JOURNEY INTO FREEDOM
Facilitated by Philippe Leduc
Reality is always kinder than our stories about it, says Byron Katie. And every time we suffer, it's because we’re believing a story that conflicts with reality. The Work reveals that our suffering comes not from reality itself, but from thinking that it should be different than it is.
The Work of Byron Katie is a simple yet radical method of inquiry into the stressful thoughts that fuel our suffering. The Work helps us unravel these deceitful thoughts, free ourselves from the grip of our conditionings, and uncover our true nature: joy, peace, love, and freedom.
The Work is a form of meditative inquiry done with pen and paper. During this workshop, you will learn how to investigate the beliefs that underlie whatever suffering there is in your life. There will be some partner work as well as individual work. The only requisite is an open mind.
*This evening will be facilitated in French. English translation can be offered by request.
Flowland Montreal is a beautiful loft space in the heart of the Mile-End. Cushions, backjacks, and blankets are provided.
Philippe started using The Work in 2008 after reading Byron Katie’s Loving What Is. He was hooked, and during the following two years, he attended Katie’s School for the Work twice. Since, he has offered workshops in Canada and Thailand. He has explored several meditative traditions and ordained as a Buddhist monk in 2017. He is excited to share this simple method of inquiry.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“It’s incredible how deceptive our minds can be, how quickly we say “This is true, I know how it is.” This workshop broke some of my limiting beliefs and destructive thinking patterns. Since then, I feel lighter, calmer and more tolerant toward others and myself.”
-Joshua David, Germany
“A simple approach to high-level mental gymnastics. I was very surprised with the discoveries I made. Thank you.”
-Alexandre Sirois, Montréal
