Self-Help Groupies Book Club

Thursday, April 6th & 20th
6 – 8 PM

Join the next discussion about “Loving What Is; Four questions that can change your life” by Byron Katie! The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is. Learn More & RSVP!
