QuoteSparkyThe jury should have this wrapped up within a couple days if not hours. Bye bye, DeathRay. Maybe your cell-mate can play "spiritual warrior" with you after lights-out. LOVE IT. Visualize cell-mate playing spiritual warrior "FULL ON"!

I am curious if anyone knows if this law protects Byron Katie and others like her from practicing without a license?

Quoteasonmy mother(she is approaching 60, I am in my late twenties) is planning on flying to a BK 9day school in a few days and i am uncertain of what to do. She is into BK since almost 1.5 years now doing worksheets and so on every now and then. After seeing the book more than a year ago I did not think it was a big deal. Just some new age stuff with a way to simplified view. And I thought s

I just found out that someone I know is heavily involved with him. I confided in her about my involvement with and recovery from the Byron Katie cult* and she seemed sympathetic, but never said a word about having her own "guru"! I'm so shocked and yet I can't really find much info about him on the web, only the New York Magazine article from 1993. Has he gone undergroun

I feel very confident in stating that NO ONE is making a living solely from facilitating the work of BK. True, there are some people trained as coaches, counselors, or psychotherapists who use the work in their practices, but they do not count since they already had an established clientele. Janaki is probably the biggest success story. She basically took her coaching business and, over the years

What's really screwed up about this is that while BK claims she is not a therapist, she includes professional sounding language in her "Code of Ethics." A friend sent me the latest version of it: ©2010 Byron Katie, Inc. All rights reserved. Rev. 1-10 www.thework.com The Work® of Byron Katie Institute for The Work Code of Ethics Professional Conduct Agreement 1. I agree to con

Even if the cockroach really did crawl over Byron Katie's foot, compare this "awakening" side by side with the stories of Suzanne Segal and Jill Bolte Taylor . There was a MEDICAL explanation for their "spiritual awakening" experiences: Suzanne Segal died of a brain tumor and Jill Bolte Taylor survived a massive stroke. Did Byron Katie have a legitimate spiritual awa

QuoteThe AnticultThat Byron Katie Inc Certified Facilitators page is something else. There appear to be 100-115 "certified" facilitators so far. As shown in this thread, to become a "certified" facilitator costs a bundle (how much in total?). Thanks for asking, Anticult. This was a very good exercise for me, putting this together! Cost of becoming a Certified Facilitato

QuoteChrista To expand on a concept The Anticult presented months ago, like a worm on a fishing line, the "Work" is bait. Its true purpose is not love, kindness, or personal growth. It exists to lure people into turning their minds and their money over to Katie and Stephen Mitchell. Like any bait, it doesn't always work, and most fish get away. That most fish escape does not

There is a parable that Katie tells, usually to the victims of domestic abuse: You're walking along and you see a fenced yard with a sign on the gate that says: "This dog bites". But you go in the yard anyway to pet the dog and the dog bites you. The dog is your husband and YOU bit you the moment you walked in that yard. For me, Katie is the dog in this story. However, I ne

Actually the Korn song that is played at the schools is called "Daddy" Katie introduces it as written by "her friend John" who "doesn't do The Work". Daddy lyrics
