In this event the focus is on unconditional forgiveness of self and others through discovery of the thoughts that keep people from loving the people closest to them and from loving themselves. When these thoughts are questioned it becomes possible to live with a freedom that is hardly imaginable. All are welcomed to ignite the fire that burns away the stories built around our hearts.

This intensive is also a gateway into the Institute for The Work* for those who wish to deepen their inquiry or to become Certified Facilitators.

Anyone who wants to end their suffering is invited to become immersed in inquiry with Byron Katie and experience her Five-day Forgiveness Intensive.

Sessions will be held at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, surrounded by great beauty in a valley that J. Krishnamurti referred to as Shangri-La.

*The Institute for The Work offers the only authorized facilitator-training course for The Work.


Byron Katie has one job: to show people how to end their suffering. She has been bringing The Work to millions of people around the world for more than twenty years through her website (where everything you need in order to do The Work is free), public events, weekend workshops, the nine-day School for The Work, and her 28-day residential Turnaround House program. Byron Katie is the author of three bestselling books: Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy; her other books are Question Your Thinking—Change the World, Who Would You Be Without Your Story?, Peace in the Present Moment (with Eckhart Tolle), and, for children, Tiger-Tiger, Is It True?
