The Work Coach – Heinz Meisnitzer


Training to be a Coach for The Work (vtw)

This Training to be a Coach for The Work within the framework of the vtw (Verband für The Work of Byron Katie) is for those who work in areas that help people and for those that want to get to know themselves better and want to make peace with their thinking.


Preconditions for the admittance for the training is the participation in Intensive Seminars with at least 4 seminar days, or other comparable days to intensive seminars with The Work. Whoever has visited the School for The Work of Byron Katie or has participated in it is also within their rights to be admitted to this training.

Training Period

The training consists of 14 seminar days altogether that are split into two modules. The main focus is to meet your own story with understanding through your own experience with The Work. The experiences with our own process make it possible for us to facilitate others without fear. In the training we learn to work with others, relaxed and professional, with The Work. The practical exercise is supported through some theoretical elements.
