The Work of Byron Katie helps resolve any painful feelings anyone might have about anything. Provided you use the four questions and the turnaround of Byron Katie. That's the kicker - doing The Work. The Work is fool-proof. Provided you are truly honest with yourself and willing to give up beliefs that don't serve you and that are false. OK?

So good to see your post!
I myself am a passionate student of The Work; been doing it for about 6 years, and now I've purchased a PC and printer to accelerate my process even more!
Life before Byron Katie was a drag!

It works to the degree you put effort into it
It expanded my awareness to new perspectives which I didn't see before doing the work. So it provided emotional relief and in a sense healing. It was more a letting go of resistance caused by bogus beliefs I was holding.
There's a lot of free stuff available over the web like YouTube. I have an old site that has tons of her work for free EveryPathIs Presents: Byron Katie - The Work, Free MP3 Downloads. Katie was kind enough to allow me to share them. People from all over the world download 50-60GB's of her older recordings every month.

I am writing in response to your many posting about Byron Katie. I discovered The Work around 5 months and felt very drawn to it. I started reading about The Work, listening to recordings of Katie, and doing The Work, during the summer while I when I was on vacation from work, and I felt a new found sense of peace. I went to see her at the Kripala Center in New England and even did a session with her. However, about two months ago, some issues came up for me around which my story (using Katieís wording here) is very thick, and I went into a tail-spin. Before The Work I would have probably just avoided the people around whom all this stuff is coming up or I would have run. This time I am handling things differently and trying to do The Work on my thinking.
So now Iím sitting at my place at the start of the holidays and it feels like itís just me and my thinking. The pain is high and the temptation to stop doing The Work and return to my old ways of handling things is also high. This might include avoidance, self indulgence, gossiping, rallying people for support, and other techniques. I have heard Katie say before that she invites us to doubt and question, and in a sense that is why Iím writing you.
You have been doing the work for 6 years. Can you honestly say that your life is much better? Honestly? Do you feel at all like a push over now that you seem to have truly incorporated The Work? I mean do you ever feel like a push over? Do doubts about The Work ever creep in? Did you have a phase when you doubted the process? Does The Work relieve the pain around the stuff that runs really deep, like victim stuff?
If you would be open to share any of the process which you have gone through over the past 6 years I would be grateful!

I've done this for a while and have tried other types of self inquiry as well. As a discipline self inquiry is very helpful, particually used in conjunction with meditation.
Lets face it all you are doing is isolating and experiencing thoughts. The downside is that any tool used to try and rehabillitate the subconscious can be flawed if that is all you are doing. The subconscious is a bottomless pit of reactivity hence one needs to work outside of it to achieve real level ofunderstanding.

I'm a huge proponent of the work and although I've moved on to much more advanced forms of therapy, it's great for feeling better and coping with thoughts/feelings. However, IMO, it's not a long term therapy that's going to change behavioral patterns which is what we all want, isn't it? I've suffered from a lot of emotional trauma and it took moving on to more advanced forms of therapy in order to fully resolve some of the trauma's and problems I've experienced.
