No matter how sophisticated or wealthy or broke or enlightened you are, how you eat tells all. Geneen Roth's masterwork, Women, Food and God explores the relationship between how we eat and how we see ourselves in the world.
"Couldn't put it down!!!"
Why do we eat? It's more than just a hunger for more food, teaches Geneen Roth. Your relationship with food is a microcosm of your relationship to being alive, and to your beliefs about trust, pleasure, deprivation, and nourishment. Now, Roth offers listeners When Food Is Food and Love Is Love, a deeply spiritual culmination of her groundbreaking work since the best-selling Feeding the Hungry Heart.
"Like being a part of one of her lectures"
When Food Is Love examines the motivations behind bingeing and obsessive dieting, and explains how such compulsive behavior sabotages intimate relationships. With compassion and penetrating wisdom, Geneen Roth reveals how to break destructive emotional patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers, physical and emotional - that make us human.
Why do we eat too much? Because we are hungry - but not for more food. In Feeding the Hungry Heart, you will learn how a deep internal hunger for self-respect and fulfillment often translates into compulsive eating. Geneen Roth - a "no more diets" pioneer for more than 15 years - has helped thousands of women look at the real truth about the unconscious motivations that can lead to distorted eating patterns.
When Geneen Roth and her husband lost their life savings, Roth joined the millions of Americans dealing with financial turbulence, uncertainty, and abrupt reversals in their expectations. The resulting shock was the catalyst for her to explore, in workshops and in her own life, how women’s habits and behaviors around money—as with food—can lead to exactly the situations they most want to avoid.
It is absolutely possible to transform your relationship with food. But it will take time, love and a willingness to be kind, curious, and tender with yourself. On Break Free from Emotional Eating, Geneen Roth reminds us of the joy and pleasure that eating is meant to bring us, helping us reclaim a healthy relationship with food through five key principles.
"Great Introduction to Bite by Bite"
In this guided meditation, Geneen Roth helps you to reconnect with your body, and learn to understand what it's trying to tell you. It's the first and most important step in changing your relationship with food and fully nourishing yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
"Gets you in touch with your body"
In Appetites, best-selling author Geneen Roth looks beyond her 15 years of pioneering work with women, food, and body image to ask the greatest of questions: What truly nourishes the human spirit? Through the lens of her own life experience, Roth examines the core of spirituality and the feelings and behaviors that can mask it. What happens when deep inner need is answered only with external "satisfaction"?
"This is not the book! This is a speech"
When you turn to food for anything other than giving your body what it wants and needs, it is a symptom that there's more than physical hunger going on: an inner challenge.
"Great Exercise in Paying Attention to My Body"
Women Food and God is Geneen Roth's masterwork, the final book she intends to write about the subject that has fascinated her since she wrote the bestselling When Food is Love two decades ago. From the very beginning, the listener is in the grip of an intelligent, humorous and thoughtful teacher who unravels the beginning of addiction until it's logical end.
