As one of the originators of Intuitive Eating, I feel blessed to be involved in the profound paradigm shift that is taking place in our modern culture. The world is beginning to move away from the diet mentality and move into this gentle and healing world of Intuitive Eating. In the many years I have been helping people return to the Intuitive Eating wisdom with which they were born, I have found that the concepts integral to Intuitive Eating can also be applied to most other aspects of life. Listening carefully, whether it is to our own internal wisdom or to the important thoughts of others, deepens our life experiences. It allows us to slow down and be present for all that life offers us. As we listen, we begin to notice the nuances of events and to go more deeply into the inner meaning of life.
I am thrilled to tell you about the latest edition of Intuitive Eating. The original edition was published in 1995, followed by a second edition in 2003. The third and latest edition was published in 2012. It has been thoroughly edited and updated and has a wealth of new material, including two new chapters. There is now a chapter on bringing up kids and teens as Intuitive Eaters as well as a chapter reviewing some of the scientific research that has been conducted on Intuitive Eating.
I also continue to be excited about the release of the audio version of Intuitive Eating through Sounds True, Inc. This version is not a verbatim reading of the book but presents many new thoughts about Intuitive Eating, along with one or more guided practices for each of the principles. You will find that this audio version, with its new material and practices, will extend your understanding of how to rediscover your inner Intuitive Eater. Enjoy!
You can click here to order a copy of the book or audio book from Amazon.com or from Gürze-Salucore Eating Disorders Resource Catalogue (800-756-7533, www.edcatalogue.com) or the audio book from the publisher, Sounds True at www.soundstrue.com (version available for download to mp3 players).
I have included some representative concepts on this site under “Intuitive Eating” below, as well as some personal ideas of my own that have developed since the publication of the book. Also, you’ll discover some intimate ‘Words of Wisdom’ I have garnered during my many years of life, including some of my favorite and most helpful thoughts for managing life and overcoming obstacles to healing.
As staying current with available resources and references remains one of the most important benefits of the internet, I have assembled a select few under “Resources” that I hope will prove helpful for you. I am also including a few articles I have written, my bio, a list of my counseling services, and where and how to contact me.
I look forward to staying connected to you through this website.
*Update* The Intuitive Eating Workbook is available for order! You will find it to be an invaluable adjunct to the book but also a substantial “stand-alone” book for those who haven’t yet had the chance to read Intuitive Eating. Click to Order! Coming April 2017
