Sliding Scale: $90 – 250. Code GR1S19.


Description:
The way we eat is the way we live, which makes our relationship with food a potent doorway to uncovering our deepest beliefs about being alive— scarcity, deprivation, struggling, freedom and peace. During this day retreat, we will explore the touchstones that shift the paradigm of shame and suffering around our bodies, food and weight to one of power and joy. Although there may be weight and food challenges to being in a human body, there is also the possibility of living with ease and relaxation in it, and to be in alignment with what allows it to flourish.

Bio:
For over thirty years, Geneen has worked with hundreds of thousands of people, helping them transform difficult relationships with food and so much more. She is one of the originators of the intuitive eating movement and using food and eating as a doorway to spirituality (and to uncovering our deepest beliefs about being alive). Her pioneering approach outlines the link between compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues such as forgiveness and trust in the unseen that go far beyond food, weight and body image.

Geneen is the author of ten books, including her newest book, This Messy Magnificent Life, and the New York Times bestsellers Women Food and God, Lost and Found and When Food Is Love . Geneen has appeared on: Super Soul Sunday, The Oprah Show, 20/20, The NBC Nightly News, The View, The Today Show, and Good Morning America. She lives in California with charms of hummingbirds; her husband Matt; and Izzy the fabulous, eating-disordered dog.
