Loving What Is by Byron Katie

Learning to see everything with LOVE. Learning to shift out of everything going on around you, to turning inward and learning to heal what is going on WITHIN you. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is.

Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. 

** recommend listening to the audiobook by the Author AND having the physical book to work through!
