Description

Internationally acclaimed best-selling author Byron Katie's most anticipated work since Loving What Is. 

In A Mind at Home with Itself, Byron Katie illuminates one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, The Diamond Sutra (newly translated by distinguished scholar Stephen Mitchell), to reveal the nature of the mind and to liberate us from painful thoughts, using her revolutionary system of self-inquiry called "The Work". Byron Katie doesn't merely describe the awakened mind; she empowers us to see it and feel it in action. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, A Mind at Home with Itself offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death and is certain to become a classic. 

In the midst of a normal American life, Byron Katie became increasingly depressed and, over a 10-year period, sank further into despair and suicidal thoughts. Then, one morning in 1986, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her. Its direct result, The Work, has helped millions of people all over the world to question their stressful thoughts and set themselves free from suffering. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I feel at peace with life

I noticed my ego and my attachment to thoughts slowly start to dissolve while reading this book, and other Byron katie works. Absolutely lifechanging.

Bizarre

I have enjoyed Byron Katie's other books and teachings but am definitely returning this one. I have gritted through about half and can't go on. Threadless...very esoteric...just couldn't engage at all. Actually found it uncomfortable to listen to because of how bizarre it was, and I usually can find something useful to take away from most all books in this genre.

Byron Katie is better than a drug

What did you love best about A Mind at Home with Itself?

She doesn’t talk down to you. You get to experience firsthand, through others, what it is like to transform your life. To go from pain to joy.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

You can hear the love in her voice.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from A Mind at Home with Itself?

Her message is all you have to know to have a happy life. It can be summarized by the title from an earlier book. Loving What Is. If you can do that, you are guaranteed happiness.

Any additional comments?

No matter what is going on or what kind of trauma I am experiencing, I just listen to her books over and over and Katie brings me right back to center and a place of peace and joy. I have seen her and believe her to be the most loving human I have met. If you have not done the work, it can even sound harsh, but it is only when you are unwilling to take responsibility for your own life and happiness. When you do, you can be filled with joy.

fantastic book, rereading it right away

Loved that it was read by the authors.
If you like Byron Katie's Work, you'll love this book. It builds on the previous books and is a wonderful crowning jewel of BK's writings.

For everyone everywhere

It’s great listening to Bryon Katie while doing my work or other chores.
Most of the time what she is saying is so compelling that I have to stop and listen, or I go back and listen again.

Amazingly insightful and authentic. The Work works. It’s wonderful. I highly recommend this book to everyone I know.

Too much Steven

While I’m sure he’s a fabulous guy. I want to learn more from Katie. Steven seems to be using her unbiased and pure platform to push this sutra and Buddhism on me. I just wanted more of Katie. Love you Katie

Dramatic mental shifts

I’ve encountered Byron Katie’s Work before, but I didn’t understand it until this book. Inquiry has changed my life in profound ways.

Disappointing

What disappointed you about A Mind at Home with Itself?

It was uninteresting and did not make sense to me. I am not even going to finish it. I will definitely give more thought to future purchases.

Has A Mind at Home with Itself turned you off from other books in this genre?

Maybe. I cannot be sure.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed reading Loving What Is. I even found it personally valuable. But this one, I will return.

If you loved "1000 Names for Joy" this is for you

I loved the Diamond Sutra and Katie's elaboration on it. It brought me great insights. I fully recommend this book to anyone who is interested in either The Work or The Diamond Sutra.
