“We are love, and there’s nothing we can do about that. Love is our nature. It’s what we are without our stories.” – Byron Katie
Byron Katie has written bestselling books including Loving What Is, I Need Your LoveIs That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy. She teaches a process of self-inquiry, called The Work, which helps people question and overcome their stressful beliefs. She will be speaking at the November 2010 Celebrate Your Life Conference in Phoenix, Arizona along with Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Doreen Virtue, Neale Donald Walsch and many more illuminating presenters. In anticipation of the event, we are sharing a few memorable quotes from Byron.
