The bestselling author offers a new book on the nature of the mind and freedom from painful thoughts.

‘Very illuminating…on the cutting edge of current biological research’ Jon Kabat-Zinn

Question your thoughts and find freedom

In A Mind At Home With Itself, bestselling author and founder of The Work, Byron Katie explains that emotions such as sadness, anger and resentment come from believing our negative thoughts. But when we learn to question those thoughts, they lose their power. And when this happens, our minds are free to turn towards others and ourselves with a spirit of generosity.

Byron Katie gives hugely popular workshops every year all over the world, in places like churches, prisons, universities, schools and corporations. She speaks at organisations like Facebook and Stanford University and is also involved with a programme for cancer patients. Charismatic and compassionate, there’s good reason why The Times has called her events ‘riveting’, and Time magazine has named her ‘a spiritual innovator for the new millennium’.


Very illuminating...on the cutting edge of current biological research

Jon Kabat-Zinn

Byron Katie has rocked my world and shaken loose my mind more thoroughly than any other spiritual teacher I've ever encountered. I would recommend A MIND AT HOME WITH ITSELF to anyone like me - to anyone who has ever felt like her own mind was a very dangerous neighborhood.

Elizabeth Gilbert

A truly illuminating and lively hookup of revered ancient Zen Diamond Sutra teachings and a wild and clear-eyed modern sage. It will help you to question deeply, inspire your spirit, and awaken your understanding.


I think Byron Katie is just a real thing. I love her to death. She's pure and her intent is only to serve and she brings people back to reality so quickly. Teaches them not to believe their limiting thoughts and to question them and find the real truth.

Tony Robbins
