The Work 101 Is a Chance to Gain Confidence in Doing The Work
Here are some recent reviews from participants of The Work 101 course that just finished on October 20. Join us in January for the next course before it fills up.
“Well Recommended” – William
“This course was a great way for me to get clear about actually how to do The Work properly. Todd explains the technicalities of The Work and how to make sure you’re doing it properly in a technical way, for example making the turnarounds correctly.
“But the best knowledge I got was starting to learn how to be clear about doing The Work without motives and trying to use it to manipulate or change myself. I also got a lot more confident in my ability to do The Work, which I hadn’t been able to trust myself with before.
“There are so many nuances of The Work that get covered in the course and it gives such a clear and solid look at what The Work is and how to do it. What takes it to the next level is Todd’s presence and involvement, giving comments on your work and answering questions.
This course is absolutely wonderful if you notice that you’re having difficulties with certain parts of The Work, etc. Maybe even getting motivated to do it? It gets the momentum going and you get a place to build a strong ground to continue doing it yourself.”
“Such a Good Teacher” – Kathleen
“I have been doing the Work in fits and starts over the last 10 years. Whenever I did it, I experienced such a sense of clarity and joyfulness that I knew the Work would be an invaluable tool in my life.
“With The Work 101, Todd has created a vehicle that enhanced my understanding and appreciation of the Work. His understanding of the Work through personal experience is clear for all to see. He is willing to share his experience and in that sharing he shines a light on the Work in a way that clarifies it beautifully for me.
“The Work 101 deconstructs the steps of The Work of Byron Katie making it easily digestible and relevant. I felt supported at each and every step. Because one needs to do work every day on the course, it sets up a natural pattern of enquiry which will stay a part of my daily practice …it truly is meditation.
“The platform of the Work 101 is easy to navigate and, if anything is unclear, it is easy to go back to review the process. Todd is always available and responsive to the participants so I felt he was right alongside me as I did the Work.
“I enjoyed meeting others who were on the course and reading their worksheets and responses. It is always humbling and I learned from their sharing and helpful responses to each other and to me….a great community that I will miss.”
“Highly Recommended” – Liz
“I appreciate Todd’s compassion, patience, clarity, precision and detailed thoughtful responses to our questions. He has expertise in documenting and teaching the processes of The Work.
“The curriculum is thorough and includes video instruction as well as a pdf documents. All of the technical documents can be printed and kept for reference.
“I’ve been doing The Work for a few years and had not previously learned the technical aspects of The Work. After this course I feel more confident about facilitating. Todd’s course is a great value.”
“100% Recommended” – Marjie
“I got everything out of this course I needed to get the fire inside me to practice The Work really blazing.
“After doing it on my own and listening to podcasts here and there I knew I wanted a detailed, structured, accountable forum to do The Work In. This is it!
“Todd’s wealth of information and exercises are ideal for someone who is serious about learning the nitty gritty aspects of The Work. I felt supported, challenged and my knowledge increased 10-fold.
“If you are serious about diving in, this is the place to do it!”
“The Work 101” – Ty
“I just finished with The Work 101 facilitated by Todd. I learned things about my beliefs that I never knew I held. Throughout the class, I always felt I was in a safe environment to be vulnerable. The tools the class gave me are invaluable and I will continue to use them as I do more Inquiry but also in my daily interactions with people and events. The class was truly a gift to myself!”
“Love the work 101” – Maria
“I am so happy to have done the work 101. I had been doing the work for almost 1 year and 6 months, but in the last 6 weeks I felt I advanced from elementary to high school. Worth every penny. Will for sure recommend it to everyone that is serious about moving forward in their life.”
“The Best Way to Learn The Work” – Netsirk
“The Work 101 by Todd Smith is an excellent introduction to The Work. I’ve been doing the work for 7 years and found it so instructive. With all the tools offered—from seeing other people’s written work, writing your own work, partnering, videos, rapid replies to questions, etc.—it is well worth the time and money.
“For me writing worksheets and writing turnarounds is the crux of The Work. As Katie says, all war belongs on paper. In this forum you truly learn how to write a Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet and how to get clear on the offense. You also learn how to do a One-Belief-at-a-Time Worksheet worksheet and learn about all the technical turnarounds possible.
“This thorough training made it so I can do The Work alone at 2am (as that’s the time when my most suffering thoughts seem to show up.) I recommend this course to anyone interested in The Work. I am so grateful for the time Todd put into this course as well as the experience I received learning exactly how to do The Work.”
“Awesome, Thorough, Delightful” – Zoe
“I lucked out on finding and starting Todd’s class The Work 101 just a few weeks after having listened to Byron Katie’s “Loving What Is” on Audible. I found Todd’s website through an internet search and squeezed in right before the deadline for the start of the course. I am so grateful I was able to get in.
“This is an amazing and thorough step-by-step exploration of The Work. It took me so much deeper into The Work than I could have guessed would be possible at the outset or that I know now I would have been able to do on my own.
“In addition, the support of the group participants and Todd’s and others’ valuable feedback helped me to go very deeply into some highly charged beliefs and start to turn them around. Can’t say enough about Todd’s insights, presence, organization and integrity. What a delight to meet and work with the others in the group as well.”
“Thorough Course for Both Beginners and Advanced Participants” – Caroline
“I am thankful for having done Todd’s course The Work 1-0-1. It was a thorough rehearsal of the method and all the tools included. Doing the Work every day in this forum was a pleasure. Todd took us all by the hand and supported us along the way. Being part of a group was a pleasure as well. Although the contact was digital I felt very close to my fellow participants.”
The Next Course Starts January 15, 2018

Have a great weekend,
“The Work is merely four questions; it’s not even a thing. It has no motive, no strings. It’s nothing without your answers. These four questions will join any program you’ve got and enhance it. Any religion you have—they’ll enhance it. If you have no religion, they will bring you joy. And they’ll burn up anything that isn’t true for you. They’ll burn through to the reality that has always been waiting.” Byron Katie, Loving What Is
