Geneen Roth


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. She believes that we eat the way we live, and that our relationship to food, money, love is an exact reflection of our deepest held beliefs about ourselves and the amount of joy, abundance, pain, scarcity we believe we have (or are allowed) to have in our lives. 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 is to be open, curious and kind with ourselves -- instead of punishing, impatient and harsh. In the past thirty years, she has worked with hundreds of thousands of people using meditation, inquiry, and a set of seven eating guidelines that are the foundation of natural eating. Geneen Roth is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Women Food and God. She has appeared on many national television shows including: The Oprah Show, 20/20, The NBC Nightly News, The View, CBS Early Show, The Today Show, and Good Morning America. Articles about Geneen and her work have appeared in numerous publications including: O: The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Time, Elle, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. She has written monthly columns in Good Housekeeping Magazine and Prevention Magazine. Geneen is the author of nine books, including bestsellers Lost and Found and When Food Is Love. Course 1: The Principles Your relationship to food, no matter how conflicted, is the doorway to freedom. The Principles course is, quite simply, a guide for your life. Over the 8-part program, Geneen outlines the basic principles and many practices that are the foundation of her program for change and transformation. Who should take this course? Take The Principles course if you are seeing the following patterns in your own life. • Think about food or eating or your weight more often than you’d like – or worse, almost every moment of every day. • Have tried many diets, lost weight, and gained it back again and again. • Struggle with your weight, your feelings about yourself, and your relationship with food. • Use food to medicate, drown, or hide your feelings from yourself or others. • Feel hopeless about ever being free from your obsession with food, eating, or your weight. Eat when you’re not hungry and don’t stop when you’ve had enough. • Feel that there’s something missing in your life that you try to fill with food. • Have trouble believing in your own worthiness. • Feel angry or ashamed with yourself because of the size of your body. • Know that there’s something more to being alive but don’t know how to find it. If you think you’re ready to make these changes in your life, you can start right now. WHAT PEOPLE SAY "Many people are talking about wholeness today, but what makes Geneen Roth different is her microscopic honesty. She doesn't hold back. Her work is about the objective truth, and you can feel it nourishing your body." -- Christiane Northrup, MD "Geneen's work will blow you away. It is beautiful and funny and deep, and most of all, she speaks the truth." -- Anne Lamott
