One of the themes we will be discussing in the upcoming Weekend of Nourishment is Intuitive Eating. Intuitive eating is about eating with trust, presence, flow, a quiet mind and with the intention of honoring your body. It is the most evolved way of eating you can reach on the nutritional ladder of consciousness.
With all of the conflicting and confusing messages in the nutritional world and the disconnection to ourselves due to the busy and electronically-connected life we live, our intuition gets ignored or is so quieted we don’t even know how to listen to it or hear it anymore.
Often there is confliction within ourselves between what we really want to eat and what we think we should eat. You may desire cooked food, but the latest craze tells you to eat raw. Your body may be asking for grains, but the latest fad tells you to eat a Keto diet and grains are going to make you fat. You may desire yogurt and cheese, but you have heard dairy is bad for you too. You think you should drink Kombucha because you hear how good it is for you, but when you do you think it’s gross and it makes you bloated! What to do?! The nutritional rules are endless and they can leave us feeling stressed, stifled, confused, lost and like you just want to give up and not care anymore about what you eat.
What we eat isn’t meant to be static and linear and one way. You may notice this as the seasons change or in different phases of your life. Your body naturally starts to ask for different foods, tastes and textures. The wisdom is to not fight it, but to surrender to it and offer your body what it wants – without judgement! The truth is food is just a food until you label it with an emotion – good or bad, right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy. It is our mental belief systems around food that block our body’s innate wisdom.
As you grow in consciousness with your body and food, you awaken the intuitive eater within. You will learn how to do this in The Weekend of Nourishment. You get to the point with your food where you allow your body to guide you, in the given moment, of the give day, in the given season and phase in your life as to what it wants. The mental do’s and don’ts about food are quieted by the body’s inner knowing.
What if you learned to trust what your body wants to eat with no guilt, shame, stress or conflict? How would your relationship with food look and feel like if you ate from that evolved and conscious place?
If you desire to eat from this place, if you want to become a conscious and evolved eater, if you desire to nourish yourself from a gentler and easier place, then The Weekend of Nourishment is where you will want to be. Filled with inspiring sessions you are guaranteed to nourish your body, mind and soul and forever change your relationship with food, body and self.
