The longing for Truth was born during my childhood when my innocent love for my parents was painfully interrupted by overhearing their judgments of each other. My suffering and longing for living from love again got me on my Spiritual Path. It wasn’t until many years later when I was introduced to The Work of Byron Katie that I realized that only by believing my thoughts I either love or suffer. Now I know I am love itself.
In 1999, the year before this realization, I was introduced to The Work of Byron Katie. At the time, I wasn't looking for another teaching. I had developed my own way of coming back to peace and it worked well, as long as I was sitting in meditation.
Katie (as we affectionately call her) amazed me with her loving, laser-sharp questions. I saw in her a part of me that I had not yet allowed myself to experience - the ability to ask for the truth. Through the 4 questions of The Work, I learned that, when I educate my mind, fear becomes the doorway to peace. My mind is now at home in my heart.
Since then, I’ve questioned my thoughts daily and have assisted hundreds of people in doing the same. I enjoyed partnering with Flourish Ojai this spring doing The Work with the “Immunity with the Community” project they offered. The Center’s mission aligns beautifully with my values of partnership, self-empowerment and personal freedom.
I truly enjoy listening to my friends and clients’ stories. When the story is painful, the questions shine the light of truth and bring us back to love.
Every time I do The Work with someone, I revisit what needs attention in my own life. Serving you is serving me. I love you. What if love is all there is?
