“We don’t want to be thin because thinness is inherently life-affirming or lovable or healthy. If this were true, there would be no tribes in Africa in which women are fat and regal and long-lived. There would be no history of matriarchies in which women’s fecundity and sheer physical abundance were worshiped. We want to be thin because thinness is the purported currency of happiness and peace and contentment in our time. And although that currency is a lie—the tabloids are filled with miserable skinny celebrities—most systems of weight loss fail because they don’t live up to their promise: weight loss does not make people happy. Or peaceful. OR content. Being thin does not address the emptiness that has no shape or weight or name. Even a wildly successful diet is a colossal failure because inside the new body is the same sinking heart. Spiritual hunger can never be solved on the physical level.”
~ Geneen Roth, Women Food and God
Here’s something you might or might not know about me:
Yes, I’m a health coach and I help people lose weight and blah blah blah. But I *actually* deal in the currency of the sacred.
Particularly the sacred that is infused into the ordinary, where it goes by lesser known names.
When the sacred is called hunger.
When it’s called crisis.
When it’s called feelings.
This month in The Liberation Front we’re talking about, and redefining, hunger. Using hunger to find that elusive happiness everyone’s always after. What to do with that spiritual hunger instead of filling the void with food.
You know. Cut-through-the-bullshit real talk.
I’d love to have you on the call.
