What we're about

Ready to go deep to understand the way you eat, using mindfulness, spiritual practices, and The Work of Byron Katie?

Please join me in this profound exploration and investigation....to experience peace beyond all the usual troubling beliefs around food, eating and other addictive/compulsive behavior (and thinking!) about your life. Eating Peace gatherings come in all forms and flavors (like food). You might join a 3 day immersion to study your behavior around food and eating in a deeply mindful way, you might come to a 2 hour drop-in group to be inspired to question your thinking and discover peace, or you might attend an ongoing group to explore eating behavior and stressful thoughts that "eat" at you over time.

Every kind of meeting opportunity is offered, whether a full-blown paid retreat, or a drop-in group, or an ongoing group with committed investigators who are interested in peace in this topic. It is possible to completely recover from an eating disorder, and experience peace and pleasure when it comes to eating and food.

In our shorter meetups we will identify our stressful thoughts and inquire using the four questions known as The Work of Byron Katie. We will have time to discuss and share feedback after we inquire. All you need to bring is yourself, and a notebook or journal if you like. I'll provide clipboards, worksheets, and pens.

First Friday online monthly Self-Inquiry Power Hour 90 Mins for Everyone

From the comfort of your own home anywhere

The Work is such a powerful tool...you can dial-in and share with others the practice of self-inquiry, on any stressful belief. If you feel courageous, consider raising your hand to do The Work (press *2 on your keypad). I'll guide everyone to fill out a Judge Your Neighbor worksheet on one specific troubling situation in your life. Here are the questions I'll be asking: 1) Why are you troubled, in this situation? I am ________ (name feeling) with _______ (name of person) because ____________. 2) How do you want that person to change? I want _____ (name of person) to ________. 3) What advice would you give to that person? He/she should ________. He/she shouldn't _________. Notice what you would advise them to do in that situation? 4) What is it that you need, in order to be happy, in that situation? I need _____ (name of person) to do, say, think, feel ______. Be specific. 5) Describe that person. Make a list. Usually this is one-word descriptive words. Don't edit yourself. You are saying what they are in that specific situation, the one you don't like. She/he is ________ . 6) What is it you never, ever want to experience again? I don't ever want ____ (name of person) to _____. I don't ever want _______. Write honestly, without editing, without trying to hold back or be non-judgmental.

You can volunteer to "go" and be in the hot seat, or just listen. Everyone will get the chance to inquire internally by following along.
