Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Simply Brilliant!! Love it!!"
    What did you like most about A Mind at Home with Itself?

    A Mind at rest with Itself is the best book, I have listened to in a long time.
    It is narrated by Byron Katie most of the time and she speaks from Clarity and takes you on her Awakening in detail. It take you to a whole deeper understanding of the Work.
    I am finding it an absolute gem to deepen my own enquiry to undo more conditioning and rest as Awareness.

    Can't recommend this book enough!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Mind at Home with Itself?

    When Katie explains how to use the Work to undo more stories and remain Free


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

    All of them are great!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Born to be Free.


    Any additional comments?

    Love it!!

    "worth listening to"

    Katie is always great to listen to, there is a lot of similar work on Loving What Is, which I personally think is better than this, this is more focused on spiritually which is okay but not as powerful

    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.

    "Skeptical, But Going To Try It"

    This is well-presented. I enjoyed the weaving of BKM's method with a dialogue of the Buddha and one of his students.

    My skepticism arises from the fact that I've tried self-help in written form before, but got nowhere with it. I quit mainly out of anxiety about what painful memories it brought up.

    I have an acquaintance who is a Work facilitator....that's how I learned about this. So......Nothing ventured, Nothing gained, right? (to poke a little fun at the Buddha 😃

    "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.
