A Letter from Turkey

Dearest Katie,

I want to write and share one of the endless internal dialogues that I have with you. As you may have heard, the situation in Turkey is rather turbulent and daily life is disturbed with a number of unfortunate incidents.

I am so very grateful to you and to The Work for being able to go through the day with a clear mind and inner peace and being able to invite people to do the same no matter what the external conditions are. Being diagnosed with cancer, and hearing that a bomb exploded and killed 39 people 100 meters away from where my daughter and grandchildren lived, did not disturb this peace, and I believe this is the most amazing blessing. It feels like being held by grace. If it were not for The Work, I would not be the same person that I am today under the circumstances.

I have people call me and thank me for The Work, for the way it enabled them to have a normal life in Turkey under the present conditions.

Katie, what you have given me, my children, and the world is beyond valuable and precious. It is a lifesaving survival tool that I will do my very best to continue to pass on to as many people as I can.

With much love and deep gratitude,
xoxoxo,
N.

Thank you, my dear N., my sister.

You are the embodiment of all that I would want to give in this world. No longer the world of suffering in this state of grace. I love you, and I think of you every time I hear the word “Turkey.” My family, our family.

xoxo,
