    “The premise of Katie’s work (which she calls The Work), is that our suffering is a result of our thoughts about our lives, not our circumstances.” Is it true? I think there is great danger for folks to leap to that conclusion, and there is great danger to foster a kind of internal gaslighting by those subject to abusive relationships… and…. Is It True? The way I have been looking at the questions (and the recommended practice) is to allow one to break out of cyclical thinking patterns that are ‘believed’ and integrated into behavior patterns that continue to cause harm.

    Love this! I had a very similar experience.. I used the work to stay in a super dysfunctional situation and when I was still not a peace after doing the work I thought I was doing something wrong. I have realised that when I feel resentful often I need to tell the person/people… I don’t expect to get the outcome I hoped for but I need to speak my truth and that is something that is completely ignored with BK. The Facebook groups are is a mass exercise in spiritual bypassing. Great article, xxxx

  3. Thank you, your article resonated for me. I have been doing the work for 20 plus years. In the last couple of years it has shifted greatly as I do more parts work/IFS. I found your comment about questioning a story really helpful! When I start making things up or assigning meaning this is where I use the work. Anything with trauma I don’t like it. Really finding the 2 first questions to be triggering. Also, I am over spiritualizing ass holes. I don’t have to have a relationship with mean people to prove I am a good person. Perhaps it is just the opposite.

    Thank you for posting! Wholeheartedly agree. Listening to podcast “At Home with BK” allowed me more insight as I had to step back from the practice. As BK walks different people through their worksheets, instructing them to “be there now”in the triggering situation, I see part of the practice is to feel the feelings. However for me personally I have found much better tools for me, such as visualizing my feelings as a small child to be nurtured and visualizing spirit/source as the comforting parent.
