“Who Would You Be Without Your Story?” with Tim McLean
September 20, 2017 @ 18:30-21:30
The Work of Byron Katie Facilitator / C+F Institute for Transpersonal Studies President / Japan Transpersonal Association and Faculty of The Enneagram Institute Co-Founder [Full Bio]
Date: Sept. 20th (Wed.), 2017
Time: 6:30pm-9:30pm (Opening Special 3-hr Workshop)
Who would you be without your story? Who would you be without the stressful thoughts and limiting beliefs we have running in our lives every day? The stressful thoughts that keep us from being present and experiencing the peace of mind, creativity and abundance that is always available, here and now. In this workshop, Tim McLean will share with us the simple and powerful process of self-inquiry called, The Work of Byron Katie. Byron Katie, defines “The Work” as a way to identify and question the thoughts and beliefs that limit our lives and cause all the stress and suffering in our world. The Work consists of four questions and what Katie calls, a “turnaround” which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you were thinking and believing. As we do The Work and question our stressful thoughts and beliefs, our attachments to them unravel and let go. The result is relaxation, fearlessness, joy, creativity, and peace of mind. The Work works for anyone with a pen and paper, and an open mind.

In this 180-min workshop, you will have the opportunity to identify the places in your thinking where you are limited, frustrated or suffering and then through inquiry with the work, “turn it around” to experience new insights, understanding and the abundance of life in reality–beyond the limits of your stressful thoughts and stories.
“When we question our thoughts, we see choices and opportunities that we could never have imagined before.”
