The daily meditations at Geneen’s retreats are filled with huge insight, humor and, of course, radical kindness. In this hour long CD, Geneen works directly with retreat students during a meal, and all that is revealed on our plates when we break the automatic, hand-to-mouth compulsion.
Since the way we eat is the way we live, what we do with food is an opportunity to wake up to the entire rest of our lives, and how we deprive ourselves, how we give to ourselves, whether we allow ourselves to receive pleasure, joy and happiness. This audio presents the path of healing and radical transformation that emotional eating provides.
Geneen uses candor, humor and insight to describe the process of being in the present moment — “what is” — as we go through the many moments of our lives.
Describing her own turning points, Geneen reveals with candor, insight and laugh-out-loud humor how to use those moments in your life to discover the richness of your true nature. Where do you turn away from yourself and go for the metaphorical “hot fudge sundae?”
Using the principles of breaking free in this live talk, we learn the fundamentals of freedom from the obsession with food. And are reminded that what we truly want is not the one or two or three things we think will finally make us happy, but that our peace and contentment is always with us waiting to be known.
Amazing thing happen when we pay attention to what we are eating! When we actually taste the food that is in our mouths, our feelings abut ourselves, food and life changes dramatically. In her retreats, Geneen spends time with participants while they are eating — and these experiences turn out to be surprising, joyful and utterly profound.
When Food is Love consists of three one-hour programs dealing with the issues of overeating, compulsive eating, dieting, and the power and time food consumes in many lives. This series of programs is about realizing the power of one’s potential when food no longer is an obsession.
Binges are frantic, fierce times. We feel as if we are possessed, overtaken, and helpless to do anything about the wild energy that wants to consume everything in sight. In this CD, Geneen infuses compassion and kindness — qualities of which, when bingeing, we are in short supply — into the very heart of our compulsion to eat when we are not hungry.
