Living Beyond Belief - April 14-17, 2016:Three days diving into "The Work," the ultimate inner adventure toward your own freedom."
Are there areas of your life that don’t work? Where you don’t experience freedom and ease? Limiting, stressful beliefs may be at play!! Limiting or stressful beliefs act like a glass prison. We can’t see them; but, when triggered, they keep us locked in painful patterns. Living Beyond Belief is a three day retreat devoted to identifying the beliefs that make up your glass prison – and to stepping out. Imagine living from an unshakable happiness and peace in any situation. That’s what happens to people who do “The Work,” a meditation using four simple questions that take you straight to the thinking that’s holding you hostage and to the truth that sets you free, your truth. Men at Easton are already diving into this practice and reporting breakthroughs in places they have been stuck their whole lives. Please join us. We will explore the core practices of The Work created by Byron Katie. We will learn how to identify our deeply held stressful thoughts about our bodies, our partners, our parents, and our colleagues and turn them around. We will connect to others passionate about transformation and freedom in an environment of safety, compassion and fun. At the end, you will walk away with a tool to free yourself in any situation that you can use for life.
Justin Taylor is a graduate of Byron Katie’s School for the Work and a Certification Candidate in her Institute for facilitators of The Work. He has been applying The Work daily to every aspect of his life for the past seven years and enjoys nothing more than meeting his mind with understanding and watching it transform. He is passionate about sharing this process with others, including at Easton where he shares The Work whenever he can.

More about Byron Katie & "The Work
Byron Katie discovered The Work in 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing. Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. She has devoted her life to sharing this truth and The Work ever since. www.thework.com
For a taste of Katie and The Work in practice, please visit her youtube channel. Recommended (but not required) reading before attending: Loving What Is. "The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want." ~ Byron Katie “Byron Katie’s Work is a great blessing for our planet.” – Eckhart Tolle
