ABOUT THE BOOK

Well Nourished shows how to develop a mindful relationship to food and craft a fulfilling, joyful well-nourished life with step-by-step examples, tools, and mindful practices that can be individualized to your unique needs.

What if you were living a life where you felt well-nourished emotionally, intellectually, physically, psychologically, spiritually, socially, and creatively? What if you were mindfully present to receive, experience, plan, and engage in nourishing activities, moments, and practices regularly that fed you on many levels. What if you could maintain an inner sense of balance and nourishment even when things are not perfectly in balance, and have the tools and practices to do so rather than turn to food at those times? What if you knew how to be nourished from the inside out? What if can become reality...The Well Nourished book and programs show you how...
