What we’re about

This group is for anyone who struggles with binge eating, compulsive overeating, yo-yo dieting or any food-use disorder that causes emotional, physical and spiritual pain. This is not a diet or weight-loss group and we don't share information about food plans, diets or other "solutions" that focus on weight as a problem or losing weight as a goal.

Hello! I'm Lorie Loe, and I've had binge eating disorder for more than 50 years. I believe that compulsive eating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting and other food-use disorders are not a terrible curse, but one of the most profound opportunities for spiritual healing and wisdom we can ever have. The day I decided to stop trying to lose weight and just see myself as I really am, I began to dismantle a lifetime of shame around binge eating and to experience the profound peace of what I call The Sacred Binge: the ability to see what lies beneath insatiable hunger and use it to create a thrilling and authentic life. The Sacred Binge Study Group is focused on teaching ourselves to do just that: neutralize shame, forget about our size or our next diet, and instead learn to give ourselves what we are truly hungry for: a fulfilling life.

In The Sacred Binge Study Group, I assign a book, online course, video or other self-paced study materials on the topic of healing binge eating disorder and body acceptance. We then meet twice a month via Zoom to discuss our thoughts, profound experiences and authentic selves in an intimate, supportive community of like minded people.
