Horrible Food--Wonderful Food!
July 20 - September 7, 2012
Do you wonder why you ate so much without consciously feeling it until after a meal is over? Do you worry that some foods will hurt you if you eat them, or if you don’t eat them? Do you constantly return to thinking about when, where, how or if you’ll eat…and wonder how to stop your obsessive thinking, or how to fix your diet? Are you uncertain about what your stressful thoughts even ARE around food and eating, when it just seems you feel bad, scared, sad or hopeless?
And what about the endless thinking about losing weight. When, how long it will take, what your weight is at the moment, what it was like when you used to weigh less, how it will be when you weigh something different in the future…
There are so many approaches to eating and volumes of books written on how to eat, when to eat, where to eat, what to eat, what not to eat…and that’s not even taking into consideration our judgments about our bodies, what they weigh, how they’re operating, and if they’re attractive or good enough. Our relationship with food I find is a microcosm of how we view life, how fearful, how suspicious, how sad we may feel about getting it right. It relates to how we believe we don’t have enough of something, or that there is too much of something else, or whether we can really trust the flow of in and out like the tides, whether we can live with the unknown mystery of All That Is.
Join us for this teleclass to investigate with fresh eyes our concepts about eating and using energy in the form of food, and how we feel about the body and the variety of sizes we all have. There is wonderful power of healing in doing the Work in a group and witnessing the beliefs that rise out of other people’s minds.

About the Presenter
Grace spent 10 years experiencing brutally painful beliefs resulting in bulimia, anorexia, bingeing, dieting and panic around body image and food. After some years of therapy and normalizing, and then finding The Work, she lives as someone whose relationship with food is constantly, amazingly peaceful.

Here in The Work, I found a way to gently stop my battles with anyone or anything…even the most sad, horrifying, disgusting or irritating things…including the battles I have raged with me. Some examples of my most changed stories, ones that used to be a nightmare and now are exciting and joyful:
