Bookshop Santa Cruz is pleased to present Byron Katie and her new book A Mind at Home with Itself, a fresh look at one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, The Diamond Sutra (newly translated in these pages by distinguished scholar Stephen Mitchell). Using her revolutionary system of self-inquiry called "The Work." Byron Katie doesn't merely describe the awakened mind; she empowers us to see it and feel it, in action. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, A Mind at Home with Itself offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death and is certain to become a classic. Ms. Katie will join us for a book talk and signing.

Byron Katie discovered inquiry in 1986. She has been traveling around the world since 1992, teaching The Work directly to hundreds of thousands of people at free public events, in prisons, hospitals, churches, corporations, battered women's facilities, universities and schools, at weekend intensives, the nine-day School for The Work, and her 28-day Turnaround House. She is the author of three bestselling books: Loving What IsI Need Your Love-Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy. Her other books are Question Your Thinking-Change the WorldWho Would You Be Without Your Story?A Friendly Universe, and, for children, Tiger-Tiger, Is It True?

“Byron Katie has rocked my world and shaken loose my mind more thoroughly than any other spiritual teacher I’ve ever encountered. I would recommend A MIND AT HOME WITH ITSELF to anyone like me—to anyone who has ever felt like her own mind was a very dangerous neighborhood.” —Elizabeth Gilbert

“I think Byron Katie is just a real thing. I love her to death. She’s pure and her intent is only to serve and she brings people back to reality so quickly. Teaches them not to believe their limiting thoughts and to question them and find the real truth.” —Tony Robbins

A Mind at Home with Itself points directly to the wisdom within us, the ultimate treasure that resides in the open heart and quiet mind—and it shows us exactly how to access it. Its insights sparkle and shimmer from every page.” —Paul Hawken
