‘If I had known about the ease of application and the general principles used, I would have surely just invested in one course; this particular one based on the philosophies of Byron Katie. It is a non-religious and non-demanding method. You present it with such ease, which made it easy and comfortable to participate – BRILLIANT.’

‘By focusing on the mindset of each delegate, and by addressing the question of values and the imposition of ideas, you captured the imagination of the delegates and unleashed their creativity in addressing the many issues that affect education in our schools.

‘I was fortunate to have experienced the transformative work of Dr Kriben Pillay, based on the work of Byron Katie. The process works equally well when applied to one's business or personal life, and is particularly useful when experiencing difficult inter-personal interactions. It ultimately enables one to take responsibility and systematically resolve a situation through positive actions.’

–Saleem Abdulla


Byron Katie's Work is a masterpiece of simplicity for people of all ages and cultures. We have found more freedom in all aspects of our lives. The awareness that it is not our business to judge or attempt to change others has given us the time to look inwards and become better and more successful humans. Freedom is within each of us.
