New Weight-Management Meetup in the Conference room at 711 E Walnut, Pasadena

Hi Everyone,

I am starting a new group and I wanted to give you all a heads up.  Basically, it uses the principles of Eckhart Tolle to give us the power to shed light on and food issues and weight control.  It is a big problem in our country and the roots of it are typically overlooked.  The first Weight-Management meetup is at the end of october on a Sunday, but I will make sure I don't mix up the two groups. 

 

Weight Loss Suffer-No-More meetups

www.meetup.com/suffer-no-more/­

These meetups address the issues of overweight and body image.

They are specifically focused on removing the pain and suffering of weight reduction. Instead of another "diet book" or "counting calories", we focus on the root feelings surrounding body image and food addiction. Food is not the "enemy". It is a wonderful part of life! We learn a love of our bodies AND a love of life.

In these meetups, we create a space to replace unconscious suffering and addictive eating with awareness - with presence - and with peace.

 

Our first Group Meeting is entitled "JOY".

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 this meetup is to remove the pain and suffering of weight recuction and weight management. Eat what you want, when you want, and how much you want. Sound 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.

We must have the freedom to eat with joy. Food is not our enemy. On the contrary, food is a beautiful and wondrous part of life. It tastes great and gives us energy for our bodies and joy for our spirit.

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. 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!
