You need to read the entire thread, there is a lot of info in there.
First, The Work has never been shown in ANY studies to have any benefits for anyone. There is no proof it works at all.
Facilitators of BK are not trained or monitored in any way.
If you hurt someone by mistake, you can be sued directly. Byron Katie will not protect you, she will cut you loose, she already has, in her disclaimers.
If you do a Turnaround on someone who has suicidal impulses, that self-hate and guilt you are magnifying could trigger a suicide.
Most Byron Katie Facilitators do not realize they are risking losing their homes by being a Facilitator, as if they hurt someone by mistake, or if someone commits suicide or assault under their therapy counselling, they can be sued into oblivion. (Byron Katie didn't tell you that part, of course. But read her disclaimers).
The Work is just a front, for the deeper Byron Katie system.
Its designed as a type of "fish-hook" to lure people in deeper to the Byron Katie system, just like the Scientology Stress Test. They just used that fake test as a way to get their fingers into you.
You should be aware of that, as you are being lured in deeper by your own comments.
How much has it cost you to be a BK Facilitator so far, including travel costs and lost wages?
Please add that up for us here.
9 Day School is about $5,000.
Plus a weeks pay lost, hotel, airfare.
Then add up all the books, DVD's, and other trainings you have taken so far.
You must have done the Katie 100 Day program too.
How much in donations so far?
A person could spend $30,000-$100,000 easily, and even much more.
So lets do that first, add up honestly how much its cost you so far to be a Facilitator so far for Byron Katie.
I am a facilitator of TW and thinking about launching a website to offer my service to those who may want to experience TW. I have gotten as far as reading about page 9 of the 77 on this thread.
So far, what I can gleam as the main message from this thread are these two points:
1. People who have a need should seek help from a licensed therapist. BK isn't a licensed therapist.
2. TW can hurt people.
I am not interested in hurting others.
I think it is important to tell you that no one sent me here - I googled something and this thread came up and I found it. I am interested in the viewpoints here. I have no previous hypnotherapy experience, and have a master's degree in clinical psychology (not mail order).
From where I sit today, TW seems to have been helpful to my life.
Please let me know why I should or shouldn't offer facilitation in TW in your opinion?
