In my experience The Work of Byron Katie is the clearest and most powerful process to access my own wisdom—and no one has more wisdom than anyone else. As I sit with the four questions and the turnarounds concerning one of my stressful beliefs, the answers that arise end the war in my mind and create a clarity that allows me to live in joy and peace and be free to serve others with all my heart.
My life experience includes being a Bible teacher and pastor, father of seven children (six of whom were adopted) and for years a single father, entrepreneur (organic farmer and restaurateur), state-certified domestic violence counselor, and workshop presenter in sexology and psychology for San Francisco AIDS Foundation Gay Life. As a prevention specialist for a county alcohol and drug services department over a number of years, I introduced The Work in many jails, juvenile correctional establishments, psychiatric facilities, schools, and rehabilitation centers.
The only modality I use in my life is The Work, and I have witnessed it having a dramatic impact on me, my children, people suffering from relationship issues, addictions, psychiatric diagnoses, internalized homophobia, incarceration and criminality, and religious/spiritual questions. I am native Norwegian, have a graduate degree in Russian, lived and worked in Brazil, and have facilitated many classes for The Work in Spanish. I would love to do The Work with you on any issue individually or in groups.
