The Work is Inspiring: SIERRA MADRE, 1st Tuesdays, 7 pm,w/ Jeff,

  • May 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM

The Work of Byron Katie® is not a training or belief system; it's more akin to an active,  cognitive, sensing meditation--on just 4 Questions & the Turnarounds. Once you've learned The Work you've got it for life. Truly-it's there when you want it. It's an amazingly simple effective process. To discover this-You could write your stressful thoughts & Inquire Within-with these 4 questions (abbreviated here): Is it True? Can you absolutely know that it's true? How do you react when you believe that thought? Who would you be without it? Then we explore Turnarounds to the stressful thought.

It's my experience that The Work engages people a wide variety of issues, basically by writing down stressful thoughts and questioning them in a steady, remarkably simple way. The 4 questions help a person get clarity about core beliefs or limiting thoughts that present themselves. I find it inspiring how readily Four Questions can move the inner habits of thought that may have proceeded for years--then the 4 questions of The Work appear, in an almost tangible shift of perspective; we could say, a visceral awareness of well-being occurs.  This is a great way to experience palpably--not just know as a concept--that it's not circumstances, it's our thoughts about them, that stress us.  You may come and go as you please.
Please read on for a special approach I shall take to move that along. As to this meeting.. NOTE: ALL WELCOME. THIS INTRODUCTION/GROUP HAPPENS AS LONG AS THERE ARE 3 OR MORE RSVPS. [Other upcoming events of The Work--Sierra Madre, 1st Saturday & 1st Tuesday; West LA, 2nd Tuesday; Pasadena/SGV, 3rd Tuesday; Venice/MDR, 2nd Saturday; ] Come see the new meeting room arrangement in Sierra Madre, even more conducive to inquiry.
Curious about The Work of Byron Katie®?

"Suppose you could find a simple way to embrace your life with joy, stop arguing with reality, and achieve serenity in the midst of chaos?", asks author Erica Jong, referring to The Work. Eckhart Tolle calls The Work "a great blessing for our planet". Come experience a simple process that noted author Wayne W. Dyer says "has been enormously helpful to me personally."
Linda said, “Exceptional!!! Jeff does an incredible job meeting the needs of the participants at many levels. He continually meets individual and group needs simultaneously. He has the ability to balance not pushing participants beyond where they want to go and wheedling out substantial belief systems that are untrue and still need to be explored.” ."
WELCOME--Here's a great 'WORK'shop to clear limiting beliefs-for anyone drawn to Self-Improvement, Personal Inquiry, Spirituality & Transformation--An Introduction to 'The Work of Byron Katie®'. Jeff Jones presents/facilitates: TUESDAY, May 7th, 2013, 7:00-10:00 pm--110 E. Highland Ave., Sierra Madre, CA 91024. It's north/west, up the hill, from the Baldwin Exit #31, 210 fwy.(626) 355-2923. All are welcome; $8 donation requested-call beforehand if you wish to discuss or adjust this.
PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING: one meetup attendee posted this:"Very transformative and powerful. My favorite of all the meetup groups. If you are willing to put forth the effort, it is worth it." "You get individual attention in a small quiet safe environment. A chance to explore your inner depth," added another. The Work is Four Questions & The Turnarounds, an amazingly simple effective process.
Someone posted this: "Jeff gives lots of personal attention and great value…I can see also how this would fit in well with other techniques I use. Thanks." Thanks; I appreciate that. Someone else told me, "After our Work together Jeff, I felt better the next morning than I had in years." IT'S THE POWER OF THE WORK, A 'benefit from this profound approach to simple self-inquiry'.

This 'Work'-shop introduces the profound, simple process. Active facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie® ( for over 12 years, Jeff will show how to utilize these questions to help you effectively move through troubling thoughts. "It's like a mystery, that by answering these questions one can move through so many limiting beliefs and difficult thoughts," he says. "You’re welcome to come experience and apply it for yourself."


"Remarkable, palpable shifts can be seen in people just from their answering the 4 Questions from their own truth, being present to their current experience," says Jeff. He is a graduate of five Schools For The Work with Byron Katie.
Someone that Jeff facilitated said,
"I went in knowing really nothing about the process and came out of it a completely different (and better!) person! This was TRULY a life-changing experience!I left the meeting feeling truly happy for the first time in YEARS, literally. I have tried many many things over the years to help with my depression and life in general and absolutely nothing has worked. This has worked! The people there were completely supportive. I felt extremely comfortable. I REALLY can't say enough about it! If you NEED change in your life and you are TRULY ready to be HONEST about it - this is the way to go."

Eckhart Tolle says, "Byron Katie's Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being." David Chadwick describes The Work as "amazingly effective, a simple, straightforward antidote to the suffering we unnecessarily create for ourselves." He suggests it "provides a surprisingly effective and simple way to cut through the tangle of delusions we wrap ourselves in." Feel free to venture in..ward, or just listen in.
