In today’s video, I talk about my friends’ new book The Four Noble Truths of Love. As always, I found a way to connect this back to our relationship with food and our bodies.
I invite you to experience Shamatha meditation with me. It’s a wonderful support for transforming your relationship with food and body.
So I screwed up the free Chat with an IE Pro this past Tuesday. I miscommunicated, sent out the wrong information, and there you have it. I sincerely apologize. What can I say? I’m an imperfect human being. Like a lot of us, I’ve been carrying a lot lately so something was bound to fall […]

This might not sound like much, but to someone struggling with emotional […]
I couldn’t pick up my son on his first birthday. We were in Sicily celebrating with his grandparents and cousins, aunts and uncles. It was a joyous occasion in every way except for the stabbing pain that extended from my middle back to beneath my left shoulder blade and the dull ache I felt down […]
