I live near Denver, Colorado. I am available to meet in person, by phone, or skype.
Joy, I thank you all the time for teaching me The Work. All the time. The time and gentleness you shared with me last year has made such a difference in my life. I know I have a ways to go in learning The Work, but I'm on the path! Yey! And I am learning to be just me with my kids, modelling the same, living with all the feelings every day, and really loving what already is, in a quiet contented way. When I see myself rushing off to chase some thought or idea that pops in, it doesn't take a life time to notice it and investigate! And that is such a gift!!! I don't know but I think I would be living a very different life without the effort YOU helped me to put into loving what was in those moments last year.
I have called the work help line and you have assisted me. I was going through a very rough patch and with your help I finally gave in my resignation letter and quit my job and I am being kinder to myself. I still have some work to do and I am getting better at it.
I just wanted to share my experience of doing the work with you. When I called the helpline the way you listened to me and held that space for me I thought to myself who is this beautiful woman? I felt like I was being held and the way you said shhhhh..to me when I was crying was quite a beautiful experience. I never received that from my mother and now when I cry I say that to me..shhhhh and it feels comforting. When I called I could tell how much you love doing the work and how you have done YOUR work which allows me to do mine. And to tell you the truth I called twice the helpline or maybe more hoping you would be at the other end.
I read your short bio on the certified facilitators section and I understood. We have so much in common. I felt touched reading it too.
Thank you for holding that space for me and for being an inspiration for me. Talking to you inspired to me to be a better person for myself and for those around me as well and to hold that space for others as you did for me.
You have touched my heart and are a true inspiration for me :)
I think your name says it all "Joy"
Love and blessings to you!

What is The Work of Byron Katie?
"The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question the stressful thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. It consists of four questions that you apply to a stressful thought. It's a way to understand what's hurting you, a way to end all your stress and suffering. It works for everyone who is open to it, and it has a profound effect on your whole life. It will affect not only your own life, but your partner's life and the lives of your children and your children's children."
Any and every area of your life is appropriate for The Work.
Love, Sex, Relationships
Money and Work
Children and Parents
Health, Sickness and Death
What should I expect in a session?
1. We will identify a specific situation in your life that is causing you stress. This can be a past, ongoing or future event you are anticipating.
2. We will identify the specific stressful thoughts you are believing about this situation by filling in a Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet.
3. I will facilitate you by asking you the four questions in relation to one of your stressful beliefs on the Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet.
This is the basic approach and can vary depending on the client's background, experience and desire.
