Internationally acclaimed bestselling 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 in these pages 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 ten-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.
|Review Quote*||"A truly illuminating and lively hookup of revered ancient Zen Diamond Sutra teachings and a wild and clear-eyed modern sage. It will help you to question deeply, inspire your spirit, and awaken your understanding."|
|Review Quote*||A Mind At Home With Itself-the words of an ancient spiritual master illuminated by the words of a modern one-shows us that life beyond suffering is possible, and can take each reader's mind home to its singular, unique, immeasurably precious self."|
|Review Quote*||"Byron Katie has rocked my world and shaken loose my mind more thoroughly than any other spiritual teacher I've ever encountered. I would recommend A MIND AT HOME WITH ITSELF to anyone like me-to anyone who has ever felt like her own mind was a very dangerous neighborhood."|
|Review Quote*||"I think Byron Katie is just a real thing. I love her to death. She's pure and her intent is only to serve and she brings people back to reality so quickly. Teaches them not to believe their limiting thoughts and to question them and find the real truth."|
