Dr. Sonja Hagemann

An Intro to The Work of Byron Katie

Loving What Is

Life comes at you fast, trying to keep up with change can cause anxiety and fear. But what if those emotions weren’t actually the cause of stress, but rather the effects of believing in a thought? What if clarity and peace were the natural result of questioning our beliefs? And what if all you needed to move from confusion to clarity was pen, paper, an open mind—and a method of inquiry called The Work of Byron Katie?

The Work is the simplest and most powerful method of inquiry I have found. It is a way to question the beliefs that cause all the suffering and violence in the world. It has been my dearest, most cherished companion for breaking free from the prison of my mind and I don’t know how my life would be without it now.  My hearts desire is to make this tool available to any and everyone interested in finding peace within themselves.

Join us in learning how to question your beliefs and wake up from the dream.

During this introductory presentation you will learn:
-how to identify and question your stressful thinking
-a tool to profoundly deepen your connection to yourself
-a powerful tool that can help you live with clarity and integrity and maybe even make you a better dowser

“What I love about The Work is that it allows you to go inside and find your own happiness, to experience what already exists within you, unchanging, immovable, ever-present, ever-waiting. No teacher is necessary. You are the teacher you’ve been waiting for. You are the one who can end your own suffering.” Byron Katie

 Anthony Douglas Williams speaking about:  Inside the Divine Pattern – Discovery of Truth, Wisdom, and Prophecy
Uncover the mysteries of this important time in our history through ancient spiritual knowledge and new scientific research. Studies of specific numbers and letters have led to unusual findings hidden within lost knowledge and ancient mysteries. Unique and unusual patterns are discovered revealing links between modern scientists and ancient philosophers. These new discoveries point to 12/21/2012 at 11:11 UT

Inside the Divine Pattern helps to uncover the meaning of our current earth changes, the mysterious number phenomena known as 11:11, the ominous date of December 21, 2012, and the significance of science’s new understanding of our eleven dimension universe.

Inside the Divine Pattern reveals truth, wisdom, prophecy and change – a change for the better.  We are not near the end; we are entering a new beginning. Inside the Divine Pattern provides us with unique insights into life at this significant time in our history.
