Mental Yoga: The Work of Byron Katie

With Susan Marrufo

Join Samarasa Co-founder, Susan Marrufo for a day of self- inquiry or “mental yoga”. The Work of Byron Katie is a simple, direct and profound process of self-inquiry. Anybody can do it, all it takes is an open mind. It is the path to an enlightened mind summed up in 4 questions and a turn-around. With The Work, we learn to identify, question and “unlearn” stressful thoughts that keep us from experiencing the joy of reality as it is. Come if you’re curious!!

“Sitting and watching Susan and [the other student] do the work yesterday caused a MASSIVE shift in me and I honestly don’t think I’m going to be the same. For the first time I understood who I was, apart from my thoughts. I was able to notice that my beliefs weren’t the truth and I pulled away all the lies and felt peace I’ve never felt before. And I’ve been carrying it with me ever since.”

– Ally (Past workshop participant)

About Susan

Susan Marrufo, MA, E-RYT 500, left the United States and a job in advertising in 2008 to travel internationally and experience life beyond the confines of her cultural conditioning. She received her first 500-hr yoga certification in Thailand in 2009, where she began her studies of the classical yogic scriptures and delved deeply into esoteric tantric philosophy.  After 2 years of teaching month-long tantric based courses on the banks of the Ganges in India and the Pacific coastal towns of Mexico, Susan returned to the US to begin a residential internship with the Kripalu School of Yoga, where she taught in and project managed several Kripalu yoga teacher trainings as well as received her 2nd 500-hr teacher training certification from the Kripalu School of Yoga.

Since then, Susan has split her time between India, Thailand and the US, facilitating group courses in the inquiry of yoga and meditation as well as diving increasingly deeper into her own yogic studies. After many years of travel, she is happy to have found a home in the City of Angels.

Susan wishes to express deepest gratitude to her teacher, Sri Prem Baba.
