Our next Group Meeting is entitled "PEACE".
Our bodies are our own. No one can tell us what to eat, what to drink, how much to exercise, what supplements to take, etc.
The objective for us at these meetups is to remove the pain and suffering of weight reduction and weight management. Eat what you want, when you want, and how much you want. Sounds Crazy?
Of course it does! Everybody who writes a new "diet" book thinks they know what's best for you and has "the perfect solution". They have conditioned us to believe we are eating the wrong foods or eating at the wrong times or eating too much of this or that. "If we could only follow their wonderful program, we would be successful and THEN a wonderful life would suddenly appear for us." We know now that this is simply wrong! These approaches are in fact useless and universally doomed to failure. Even worse, their failures leads to self-recrimination and a feeling of powerlessness.
The desire to be thin can overcome the desire for food for a while. However, although pitting one desire against another CAN work for a short time, it is a strategy ultimately doomed to failure. No one has the power to fight themselves forever.
We offer an alternative. No more fighting. We can win the war by surrendering. Let us declare Peace!
In these meetups, we attack the underlying causes of Overweight. We learn a Love of our bodies and a Love of food... ALL food - not just what some "know-it-alls" call "healthy". We use methods to get in touch "directly" with our feelings regarding food and with real feelings and issues in our lives! We create a space to replace unconscious suffering and addictive eating with awareness - with presence - and with peace.
Only by Waking Up and seeing our Beautiful Life clearly, can we break the cycle of despair.
In these meetups, there is no "work" to be done, no "concepts" to be understood, and no "psychological" growth needed.
That is not what life is about. Life is about Joy and about Love, and about finding Peace. Deep down, we all know this, but through constant media badgering and the resulting guilt and shame, we have forgotten it.
Come Be with us. Come shed excess weight without stress, without goals (ugh!), and without shame. Come Discover the simple Joys and amazing Peace in living each day with no regrets, no guilt, and no fear!
