all life is suffering. It seems to be the one thing we all share and that we can't get around.
As a human culture, we have become adept at clinging from thing to thing (relationships, praise, food, alcohol, money ...) as a means of finally coming into security, love, peace, and a general sense of "everything is okay."
The only problem is, it doesn't work. We are still trapped in a world where there is right & wrong, good & bad, and we desperately try to get it right all the while living in a projected future based on an imagined past. All of it stressful.
I know this pattern as well as anyone, having lived it myself.
Eventually, the world I was living in (that I came to understand was a projection of my beliefs about the nature of life) felt like too much. I really didn't feel like I could handle it. Maybe you can relate.
My desire for peace in my life and freedom from my suffering became strong enough that by a stroke of grace I found The Work of Byron Katie (or truer, it found me).
Upon first experiencing The Work and the profound power of self-inquiry, I knew I'd finally found what could help me. At that point, my seeking came to an end and finding began. It was the beginning of truly understanding myself, and, seeing that indeed I could trust myself wholly. This changed everything.
While I still can experience difficult emotions or get confused about the reality of a given situation, I know now why this is happening and, more importantly, how to move through it to clear awareness.
Even more so, I know how to let these situations deepen my awareness and transform me. I understand that everything that arises in my life is here to teach me, to show me ... to lighten the path to what is true. I couldn't see it without inquiry.
Life is so much more manageable -- and magical -- with self-inquiry.
I can truly say this Work is life-changing and it would be my great joy to share it with you.
“An unquestioned mind is the world of suffering.”
― Byron Katie
WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
I came to your workshop expecting to learn some things I didn't already know but I did not expect the transformational experience that happened. It really helped me.
I feel different after; I left feeling so happy, free, and light.
I was able to see that I have been living with the belief that my mom doesn't love me for my whole life and have seen everything through that lens. I can see how my life experience is completely different not believing that ... seeing the reality. I also believed I should have fought harder to be a dancer but see now that's not true. I did fight hard and it didn't work.
Thank you ... thank you so much.

Kathryn brings a gentle and kind energy to The Work that allowed me feel comfortable, like I was connecting with a long-time friend. Her experience and knowledge in The Work is extensive.
Kathryn opened the space and trust for me to dive in to memories/illusions of the past, present and future. I have done The Work before and had past images arise but didn’t spend much time there. Kathryn was able to encourage me to bring my insights of today to the past situations which provided a new found curiosity and light that was nearly mind-blowing for me. I got insights from both myself and her that helped me.
Having someone, like Kathryn, to witness and support me and my work has been valuable. Hearing insights echoed back and being able to read insights that Kathryn had written from our time together was incredibly validating and valuable. Some I hadn’t remembered until seeing them written down.
Something about Kathryn just feels safe. I would recommend her to any family, friends, neighbours 😉 that are looking to do The Work. Can’t wait until she runs a retreat!!!!
It was a joy working with Kathryn doing "The Work."
Kathryn holds a wholehearted space of respectfulness and openness.
The most important aspect for me was the experiential deepening (meaning not just an intellectual exercise) that transpired as we moved along. What I experienced was an authentic coming alive within myself in places which had not been met. Shining break-throughs during the process, and even laughter, as new perspectives arose.
If you do not want to live stuck in a distressing thought or belief, Kathryn's presence and skills as a facilitator will support and help gently guide you into a clarity and peace of mind. Very much recommended.

"Watching the morning break, I realize again that darkness doesn't kill the light, it defines it.
I believe that now. For years, I didn't.
I believed that I was my failures, mistakes, misjudgments, shortcomings and wrongs.
But I'm not those things.
I am the light that shines from my faith, my courage, my willingness to be vulnerable .... I'm moving beyond shame. I'm basking in the light of my own recovery and the brilliance that comes from allowing myself to be seen as I am.
