“Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. I encourage everyone to immerse themselves in this phenomenal book.” -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
In her first two books, Loving What Is and I Need Your Love-Is That True? Byron Katie showed how suffering can be ended by questioning the stressful thoughts that create it. Now, in A Thousand Names for Joy, she encourages us to discover the freedom that lives on the other side of inquiry.
Stephen Mitchell-the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching-selected provocative excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. With her stories of total ease in all circumstances, Katie does more than describe the awakened mind; she lets you see it, feel it, in action.
This unusual collaboration brings together the Way (the Tao) and the Work, Katie's form of self-inquiry and path to joy. In each chapter, Mitchell presents Katie with a passage from the Tao and she offers an exposition on that theme.
