Or Bríd Ní Chionaola, 00353 873569436,

Would you like to improve communication with yourself and others? To find your true voice and speak the truth without fear? To stop people-pleasing, to feel comfortable asking for what you want, saying what you mean and giving an honest no? To hear others without stressful interpretations of what you think they are saying?

Join us to identify and question the thoughts that prevent you from communicating clearly, take you out of your integrity, and hold you back in work and personal relationships.

In this 6-week teleclass, using The Work of Byron Katie, you’ll have an opportunity to

improve your communication skills and ability to listen.
discover your authentic voice
find freedom from limiting beliefs

Everyone is welcome, whether new to or experienced in The Work.


Four Week Online Teleclass:

I can’t have kids and that means…
Inquiring into the thoughts around infertility and involuntary childlessness

Teleclass -  accessible by phone or Skype
Dates: Four Thursdays January 21 – February 11, 2016
Time:  7 - 8.30pm Irish Time
Facilitated by: Brid Ni Chionaola, Certified Facilitator of The work of Byron Katie
Cost: €95 Euro/$105 USD
More Information: Contact me, Brid, at -;  +353873569436,

Facing the prospect of a life without kids of our own can feel unfair, unjust or torturous. We may look at others and feel that by comparison we are missing out in one of the great joys of life. We have cherished images all our lives of what our kids will be like and now those expectations are dashed.

In this four week teleclass, we will be using the four questions and turnarounds of The Work of Byron Katie to look at the root cause of our suffering, which may open us up to a radical acceptance of infertility.

This class is open to those who are new to or experienced in The Work. For those new to The Work, please read Loving What Is by Byron Katie before our first class.

We will cover these topics:
Week One: What do they have that I don’t have?
Week Two: Who’s to Blame?
Week Three: Doctors/Medications/Treatments/Alternative practitioners
Week Four: Hell is Other People!

At least an hour of homework (partner work and individual work) will be assigned each week between sessions.

"I have this amazing love affair with myself going on, because I realize what that Self is. There just cannot be another!"  (Byron Katie)


Monthly Event, Dublin from Oct 2014 onwards.

Food, work, busyness, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, T.V., shopping…

Many of us believe our emotions cause us to suffer so we reach outside ourselves to some of the activities and substances mentioned above to try to control, eradicate or medicate them. Our emotions, however, are merely an alarm bell to show us we’re believing thoughts that aren’t true for us.
Here’s the order of creation:  first comes the belief/thought, then the emotions, then action and then the result. If we want to uncover the truth behind our actions, we have to go back to the thought and investigate that.
In this teleclass, we will look at those circular thoughts, which when believed, lead to addictions and compulsions. By inquiring into these thoughts with The Four Questions and Turnarounds of The Work, we get to the root cause of the addictive cycle and to see our compulsions and addictions as merely alarm bells for our untrue thoughts. This class does not set out to cure compulsions or addictions, rather to meet them with understanding.
There will be a month long aftercare program and a follow up call with the presenters a month after the course ends.
This class is open to those who are new to, or experienced in, The Work. For those new to The Work, please read Loving What Is by Byron Katie before our first class.

This teleclass will cover the following topics:
Week One: Befriending my Addiction/Compulsion.
Week Two: Escaping the Pain Within
Week Three: Inquiring Into Self-Attack Thoughts (I am not good enough…)
Week Four: The Story of “I”.
Week Five: I am as Sick as my Secrets
Week Six: Emergency Kit/Making Amends

There will be also be one hour of partner work/homework each week between sessions.

“Bodies don’t crave, bodies don’t want, bodies don’t know, don’t care, don’t get hungry or thirsty. It’s what that mind attaches to – ice cream, alcohol, drugs, sex, money – that the body reflects. There are no physical addictions, only mental ones. Body follows mind. It doesn’t have a choice.” ~ Byron Katie, Question Your Thinking, Change The World.
