Description: 

In the midst of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a profound invitation to come home to yourself. An invitation to transform your relationship to food, to your body, to yourself by exploring patterns of thought, feelings and beliefs that have kept you from feeling fully alive. 

During this interactive 2-hour intensive with Geneen Roth, we will explore the touchstones that shift the paradigm of shame and suffering around our bodies, food and weight to one of power and joy. What an opportunity!

SPECIAL INVITATION. Enroll in Geneen’s upcoming Zoom 6-day retreat: December 1-6, 2020 This Extraordinary Moment.  Every Wednesday join Geneen’s Zoom talk and meditation:  Settling, Calming, Quieting

About the speaker, Geneen Roth

Geneen Roth is the author of ten books, including the just-released This Messy Magnificent Life and New York Times bestsellers When Food Is Love, Lost and Found, and Women Food and God, as well as The Craggy Hole in My Heart and the Cat Who Fixed It. Over the past thirty years, she has worked with  thousands of people in her groundbreaking workshops and retreats and has appeared on numerous national shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, the Today show, Good Morning America, and The View. She lives in California with charms of hummingbirds; her husband Matt; and Izzy the fabulous, eating-disordered dog.

Geneen Roth's pioneering books were among the first to link compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight and body image. Rather than pushing away the "crazy" things we do, Geneen's work proceeds with the conviction that our actions and beliefs make exquisite sense, and that the way to transform our relationship with food, our body, and so much more in our life is to be open, curious and kind with ourselves -- instead of punishing, impatient and harsh.
