Do you fear food?  Does just looking at food make you feel like you are gaining weight?  Are you too busy, too stressed, too involved with more important things than nourishing yourself?  Do you nourish others but not yourself? Do you have a love-hate relationship with food?

It is time to nourish yourself.

Eating is a sacred act.  Something living dies and you take it in, whether you have hunted or produced it yourself or buy it from the supermarket.  Part of being human means causing death in order to live.  To treat the act of eating as a chore, as something to be feared or avoided, is to denigrate the gift of love from the earth and the plants and the animals.

Eating is one of the most basic acts of self-nourishment and the way to wholeness is to come into right relationship with food.  Mindful eating can support this practice.
