Women, Food and God
Like so many women – I have spent a lifetime sorting out my relationship to food – and my body. There is a reason that Geneen Roth’s new book “Women, Food and God” is a best seller. Woman just can’t get a grip on their relationship with food and their bodies.
The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. No matter how sophisticated or wise or enlightened you believe you are, how you eat tells all. The world is on your plate. When you begin to understand what prompts you to use food as a way to numb or distract yourself, the process takes you deeper into realms of spirit and to the bright center of your own life. Rather than getting rid of or instantly changing your conflicted relationship with food, Women Food and God is about welcoming what is already here, and contacting the part of yourself that is already whole—divinity itself.
The first step in gaining some semblance of sanity in this very complicated dance between our food, our bodies, and how life constantly impacts that relationship is to stop whatever you are doing and feel.
Pick up Geneen Roth’s new book. It’s a great way to begin the conversation with yourself.
