I’ve been facilitating The Work of Byron Katie for over 15 years. I’m a “certified” facilitator – which makes me laugh as in the UK when someone is “certified” it means they have been registered as insane. Yet, The Work has brought me more sanity, more clarity and more realisations than anything I’ve ever done in my life.
And The Work of Byron Katie is what has kept me incredibly sane as a parent.
Being able to see and track my thoughts. To realise that my children are not the cause of my stress, my thinking about my children is the cause of my stress has enabled me to be free from the usual habits and patterns of action and reaction between parent and child.
And I’m not a perfect parent, not by any stretch of the imagination, but I am a happier one when I am doing The Work than when I’m not.
