A sweet goodbye and “sendoff” during our 8th teleclass.
To sweet friends I carry with me, whether we’re together
on our teleclass, doing exercises together between classes,
meeting at a “Katie event”…or who knows where.
From Kenya, Japan, Florida, Seattle, New York, Minnesota…
performers, doctors, artists, actor, teacher, sister facilitator.
Someone said, as we were about to end the last call, how amazing
it is that we, as we’re doing The Work, can just come together in
a blink of an eye and become a community of mutual support.
And we can look, almost immediately, into the darkest corners
of our lives–that can turnaround into the brightest.
And what a relief to “compress” time.
It’s so wonderful we don’t need years of gradually getting to know
each other, taking tentative steps to see if it’s safe, before we can
open up to the most important things…
…troubling, hateful, scary, shameful, …exciting, precious, exhilarating!
And somehow, The Work provides a framework to shine the light
ANYWHERE…at anything…on anyone…at any time…no matter
how horrible or impossible or disgusting the situation or the
people in your life seems to be.
It’s great that the worst thing that can EVER happen is a thought.
And one other thing I love is The Work (amidst oceans of things
I love) is it’s NOT about following a “guru” who has “the” answers.
I’ve heard Byron Katie say so many times, that it’s NOT about
“her,” or “her” answers, or about doing what “she” does,
but about finding the answers to YOUR OWN questions.
And heaven forbid, it’s not about following ME or my answers!!!!
That’s why I love hearing about group members continuing to
work together long after the “official teleclass” is over.
So do your Work alone, with friends, at events, or join me
on one of my 3 upcoming teleclasses that start in the next 2 weeks.
They’re all 8-week courses, starting on Feb. 10 and 11 (see below).
Love to all,
“Grace, I love how you are so affirming of everyone’s process and are
such an accepting/loving presence.”–Celia, teleclass participant
