If you suffer about your relationship with food -- you eat too much or too little, think about what you will eat constantly or try not to think about it at all -- you can be free. Just look down at your plate. The answers are there. Don't run. Look. Because when we welcome what we most want to avoid, we contact the part of ourselves that is fresh and alive. We touch the life we truly want and evoke divinity itself.
Since adolescence, Geneen Roth has gained and lost more than a thousand pounds. She has been dangerously overweight and dangerously underweight. She has been plagued by feelings of shame and self-hatred and she has felt euphoric after losing a quick few pounds on a fad diet. Then one day, on the verge of suicide, she did something radical: She dropped the struggle, ended the war, stopped trying to fix, deprive and shame herself. She began trusting her body and questioning her beliefs.
It worked. And losing weight was only the beginning.
She wrote about her discoveries in When Food Is Love, her first New York Times bestseller. She gave huge numbers of women their first insights into compulsive eating and she changed huge numbers of lives for the better.
Now, after more than three decades of studying, teaching and writing about what drives our compul-sions with food, Geneen adds a profound new dimension to her work in Women, Food and God. She begins with her most basic concept: The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. Your relationship with food is an exact mirror of your feelings about love, fear, anger, meaning, transformation and, yes, even God. But it doesn't stop there. Geneen shows how going beyond both the food and feelings takes you deeper into realms of spirit and soul to the bright center of your own life.
With penetrating insight and irreverent humor, Roth traces food compulsions from subtle beginnings to unexpected ends. She teaches personal examination, showing readers how to use their relationship with food to discover the fulfillment they long for.
Your relationship with food, no matter how conflicted, is the doorway to freedom, says Roth. What you most want to get rid of is itself the doorway to what you want most: the demystification of weight loss and the luminous presence that so many of us call "God."
Packed with revelations on every page, this book is a knock-your-socks-off ride to a deeply fulfilling relationship with food, your body...and almost everything else. Women, Food and God is, quite simply, a guide for life.
A fresh new approach to tapping in to our own creativity, using the images and artifacts of our dreams.
Getting inspired is one of the toughest parts of being an artist, whether we're a beginner or a seasoned professional. But as Tom Crockett shows us in this new book, finding ideas for our artwork is easier than we think. By simply exploring the images of our sleeping and waking dream states, we can discover a wealth of ideas and inspiration that are more authentic and powerful because they reveal our underlying spiritual self.
Having recognized the importance and fulfillment that comes from allowing our spiritual side to infuse our art, Tom Crockett has created a program to teach us, no matter what level of artistic experience, how to bring art and spirit into one. The four different types of creative expression Crockett has identified -- Finding, Arranging, Altering, and Making -- open up artistic options for everyone, even for those of us who cannot yet imagine that we have the ability to create art. Full of personal anecdotes from the author's creativity workshops and practical, easy-to-implement advice for tapping in to our hidden creativity, The Artist Inside teaches us:
how to access the dreaming world to heighten creativity that we can create in each piece of artwork a temporary home for spirit how creating a spiritual path can energize us and increase our intuitive capacity
When the process of making art is guided by the inner vision of our sleeping and waking dream states, we connect with something larger than ourself and rediscover that creativity can be both a spiritual path and an important life tool.

She explores their world with the courage and curiosity of a shaman and adventurer who is attuned to both environmental realities (we learn that the honeybee is in danger of disappearing) and the spiritual aspects of nature. Her artist's eye and appreciation for the honeybee's role in mythology and goddess lore add depth and wisdom to this multi-faceted work.
